Q: Do you know of any affiliate recruiting agencies? We are trying to find a more defined group of search affiliates that will focus on search and apparel.
A: I have heard of agencies that offer affiliate recruiting services, but there are none I would recommend.
If I were in your shoes, looking for these niche affiliates, I would do two things:
- If you are in an affiliate network, reach our to your representative and ask them to connect you with some of these affiliates.
- There are also some tools that can help in identifying prospective affiliates. If you have the budget, try Syntryx. Also, a more modest priced solution is Link Capture.
As you might have found, unless the search affiliates are redirecting traffic through their own domains, it is tough to identify them, but this can give you a start.
Either way, don’t bother with the recruiting services.
