Is my business suitable for affiliate marketing?

Hello all,

My business, ( is advertising "local" brick and mortar businesses in the U.S. on my website. These are typically small, individually owned (mom and pop) types of businesses that can offer coupons for their products or services. I am interested in setting up an affiliate network or joining an existing one as a merchant.
Is my product suitable for this? I would offer a commission for each subscription and residuals for those businesses who continue to renew their subscriptions.

Thank you,

Hi Howard and Welcome :D

Yes, your 'product' (advertising) could easily be sold by affiliates who earn a percentage of the profits. This is a great idea, actually.

Off topic, on the left side of the main page at the link above there is a subscription form. It simply says "Sign Up Now!". Sign up for what, if I may ask? You might want to include some descriptive text there ;)

Thanks for the feedback Lynn!

I have made some changes based on your observations. Sometimes we get so used to what we have that we miss some obvious little problems.

I can relate to that :!:

Sometimes it helps to go back through our sites and try to "be like a visitor" and imagine how they might perceive it.

I love the changes you made to the form, and the info page - very nice ;)
