An affiliate's web site targets visitors, who may not necessarily view a merchant's web site, and therefore expands a merchants market.

Keep in mind, not all affiliates are going to produce a high volume of traffic, and importantly, visitors who want to purchase a merchant's products or services. The occasional gem makesrepparttar 102372 time taken well worth your effort. Talk with successful affiliates, find out what they are doing to effectively promote your software, and use that information to assist those affiliates who are not as successful.
