    I do not understand this. Why aren't they, or is it they are not interested in your type of product.

    Try Share a sale.

      That's the strange thing, the institutional version is backed by consultants who work for multi-nationals and it's running in a fund, all very odd. It looks like if the publisher is not a household name they are not interested, it just doesn't work like that in the financial sector. It's a shame, they were offering 18% over 90days with $1,500-$2,000 per month per customer so it's high profile.

      Thanks for the other option, will try ShareASale but not sure if they will have the quality.

      Spoke to the customer, they spoke to ShareASale before and the network a few weeks back and they couldn't help as not a sector they deal with and the high value nature.

      Most of the affiliate forums are shut down, the large networks seem to want household names, the small networks are mass consumer market, does anyone actually do affiliate marketing these days? It looks like everyone wants to spend all their time making 2% instead of some time making 20%, looks like noone is geared up for the last one.

      Thanks for those, not entirely sure what planet Peerfly are on, and MaxBounty never responded. Have another program, $1,800 CPS for investment fund starting at $8k. So where exactly do you put these as the networks and the forums do not appear to want new programs in financial services.

      Thanks for that, actually already contacted them and they said they don't do B2B, when we pointed out it was B2C and B2B as seperate entities and were interested in B2C they didn't respond.

      Thanks for the idea, we saw post affiliate as they have a cloud version, however the problem is the affiliates. We tried AdWords campaigns, nothing, and the forums keep deleting the threads even though we put them in the correct area.

      In-house is probably the best option however it's not really our field, are there any agencies to go to who can manage it. The initial POC landing pages are running and the funds are already live, so it's just affiliates, otherwise we'll have to pass it to a media agency instead and take another path.

      Is that the real name of Rakuten?

      Btw they don't have just big clients, they are huge themselves, they own Linkshare as well.

      Thanks for that, received the following response.



      - The $2mil is not an issue but it's offline hence the online push
      - It does not need 8-12 hours per week, highly inefficient
      - Of course, who wouldn't have someone to do this

      So here's the problem, they want you to spend a lot of time when none is needed to justify the value you receive. Basically you have to jump through hoops to be worthy of their network, which leads to one thing.

      They believe they are more important than their customers, which appears to be the trend in all the networks, a lot of work for limited gain. So what happens if you have a product with a lot of gain and not so much work, apparently it's fake.

      Except that's how financial services work, and some of them even provide a balanced end result for the end customer so everyone wins.
