I’m wanting to start an affiliate program. Can you tell me the best way to start? Thanks, Bill.
Bill, starting an affiliate program isn’t really that hard, but it does require a marketing expertise. If your shopping cart doesn’t support an affiliate program, natively, then you can use services such as AffiliateClicks.com who offers affiliate management software on a monthly subscription rate. Commission Junction (cj.com), MyAffiliateProgram (myaffiliateprogram.com) and NetTraction.com offer affiliate tracking software and even offer fully managed services. If you don’t have the time or expertise in promoting your affiliate program you can use the fully managed recruiting and affiliate management services which can range as high as $10,000 per month
