Most Used Affiliate Program by Pros

9 replies
Hello everyone,

I'm shopping around for affiliate programs for my newest software product.

What do you think would be the best option so that top players decide to promote my product? (assuming of course that my product is so good that anyone would like to promote it) Shareasale? 1shoppingcart? cj?

Jvzoo and clickbank would not be suitable for my product.

I just want to make it easy for affiliates to join.

Thanks

    You may consider Avangate - which I know is one of the biggest software marketplaces having signed up myself.

    You can also sign up for Deal Guardian - which is another network by Mike Filsaime after his success in Paydotcom.

    I found this thread because I wanted to know who was behind deal guardian. I can't believe it is Mike. I stay clear of clickbank because of the fees, but I sold high dollar items through deal guardian and I really don't think I will ever promote through them again. They refuse to pay you on the first sale of every product claiming it is to keep you from buying with your own link (mike knows full well how to track ip addresses,) And they charge you for every withdrawal you make..I don't know another program that charges affiliates to get paid.

    I'm not trying to badmouth but I am stating that personally, I will not promote anything listed at deal guardian. I have listed at paydotcom but I prefer to use the newest Zaxaa. They are the developers of the Profits Theme (in competition with optimize press) Their marketplace is growing and they have some stellar customer service too.

    I know a lot of folks love Infusionsoft. I personally haven't taken the plunge yet, but it does seem like a great system.

    linkshare or shareasale

    I would avoid any platform with infamous IMers behind them

      Shareasale.com is more into physical products and not into digital products.

        Hmmm... Within about 2 minutes on ShareASale's site, I was able to put together this list of digital/software products:

        Godaddy
        StudioPress
        WpEngine
        ViewBix
        Grasshopper
        LogoNerds
        FreshDesk
        Restored316Designs

        ...And I really wasn't digging that deep.

        I (Miles) manage an affiliate program on the SAS platform (as well as others on Avantlink and ClickBank) and SAS does have some good tools for merchants.

      Use of those platforms is essentially a part of their sales funnel. They want to sell you the courses, the PLR, the software, the templates, the sales platform, etc.... NONE of it is legitimate.

    I am a affiliate of shareasale from 2 years and promote their products. I find it best one because you have a lots of programs to promote like Pay per sale, pay per lead... Payments are on time directly to my bank account. Reports are detailed and much precise than any others

  • If you truly know your "numbers" esp the epc in your software then consider some of the cpa networks like peerfly.

    I've been hearing good things about Zaaxa but haven't tried them yet..

    Out of sheer curiosity, why do you say cb or jvzoo wouldn't be a good fit and could you tell its more about your software as perhaps that would help us figure the best place for it?
