How affiliate managers spend time and money on searching irrelevant affiliates

19 April, 2017

There are a few methods to find relevant affiliates for promoting your affiliate program. In this post, we will describe a few of them, some of these methods can be time killing tasks.

Advertising: affiliate managers invest high budget in ppc or different media sources to recruit affiliates.

Forum and social activities: affiliate managers join social networks/ forums/ group chats. In order to succeed in recruiting affiliates, you must be active; post your contents, comments to other profiles and make new connections, but keep in mind that social media marketing can waste much of your time. You must set your goals: how many posts, how many comments, how many invites for new connections you are aiming - and stay focused. Otherwise you will find your days ending with no promotion.

Affiliate conferences: although we are dealing with global web marketing there is no substitute to personal warm connection. There are famous affiliate conferences such as Affiliate Summit, London Affiliate Conference, etc. When you plan to attend a conference, make sure you have a full conference plan: who would you like to meet, set early appointments as many as you can and yes, you can't talk to everyone during the conference so stay focused on your goals.

Search engines: this is one of the famous recruiting effort made by affiliate managers. Using many keywords, searching page results and sorting all competitors that worked and thought same way like you did, pages without display ads and irrelevant website.

On an average, an affiliate manager will sort minimum 2000 websites in order to have 200 accurate and relevant results.

If you measure loading time, at 2-3 minutes' minimum analyzing each website (if you are fast and well experienced) you will spend an estimated 4000 minutes, that's 66 hours, for only 200 websites.
