Dear BHW members, I am currently contemplating whether to launch an affiliate service for our product or not, and I would really appreciate any input you have in regards this topic. A bit of a backstory: Basically we are a small, but quite successful company working within the Trading/Financial sector. We had a SaaS model going on a couple of years ago with several hundred signups, but to be honest it was not the most user friendly web-based application ever. Regardless of this, many users were very satisfied with it. We have learned from this a lot and are now currently providing part of the web-based services for free, with several hundred users each day. Now we are thinking of expanding the service, including software that was previously unavailable to clients and also programming entirely new aspects, making everything way more user friendly, and tacking a subscription fee on top of it. New design as well. It sohuld be ready within a couple weeks. Since everything is web based I figured that it would be quite easy for experienced affiliate marketers to sell the subscriptions, especially since it is: 1. Recurring monthly 2. In a high-paying niche My question to any affiliate marketing pros out there would be the following: - What are you looking for when you decide to work with a service? - Is it still a viable route to take to increase awareness for a product and generate sales? I have some minor knowledge about clickbank, plimus etc. but to be honest we think that our services are a bit higher profile than to go with marketplaces like that. We would code our unique tracking links and all that jazz, but I would really appreciate if any of you could add their 2 cents on how to do it properly to be attractive to affiliate marketers. I know that the higher the payout % the more likely it is to attract you, but since it is monthly recurring there might be some wiggle room. Or how about a fixed earnings model that increases with each signup (like hostgator does foe example)? Would that work? Thank you very much in advance for your input!
