    Affiliates have signed up but they are not active
    Apologies before I begin - I am new to the affiliate game. I have a WordPress theme shop and decided to start an affiliate program to boost sales. 37 affiliates now been added to my program through Share a Sale but only 1 of them is active. Is this common? or am I doing something wrong? Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Ozhef - I just wrote up this same post for another question here at ABestWeb, but honestly it is nearly the same advice.

    Affiliate Marketing is a long term growth strategy - not one that can be measured in a very short time period such as 1 month, 3 months, or even a year. There are a lot of resources that can teach you how to grow this very profitable channel, some here, and some at http://blog.shareasale.com in our "Resources" section. You'll need a good long term strategy, and time to commit to recruiting bloggers and content publishers to complement a solid coupon strategy.

    Blogs and content sites will continue to be the most sought-after Affiliates by all of the retailers out there, and as a result they will continue to be hard to recruit and cultivate - everyone wants them! You may want to consider an Agency to help you with this strategy there are quite a few represented here on AbestWeb.

    Check out this post as a place to start: http://blog.shareasale.com/2014/03/1...ngs-to-do-now/

    And this for the "Coupon Tidal Wave" that comes with initial new programs: http://blog.shareasale.com/2013/03/0...on-tidal-wave/
