    Time to launch?
    Hello all,

    I've recently decided to join ShareASale as my primary affiliate network, in addition to our own in-house affiliate program. We're ready to launch on ShareASale at any time, but haven't committed to a date as of yet.

    From the experience of other SAS merchants and affiliates here, what would be a good time to launch our program? All my previous research has indicated that December is a miserable month to launch new programs - is this true? And if so, would early January be a reasonable time to launch? I want to get as much out of being on the "new affiliate programs" list as possible.

    Thanks for your time!

    Agreed. I'm in mid-launch for a new program since our original date of 11/15 was pushed back due to technical issues.

    Traffic is teetering, at best. I'm hoping for a flux in Jan.

    Thanks for the responses all, we've decided to hold off on our launch until Mid-January.
