Thanks for the reply and your valuable feedback.
I'm so into programming the site that I didn't give it complete thought. I have contacted a few well-known companies to get leads (intially, I have thought to buy 10,000 leads). What do you recommend, will that be good enough to join in or should I buy more?
I understand, before joining a program, experienced and top performing affiliates judge a program fully. What else would you recommend apart from the leads?

Topten, are you considering being a merchant and paying on leads or paying on sales? Obviously if you plan to pay on sales then your website needs to be up and running and able to sell before you can expect any success with an affiliate program. If you're paying on leads, that might be a decent way to drive traffic but I'd still agree with flamingoworld that you need some quality content up to prove to people that your site is worth using.

I understand and fully agree with you. Content is king and to make some reputation and faith among site visitors and members, it can't be overlooked. However, its a classified site (Products display site) where sellers can display their products and buyers can buy products without even creating an account. It is a little bit different idea from what you see at amazon.com, ebay.com and other sites which charge 1). Charges per product listing, 2). Commission charge on every product sale, 3). Pushing buyers/sellers to use a particular 'transaction method'.
I don't really find any room to put content. I mean, what a site like Amazon do to put content apart from getting 'user reviews' of products. Thats what exactly will by my source for generating content.
As FlamingoWorld mentioned, "It is a catch 22, you need content to draw people but you need people to get the content." This is what Amazon, Ebay and thousands of other sites do to generate content from users. They do a lot of other things to generate quality content and I can't really compare my site with them right now, but I do understand where you coming from. I believe, I have to put my mind together to two things. Content and Leads. lol I guess, everything revolves around these two entities.

The issue is why would people want to list their stuff if no one is there to see it. And why would people come if there is nothing to buy. I really have no advice, I have no idea how one would make it work.

Split from TrishLyn's SAS thread because this is more a discussion of a specific type of program that is not on topic with the original thread topic
