Starting an affiliate program seemed like the last thing I wanted to do during my first year online, but once I did everything changed. I invited my list to sign up as my affiliates, and they began to send their friends, contacts, and people from their lists to sell my products and courses.
Even though all of us had very small lists, there was power in the numbers from everyone combined. My business began to take off, and I realized this was an excellent way to grow more quickly.
I use the affiliate program provided with my shopping cart service. You can also find smaller sites that offer affiliate programs as well. Just go to Google and do a search.
Even if you only have one product for sale online, start your own affiliate program and invite your list to sign up. It will increase your income and help you to find partners to do more business with over time.
