    Best Contact Management (CMS) for Affilliate Manager?
    I'm looking for suggestions.

    Would like to track contact info, including websites, comments about websites, promotions discussed, email threads etc..

    What do you use to keep in touch with affiliates, to collect the data in a usable format?

    I make spread sheets myself. I also want to get some advise on collecting data in an efficient way.

    Search for CRM instead of CMS, you'll find what you need.

    Used Act! for 15 years but was too expensive to move to a server (IIS) for a team. Used Sugar/CRM which is open source/free for several years. Functionality was not the greatest as browser based.

    Have been working with eSilverBullet on their beta. They take my suggestions and implement it. They also include Composite which lets me check stats for all my programs at once.

    I use Batchbook - it's cheap and configurable to meet your needs and interfaces with a lot of cool third party applications like MailChimp to make it easy to build custom mail lists as needed.

    Why, Bill, whatever do you mean? Surely you're not implying anything unseemly...?

    Hey Chuck... Mike Nunez actually turned me on to Batchbook a couple of years back. It's cool because it's not trying to be SalesForce, which I never thought translated well to affiliate marketing. You can tweak it by building your own custom info forms that collect exactly what you need. I just used the MailChimp integration for the first time and it was pretty cool to be able to do a search based on a tag for the team the affiliates were fans of, then be able to build a list and export to build a list on mailchimp on the fly. Depending on your record count, you can be in for as low as 35 per month.

    Sounds exactly what I have been looking for. Been using Zoho but mainly for individual emails to affiliates. I will definitely check it out.
