Although I am fairly new to affiliate marketing, I have been a marketer for a loooong time and have been involved with internet marketing pretty much from day one.
One of the things I have found extremely useful in managing my affiliates (I'm the Marketing Director at my company) is to send out a monthly email with basic marketing tips and tricks to help them increase their visibility and sales.
Yes, I know that this may seem a bit counter-intuitive. If an affiliate of mine also represents a competitor of ours, my advice may help increase the competition's sales.

affiliate system. Think about what sort of visitors your site(s)
attract and what exactly they are seeking. We'll be happy to work with
you to create banners and/or links tying your visitors with our
Sorry, for the snip... I just gave you the hints and left out things which would identify our site and program.
I hope this is helpful!
