    Speaking as a pilot and an affiliate, this will be interesting to follow. I would like to find a couple of good aviation-type merchants. Good Luck.

    Welcome to ABW. You should be able to find a lot of answers right here.

    First question - why are you posting in the Commission Junction forum. I would suggest looking at ShareASale and/or Buy.at as possible networks.

    You might want to contact the affiliate networks and let then do some of the education work for you.

    Here are the Top networks:
    CJ (Commission Junction)
    Linkshare
    GAN (Google Affiliate Network was purchased by the big G. a few months ago)

    Smaller but fits nicely for some:
    ShareaSale (SaS)

    You can always change networks. Make you own plans/goals and revise as you get started and lean more.

    Good luck!

    PS: Also there are many good affiliate managers here. You might want to ask for a quick tutorial from one of them for a little fee. "Post" you needs and some might offer their services.

    Hi summitaviation,
    Your best bet is to go with a network that can provide you with an account manager for support and training for a reasonable cost OR an affiliate management company like AMWSO or alike.

    Feel free to give us at Webgains a ring if you would like run through on +1 212 391 7317.

    As others mention, ABW is a wonderful resource, but it requires an investment of time -- spend several hours reading through sections like the "merchant best practices" forum here.

    I've posted a somewhat lengthy outline of issues merchants face when considering a new affiliate program -- see the "affiliate advice for merchants" link in my signature.

    It ain't easy A LOT of work, lot of time, lot of patience, as I am finding out. Advice Haiko gave me, read, interact, run ethical program (treat others as you would want to be treated). It is full time. As mentioned there are some very good managers available to run program, or you can do yourself as you will find members here being very helpful.

    Best of luck

    SummitAviation,

    Contact me at chuck@hamrick.biz as I may be interested in taking on your program on a pure rev share basis. Aviation has always been a passion of mine and I have been out of it for a while. Would like to find an aviation based program to get back to that passion.

    A man after my own heart. Way to go, Chuck.

    Suzanne, you'll be hard-pressed to find a sweeter sounding offer that what Chuck has put on the table.
