    Dedicated Affiliate Website Pros and Cons
    Hi everyone!

    I was wondering if it is advisable to create a dedicated website for an affiliate program. Our company has various products we offer and each site has a different URL and in the major products, we have an affiliate page that goes along with it.

    I need your advice and feedback on such an idea.

    Thank you in advance to all!

    Websites are cheap and I think, in your case, it could only help. Just don't ignore the info on each individual site too.

    Greg,

    That sounds good! The old affiliate page for each site provides the idea and an invitation to prospective affiliates to enthuse them to join; and the dedicated affiliate site, where the goodies are.

    Thank you so much! Wow!

    Just a followup question:

    Does anyone here owns a website for their affiliate program only? I'm searching the internet but can't seem to find feedback from their own experience.

    I would appreciate it if anyone can share.

    Thank you!

    We've put together a website / blog for our affiliate program. It should hopefully be a helpful network of information for affiliates, while not cluttering the main service website. I can't see why it wouldn't be helpful and I've seen several other great examples of such. Aff.biz is one that comes to mind for example.

    Steven,

    Your site looks promising. It made me think if we're ready for this kind of busy environment here. And this would entail a really dedicated affiliate manager to do that. As you know, some affiliate managers do other tasks as well within the company.

    But nevertheless, this is a great insight on our plans moving forward.

    Thanks a lot!

    I can't think of any offhand but have seen a number of them, usually done for exactly for this purpose.

    Most I found were directories. I probably am using the wrong keywords in my search so try and try, as they say...

    Legacy Learning has a dedicated affiliate site, Girly Checks does, most OPMs do... there are a large number of programs here at ABW that have a separate domain that is dedicated to their affiliate support.
