run a printing & engraving company specializing in engraved awards & plaques. I wish to add I reseller/affiliate program to my awards website. I want to give our affiliates two ways to earn money. The first being a traditional affiliate program with tracking links, banners, text links and such… I need someone to provide and install a decent affiliate program into our Zen cart (osCommerce). Something that is easy for affiliates to use with a decent admin program.
The second program I wish to implement is an actual resellers program where the resellers can be setup with an actual website that they can market using their own domain name or a free web address that we would provide, probably a folder on a generic domain. Any orders from their custom website will simply come straight to us for processing, each month a commission will be paid to them wither via PayPal or via check in the mail.
My web server does not support asp, this will need to be coded in php. I would like these pages to be as search engine friendly as possible focusing on the keyword phrase "affiliate program marketing".
Let me know your thoughts on the message board. Tell me how you can implement these programs. Do you think the reseller website will need to be created manually or can this be somewhat automated?
