I just finished my simple 5 step affiliate program promotion written in php. The key is people should easily promote your product and services in minutes and see how it works almost instantly.
I am thinking of writing this little program into a customizable system so you can do exactly what I am doing, but with your own products, banners, ClickBank payment links, headers, footers, etc, etc.
The easiest way to explain how it works is if you actually test how it works at 2ip - Affiliates & Partners
If you go through the simple steps, you will see how people can easily and immediately promote your product/services to their friends, using the Tell A Friend tools you see there.
Your affiliates will be able to give THEIR OWN "offer page" to their friends through whatever contacts they already have (IM, Address Books, Contacts on MySpace, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc, etc)
When their friends clicks on the affiliate URL, they will automatically hit the hoplink of your affiliate and landed on your main offfer page.
What if your affiliate has at least 50 "real friends" on which they can immediately promote too?
I think it's a pretty good idea huh? If you like it and would love to implement exactly what I did, please post your vote on this thread.
Oh, and if you think it's worth to sell, how much would you be willing to pay for it?
