    New Merchant Seeking Advice
    I'm a new merchant with a few related products to sell. We cater towards a niche market (wedding vendors) and our products range from about $100-$240. We're trying to find out how to get in front of more people and sell more products. We're new to affiliate systems so any advice is greatly appreciated.

    We're happy to give 30% commissions, but we just don't know how to get started. Any advice? Thanks so much for your time and wisdom

    Bridaluxe is an excellent all wedding network. Share a Sale has a ton of Wedding Affiliate programs already as well so they both have a bunch of Wedding Affiliates.

    You can use the Share a Sale forum here for any questions to them or write to Jeff at Bridaluxe if you want them as well. I would recommend both networks for a wedding vendor, but make sure you have a programmer put last click gets the sale code into your cart.

    Before you say you are willing to give 30% commission, be sure that you include network costs (unless you are inhouse) and other associated costs. If your margin is 30% you might need to lower what you actually give affiliates

    I am intrigued as to what your product is. I was involved in the wedding industry for 20-ish or so years.
