We tried to build our own affiliate network through one of the Shopify apps offered, but it takes a lot of time and effort to recruit bloggers, etc. Even the ones that did sign up did not bring any traffic to the site. We did offer a great percentage. It was not worth the monthly fee of $60+.
I was wondering if anyone uses the shareasale affiliate program. Can anyone say that it's worth the pretty hefty sign up fee ($550+)? Feels like everyone in the fashion industry uses the Rewardstyle program (it's tough to get approved here).
If anyone could give me some good advice on this, I would really appreciate it!
Hey! Shareasale will be a great option for you once you develop your brand and get some recognition within yoru niche. In the beginning it is definitely not worth it as it will be very tough to get affiliates promoting an unknown brand.
I know it sounds exciting to get other people making sales for you but it is not worth the investment in the beginning in my hoest opinion.
Best of luck!
