Where do I find affiliate partners?
I have developed an online coaching program for young professionals. I am ready to offer excellent commission, but I am wondering where I could find suitable partners.
You shall begin by designing the exact profile you're looking for, listing requirements and skills.
After, the easier is to generate a lead thanks to social network (professionnal of course)
And now, the last step, you approach them, check their profils, experiences ...
And it's done !
You can contact teachers either of schools or the tutorials instructors.. They might have ample opening and wud be comfortable with the alternate earning.
You would be able to get response from prospective partners if you post your query on face book /linked in.
Initially target market through social media or linkedin. Search for those in related businesses that already have a client base that could be looking for additional services to offer.
Couple ideas to help with affiliate marketing. Affilorama - http://www.affilorama.com and Clickbank are two resources that I have worked with. Good luck!
I think affiliate partners are available on different sites like linked-in . their are many sites ,you have to search for it .
You can find some of the top affiliate marketers and JV Partners in the Warrior Forum. http://www.warriorforum.com/warrior-joint-ventures/
I am in the same basic business. Unfortunately, the market for these kind of personal branding services is extremely competitive with many varieties of "life coaches" pitching their services 24/7. In this highly competitive online market the chance of finding a suitable partner is like looking for a needle in a haystack. I have partnered up with a group of tech-savvy recent graduates who already have access to the population that I am interested in so I am basically piggy-backing on their existing customer base. Good luck.
I would steer clear of WarriorForum if I were you, there's very much an "us and them" feel about it and you need to actually befriend someone fairly high up over a lengthy period of time to have a successful launch there (and you actually have to partner up for them to do it meaning you'll lose a percentage of your profit, usually 50/50).
There are other affiliate networks out there though, just search for "Affiliate networks for digital products". One of the biggest and most well known is Clickbank but I believe they have a condition that coaching is not allowed (there's been a lot of scammers out there coaching over the last 5 years).
You could also take it in-house and set up your own affiliate system using HasOffers as a backend framework, but you'll need to get the leads yourself through networking, at least that way, you decide the commission structure.
Finally, another option to consider, and best in terms of ease, is an actual coaching/mentoring community.
