    Volume of Affiliates on CJ, LS, GAN, SAS
    My company's getting ready to commit to an affiliate network to drive new user signups. I'm trying to get an idea, though, of the sort of volume of affiliates we could expect to see upon joining one of these larger networks.

    I know a lot depends on what the offer is, but assume the payout is comparable to other merchants, and the creatives are, let's say, average in their ability to convert.

    Hearsay and personal experience are both appreciated.

    Much thanks.

    As an affiliate I would say that you mentioned the "Major 4" in
    your title. Most affiliates are on those 4.

    Thanks. I guess what I'm asking is, from a merchant's point view, how many affiliates would be reasonable for me to expect to see applying for my offer?
    Should I plan on having to do all of the recruiting myself?

    In answer to your other question, the more you are involved in recruiting the better for your business.

    Bryce you can expect 100 to 1000 sign-ups in the first month depending on how well your offer appeals to affiliates. Of that 90% will most likely do nothing.

    CJ is a good place because they provide direct deposit for the affiliates as a payout method. That's why I like CJ most than the others.

    Just to jump in here, Affiliate Window also offers direct deposit for affiliates; you may also choose to be paid once or twice per month.

    ABW's Matt Bidinger (I.M.O.G.) did a great network comparison that may also help you decide which network to choose. Chuck is exactly right, while you may get a huge number of sign-ups, that's not necessarily the right way to evaluate a program or network's strength because very few may actually do anything. After 14 years in the industry, I could tell you stories......
