About affiliate programs?

Postby Sonya » Sat, 03 Sep 2005 9:48 pm

I have heard about the two-tier programs in [color=black]affiliate programs[/url]but don’t you think it is just a form of multi-level marketing. There indeed are many similarities. However, in my experience the level of hype and nuisance involved is often far greater in multi-level marketing. Also remember that the multi level programs are often referred to a program which require many referrals, and it's ridiculous to suggest that a two-tier program has "many" levels.

Affiliate programs are a good way of selling. Amazon.com is a big one - you get a cut for introducing someone to buy a particular book etc. THere is a misconceptoin about helping a company to sell. Sales is the lifeblood of a company - so a lot of companies are happy to reward people who bring in sales

I succeeded in bringing in sales for a manufacturer on a freelance 3% commission, in two years I had set up 11 distributors selling only on ebay, one should make sure you have the contract in order. I never deal with a sale, and only work 5 hrs a month, been doing it 5 years now. If you time out and think of the best way to make easy money, that is to let others do all the work.

You need to consentrate on preparation, a strategy that can increase your sales. Why bother with affiliates, Go straight to the producer manufacturer and say look here, I will build a global sales network if you pay me commission and go for it.
