    Hiya,

    I am looking to gather affiliates and get them to sell my product, but firstly I need to know where I can find some quality affiliate management software (ideally a plug in for wp)

    Heres my idea:

    I have built www.evilcarrotstudios.co.uk

    I am offering a free 3 page website and domain name and 1 email address, with hosting on a dedicated server including cpanel access at £9.95 a month.

    I am looking to offer affiliates £5.00 per sale but I just need some software to keep track of the sales and track links etc.

    Anybody have any ideas?
    Cheers
    BHD

    You can start with clickbank or ejunkie.

    If you want xtras such as autoresponders program built in,
    I'd suggest the software below.
    There isn't much tutorials available on how to use their back office
    but as a non-techie, I found it quite easy to pick up and start using.
    The fees are reasonable too. Also, I was working with another similar more recognized
    program where you host the software yourself and the upgrades (due to bug-fixes) ate up
    so much of my time and became a major headache.

    I think amember pro does this. I am currently setting up my own affiliate program for a couple of my products. That is what I am going to use. I have used it before and it seems to do pretty well. It also integrates with wordpress.

    There is also a wordpress affiliate plugin, that I worked with a little bit, but I think you had to use the wordpress shopping cart also. Not a 100% on this one though.

    Hope that helps.

    If you want completely free there's a good aff module for zen cart. zen is very easy to manage (esp if you only have a few products) and that snap interface does a lot of the work for you. It's free too. I've never used it but the author is active in the forums and other users like it so I'd say it's an OK package.

    What do you guys think about the new kajabi? Seems like you can stop worrying about the technical details and get on making money...

    I really like the guys screen cast videos. It seems like a great software for the non-techie for landing/sales pages etc. I think they have a free trial going right now but don't know much about the recurring fees to for the program.

    Hey peeps,

    Thanks for the info above - I now have amember on my server!
    I am at the part where I need to create P3P files for my cookies, and so I can track and pay affiliates.

    I am confused to hell - anybody know of a good wizard type generator or anywhere I can get some info about ow to make and deploy these files?

    Cheers
