I'd like to know some best-practice tips and advice from both program managers/publishers and affiliates. I'm confident that we could just go ahead and do this with the knowledge I've picked up so far, but I thought it might also be useful to others to see the answers (and I also want to minimise my own learning curve)
Here's a few questions that might start the ball rolling:
As a publisher, what do we need to do so people will want to become an affiliate? How do we set-up and organise the program? What software do you recommend? To what extent do you provide graphics, banners and e-mail copy for example? (e.g. Is RAP looking like THE product to have?)
As an affiliate, what do you want from a publisher? What do you expect as a minimum? When and how do you expect to get paid?
Any specific examples of best/worst-practice? (No bitching please, let's keep it civil, useful and avoid deletion!)
There are probably more fundamental questions that I should be asking - by all means, put me right!
P.S. I'm sure I saw numerous threads about this on the old forum and maybe there's been some on this new board too, but I can't find them. If someone has a link it would be appreciated.
