    Affiliate B2B Networks
    Can someone recommend a good affiliate network that focuses on B2B? We are currently running our affiliate program in CJ, but find that most of the affiliates specialize in B2C and retail.

    Cindy,

    I would suggest looking into Reach24, LinkShare and RevResponse.

    re: B2B Affiliate Networks
    Cindy,

    Most of the B2B programs with good conversion are running their own program in 1ShoppingCart or iDevAffiliate. B2B in CJ had low conversion, couldn't keep enough transactions going to stay on that platform (as an affiliate.) What is your reason for running your program on a network?

    Best,

    Justin

    Cindy, true B2B has been a tough sell. We have optimized our domain/hosting/web design merchant with B2C. All of the B2B sites want CPM deals or CPC but are not interested in working as an affiliate. Too much adverting dollars are dangled in front of them to care about something that complicated.

    Hi Cindy,

    I have experiance of working for TradeKey B2B, i worked there as Affiliate exec. we managed our in-house Affiliate program. As far as my suggestions, do create your in house program too. Because it will be easy for you to monitor, control the cost and coordination in live framework....

    As B2B does have high traffic inflow so i also recommend you the above suggestion...

    What's the name of your B2B ?

    B2B affiliate is one of the roughest for affiliate manager as well as for affiliates. Affiliates normally don't prefer to promote B2B programs. They would promote it if they are getting good CPM or CPC deals.

    Even for that affiliate manager must have to find personally and invite them to join the program.

    I've been talking to Partner Commerce and they seem like a pretty legit B2B network. They're pretty new as a company (late 2009), but the founders are veterans. We're running an in-house program that's working well, but I almost feel like we'll have to go with a network to take it to the next level... reaching the big boys.

    @hittjw - you sound like you know what you're doing here. Maybe we can chat sometime?

    B2B and small, private affiliate network source?
    We are about to launch a membership-based training site where we will be selling monthly memberships and one at a time virtual products. It will be mildly exclusive - we are looking for a maximum number of members who want premium attention.

    We want an affiliate program that will allow our guest instructors to refer people from their networks. We are not looking for generic affiliates at this time. We are using a built in cart and PayPal and would love a simple solution that will track the affiliate links inbound and integrate easily with PayPal for payment. We expect no more than 50 colleagues as affiliates and possibly far fewer.

    Any suggestion on how to manage this? Reading this post it seems I am looking for a B2B type affiliate manager solution??
    Thanks much!

    Can anyone comment on their experience with RevResponse/TradePub either as an affiliate or as a merchant? I'm strongly considering using them for B2B lead gen.

    Thanks!!

    Shareasale is developing a bigger B2B presence actually. We have 3 B2B companies running there now, and there are a number of the retail affiliates that are looking more at B2B.
