    Where are the best places to advertise the affiliate opportunity for free?

    What's the best affiliate software that you recommend I use?

    I would say $8.50 would be fine.

    I'm pretty new to affiliates but I'm looking at one that says they pay the affiliate $3 more than the sales price of the product plus 10% of the product price... how is this possible?

    Start with 50% for increased sales. If you get more sales from the affiliates then increase your product price and reduce the commission to say 30% :)

    Yes, because the product (unless it's a digital product) is created completely for free right? Ever seen amazon giving 85% commission...? I swear 98% of the people on this forum have shit for brains..

    Answers are so far out of line, unless you're selling a digital product. I was looking at competing Ecommerce affiliate rates and commonly see between 8-20%

    I can do 50% but how is company A paying affiliates more than their sale price? Do they just hope to make more than 1 sale from the same customer?

    I'm also looking for a good affiliate manager who can get me 200 good affiliates quickly.

    Is 200 affiliates a good quick target?

    i would say whatever your profit margin is, give 20-30% -- maybe 50% if you want to get a lot of affiliates signing up with you. If it's a recurring payment, first months' revenue.

    Its not what your getting,

    How much does the product cost, Whats the sales page like
    whats the competition

    How high is the gravity.

    Amazon may only pay 8% , but the trust factor with amazon is worth an extra 20% at least.

    So nobody can advise you without knowing a lor more than your saying, In other words, the answers your receiving don't mean jackshxt

    1) They are getting more revenue per customer on the back end, which they are not sharing with the affiliate. e.g. upsells to other products, cross sells to products offered by related companies on an affiliate basis, rebilling monthly memberships etc.

    2) They are shaving a certain percentage of sales, so they are not paying the affiliate on every sale.

    If you are only making $10 profit per sale then you may have to raise your prices in order to get affiliates and be able to pay them a decent commission. It depends on the niche and product, but I certainly wouldn't promote anything where I was getting less than $10 per sale.

    1. If it's a digital download, 50% and if its kinda service where it needs manual work then 30% is good.

    2. Try blackhatworld.coxm/blackhat-seo/f15-affiliate-programs/ if your affiliate program is related to IM

    3. PAP(Post Affiliate Pro) or Wp affiliate platform if your site runs on wordpress

    Make it like 80%. It'll help you boost your business in long term. Affiliates are gonna work hard to promote your business in a way.

    I would say 70% and you get 30 ofcourse. this will be fair since well you dont have any rep and mostly people wouldnt take a chance for anything less. Get it going, pay people on time and then well lower it and increase only for the good aff.

    How much do you want to make? How hard would it be to sell your product? How is the competition in your niche? Ask your self these and you should be able to get an answer. Hope it helps
