Gaining top affiliates into your sales force is key to exploding your online profits to levels never reached before. However, to attract these top affiliates to your affiliate program, you need to promise them specific benefits that they will receive upon joining your affiliate program and promoting your product offers.
Most top affiliates are not going to be impressed enough to promote your product offer if you offer a high percentage commission or have an impressive conversion ratio. It’s going to take a combination of valuable benefits in order for them to join your affiliate sales force.
Other benefits besides high commission rates and high conversion ratios top affiliate would be interested in include the following:
- Getting a higher commission rate than most affiliates – the top affiliate is established in the industry and will expect to be treated as such in return for using his/her extensive knowledge and contacts to promote your product offer. Otherwise, the top affiliate will look elsewhere and consider other proposals.
- Getting exclusive bonuses, such as Private Label Rights or access to an exclusive membership site or forum that you will have others pay for. By offering exclusive products or membership sites, you’ll be more likely to draw interest from the top affiliate in your affiliate marketing proposal.
- Making that top affiliate an exclusive joint venture partner in an upcoming marketing promotion that will enable him/her to make sizable profits fairly easily (just by promoting your product to their lists without any extra advertising).
- Giving that top affiliate top-notch tools, marketing promotions, and easy contact access to help make it easier for them to promote your product offers.
These are just some ideas to consider in order to gain top affiliates in your affiliate sales force.
