    Affiliates program manager : Right Steps ?

    Hi all,
    We start our affiliate program 3 months ago.

    I wonder if someone here managed an affiliate program from Start to success ?

    If yes, can you tell me what were the steps you took to make it successfull ?

    Best regards,

    get the word out...

    motivate, conjol, beg your affiliates

    repeat...

    3 months is not enough time to judge how you're doing... it takes many affiliate that long to add you to their pages and get those pages indexed...

    Go back in the ABW time machine and look at the 1st 3 months spend here at ABW. Their AM listened, learned and proved to all by taking a DEAD program and increasing affiliates sales by 800% while picking up thousands of active affiliates within those first 3 months.

    Whoops ...the Merchant program for the above research was TigerDirect and the posts launched ABW into it's current position of being the "make it real" affiliate forum.

    Just remember as your read this tread....

    concider this, it was a one hit wonder from serval years ago. This level of success has not been duplicated since... by this AM

    The truth is, since then there have been many failed programs and only a few with mediocure success... resulting in many bad feelings because of unfulfilled promises.

    Yet some here at ABW hold this AM up as a AM God... go figure????

    Yes, I offended some.. However, the truth speaks for it's self... we all can ignore the truth but we cant hide from it forever....

    the truth will always work it's way to the top...

    Success factors were proven and duplicated a few months later with Overstock for all to see. Furnishing affiliates with high conversion landing pages, better creatives, with an honest AM verifying weekly all sales were reporting to the network worked Prompt payment sealed the deal and affiliates signed up and produced in droves. Only when a group of TD affiliuates pressured Andy for a stick to beat the others TD affiliates over the head and whack them in the SERPs did it fall apart. The introduction of feed spam mentality into the affiliate cookie arena just allowed a few to demand inordinate AM time and got them both hooked on the feed drug.

    Wink Programm announcement
    Hi ecomCity,
    did you see my post in the "New program annoucement" ?
    did you find it attractive ?
    I saw you have an Health and beauty section on your website, and in that section you have Dental P..., what they offer is just a small portion of what we offer to our customers for a very reasonable price.
    Maybe should you read our offer

    You do have a viable 40.00/month family medical cost savings package, covering much more then just Dental. Having an Indy program and nice clean website is not a drawback either. I'll join up and put up some links and digest this new networks reporting and tracking capabilities.
