    I've been reading up on affiliate programs for a while but most of the literature is for people looking to sell the goods of others. I've got my own site that sells sub-$10 transactions mostly and I'm looking for a way to increase the amount of sales that I get.

    I've coded the website such that I can handle ad-hoc affiliates (like we just hash out an agreement on Skype and you get a code) and more robust networks like CJ. I'm entirely open to any ideas for getting traffic to the site :)

    Any suggestions on good networks to join that have affiliates who can sell my products? Ideally, I'm looking for a low cost / no setup fee.

    Thanks guys!

    CJ has a high start-up fee, it'll cost you around 6k to start.

    Share-a-Sale is $550 plus $100 pay-out deposit.

    ClickBank or JVZoo would be good options.

    As far as getting traffic to the site, that would partially depend on what your product is.

    I've looked at CJ, actually had a chat with their customer service. I think they're the gold standard that I frankly don't have the budget for right now.

    Share-a-sale is a sweet site that I actually integrated into my checkout process. However, they hide the cost in the sign up process pretty well. I'm not committing $650 to a venture outright right now, especially since I have no experience with affiliate marketing or this product yet. Just doesn't make business sense.

    ClickBank and JVZoo look promising. I'm in the middle of the JVZoo process. Apparently as a US citizen, I've got to file a W9 to even post a product. Frankly, that's the not the law in the US, so I'm discussing with them about circumventing this. I'm not a fan of giving out my EIN (yes, I use a corporate shield) unnecessarily.

    I'm looking into ClickBank more after I write this.

    Frankly, I've got the website set up to track an affiliate "code" via GET and Amazon Payment's IPN system. It's not fool proof, but it'll be better than nothing to start with for right now, just to see how sticky the product is.

    I'm hitting Craigslist to see what the reaction will be and doing some marketing myself for the product. If I get good results, I'll move up to more legit affiliate programs.

    I'll be posting more on my journey once I've got some results. But the project involves $2M in a year and LEGO bricks.

    I believe JvZoo requires PayPal, so that's no good.

    I use Clickbank, it's pretty good. However, the fees are high. 7.5% I believe.

    I've been eyeing PayDotCom.com for a while. I was recommended it from a friend. I'm going to try it soon.

    Hey rhyeal, I'm representing an Affiliate Network ADsmonster. We can set up a test campaign for you so that you could try out what we can do for you - if our traffic works out for your product - that is why we have a practice of setting-up test-campaigns. We've got no pre-payment or join fee - nothing of the kind. Our advertisers usually pay only for the number of conversions they get.

    Please, feel free to contact me with any questions.
