    Maybe too late
    Well,

    What do I say?

    I have used affiliate programs for over 5 years. I have spent hours, maybe a year, doing copy and paste. Checking my sites. Called some people at a large corporation trying to get answers.

    Some people use datafeeds. A bit confusing. What do I do?

    Some people are big affiliate managers some are not.

    Most people do not like to share information. Then what do you do?

    With over 7 million web affiliates memberships...WoW

    How can it be done easily?

    -Thomas

    Hello Thomas,

    In my opinion, if you can get 4-7% of your affiliate signups to make regular sales each month steady ... your doing very well.

    I'm not really sure on what business model your referring to in regards to "datafeed - what do I do?" question.

    Many affiliates run mutliple sites and prefer programs with datafeeds to quickly update all the sites they manage. These type of marketers prefer and rely on programs with datafeeds ... then look at other programs as a secondary option if they can't find a quality merchant w/datafeed for a particular nich product.

    I hope this reply helps some.

    I do use my application Now. That's now that I and a team of programmers took the time to create such a utility to do it.

    I didn't mean to confuse anyone.

    There are some affiliates interested in RSS feeds. The only thing that I have found truly negative about RSS affiliate usage is the fact that many of the RSS type affiliates (not all) are basically spamming your program offer. The traffic coming from this area is generally not quality traffic (not always - depends on many variables).

    If you send me an email to ray (at) designerwiz.com I'd be happy to give you some software for RSS feed creation.
