    What are some of the best ways to recruit affiliates? What methods do you use? Does cold calling actually work? Do recruitment methods actually vary based on your niche? My service is in the niche of legal movie & tv shows streaming especially targeting users that use netflix / hulu or users that are into xbox/ps3/appletv video streaming etc ..

    Just trying to gauge what worked for you so i can hopefully follow the same path.

    Thanks for your help!

    When looking for affiliates, I target affiliates. It is a much easier sell than trying to "sell the dream" to a novice.

    This is what I would do. You need to target affiliates rather than buyers. Just post in the affiliate forums and you will get some decent affiliates.

    Go to Facebook and look for affiliate groups/networks, cpa groups/networks (still on FB) that have many followers and join them. After making yourself known, start contributing with useful stuff and regularly.....and after some time you can now post your request...but DON'T SPAM because you will regret it.

    Make sure that your own order and shopping cart system is SEO-friendly with relevant descriptions, titles, and headers. Check that it can provide a number of URLs for one apparel product page and that it won't crash when the traffic to your site raises. You will definitely be saving cash if you do this

    Facebook is a great place to start looking, tons of groups there.

    Post in affiliate forums, explain your affiliate program and its benefits. If the program interests people you will get signups.

    Hi,

    I've provided affiliation for 2 years now and still running but, do you guys know someone or a company or agency for a very good in house affiliate campaign? I don't necessarily need to market anymore, i'm good with few loyal affiliates. It's just that I want the process to be smooth to all customers, processors, affiliates, suppliers, agents and logistics..
    Any idea?

    Thanks
