    First. Yes. You can.

    Second. You can search affiliate WP plugins on Google. There are plenty like DAP, affiliatewp, etc.

    But, third... I don't understand as you said you're an affiliate marketer and want more sales by creating affiliate program on your site? Do you have your own product you need affiliates for? Or do you need a plugin to create a website to flood with all affiliate programs you go for?

        Affiliate program for what? You said you do not have your own product.

        A bar of iron cost $5. Made into horseshoes, it's worth $12. Made into needles, it's worth $3500. Made into balance springs for watches, it's worth $300,000. Your value is determined by what you are able to make of yourself

          it means "Affiliate of affiliate". I promote a product on my site and i want my customers or visitors to be my affiliates and they can help me sell it. Do you understand?

            Yes, I've understood from the beginning.

            The question is still, why would affiliates choose to promote your site other than the product creators site? They will make less money promoting your site than than they would the product creators as there are fewer hands that need fed.

            I strongly believe in turning happy customers into affiliates. But, I'm a product creator and it's easier to do when you own the product.

            Depending on your niche, you can, and should ask your customers to promote for you. If you're outside of the MMO niche, most people probably won't know much about affiliate marketing.

            Some merchants or affiliate networks provide affiliates with a unique sub-affiliate signup URL ...

            Anyone who signs up using your URL becomes your sub-affiliates; and
            You earn commissions from all sales generated by all your sub-affiliates ...

            So, the best thing for you to do is to ask your merchants or affiliate networks regarding this; and

            Many merchants and affiliate networks would be happy to do this for you even if they aren't currently offering this ...

    If I'm understanding correctly, you essentially want to be an affiliate with your own affiliates. So, you want to promote affiliate products, and have affiliates promoting your site.

    There are a couple ways I can think of that you could try.

    First, pay per lead. But, you'd have to know your numbers very well and monitor them. If you have a funnel that converts email optins, for example. Let's say, your email follow up converts at 5% with and your average sale generates you $30 in profit including everything (upsells, downsells, etc.)

    That means for every person who joins your mailing list, you're making $1.5 on average. So, you could pay per lead anything under $1.5 and turn a profit. But as I said, you'd have to know your numbers very well and continuously keep an eye on them.

    The second option is a bit more complex. You could get your own affiliates to promote your site and pay them for sales they generate. However, why would they join your affiliate program rather than the company you affiliate for? They would obviously get less profit promoting for you than the product owner since you'd take a cut.

    So, how can you provide value to make it worth their while? Free training? Free material? Additionally, I'm not sure how you'd can set up tracking for this but if there's a will there's a way.

    Third, you could join an affiliate program with tiered affiliate payments. Some of these programs will pay you 5-10% or the commissions that affiliates you refer make.

    Maybe there is one way you can do it. By joining an affiliate program that let you earn affiliate commission every month for life. After signed up, you can put their affiliate store into your website. Save time for creating a product if you do not have one.

    While the question doesn't make much business sense for the would-be affiliate of an affiliate, here are a couple of ways to go about it.

    First, you could confine yourself to two-tier programs. Your "affiliates" sign up under you, and you collect the overrides in addition to your own earned commissions.

    The other way to do it would be to pay for subscribers (if you used email marketing in some capacity). You would have to know your revenue per subscriber.

    There's a site out there called BuckBooks, promoting (you guessed it) ebooks selling for under a dollar. The site owner makes most of his revenue from Amazon, Audible and other affiliate programs. In one of his books, he said his average subscriber value was just north of $4,00 (too lazy to go look up the number). He pays his affiliates $1.00 per subscriber.

    This is much simpler than trying to track affiliate sales all the way from your affiliates, through you, and on to the actual vendor. If you have several different vendors, that could become a major PITA very quickly. Paying per subscriber is much cleaner and simpler.

    Honestly, I think some Googling on this subject could take you a lot further, imo.

    Yeah the WF has some great master affiliate marketers but you want to look in other spots of people who do, and have done this.

    Are you selling MLM (Multi Level Marketing) products? It seems you want to get downline than "affiliate of affiliate"... If it is. Then you must be looking for MLM or matrix software. Just google it.

    Thank all for help. I think that I can not find any software which helps track and manage my affiliates because I do not have my own product, I am an Affiliate.
    Who can answer me this question? I want to create an affiliate program with Cost Per Cost or Cost per Lead? and is there any plugin can help me do this?
    Thanks
