    What is the correct amount of Text Links
    We are in the process of creating the text links for our program, I want to know what is the correct amount of text links that should be created?

    I was planning on creating them for each one of our categories, but that brings me into the 1000's.

    If I do text links to the products, we then go into the 10,000's.

    Also to affiliates care what the title of the text links are, or do they change them to fit their needs.

    Thank you in advance for any help received.

    This affiliate wants a data base. One with some thought put into it. Categories, good descriptions, etc.

    Then a few normal sized banners.

    I can make my own text links.

    So when you say a database are you talking about datafeed?

    yup

    Also consider:
    "auto approve" by country
    auto deposit
    and phone tracking

    Your welcome.

    Finally, bear in mind that most affiliates that really know much are at the Las Vegas Summit right now so you might not get much real help here for a few days.

    Use the slow time to work on your data base/datafeed. Sloppy feeds are a real sore point with many.

    Our datafeed is looking real good so far.

    Dealing with banners, do you request custom banners or work with what the merchant provides.

    I am outsourcing the banners for now and I was also looking to create one for each category. Do you think that is wise?

    Hi BiggShaad, welcome to ABW. You are asking some good questions to have a productive program. Some of these questions have been asked by other merchants with a new program startup so it might help to read through the helpful info at Starting an Affiliate Program & Merchant Q&A - ABestWeb Affiliate Marketing Forum
    Good luck!
