    What are the benifits of Shareasale
    Hi,
    I am marketer for a niche craft site called Delphi Glass. We are thinking about becoming a merchant on an affiliate network. Could you tell me the advantages of using ShareASale over a bigger name like Google or CJs? What's your experiece working with them? Do they usually have good customer service? Are the other merchants usually good companies? Any insight you can give me would be very helpful for making our decision. Thank you.

    Low fee, amazingly quick set up process, very easy to use interface, and the most fraud-free of the many networks I have worked with.

    You might want to hire a consultant for a couple of hours to get you up to speed on what the differences are between the networks and what your needs and expectations from your affiliate program should be. The network is just one piece of the whole pie. Shareasale is great network with excellent customer service and had good tools for affiliates and merchants.

    SAS is a little more stringent on their requirements to sign up as an affiliate than some of the bigger networks. SAS programs offer merchants very detailed control of their programs and you are far less likely to encounter fraud in SAS than in some of the other larger networks.

    From an affiliate perspective, they have the best affiliate user interface of all the networks. I realize your looking in terms of the merchant side, but I still wanted to share that.

    Forgot to mention the accessibility of SAS personnel. SAS's President is Brian Littleton and you will frequently see him offering assistance right here on the forum. Trying to reach some of the other network's personnel, even for a simple question can be frustrating.

    Bigger is not necessarily better in affiliate marketing, there are lots of landmines to avoid with other networks. SAS has been the affiliate's choice year after year for a reason - don't waste your time, join them and hire an OPM to stear your program in the right direction.

    Welcome to our family ...

    P.S.: If you want a more detailed explanation, fell free to call me and I will expalian the full details with all networks and give you some free advice.

    From the affiliate side many people look to SAS merchants first because of their stance against parasites.

    In fact you will find many terrific affiliates work exclusively with SAS merchants.

    From a merchant's perspective, these are the precise reasons we are proud to be a part of the ShareASale Premier Merchant Program (which means that we're exclusive to ShareASale). The people and program are top-notch, and we have been (and remain) thrilled to do business with both ShareASale and the great affiliates in their network.

    And, as anyone who was at the ASW09 Triathlon knows, they look great in tracksuits.
