What is your experience/thoughts regarding affiliate programs?
We just launched a new product into the fitness industry and are curious to hear the thoughts and experiences personal trainers have had with affiliate programs.
We would love to hear any feedback and look forward to connecting with you!
I am part of an affiliate program as part of ShareASale which is okay. It is no work for me at all.
I looked at your web site and the description of the product that you have been developing. I think it is a great idea but I had a very different thought from the one that you have brought forward. I was thinking of people with MS. Overheating is one of the greatest problems, and the summer month, even without exercise, can be very challenging. I can imagine that your vest can help there as well.
There are a lot of ways to do it, as far as marketing and linking the affiliate. Personally I would prefer a website banner to start. And if you would provide inexpensive marketing materials, I would be far more likely to market a product offline. I'm not going to invest my own money marketing your product when I only earn 5-15% on total purchases. With that being said, a discount for verified professionals would help get your product in our hands.
Essentially you need to make it as easy and simple as possible for us. Get it in our hands any way you can, and really sell the product to us. Make us want to sell your product, and wish all our clients had one.
