Lynn....PayDotCom Question

I came across an article Lynn wrote about PayDotCom while learning about affliate programs online and have a question...

I suppose my biggest concern about choosing an affiliate program is the ability to attract good affiliates. If I sign up for a smaller affiliate network like PayDotCom how do I go about recruiting my own affiliates if I'm not getting the exposre I'm looking for?

For example, If I were to contact a company and tell them about my affiliate program, how do I sign them up if I recruited them on my own? Does PayDotCom provide me with the affiliate links that I can then use to recruit affiliates?

Sorry the the 20 questions! I'm just learning about Affiliate programs.

Thanks in advance! :D

Well I'm thinking of going into clickbank soon. There are several websites that make it easy for affiliates to spot good clickbank products and affiliates are always on the look out for something new to sell.

That's why I'd go for clickbank - they are the major network for info products.

Paydotcom - well my experience as a customer has been negative. So much so that I will not buy products on the network.

Ugh!

And if you do not have an info product the major network is commission junction so from my point of view paydotcom is not an option.

Ever!

:-)

All The Best

I'm not that familiar with Pay Dot Com so hopefully more members will chime in.

Clickbank seems to be the most popular these days, of course that doesn't make it the best choice. I'm not that fond of PayDotCom either.

I used e-Junkie for awhile and it wasn't awful. However, I had a few problems as a seller on there. Their system frustrated me a bit.

Hi KB,

PayDotCom never did gain much traction in the marketplace. I should probably go back and update that article as it was written several years ago. Merchants and affiliates just weren't that happy with it (like Alex, and even myself).

If you have an info product, ClickBank is probably the best place for affiliates to just find you. That said, you're going to have to promote your affiliate program to really recruit some good affiliates. This means getting out there and seeing who is already in front of your market, and giving them a review copy and an invitation to join your program.
