    If this is the wrong forum for this please let me know and I will post it elsewhere. Thanks

    I?m looking for an Affiliate Manager?

    ?who will promote and sell my affiliate program; support my affiliates by distributing content and providing training; place our links and content on other peoples? websites, products, autoresponders, shopping carts, etc.

    My affiliate program, in all honesty, has never been given the attention it deserves. Aside from a few super-affiliates whom I?ve personally supported, what we have today is the result of what has happened naturally, by peoples? own initiative and ambition. I?ve focused all most all of my attention on other areas.

    Now it?s time for someone who knows what they?re doing to completely build this thing out. Because? there?s a lot of money still sitting on the table. I?m seeking someone who can finally do this thing justice.

    As my Affiliate Manager, you have access to everything. My staff and I work with you to build our online presence to what it should be. Because our products and sales funnels convert well, because we already have successful affiliates, and because of our good reputation online and offline, you have the proof you need go recruit more affiliates and JV partners.

    Skills:

    • Must be absolutely trustworthy with our customer and business data
    • Respects confidentiality of individual affiliates and their strategies; does not unfairly pit affiliates against each other
    • Able to pick up the phone and be in contact with your affiliates
    • Able to make persuasive connections with people via email
    • Has been a successful affiliate themselves, or else been an affiliate manager, had their own affiliates and succeeded through them
    • We consider experience with offline versions of ?affiliates? (distributors, reps, sales channels) to be valuable
    • Able to support various KINDS of affiliates: GoogleCashers, arbitragers, SEO people, owners of email lists, Web 2.0 / social media people, bloggers, publicists, banner ad people, guys who make YouTube videos etc., people who place ads in ezines; even those who place inserts, flyers, print ads & direct mail
    • Big plus would be: Able to do teleseminars and write emails that educate affiliates about executing the above strategies
    • Reasonable technical skills: Understands links, redirects, HTML; able to build web pages with forms; able to work with spreadsheets and affiliate reports; able to work with us to build custom landing pages for highly productive affiliates as necessary

    Responsibilities:

    • Contacts existing affiliates to find out what they need and how we can support them better
    • Works with our Content Czar who helps recycle / re-purpose content and articles and gives them to affiliates for distribution
    • Takes copy, content and concepts from our own testing, ads and experiments and distributes it to affiliates
    • Gets our links and content embedded in other peoples? websites, shopping cart upsells, autoresponder sequences, ebooks and products
    • Finds high profile people outside of the familiar, who are good candidates for JV?s
    • Identifies niche industries outside of the familiar Internet Marketing space who are good candidates for JV?s
    • Organizes promotions for one-time events, product launches and specials
    • Prioritizes activities according to productivity and potential productivity of affiliates
    • Able to write decent sales copy

    Compensation:

    • Performance based
    • To be determined based on mutual agreement and requirements
    • The income potential is substantial
    • You will be an independent contractor, not an employee (i.e. this is not a ?job? and it?s not for someone with an employee mentality, it?s a position for an entrepreneur)

    Advantages:

    Makes you an instant insider in the online marketing community
    You?re welcome to use this education and experience to enhance your own business-building knowledge, as long as there is no double-dipping or conflicts of interest

    Selection Process: What To Do Next

    Convince us that you?re the person for this adventure, starting by writing us a letter and telling us what you?ve done and what you can do. You are welcome to use whatever additional tools or mechanisms you feel would get the point across. Please don?t be obnoxious.

    We will require multiple solid references, candidate must pass pre-hiring tests. You can expect us to run you through a maze and it?s going to take a few days. Everyone who applies will receive useful feedback about their application as well. No ?rejection form letters.?

    You may say: ?It?s possible that I could be a desirable, highly qualified candidate and still not be selected, right??

    Of course. But that?s OK? because we will also share our findings about the top contenders with our other customers and online marketers. Thus if you?ve got the ?stuff? for a task like this, don?t hesitate to put the information together. It?s good use of your time. If you?re good, the very least you?ll get from this exercise is some excellent publicity. In any case, please do NOT apply unless you are completely serious about this position.


    Frequently Asked Questions:

    Q: What?s the deadline on this?

    A: I plan on bringing three affiliate managers on board as soon as possible. Before that we?ve got to run candidates through their paces. So you don?t want to delay if you?re interested. I strongly suggest having your application in as soon as possible.

