MBA2182 4 Affiliate Program Models to Make More Sales + Free Ride Friday

Affiliate marketing: one of the best ways to grow your business.

We would know! There’s currently a small army of content creators and other industry pros pushing our SaaS platform, and we couldn’t be more grateful.

It’s slightly more complex than simply “You sell my thing, you get a cut.” There’s more than one way to set up your affiliate program — and choosing the way that best suits your business is critical.

Today, we share 4 specific models. We’ll discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each, and what you’ll need to consider before choosing one. 

Having non-employees act as marketers and salespeople on your behalf is definitely a good thing, but you have to approach it strategically. The more intentional you are at the beginning, the better the results will be later. Click Play!
