    I recently started an affiliate program for my web hosting business. I provide the affiliates a banner with the affiliate code embedded into the banner link. I am getting very few clicks on these banners. Are banners the best method for affiliates to get visitors to see the program they are promoting? If not, what is a better method? Examples would be helpful.

    No. People are more inclined to click a text link.

    Is there any specific text that works well for affiliates? An example would be helpful.

    Yup those are the ones. The point is that people tend to block out banners in some shape or form (be it mentally or with a program).

    Your affiliates would be best served by working their affiliate link(s)into their content. Or to make specific reccomendations.
