    Recommendations for an affiliate management software
    Hello!

    I'd like your guys' expert advice on affiliate management software.

    I'm starting an affiliate program next week, and like to know what are some of the best tools you have used for the following purposes:

    1. Generate affiliate links and tracks activity
    2. Find new affiliates and promote my program
    3. Payment service for affiliates

    Are there any services I should sign up to or software I need to purchase,
    or can I deal with free tools for now until I get big?

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Hi there,

    Would you ever consider creating your program in an affiliate network such as Shareasale, Commission Junction, Google Affiliate Network, or Linkshare? They will cover all of these requirements well. There is a start-up cost involved, but each network varies from affordable to more of a bigger investment. I prefer Shareasale for programs just starting out. It's a good a good quality network with lots of features, but a start-up cost that is a fraction of the bigger Networks. Good luck with your new program - exciting!

  3. Thanks From:

    Thanks for the advice.. however
    My product is an instructional gift package themed after '50 shades of grey'..
    It is considered an adult product since the package contains DVD's with instructional erotic content.

    For that reason, I think Clickbank, CJ and Google affiliate networks are out of the question for me, are they not?

    Either way, thank you so much for the prompt reply!

    ShareASale would probably do just fine for you and they are more affordable than CJ and Google anyway. I know they have some adult toy stores and a bunch of lingerie shops on there - so you should be fine.

    We have a private Adult forum where you can openly discuss your site, program. Looks like you are opt-d in already. It is OK to advertise your program there too at no cost and is the only forum like that here.
