July 31st, 2009, 10:16 PM #1New to ShareASale and Welcoming Advice
We just joined ShareASale as a merchant and are set up with the basics (auto-deposit, a couple of banners, and the landing page). We understand the importance of our affiliate partners and have set up a lucrative program to reward their efforts (10% on subscriptions, for the life of the subscription).
Since we're new at this, I'm looking for advice on how to best market our program and reach out to the affiliate membership, and if there is anything we may do differently to make our program more marketable from the affiliate's perspective.
Thanks for your help.

As Haiko suggested, there's lots of useful info in the Merchant Best Practices Forum (start with the very first post, Michael Coley's excellent "Consolidated List of Affiliate-Friendly Policies" and then follow up with his list of "Other 'Must Read' Threads for Merchants"). I strongly urge you to spend several hours reading through the excellent advice in that forum; then spend a few more hours using the "search" function to answer questions.
I have some free advice for merchants, too (see the link in my signature).
Of course, you should also purchase a "New Program Announcement" (http://www.abestweb.com/advertising/) here -- not only does it let you announce your affiliate program, it also creates a place for prospective affiliates to ask questions.

Thank you to both of you for your help. Sounds like I need to get a very large Latte and do some serious reading!
