    I'm planning on setting up an affiliate program in the new year in the self-help niche.

    In order to recruit affiliates, i was thinking of giving them for free:

    1. A full IM graphics package (like the ones you see for sale on WF)
    2. Maybe free reports in different topics such as IM, losing weight, etc etc
    which they could use not only to promote my product but also any other products they may be an affiliate for. I'd obviously be giving them the basics too like an email sequence and pre-written reviews.

    What else like the 2 ideas above would make you want to be my affiliate? What would make you jump up and down and want to be my affiliate even if you don't already have a website in the self-help niche?

    A support network? Maybe something like a discussion group for your affiliates to discuss money making methods with you? With something like a weekly meeting?

    Dunno, just sprang to mind... :D

    Thanks. I'm going to set up a page/section on the website for affiliates to join. So maybe put a forum on it so that affiliates could post answers and questions etc?

    I'm planning on investing a few grand in this so anything you can think of that would make you want to join - throw it out there. Thanks.

    I was talking more along the lines of a discussion group. Maybe a Skype group or something like that?

    Touche!

    I know, but I don't like the idea of being tied down to having to sit with a bunch of noobs every tuesday night and explain to them the difference between a website and a blog. Those people are unlikely to make any significant sales for me.
    I don't mind investing $1000 or whatever into creating something which i can then give away for free. At least this is more sustainable then teaching noobs. PS if you're a noob - don't take offence - i'm a noob myself :eek:

    If your product sells everyone will be your affiliate, so make sure you build great sales page.

    Well DAWW :rolleyes: Isn't that why we're all here - to make money. Don't think anyone on here does scrapbox blasts, SEO, write content etc for the pure enjoyment of it :confused:

    Support! 1-to-1 support!

    If you are looking for newbies then its easy - you can give them ready to use template with step by step guide on how to build a website. At the end you will end up with 100s affiliates targeting similar keywords with similar websites. I doubt this is what you are looking for.

    Is you are looking for a few super affiliates, then all you need to give them are high payout and good product to promote.
