    Lightbulb Where should I announce my new program?
    Hi boys and girls,

    Where can I announce my new program for free? I'm the affiliate manager for a new program. We just launched on shareasale and I would like to know which directories, forums, blogs are most visible to affiliates.

    I prefer free, but if the announcement is paid what is a reasonable rate?

    thanks y'all

    You can advertise your program for free on the home page of Google and Shareasale, just tell you want it for FREE!

    I have found a few free sites. JVzoo.com and Manta.com.
    Has anyone used those sites?

    I read my daily emails from Manta Tip of the Day as I am a small business owner. Is that the market you are advertising to?

    Is the premise of your merchant account on Shareasale to find a way to only advertise for free and make money? Seems like you should be advertising to affiliates on the value proposition of your program and what you are selling.

    I just learned about manta just from searching around on google, i have to signed up but not sure what to do now. I guess just look for businesses and connect with them. Have you found affiliates on manta? What else do you use it for?

    Also, jvzoo.com is free but i have been having issues uploading my product for some reason.

    Have you found affiliates on manta?
    That would be an incredible waste of time as it has no relationship to affiliate marketing. Seems you are focused on finding only free sources to promote an affiliate sign-up link. Are you the owner of the program?

    For a couple hundred dollars you could have placed ads/announcements here and at several other affiliate venues. Lunch money, really.

    If you're not serious enough about your business to invest a small sum of money like that, how do you expect affiliates (or anybody) to take you seriously? You have already succeeded in destroying your reputation with affiliates by being so hardily determined to chisel for a few dollars.
