    I have been on here for a while trying to get some marketing Ideas for my business but after reading alot of post I have decided it would be better to find some who know what there doing then me trying to do it myself... SO I am looking for someone who is interested in make some extra cash. I see alot of affiliates pay out pennies on there commissions... well, for doing almost the exact same marketing for my company I will pay $10 per qualifying referral.

    What do you mean by that ? Someone should market your company or just be a referral of some affiliate product ?

    you really have to give out some more details - what does your company do?
    Are you selling some sort of package of services?
    Do you have a way to track incoming leads?
    $10 is great, but what % of the sale is that?
    hope to help...

    Sorry, kind of new at this so please ask questions. to answer the above questions I am a Dish Network (and soon to be Directtv) retailer. I have a website but I cant post the url. The leads will be tracked as a referral number that they will find in the advertisement and will be given to my sales reps by the customer... the reason the customer will give referral number to me is because it saves them $50. I am only looking for 1 or 2 people/companies for this job so there will be only 1 or 2 referral codes. The % of the sale depends on what they get Hd, number of tvs, programing package etc. Thats why i thought it would be easier just to flat rate it.

    What a total joke. Lousy commission rate and we don't even know what we are promoting.

    There are tens of thousands of better alternatives to this guy.

    OP, put yourself in our shoes and ask the question "what's in it for me?".

    So what are we going to do? I know what referrals meant but what do we refer to clients?

    $10 is quite low mate. You are asking to promote CPS(cost per sale) campaign which expects huge payouts.

    Sorry guys not trying to insult anyone... I am still new to the P.P.s. thing. How about If I were to come up to $40 per sale... would that be more appealing?

    How much does your products cost? You should check out your competitor's affiliate program and see the % they give to their affiliates so you can have an idea on how much you can offer your affiliates.

    Well satellite dish sales is a very competitive area.
    Here is an example of sales commission randomly picked from the first page of Google results:

    Maybe there is something different you could focus on to market your services - some value added proposition?

    How is your website ranking?
    Maybe you could focus on getting more organic local traffic?

    How could I do that on a pps basis? I checked out the affiliate program and there is no way I could afford to payout that much... It would cut to deep into my profit. I am a small retailer and honestly unless you are one of the top 2% of dish retailers or dish themselves I dont know how else it could be possible.

    It depends on what programing package... do the want HD... How may tvs they have but it would start at $250 and after you take out sales and installation it doesn't leave much.
