    I started a small web design business recently, creating simple sites for $60-70. I set up an affiliate platform on my site and am trying my best to make it look as appealing as possible to those who promote aff. links.. So far I have:

    - Paypal based
    - No SS number
    - No minimum payout
    - $20 per sale

    Much ado, nobody seems to be interested in participating when I promoted the program on other forums. Can anybody tell me what other things I could do to make this more appealing for others to join? Also, if there is something I am doing wrong I would love to hear any criticisms.

    Make a compelling affiliate resource page that includes some list of keywords their searches and competitive analysis. If they see potential in your product then surely you can convince them to be your affiliate. You can also add ready-made articles and e-mails to assist them at optimum. PLUS include a FREE Making Money that convinces an affiliate to promote your product to earn a lot of money. The report must be help to even newbies.

    Successfully recruiting affiliates is one of the most difficult tasks to do. Many try and 99% fail. You can't just stick a product out there and expect affiliates to come running. There is simply too much competition.

    Have you considered working with a CPA company? A lot of times they will let you do a prepay and then you would have access to their network of affiliates without having to recruit them yourself. Many times a CPA company will help you with good landing pages and creatives for free as well. Sometimes it makes more sense to outsource, and I think this might be one of those times for your business.
