I just started an effort to build an affiliate network to promote a new product that I'm marketing.
I'm wondering what the best practices are for providing affiliates with marketing support. On ClickBank we offer banner type ads / images (on ClickBank), a custom brand-able lead magnet, and that's about it.
I am considering creating an email or series of emails for affiliates to use, but I don't know if most profitable affiliates prefer to use their own copy...or would it improve my affiliate recruitment to write some email content for them? I really have no idea what most affiliates do in terms of building their own sales/marketing funnels, if most of them sell to their own lists, etc.
My impression is that only a small percentage of affiliates actually make most of the affiliate money, so ideally I'd like to hear from people that make at least a few hundred dollars a month by selling other people's products.
Appreciate any insight offered, thank you!
