This article is for individuals promoting a program that they
don't own personally.
What do you do when you receive that email informing you of a new
affiliate sign-up? Are you as excited as your new affiliate?
These are important questions and we'll put several others on the
table for you to think about.
When you receive an email informing you of a new affiliate do
1) disregard it all together/delete.
2) put it in a folder and forget about it.
3) contact them.
4) send them your auto reply message and be done with them
5) help them.
6) send them another offer for a different program.
If you picked 1,2,4,and 6 your doomed. Yes, I was just as guilty
as the next person when I first started out with affiliate
programs. Today I use method 3 and 5. Sending your new partner a
first contact email shows them you care about their success. This
first email to your new affiliate partner should be done within
the first week,if not sooner. You could send something like this;
I would like to welcome you as my new affiliate in the
( program name)affiliate program. What I have found that works
best when marketing this program is ( explain here). Please feel
free to email any questions you may have and good luck.
Copy and paste that example if you like or make your own.
This works to benifit you in two ways. The first is you show
them you care, the second is they can be accountable to someone
other than themselves. Consequently, if your new partner
doesn't receive this in their first week you could be hurting
your own income. Now there is a possibility that this new
affiliate doesn't need your help and that's a tough one to figure
out, but you should still send it anyway.
Not all affiliate programs will give you the mailing address of
your new affiliate but most do. Keep a separate folder for each
program that you promote. My best advice is that you keep in
touch with your new partner and mail them regularly just to let
them know your their if they need help.
