But - you don't need an affiliate manager to run your affiliate program for you.
I've worked as an affiliate manager for more than a decade and I kept a LOT of closely guarded trade secrets that my team and I called our "playbook."
Why don't Affiliate Managers want to share these secrets?
Think about it...When you hire an Affiliate Manager to run a launch or program for you, you pay them hundreds of thousands of dollars...so they can help you manage the dozens of moving parts and intricacies of a successful affiliate program.
...and if you want to KEEP having a successful affiliate program, you have to KEEP paying them hundreds of thousands of dollars.
It's a really good deal for you and them...but more so for them.
I know because I've been paid millions of dollars over the past 19 years to run affiliate programs for people like Michael Hyatt, Ray Edwards, Brian Tracy, Jeff Goins, Lewis Howes, Shutterfly, Peter Voogd, Claire Diaz-Ortiz, Ziglar, Inc., Shark Tank's Kevin Harrington, Rich Schefren and many others.
