Affiliates allow you to earn overiding commission. That means you can get sales without worrying about traffic.
As a good vendor, you need to know how to 1st market and convert your own product.
By knowing how to market, you can test whether your product and sales copy converts.
More importantly, you don't need to rely on affiliate traffic. The less you rely on other sources of traffic, the better and more stable your business will be.
With that said, let s say you already have a good product, tested by your conversion tools.
You can start to leverage on affiliates from Clickbank.
Clickbank affiliates only want to promote products that convert. And rightfully so since they spend alot of time and money to push traffic to your site, so you better be sure your product converts.
From experience, once your product converts, its only a matter of time before affiliates will be drawn to your product.
Attracting new affiliates and retaining them means to keep pushing your product through your affiliates links and help them to make money.
Try to allow your affiliates to make at least $36 a sale. Anything, from my own experience working with other vendors, its very hard to make a profit, so try to allow your affiliates to make at least$36 to $55 a sale.
To Your Success!
