How to Recruit and Manage Affiliates in Affiliate Marketing
If you are an experienced marketer looking for an opportunity to grow your affiliate marketing business, you could consider setting up your own affiliate programs and let other people work for you and provide you a regular online income. Well what does it take to do this and will you make money out of it?
You have to know you can never automate the process entirely. When your affiliates signed up on your programs, it is in your interest to operate a legitimate network and audit it regularly to ensure that you don’t get into any trouble with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). Keep in compliance of whatever guidelines you need to follow from the FTC including any required disclosures bloggers have to declare when you put a product for sale on your affiliate program. You are also made responsible for the actions of your affiliates.
Review all your affiliates regularly to ensure that how they are promoting your products and services is acceptable to you and that it is legal. You have to understand that once you open up your affiliate program to the online world, besides good webmasters joining your programs, you too will find spammers or fraudsters knocking on your door too.
Here are some tips to help you screen your true affiliates:
1. all affiliates should have an active website or blog
2. your affiliate site content should be relevant to your products and services
3. ensure that your affiliates do not misuse any content and they know what content they can freely use from your website.
