    You can go to JVzoo to find an affiliate to promote your product.

    Yeah, you mean you want to promote it free. It's difficult because there isn't anyone know about your program.

    No serious affiliate is going to join your single-site affiliate program.

    It's just not worth their time.

    Put your site/product on an existing affiliate network, like Clickbank, Share-a-Sale, etc.

    That's why OP said a small scale affiliate program, probably wants to test the water before launching larger scale or might just want to keep it small. I know site owners to run affiliate programs and do very well, it's not always about large networks

    Make sure your product and services are profitable for the third parties. Use specialized software and find good affiliates for this to work out. This kind of business is long term investment so have patience. :)

    Get your plugin and add to your website. You can also use WHMCS and get this done in no time

    After creating site related to your niche, go to some sites with an affiliate program or promote to gather affiliates then negotiate your offers.

    If you host your own, single-site affiliate program, you issue is then going to be finding affiliate advertisers to promote your products. If you're having any issues finding customers, you'll likely have even more issues finding affiliates wanting to work with you.

    I would suggest getting in contact with a reputable affiliate network such as cj.com, shareasale.com, clickbank.com, jvzoo, etc.. and start a conversation with them about becoming part of their network. You'll probably give up 2% to them (I'm making that number up) but your exposure to affiliates will but much higher. Ask them questions like, "what types of offers would attract affilites?" I'm sure they'll help and advice you on any steps you need to integrate their services.

    I think Clickbank will suit your requirement. It is one of the best affiliate programs. There you invent your product and your product affiliate link will be taken by the affiliate site owners to affiliate your product. Hope your product will be sold out as much as you give the good margin commission. I think this is what you want.

    Best of luck mate. :)

    2% yes you are making that number up, it's a lot more than that
