Affiliate Manager

If you have ever launched an affiliate program and found that it really did not help you very much, you are not alone.

My latest post on the virtual buzz assistant blog is why you should hire a virtual assistant as an affiliate manager.

This is critical - whether you are trying to grow a downline in something like iLearning Global or you are trying to build your own affiliate program, it is going to be harder than you think. You need to have good marketing material, good community building and good sales coaching. A virtual assistant can become very good at these things.

What I especially love is the fact that you have very clear outcomes.

  • Number of monthly new affiliates
  • Revenue of sales from affiliate program
  • Reports on conversion of different ads and sales pages
You cannot get much more clear than that.
