Default How To Get The Word Out

I was wondering if anyone had any ideas how to get the word out about new affiliate programs? I just started one for my site and now I need some affiliates.

You can submit your affiliate program to affiliate sites such as AffiliateRanker.com

There are several things you can do:

PRWeb press release, spend at the $250 level and you can get up to 3 anchor text links back to your program (a link per 100 words).

Affiliate Directory listings, over 80 available.

Posting on affiliate forums to create buzz, 10 available, follow the rules.

Submit to social networking sites, get a list at http: //ekstreme.com/ socializer/

Most important is to evangelize your program and make it so affiliates can find it. Don't SPAM and make sure you are competitive, have good conversion and a reason why an affiliate wants to promote (USP).

Default Use your own website

I would recommend a small link at the bottom of your website. affiliatethen when someone that has interest they can go check out your affiliate program for more details. Just a little promoting on your own website.

Make sure you have resources in place for your new affiliates.

Use the press.

Get offline with this stuff and nail a group of people who won't see it coming. Not only will you get mad new biz from this, but you'll also get people who want to promote your service.

I'm not talking about one of those idiot SPAM press things everyone blasts through PRWeb and stuff, those are semi cool, but way over done.

Start here:
#1: call your local newspapers, ask for the biz editor. Hit them with something interesting like how you're going to be teaching high school students to develop websites for free in an online seminar and you'd like them to do a story on it.

#2: hit them with a press release talking about this.

#3: Follow up. (this is almost more important than the first phone call!)

#4: Lather, rinse repeat.

This works for TV/Radio/Paper and online.

However, as you're not selling anything... you're giving quality, people will open up and be more attracted to your business.

End results?

#1: more money
#2: people will want to promote you

Hope that helps!
