Promoting your Affiliate Program with Directories- Part II

In Part I we had discussed some options for setting up your own associate program. Now, in 004_24 Part II we'll look at what you need to do to get the word out to those who may be interested in signing up as an affiliate of your new venture.

The best place to start is to list your program with the directories that exist for just this purpose. If you do some research you'll find many "associate directories" to list with. Since these directories are usually the first place people go when looking for an affiliate program to join, getting listed with as many of them as possible will work to your advantage and make it easier for them to find you and what you have to offer.

Here are some of the best free directories:

1) Associate Programs

This site is the gospel for associate programs so you really want to get listed here. You must drill down to the proper category to make your free submission. Make sure you fill in as much
detail as possible and make it good, as over half of the submissions are rejected.

2) Affiliate Channel

Fill in the short form and you're good to go. All submissions are reviewed by a live human, so
make it good.

3) Affiliates Directory

Bills itself as "The Net's Largest Affiliate Program Directory." Free listing as long as your program has a website and is not MLM.

4) Associate Search

Choose your category, and fill in the short form to get your free listing.

5) Affiliate Guide

A regular listing is free but if you want to come out at the top, you have the option of paying for a 'premium' listing.

6) Affiliate Match

Free listing is offered to all; just fill in the short form with your programs details and you're
good to go.

7) Affiliate Promoter

Accepts all types of affiliate programs except for adult programs. All submissions are reviewed.

Nice directory broken down by subject and sub categories. You'll have to submit your site to the proper category for inclusion.

So there you have it; the top directories to list your associate program with. Remember, an affiliate program is a great way to increase your sales, but it won't do you a bit of good if no one knows about it. By submitting to as many directories as possible you can be sure you'll be easily found when an affiliate is searching for a great  money-maker to join.
