Starting an affiliate program is something I never regret doing because it gave me financial freedom such that I don’t need to work to earn money. If starting an affiliate program has always been your dream, I will help you start one (I’m not going to give you money, lol). I’m going to give you solid tips to help you get started.
If you want more affiliates to join and start promoting your products, then the tips I’ll be sharing with you in this article will be of very good use. Getting more affiliates for your affiliate program is a very easy thing to do and I will show you how.
Before you think of starting your own affiliate program, here are lists of things to get you started.
Step 1# – You need your personal website (a blog is not allowed)
If you want more affiliates to join your network, you need a professional website. The major reason you need a website is to help boost your credibility and also make the affiliates see you as someone ready for business. Get a real website and build a presentable sign up page.
Now, I believe you own the product and it’s in a niche that has less competition ( if it’s not, it’s risky). If you meet these requirements, then you are set for business. You won’t need to beg the ‘’heavens’’ to get affiliates to start promoting your product.
Step 2# – Display a list of benefits for signing up.
Yeah! This will help boost the morale of the affiliates. And ensure you give them access to the marketing tools they need to start promoting your product, the affiliate network you’re using to promote your product, the price of your product, and all the necessary things you feel will be important for them to start promoting your product.
Step 3# – Submit your Sign Up page to affiliate directories.
They’re a ton of affiliate networks online today, but if you’re confused in getting one, you can search Google and type in ‘’top affiliate directories’’. Then start submitting your sign up page to each and every one of them.
The best affiliate programs today
As this is your first time of starting an affiliate program, it’s important you join the best affiliate networks so you can get the necessary workmanship and tools to help you start making sales immediately.
The best affiliate networks today are (trust me, I use them for my affiliate program): Shareasale, Paydotcom and Clickbank. Their fee is expensive but you won’t regret joining because it’s definitely worth it. After joining one of these networks, you will instantly get multitudes of affiliates promoting your products for you and it’s possible to make millions your first month if your product is really exceptional!
One beautiful thing about this, is that the more products you sell on this network, the more affiliates you get promoting your products.
All the tips I’ve shared in this article, are based on my personal experiences and let me tell you something, there’s much gain in starting an affiliate program because you won’t have to waste your money, you won’t have to be there to monitor who’s selling and who’s not, and most importantly, you don’t have to be there for those cash to start pouring in!
Step 4# – You need a back-end marketing strategy
You need this because it gives you the opportunity to make sales from one person over and over again. (Remember, your profit comes from this set of people).
It’s up to you.
It’s not difficult to start an affiliate program, all you need to do is to act!
Don’t say you don’t know much about how the system works, instead take action because you will learn on the job.
Start making use of the tips I shared above and you’ll be glad you did.
