    Google Affiliate program
    Hello,

    Has anyone used the google affiliate program? If you have used google affiliate program to attract affiliates how successful has it been and does it cost alot? I just got shell shocked from some of the big affiliate programs asking for 5-10k just to start. I am looking to attract B2B affiliates and your help is greatly appreciated!

    Upfront costs to be listed within a network are always negotiable, much easier with some than others, but always negotiable. No matter what the product or service, start-up costs or fees are usually put in place for one of three reasons: 1. As an attempt to position the product/service as "upper echelon" and attract clientele with deeper pockets; 2. To pay sales commissions to the individual who brought on the account; or a way to make sure a big ticket purchase stays on the books regardless of first impressions (b/c you're already invested). If it's a down payment which goes toward future sales/commissions that's something different, but even then it should be correlated to the overall amount of exposure the network takes on.

    In my experience with GAN, the $500 per month is a "minimum" spend amount. Meaning you have to hit that in total sales/commissions or you pay it anyway.

    just an opinion, good luck in your search.
