How do you get affiliates to promote your product launch?

16 replies
Hi fellow warriors,

I have a product that I will launch in the near future. How do product vendors usually get affiliates to promote their product launch? Is there any special forum or advertising platform specifically for product launch?

Thanks

    Yes its certainly possible for a newbie to get affiliates. You have to understand what they are looking for.

    They want 1) a high-quality product they feel good about recommending to their list (remember they have an ongoing relationship with these people.) 2) a professional looking sales page that looks like it will convert. 3) A good payout, probably 100% on the front-end, and some percentage of the back-end.

    If you offer those things, you dramatically increase your chances of getting affiliates to pay attention.

    Giving 100% comissions will ensure you build a list of buyers (best kind of list ever) This way even if you don't make any money on your launch you still can make money promoting other products to you new high targeted buyers list.

    Now if you don't want to give away all the commissions and depending on the price tag you can offer no less than 60% commissions.

    As for giving away review copies of your product, yes you can do it, it's good to establish relationships with other marketers who will gladly promote everything you publish. And will be a good source of reliable products for you to promote.

    If you don't want to give away your entire product. Make sure to make a good mini report explaining exactly what your product is about.

    So this way at the end of the launch you will acquire two great assets: a buyer's list and a network of relationships.

    Give them 100% commission. This will attract many affiliates.
    Another way is to contact affiliates who have big lists.
    As long as you have good product and they get high commission,
    most of them will say yes to promote your offer.

    I'm going to share a nice useful tricky approach with you and all other warrior members here.

    As you can see here and many other places there are landing pages that send a free gift when you submit your email address on those pages. Of course you know about the aim of landing page owner. S/He wants to know your email address to send some promotional emails in future. Usually you'll receive emails related to the free gift. For example if you opted-in for a free wordpress security tips, then the landing page owner sends some offers about wordpress security plugin.
    HERE IS THE TRICK: Register your email address on landing pages that have products similar to your product. You'll receive emails similar to your product in few days. Now, it's time to reply these emails and tell the affiliate marketer about your product.

    For example you reply to these messages something like this:
    Hi [IMer Name];
    Thank you for useful pdf about wordpress security tips. I've launched a new product about wp security few days ago. I appreciate you if have a look at my product and tellm e your opinion about it. Also we have affiliate program too. If you find it useful, you can start promoting it. I wait for your feedback.
    Best regards

    Sorry for my bad English writing skills though.

      If you want a lot of affiliates, most of whom will do nothing for you, offer really high commission percentages.

      If you want really effective affiliates, the kind that make you money and build your list, follow the advice to do in-house launches to gather real numbers. Then, when you approach affiliates, tell them what you got for EPC (earnings per click). If you can generate $1 or more for every click sent to your offer, on average, you will attract a lot of attention.

      Be prepared to share the traffic methods that gave you those clicks so the pro affiliates can judge how their own methods are likely to work.

  • Thank you all for the answers. You have given me new insights. I am planning to give 50% commission since it's a software product. Similar products in the market have similar commission and mid-range price tag. Would you suggest to advertise the launch on Facebook?

      I am considering that too. But how do I get contact with good affiliate manager that want to promote my products? If I put an ads on WF wanted section, I don't think big affiliate managers hang out on that forum. Any tips?

    You must know your numbers very well, if you do and if you can prove to them that it'd be worth for them, they will do the promotion..
