Right now my sales/marketing strategies is:
adwords - SHORT term - where i'm at right now
affilates: MID to LONG term - what im trying to build now to pay for...
seo - LONG term
My goal is to get more affiliates to promote my product so i can cut back on PPC, and start using the money to pay for SEO services...
I'm selling a 'digital service,' i'm currently using ejunkie, and i've set up an affiliate program where i pay out quite a decent amount.
Right now, after i deliver my service, i follow up with an email where i ask for referrals and offer to pay a commission, and i'll tell them about my affiliate program where they can earn easy cash.. is this a good idea?
I'm also currently setting up a 'become a partner' page on my website with info for becoming an affiliate, that should be up in a few days
My question is how do i get more people to become an affiliate and promote my product? I'm offering an awesome service, and i'm paying out a decent amount as well..
Any help and pointers would greatly be appreciated.. cheers
