Okay, I'm an ideas guy. I'll admit it. My aim in this little article is to reveal to you some ideas that you've likely never heard before. Whether you are a program manager or an affiliate, or both, there should something of value below!

Idea #1 - Affiliate Link Rotation

IF you own an affiliate program then why not increaserepparttar incentive of your affiliates by placing *their* link on your site? I mean that your home page *is* hardcoded to their affiliate link!

All you'd need to do is set up a redirect on your index page with their affiliate link in it.

Why do this? Well, it will get you a whole bucket full more affiliates for one thing! Can you imagine how they will feel? "Wow, this merchant's going to credit me with all sales / sub-affiliates that come to his home page!"

There are two methods you could employ to rotate this, depending upon your traffic.

(a) If you get only a few sales you might offer your new affiliatesrepparttar 102528 opportunity to have their link remain active until they get a sale - a guarantee from you!

(b) If you have a high volume of sales then you may wish to allow only a certain time period (or, more fairly, a certain number of hits) for each affiliate link.

Of course, how easily you can do this will depend upon your affiliate software.

Idea #2 - Getting SubAffiliates

If you are an affiliate and want more sub-affiliates then you *must* offer an incentive to your subscribers / site visitors to join up under you.

Here's an example of how I did this. I set up a page on one of my sites (www.writers-and-publishers.com/earnmoney.html )
