    Hi -

    I've received a lot of inquiries about my decision to migrate from Be Free to My Affiliate Program, so I've poured through my notes to compose a case study of sorts: the issues I had, and why I made the move - read the case study.

    I don't think that being with a network necessarily helps a merchant to be known, beyond being listed in the network directory.

    In that case, the merchant is lumped in with hundreds of other affiliate programs. I like what CJ does with their keyword search to find advertisers - this can certainly help a new merchant to be found because of their specific product line or service.

    I also think Performics is a good choice for merchants that have a catalog of offers. If their model works for a given merchant, it is more of a hands off solution where they will recruit higher end affiliates.

    Some reasons I attribute to the growth of quality affiliates in my program were:

    - working with brokers that got a piece of the action for bringing on super affiliates
    - co-marketing with like affiliate programs
    - authoring affiliate newsletter content and making it available for others to use (with credit back to my program)
    - participation in discussion boards
    - word of mouth
