Hi Warriors.

I am Re structuring my affiliate management program on a couple of our sites and wanted your feedback. What is the most effective platform in your opinion value-Features-and Perception wise from Affiliates-Joint Ventures wise:

Here are my choices:

1) Post Affiliate Pro
2) iDevAffiliate
3) 1ShoppingCart.com
4) Infusionsoft
My Main Goal is pure Affiliate management-statistics- and Marketing Material Banners ect I already use Aweber so the CRM is not of an interest for me ...All your feedback PROS AND CONS is greatly appreciated.

Take care
Marc

    Hey Marc

    My vote would be Infusion Soft...especially from a tracking perspective.

    I do wish their affiliate resource are was a bit more intuitive but
    overall it's a stellar platform...

    Highest Regards,

    Hi Marc,

    We have used Infusion for about 2 years after leaving 1shoppingcart and found their affiliate program pretty good - it has improved since the early days of Infusion, as has most of their application.

    If you are looking to consolidate your ordering system, list/client management and affiliate management and you are not at all techy then Infusion soft is your answer. I love their tag system.

    If you want all that above and have a ton of sites and are not intimidated by a little tech work and have a need for upsells, OTO, downsells, etc (who doesn't need this) then I like using Delavo (Fantasos). It has the capability to look after JV projects as well as containing multiple affiliate programs.

    If you already process your orders through other mediums and are looking for pure affiliate management then IDevAffiliate is very good. I used it a long time ago and recently went back to it for a client, They've done a nice job with the updates.

    All systems have some type of limitations or drawbacks.
    You need to list out what functions are important to you and go from there.

    • I hear the most positive feedback about Post Affiliate Pro and iDevAffiliate. I have not heard that much about Infusionsoft until now. I should go check it out.

        we went with idev, but when considering them, it was either that or jrox, but we are very happy we went with idev, the support team rocks

        also, consider webmasterchecks.com for the affiliate payments side of it

    I am familiar with infusionsoft, fantas**, idevaffiliate, and have had some lesser experience with a few others.

    My favorite for clarity and support has been idev, and once I added an ipn redirection script, I have been able to integrate it with some really neat functions ... including automatic subscribe and unsubscribe to my autoresponse plus, something I never could get done with another more famous piece of ...

    Others may have their own opinions, but I am pretty excited about how the idev thing worked for my installation. And, for $19 a month, he trains my affiliates.

    Cheers

    I heard a lot of good comments on Infusion Soft and
    see it mentioned here a few times...

    That might be the way to go...at least initially....
