Affiliate marketing is awesome for generating a flood of leads or sales, but you need thousands of affiliates to create a significant impact in your marketing strategy.

Established affiliate networks have thousands of web site owners, email list owners and independent marketers ready to drive traffic to your campaign. Affiliate networks except CPS (Cost Per Sale), CPA (Cost Per Action), CPC (Cost Per Click) and other hybrid deals. Using the affiliate networks you could literally have your product displayed on millions of web sites with in a matter of days.
Affiliate management and recruiting is done for you by the big networks allowing you time to concentrate on running your business. Affiliate Networks approve affiliates web sites, manage the accounting, mail the checks and assist you with the development of very successful campaigns.
You pay the affiliate network based on the results of your campaign. With a pay for results campaign there is no guessing about your profit margin. Your advertising costs will be fixed.
Affiliate Networks will require a deposit for their services ranging from $25 to $10,000 depending on the size of the network. You can negotiate the price you pay per sale, per click or per lead. The affiliate networks keep 5% to 50% of the fee you pay per sale, lead or click and pay the remainder to the affiliates. Set your prices low enough to make a profit but high enough to allow for the network margin and to make your offer attractive to the affiliates.
Become friends with your account manager at the affiliate networks. The friendship you create with your account manager will give you nearly direct access to the affiliate. A close relationship with your account manager can give your campaign the extra push it needs to get on the top affiliate sites.
