High-ticket training programs will cost you thousands of dollars. The “Super Affiliate Network” is one of them. Learning how to build an online business and how to use affiliate marketing doesn’t have to be that expensive. Actually, it can be done with much less. SAN is a program i would never recommend to a beginner or to someone who failed at affiliate marketing before and is now looking for a new perspective. There are just too many upsells, and it gets really expensive.
Cost per mille requires only that the publisher make the advertising available on his or her website and display it to the page visitors in order to receive a commission. Pay per click requires one additional step in the conversion process to generate revenue for the publisher: A visitor must not only be made aware of the advertisement but must also click on the advertisement to visit the advertiser's website.
There are other alternatives to reducing the affiliate commission. It’s possible to shorten the cookie life, so that the only channel credited with the sale is the last click. The company could opt to only payout the last click, so that an affiliate cookie set prior to the last click receives no credit. A better solution may be to establish weighted payouts to reflect the proximity between the purchase and the affiliate click, but honestly I’m not entirely convinced any of these options is better than reducing the commission. How would you approach the challenges of balancing the marketing budget?
You have a range of options for hosting affiliate deals on your website. You might want to run these on the sidebar of your blog (like Heidi Cohen) or at the bottom of a piece of content (if you’re a mom blogger like 3 Boys and a Dog. If you’re running a B2B organization, you could have a portion of your site devoted to partner offers).Test different placements of your affiliate offers rather than confining them to one area of your website.

Once you join a network as a merchant, you will post your offer, and affiliates can begin requesting access to join your program. You can set your preferred settings so that you review all applications, or you can choose auto-accept. In the beginning phases of your affiliate marketing campaign, I recommend reviewing all applications so that you have more control over where your brand is being promoted. If you’ve posted your offer and have not found much success using the network’s existing membership base, this is where your expertise of your industry comes into play. Going back to the IT company example: Maybe they frequently work with restaurants in the area. They could let the restaurant know about this new opportunity, and the restaurant could join the affiliate network as an affiliate. Once joined, the restaurant could simply add a link on their website and they’d be off and running! As another idea, maybe that IT company buys all of their office furniture from a local furniture store. Chances are high that the local shop also has customers who would be in need of IT services, so why not ask that local furniture store if they’d be interested in exploring another revenue stream? As long as it makes sense for both parties, there’s a conversation worth having.
