Finding high quality affiliates might be the biggest pain point regarding affiliate programs.
We're going to try fixing this(at least partially) for our customers by launching some kind of private network/marketplace, totally different from what you're used to. A different approach is required because current affiliate marketplaces don't work well for SaaS companies.
We can't say much right now, just that:
- you'll still be able to keep the affiliate program private if you want
- your competitors won't have access to the affiliates that you bring to the marketplace like current marketplaces do
- partnerships and relationships will still count a lot, but most of the process will be automated
When it's ready, it will be released to a selection of customers and if the initial results are promising, we'll launch it to everyone. We can't guarantee anything right now, but we're very confident about it.
