The Affiliate Juice Podcast is up and running with bandwidth provided by GeekCast.FM. This is going to be a fun project and I'm certain it will evolve over the next few months. The idea is to review new programs that give affiliates the best chance for success. We see way too many programs launching in the major networks every month that have no clue what it really takes to recruit super affiliates and become profitable quickly.
My partner, Joe Magennis, and I will examine select programs at no cost and analyze the main features, giving other new merchants a good model of what works. We hope that our best practices will spur merchants to make changes to their programs to fit the needs of affiliates. On the flip side, it should be a great place for affiliates to hear about new programs.
I have a few rules set up on the guidelines and submission form on how we will choose merchants to review but I want the ABestWeb community to know that we are open to any managers who submit their program, whether they are outsourced managers, in-house managers, owners of the program or just someone stuck with babysitting.
We don't have all the answers on best practices but we feel our podcast can contribute to the discussion. If you have any suggestions regarding what details we should cover or how the show is formatted, please comment.
Episode 1 highlights my program, Flirty Aprons. We had to start somewhere! I've already received the next submission from another OPM. You can hear that one in two weeks.
