As an affiliate, if your goal is to get subaffiliates under you, do you set up a link directly to the affiliate sign up page? Now if you also want to direct some of your visitors to shop at this same site, that would be a different link to the home page of the site? Can you effectively do both simultaneously on your site so as to offer 2 different links, one to gain some new subaffiliates and the other to attract visitors to browse the site and maybe make a purchase?
