My company has delved into ShareASale and Pepperjam for several months, and ended with nothing but high fees and immense dissatisfaction.
Aside from the extortion and legality, the quality of publishers is just pitiable: it's full of dilapidated blog and niche sites and a bowl-full of coupon sites.
We are considering buying a software ourselves and managing it, obviating the other networks to take our commission.
(We are considering Tapfiliate right now because it's something like $69/mo and has some nice features and reviews.)
Regardless, how would we find serious affiliates: ones who aren't trying to sell each other on funnel courses and junk like on here, but people with experience who could work well with 6 month tracking cookies and stuff. We're the manufacture, and we can give great, solid commission for solid affiliates.
Thoughts? Thanks, y'all!
