    I'm sorry if this is inappropriate, I am a newbie to this board, but...we have a home and garden affiliate program, which those active have shown that it has the capability of bringing in substantial revenue, however we have many publishers who have joined but remain in-active. Does anyone have suggestions on how to motivate those that are inactive to try out the program and see its potential?

    Thanks!

    I would think thta those who have sites which push realestate -home improvement to gardening and hardware store items would place your "find-a-contractor or local handiman" links on their pages.

    Hello welcome to ABW
    Maybe a follow up email to your publishers talking about your program, usually affiliates like AMs that keep their publishers up to date on whats happening. Sometimes affiliates sign up for a program and never hear a thing from them.

    Thanks for the responses! We do have a lot of home & garden and real estate focused sites sign up, but then remain inactive, even though it is a great match. I agree that following up is the way to go! Any advice on finding really good affiliates and getting them to join our program?

    Thanks!

    You're on the right board for finding good affiliates. Maybe talk to Haiko about announcing your program, opening a forum, etc.

    YA

    On another program I've managed for 4 years we have 667 affiliates and only 10 to 20 are worth anything.

    Well pulling out of CJ was the ABSOLUTE WRONG thing to do. I believe you just shot yourself in the foot.
    Thanks!

    You may want to send them a message asking them to please promote your program and throw in a few ideas by looking through their site. This may get theminvolved again. If after a couple time asking them and warning them. Drop them. They are not worth your management.
