    How to sign-up for networks when running a cashback/ loyalty site
    Hello everyone -

    I am in the process of building a cashback website and the front end of the website is almost complete. The next step for me is to apply at various networks to have merchants listed on my website. At this point I don't have a niche; I want to list as many merchants as I can and I'll figure out what I'll do from there. I have read that the process of applying at various networks when you're a loyalty site is different than if you're a "regular" affiliate. Is this true and if so can anyone fill me in on what I have to do? How long will the process take and can anyone offer me tips on what I should do?

    Thank you!
    Irwin

    Most networks require that you identify yourself as loyalty/incentive. Your first step is to get accepted by the network so focus there. One of the most important things you need to have nailed down is the membership tracking. If you fail to have good tracking your members will leave you.

    Thanks Chuck. I'll start applying at networks soon and I'll research this forum to see what I can expect when applying.

    Membership tracking; I have to read about that. I'm currently researching various loyalty sites and trying to see what I can do differently. Any suggestions, Chuck or anyone else out there?

    google:

    rewards shopping
    points shopping
    rebate shopping

    You will have to figure out which are affiliate sites by the links out.