    Q: Will there be rules in the employment agreement which include payment for long term results ? perhaps even after the position has been terminated?

    A: I am open to that possibility, though this is not ?employment? ? we are soliciting independent contractors to provide a service. Part of what we will need to determine is short term vs. long term goals both in terms of projects and compensation. The more risk the contractor is willing to incur up front, the more we?re willing to consider payment for long term results.

    Q: Performance based pay is very good IF you have full control (such as whom to work with); hourly rate is best when you don?t have full control of the work situation, i.e, hourly consulting fees are good b/c you don?t have control what the customer will do. So how much control will I have?

    A: My management style is: considerable freedom within certain established guidelines. I am not even capable of micro-managing someone and in fact the easiest way to disqualify yourself for this is to be someone who is high maintenance or needs constant hand-holding. We plan on launching some amazing new programs right after the first november so the opportunity to get immediate results is very real.

    Q: Is working online from outside the country possible?

    A: Yes, that is fine. This is a work from home, highly flexible hours situation. There is not likely to be more than a handful of mandatory phone calls or conference calls per month, the rest is entirely up to you. It would be a significant benefit to live in Los Angeles so we could meet face to face; but if you?re not from here, then anywhere in the world is OK.

    Q: How many people work there now?

    A: We have six employees plus quite a number of other firms / independent contractors who do different tasks, from SEO work, to accounting, payroll and software programming.

    Q: At the end of the day, what is it that you want from all of this?

    A: I want to be paying commission checks to twice as many affiliates; I want our best affiliates to be making even more money; I want more super affiliates; I want more promotions for our products built into other marketers? sales funnels ? not just links on web sites.

    Q: If I was a fly on the wall in your office on the day the stuff from the above question showed up for you, how would I know that ?it? had arrived safe and sound in your life?

    A: Right now a third of our business comes from affiliates. I think a competent affiliate manager should be able to double that number, because the level of support we?ve given to those affiliates has been merely adequate. And a person who can increase our total business by 30% will certainly be entitled to earn a significant income for their efforts.

    If you have read this whole post then you should understand exactly what I am looking for out of my next affiliate manager. I am looking for serious people that are looking for a full time job with huge returns for their effort. Please email me at h82b2nd23@yahoo.com my name is David. In the email please send me the following:

    Contact information: Name, Phone Number (Along with the best time to contact you) If you have any other way to contact you skype,aol,messenger,msn, etc...
    Resume (if you have one)
    Why I should contact you back about this position. (Just a summary)

    I will respond back to you with-in 24 hours no matter what my decision is about setting up an interview.

    All PM's responded too. Also this is not a network this is for one website which I run though a full tracking affiliate software. I currently have over 1200 affiliates. You will have access to everything and everything I can provide to help make you successful.

    Please read this is a performance based position that will require a lot of time. After 60 days based on your performance I will entertain a base salary.

    Once I have the Affiliate Manager in place and I am comfortable with their performance. I will be joining 2 of the largest affiliate networks on the web. I have been holding off until I found the right person to be able to handle this type of commitment. If this goes as planned more Affiliate Manager positions will open up.

    Please contact me if you have any other questions.

    Thanks

    PM Sent. Also, I understand that this post is rather long. I did this so I wouldn't be asked some of the basic questions. Please read the full post if you are interested. I believe I have answered most of the questions that would be very basic. I will be on all day so if you are interested please let me know.

    Thanks

    So instead of going to some place like monster.com you come to a black hat forum and post your job thread?

    Sounds really professional...

    It is posted in 13 different forums. This is a forum of people that know how to internet market and have a lot of experience in promoting products. I spend a decent amount of time in this forum so I thought I would post it in here. This is a very good job with great potential. I currently have 1200 affiliates and I am looking for someone that could give the affiliate program the attention it deserves.

    If I cant find what I am looking for through out the internet forums I will then look to the outside recruiting. Monster, Careerbuilder, etc...

    Thanks

    Home Page:

    I feel the OP wants to hire someone with real experience in IM. Places like BHW are any day better bet to find these recruits than generic job sites such as monster. Atleast, the OP will know the real experience, reviews & background of the recruit to some level...

    @OP - I guess being a newbie and looking to hire here raises the eyebrows. Please do share your company info so we know its credible.
