    How do I get more affiliates and get them to be active?
    Hello,

    Currently we have 65 affiliates signed up with us. Generally, only 4-6 actually receive hits per day. Question is, why are so few affiliates promoting or getting clicks for our affiliate program. How do I get more affiliates and more importantly how do I get them to be more active?

    Thanks in advance! centercaps

    Centercaps,

    I am a newbie too and feel your pain! How long has your program been up?

    Shareasale is a little different than networks like LinkConnector, where you can search for affiliates. In ShareASale, outside of organic traffic, you have to advertise to recruit more affiliates. One thing you can do right away is look under the the advertising section for ABestWeb, and do a new program announcement. Outside of that, there are more expensive options through ShareASale, but the announcement through ABW is very reasonable.

    Well, gotta run for the day. Hope this helps somewhat

    centercaps,

    As you can see I edited your thread to make it clearer and correct.

    As your a pure niche product I'd let Google be my friend to find affiliates ... take all your keywords (ie Rims) and contact all the the site owners with a personal email (not a form letter that would be spam) to invite them to join your affiliate program. BTW, car forums are gems also You will get out what you put in to it.
    Continued Success,

    Haiko
