Q: Where do I find a solid resource, course or product to give to my newbie affiliate manager who needs to be trained on how to run a successful affiliate program? She currently has all heart with a willingness to learn, and become good at affiliate marketing.
A: There are a lot of different opportunities to learn about managing affiliate programs, such as training sessions at conferences, online courses, ebooks, etc.
But I’ve got something for you at a far more attractive price point… free.
I created a series of videos to update the chapters of my book, Successful Affiliate Marketing for Merchants, because it was published in 2001 and much of the content is now dated.
The book is still available in bookstores, and I think it’s still a useful reference for the price (< $20), but if you're looking for a quick overview with tips and advice on running an affiliate program, the videos run about an hour total. Give these videos a try before spending money, and they should provide a decent background on affiliate management.
