When working with an Affiliate manager in an affiliate system it’s very important that there’s a relationship of trust between one another customer or affiliate and their affiliate manager. I have been as 2004 in the affiliate marketing arena and I would love to share some suggestions on an affiliate could gain your affiliate managers hope.
If your account is approved, I would suggest requesting your affiliate manager what’s currently converting, what’s a network exclusive and receive conversion metrics or the data. When you are ready to ‘turn’ your visitors, start slow. As you have to establish a connection with your affiliate manager and the community. You don’t need to go and create 1000 debt leads per day which pays $25.00 and not get paid for it. This will raise a flag and will be a problem if the prospects return as invalid or quality leads that didn’t convert in the Advertiser. It is advisable to talk to your affiliate manager daily via phone, IM or email in the beginning the quality is ok in the Advertiser.
Be sure your account to manage your affiliates is real and upgraded. After the affiliate manager requires you to confirm you account, so as to get approved and get paid, is certain you provide your name, address etc. I cannot tell you how often I know of affiliates. You won’t be paid that you generate and will get caught. As well they affiliate programs are smart. They have procedures in place to be certain that you are real. Consider the affiliate system as partner. Much like a bank your success is their success. Always be certain that you are competitive with payouts. Although, you will need to build rapport over time with your affiliate manager acquire the payouts do your homework and study. There are numerous areas where you can research or find out what the going rate is on any offer.
When you have been Working together for have built trust, and long enough with your affiliate manger, you can begin to ask for payouts. In case you have got a fantastic affiliate manager, he/she should pass these top payouts to you. Another trick is to combine as notworks and get on their mailing lists for newsletters. Keep yourself updated with the offers that are being marketed on networks. This may be used as leverage when negotiating.
I can’t stress how important this can be to everyone. Having seen both sides of this business beginning and working at several affiliate networks, Affiliate Management and Business Development, affiliates creating inferior quality is a massive mess. Problems are caused by it internally. The Advertiser gets angry, the affiliate manager becomes angry, the business development manager becomes upset and accounting becomes upset. Besides, you could be kicked off the network and have all your funds that is owed to you frozen.
