Written by Shawn Collins

True, it's essential to focus onrepparttar super affiliates, because they arerepparttar 102605 drivers of most ofrepparttar 102606 sales, leads, and clicks in affiliate marketing. But that doesn't mean that those affiliates who have not achieved super affiliate status should be treated as pariahs.

The plain fact is that very few affiliate managers are bothering withrepparttar 102607 majority of their affiliates. According to findings by affiliate metrix,repparttar 102608 top reason why affiliate managers neglect their affiliates is a lack of time. Affiliate managers do not plan to fail, rather they fail to plan. A little time management can translate into a lot of longevity for an affiliate program.

Who are your affiliates? The super affiliates are a finite group. You are already communicating with them, but you've got to shift your paradigm a bit and fit in ample time forrepparttar 102609 others, that critical mass of producers that will be with you from month to month. If you step one rung belowrepparttar 102610 super affiliates, you've gotrepparttar 102611 Up-and-Comers: targeted sites that do well enough with your program to generate multiple checks each year. With a little help, they could berepparttar 102612 next big thing in your program.

Also, you've got a large segment of Onesies: low traffic and low revenue sites that will earn one (maybe) check from you per year, hence their name. And lastly, you've gotrepparttar 102613 one's to avoid…repparttar 102614 Untouchables: banner farmers, under construction sites, no focus, no content, and no traffic sites.

Time can be on your side Sure, we all have time constraints, which results in our inevitable focus on building and maintaining relationships with our super affiliates. However, it's easy enough to create shortcuts for yourself, so that you can service all affiliates, without neglectingrepparttar 102615 top affiliates.

One habit of successful affiliate managers is to compile canned answers torepparttar 102616 frequently asked questions of their affiliates. Yes, these questions should be answered in your FAQ (frequently asked questions document), but ifrepparttar 102617 affiliates are asking you, they obviously do not knowrepparttar 102618 answer.

Every time an affiliate asks a question, write out a thoughtful answer to that affiliate. But never re-writerepparttar 102619 same answer twice. Instead, create a file in Notepad where you will house all of your eloquent answers. Saverepparttar 102620 file to your Desktop, andrepparttar 102621 next time you are asked a banal question about your program, don't hitrepparttar 102622 delete button, hit your answer page, copyrepparttar 102623 answer, and shoot it off torepparttar 102624 affiliate.

For starters, answerrepparttar 102625 following questions on your answer page:

·How can I join your program? ·When and how do I get paid? ·How do I get your affiliate links? ·Can I link to your from more than one site? ·How do I update my contact information?
