Affiliate Program Checklist:

Affiliate and other cooperative programs are announced almost

daily. Website owners are flocking to these programs. Enthusiasm

is high. But………why not compare and evaluate first?

The following checklist was prepared from the point of view of one

seeking a program to affiliate with. But it can also help a program

initiator compare current programs in order to make his better.

A. Does the Program Offer a Strategic Fit to Your Business?

1. PROGRAM PURPOSE – Define in broad terms

2. COMPLEMENTS YOUR PURPOSE – Does it help you better

realize your website long-range goals?

3. VISITOR LEARNING – Are your visitors interested and will

the

program help them learn?

B. Do You Trust the Business Initiating the Program?

4. SUCCESS – Does the business have a history of successes?

5. BELIEVABLE ADVERTISING – Does it promise impossible

rewards: get-rich-quick and MLM schemes? Or is it honest and

realistic?

6. REPUTATION – What does the business literature tell you about

their past operations?

7. WHAT CLIENTS SAY – Contact current clients and ask for

their opinions. Would they recommend this business

organization? Are they benefiting from it?

C. Is the Program Well Designed?

8. AFFILIATE QUALIFICATIONS – Are they signing up

everyone? Or are they being picky? Picky is better.

9. AFFILIATE RESPONSIBILITIES – Better, too, if there are

specific responsibilities. Are affiliates asked to do

promotion, communication with customers, sales?

10. INITIATOR RESPONSIBILITIES – Does the outfit offer help

in promotion, sales and after-sales support?

11. PAYMENT & TERMS – Is there a fee or commission

structure? How frequently are payments made? Does affiliate

get credit for future sales?

12. TRANSACTION TRANSPARENCY – How frequently are

transaction reports made? Are transactions independently

checkable by the affiliate? Is there a third-party audit?

13. CONFLICT RESOLUTION – Is there a SIMPLE method for

resolving conflicts?

14. RETURN TO SITE – Is there a simple way for a website

visitor to return to the site of the affiliate after a

transaction is executed?

D. Will You be Part of a Community?

15. COMMUNICATION MEDIUM – Does the program have a

newsletter, a mailing list, a forum, or some other means of

communicating among all affiliates?

16. AFFILIATE DECISION-MAKING – Does each affiliate have

a voice in making decisions that affect all affiliates?

17. MUTUAL PROBLEM SOLVING – Is there a method whereby

affiliates can pose problems and have them solved by the

affiliate community?- – – – – – – – – – – –

Be extremely careful when evaluating an affiliate program. Most

people dwell on the financial arrangements. These are important, of

course. But more important, I believe, are efforts made to achieve

community. These efforts may bolster your ability to achieve

greater financial goals.
