    Our Program on Share A Sale - No results ... Please help!
    Hello,

    We have created our program on share a sale since almost 1 year. And although SAS itself is awesome as a platform we've got zero results! And now the monthly fees started to count because we got no orders from share a sale.

    We have created a great website, great offers, great commission "It was $50 at the beginning for a $3 product!" and nice looking banners, but no results.

    There were lots of new affiliates requests, but none of them sent us any valid order. And we really believe in affiliate marketing and consider affiliates as a reliable and driven sales team, but we were really disappointed by the outcome!

    Should we stop our affiliate program and lose the money and efforts? Do you have any advise?

    Arminds,

    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/

    The monthly minimum on ShareASale is only $25, which is an extremely low price point to consider dropping a channel.
    Thanks,

    Dear Barian,

    Thanks a lot for your valuable reply. I really appreciate

    Of course $25 is not a high monthly fee especially that it is waived if the commissions are higher. The only problem that we have been targeted only by coupon and promotion sites that doesn't attract true and loyal customers.

    Maybe as you said it needs harder work. We didn't reach a final decision yet. But after your reply I believe we will keep the merchant account much longer and do some efforts to drive more results.

    If you have more tips I would really appreciate.

    Thanks again for your time.

    Best wishes,
    Shady Al Aref

    There are dozens and dozens of resources available at http://blog.shareasale.com including the "Coupon Tidal Wave" at http://blog.shareasale.com/2013/03/0...on-tidal-wave/

    The bottom line is that there are a lot of coupon sites because a lot of people like coupons. There's nothing that could really be done about that! However, you shouldn't let it distract you if that is not the type of publisher you want just decline them and seek out the ones that you want.
