Articles are perfect promotional tool for your affiliates - they bring in more sales than banners, book covers, and ezine ads. Your affiliates can post them on their website, use them in their newsletter, or turn them into a free eBook.
One easiest ways to build your affiliate program is to offer your articles as a zip file and allow people to replace link in resource box with their affiliate link.
Here is how to do it:
1. Copy all your articles as text files, formatted to 60 characters-per-line, to a single folder on your hard disk.
2. Create another text file in same folder called 'index of articles' which lists each article by title and file name.
3. In 'index of articles' write a brief message explaining how to join your affiliate program and how to customize affiliate link in resource box.

Then just zip your 'articles' folder using WinZip. WinZip is free and can be downloaded from: http://www.winzip.com/download.htm
