    I am running a web design and development company and I am would like to start an affiliate program for it. I can either run something in-house, but that may be very slow to start or go with a network. If I were to go with a network, I would want something small and inexpensive.. free even.


    Either way I need to get the word out to potential affiliates. What is the best way to go about this?

    This is short, because I am not sure where to get started. Hopefully I can get some help and have some more questions. Oh and I tried adwords and it's to expensive for me at this point.

    If you are that new to it that you can't affoard a program I'd forget affiliates (don't forget you still have to "recruit" affiliate). My advice:

    1. Search for the "free website" method thread and consider it
    2. Read the offline marketing forum, get out there and sell websites to local businesses.

    I have read that actually. I think everyone has at some point.
    I have actually put together my own flavor of that method and it is what I am looking to promote.
    I have the ability to track affiliate sales. I am at the "recruiting" stage. Where would I find affiliates?

    What makes you different to every other affiliate program out there?

    Webmaster forums, affiliate forums, contact web hosts etc

    P.S. I believe the best affiliates are satisfied customers.
