    Newb merchant considering affiliate management
    Hello everybody -
    I'm fairly new to affiliate marketing and recently started a program within the ShareASale network. I'm a one-man-show, and don't have a lot of time to devote to managing my program. Any suggestions for companies (or individuals) who have a proven track record when it comes to affiliate management? I've spoken with a couple of affiliate managers, and they've quoted me around $750 - $1000/month. This is about double what I'd like to spend. I haven't really tried negotiating yet, but do you think it would be reasonable to offer a higher commission rate and a lower monthly rate? For example, instead of $750/month, perhaps offering $400/month plus 20% in commission?

    Hey Skip,

    As time is your biggest issue - have you not thought about marketing a product that gives you a bigger margin? so you may sell less - although you will make more in the long run?

    That's how I got started in affiliate marketing and wouldn't change my method for anything!
