If your online store or marketplace could do with some more exposure leading to more sales, you may consider starting an affiliate program to achieve just that. Of course this is not to be considered as a replacement of the traditional SEO and SEM activities to promote your site. What an affiliate program will do for you is that it will create more traffic to your site from many other sites who had already agreed to become your affiliate in exchange for a financial benefit. Such financial benefits may be anything you would deem beneficial for both yourself and your affiliate. Examples are many e.g. commissions as a percentage or fixed amount, per lead, per sign up, per sale, per download, per subscription, etc.
Surely you may now think that starting an affiliate program would demand even a greater level of involvement on your part to run your business as it would greatly sap into your time to market your program, coordinating with your affiliates regularly, developing marketing collateral for the affiliates (banners, text links, videos, widgets, etc.). Well, that would depend on the size of your business. If your site requires a lot people to run the various things as daily activities, then running your affiliate program could be also absorbed into it as just one more of those activities.
But how about if you are like me where only a handful of people are running with all the critical functions of day to day operations? Managing an affiliate program may certainly become a handful. Yet you would want to consider it because it will lead to better sales. So what if I told you that you can indeed run a very successful affiliate program by outsourcing the pain points. Let someone else do all the administrative and support related work for you while you only monitor the sales and payment related stuff.
