I apologize if this is in the wrong section, but "Sales Persuasion" seems to be the best place to put this thread. The niche that I have found and want to be a part of has very few affiliate programs, but there are a lot of companies that do not currently offer affiliate marketing. I think it's crazy that they don't offer affiliate marketing programs. It basically guarantees successful advertising or they don't have to pay money. How do I convince a company that currently doesn't offer affiliate marketing to do affiliate marketing? I was thinking about just giving them the facts. 1. No risk - No money upfront. It doesn't cost them anything until referred sales are made. 2. They have the opportunity to gain new traffic and potential buyers to their site and catalog of products. 3. I would show them my site. Are there any recommendations or tips that you would suggest?
