While it might seem like a daunting task, there are several basic componentsyoull need to consider as you get your program started.The PromotionBefore you start looking for places to promote your product or service, think about what exactly it is youwant to promote and how you want to promote it. Will you be promoting your brand in general or aspecific product/service? How are you going to entice consumers to click on your ad? Many brands useoffers to attract consumers.

To incentivize partners, youmay want to include performance bonuses for achieving a level of qualified transactions. Mostadvertisers will also want to include a click referral period to limit how long a consumer is considered tobe referred from an affiliate.Affiliate PartnersOnce you have determined your promotion, come up with the creative, and created an insertion order,youre ready to find affiliate partners.

If youreconsidering adding partners that promote in the same channel you currently have in place (e.g. searchor email), ensure your insertion order terms clearly define thei r limitations so that affiliates efforts donot cannibalize your internal efforts. For online partners, take a moment to review their website. Makesure the content on their site is information that is relevant to your target audience. See which otherbrands they are promoting and in what manner.
