Really nice to have you with us at Wealthy Affiliate Jeannine, you offer insight from the other side of the affiliate equation that few have, and that is most valuable for us...

I am interested to know if you are now actively pursuing your own affiliate promotions outside of your professional position or perhaps in tandem with that position?

I can see the value in keeping in the game a bit, to see from this side what is going on, what is working, and what changes noted from the network side are working/not working...

Another question that pops up in my head is regarding using an affiliate platform such as yours or JVZoo, Zaxaa, JVShare (a new one for me), Warrior, etc.versus building your own platform, i.e. on-site or perhaps using a third-party software.

Which has proven to be better over time and are there any statistics showing the difference anywhere?

I ask this having some personal interest, as the next step for us, beyond cross promoting between our self-operated sites and offering products on partner sites (and vice versa) is to add an affiliate program...

This is the direction we are going, and I have many options. I can use a platform such as yours, or create one (there are tools and we have them). I am interested in results of course, and I do not believe in re-inventing the wheel...

I would be interested in your take on this too...

I also wonder what your opinion is about the Wealthy Affiliate program and what is taught here versus what you may have run across in your work.

So many questions...

In any case, have a great weekend and I really enjoyed your Black Friday/Cyber Monday article, timely and useful for all members, and the best time of year (for me in regards to business)...

Cheers!

Thanks, Dave, it’s really great to be part of Wealthy Affiliate. The members here are wonderful. I do hope I can add a different perspective too, and bridge the gap between affiliates and networks.

I do have a few sites already and am working on a few more – basically my retirement plan. Having those help me ensure that I’m always up on the latest situations and opportunities for publishers, not to mention it’s so much fun to run them.

As far as your questions about networks, there are pro’s and con’s to each choice. Of course I think you should always go with an established network rather than start one of your own, but let me tell you the reasons why.

For starters, there are economy of scale when you work with a network, on areas such as compliance, affiliate base, new technologies and more. Since being a network is our one and only job, we focus on maximizing the job we do in every aspect. We have an entire team looking for the latest fraud strategies, then make sure we are prepared to counter them. Awin can offer 100,000 affiliates to a potential advertiser – it would take you a long time to build that kind of global base on your own, if ever. Having those kinds of numbers mean we can afford to create new technologies, such as cross device tracking, dealing with the EU requirements concerning cookie tracking, offering a robust API in place with all the latest bells and whistles.

Having a network in between also means that the vast majority of issues with affiliates, tracking problems, etc, is handled by the network instead of by your team. Publishers often feel more comfortable working with a network, knowing that the tracking is being monitored, that the commissions will be paid, that there’s someone to turn to when there’s an issue. It’s what we do. So while having a network may seem like more out-of-pocket than doing it in-house, there’s a lot of value there too.

I’ve managed both in-house and network programs over the years. Using a network always made my life easier. If you do decide to go with a network, there are many out there, some specializing in things like digital downloads, working with PPC affiliates, etc., as well as general networks working across all verticals, such as Awin.com or ShareASale.com.

WA does a great job teaching people how to be affiliates. I love that the strategies shared are all "white hat," the way the good guys do things, with solid methods to build sites that will stand the test of time. That's why I've chosen to participate so much here.

Wishing you a great weekend as well!
Jeannine ;)

Hello Jeannine,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun at WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition to the Walkthrough called "After The Walkthrough". Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I just wrote my 102nd training for WA. I have categorized them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hi, thanks for the follow - nice to meet you! 1999 - oh my, you are a seasoned pro. I'll bet you've seen a lot of interesting changes in the online business ecosystem in that time. Are there any huge shifts in behaviour in that environment that you think are especially noteworthy?

Probably the biggest shift is the growth of mobile. Over 50% of all searches begin on mobile devices, so it is critical to make sure your site is mobile friendly. It's also why cross-device tracking is so critical (meaning if someone starts on their phone but completes their purchase later on their desktop, the original affiliate still gets credit). FYI, Amazon does not offer cross-device tracking. Awin.com does.

Thanks, Mitch! It's always my pleasure to share my knowledge. One of my favorite things to do in the world. I also love recommending merchants for each blog - I've done that so often I've gotten pretty good at it! So if I can help on that, let me know.
