Dustin has a decade’s worth of experience in the affiliate and influencer marketing industry. Most folks are experts at 10,000 hours of work. Dustin has doubled that with 20,000 hours spent growing and scaling thousands of partner programs!

His conclusion earlier this year? Most affiliate programs don’t perform well due to poor management. So Dustin launched his own advisory service as well as the only online certification course for aspiring affiliate managers.

How to Become a Certified Affiliate Manager

In this LeadDyno-powered affiliate and influencer marketing newsletter we’ll discuss how you can:

  • Become a certified affiliate manager,
  • Collect 5-star reviews for your affiliate program,
  • Hire an expert to run your program, and
  • Find a good website developer.

#1 – How to Become a Certified Affiliate Manager

Partner, friend and affiliate manager Dustin Howes has launched an online course that’ll teach you how to be a top affiliate manager:

Dustin is sharing his expertise to teach applicants how to successfully launch and scale multi-million dollar affiliate channels. He’s also pointing out the common mistakes that affiliate managers (especially newbies) make – and how to avoid them.

Interested in launching a profitable “performance marketing” channel? Who isn’t?!

Get certified and get access to Dustin and his affiliate smarts. Learn more about Performance Marketing Manager here.

#2 – Get 5-Star Reviews for Your Affiliate Program

Our E-Commerce Affiliate Network (ECA) is on its way to becoming “Yelp for affiliate programs.” We rolled out a review feature that lets your affiliate partners review your program.

I know that LeadDyno-powered affiliate programs tend to be better run, feature cooler products and pay more generous commissions than your industry average. So here’s a chance for us to highlight your excellent affiliate programs with 5-star reviews from your partners!

It’s pretty easy to leave a review. Your affiliates will simply log into their ECA accounts, select Rate Merchant, and leave your review right there. As you collect reviews, you’ll see your “star rating” populate thanks to your partners:

Any questions? Let me know. (And thank you to the three affiliate partners of ours who kindly reviewed our program before I even announced this!)

#3 – Need an Affiliate Manager? Hire Geno’s Team

Do you need an expert affiliate manager today to run your affiliate program for you? If so, let me introduce you to my friend and colleague Geno Prussakov. He’s one of the best in the business for scaling and managing successful affiliate programs. He also has an impressive rolodex of influencers, too.

Last year, I sat down and asked Geno a few questions. You can read the full interview here. If you’re interested in potentially hiring Geno’s firm AM Navigator, here’s where we got down to brass tacks in our conversation:

What’s the minimum budget a merchant or marketer should have in mind when looking to engage a firm like yours?

Much depends on the type of relationship the merchant is looking for. Fees on fully outsourced management solutions start from a couple of thousand dollars a month, while in co-management scenarios (where there is a strong internal support of the program and some of the management-related tasks are handled in-house), we are open to working with smaller budgets.

And how about time commitment. If I wanted to hand off my affiliate marketing efforts to you, how much time should I still plan on dedicating? In other words, how much responsibility can I outsource to you, and automate via products like LeadDyno?

In full outsourced management context, the advertiser’s time commitment may be as brief as 1-2 hours a week, and likely not even every week. In co-management cases, several hours a week.

For readers interested in possibly taking the next step towards outsourcing their affiliate program management, what step(s) can they take next?

Take a look at the services that we offer, and then request your quote, providing as much detail as possible. I personally respond to every quote request within 12 hours of its submission.

Update: Geno now has a LinkedIn Course on Affiliate Marketing – you can watch it right here!

#4 – Need a Good Web Developer? Talk to Craig

Good, reliable web developers are tough to come by. If you’re nodding your head, well, I’ve got some good news for you. My friend Craig recently launched his own firm, and he can help with website and e-commerce projects at a reasonable cost.

Sunshine Digital is the place for those of you looking for website help from a reliable team based right here in the US (Florida, to be specific). If you chat with Craig, please do tell him that I sent you. Contact him about your next project here.

Finally, Congrats to These Featured Affiliate Programs

We feature 5 affiliate programs every day in our email newsletters and Facebook posts for the affiliates and influencers. Congratulations to these well-deserving affiliate programs that saw their names in lights over the past week!

Would you like to have your affiliate program featured? Please let me know!

First step is to join ECA (if you haven’t already). Click the Network tab from within LeadDyno (lower-left corner) to setup your merchant profile. Then, I can work with you to polish your profile and get you dialed in for your feature.

Affiliate Dashboard app for mobile

Text Message Affiliate Marketing? It’s Here

Your affiliates and influencers can now share their links via text messages! And it’s especially easy with our Affiliate Dashboard mobile app. Here are the details…

Text Message Affiliate Marketing with One-Click

Our Text sharing shortcut is now available on affiliate dashboards when accessed from mobile devices (via our mobile app or the phone’s web browser). Affiliates can simply click the button to share their link with a text message (just as they would any other social sharing button.)

That’ll pull up the phone’s text messaging app. It’ll kickoff a new message, with the affiliate’s link already in the body of the new message. It’s text sharing made easy!

Affiliate Dashboard Apps for Android and iPhone

There are two ways your affiliates can access your dashboard from their mobile device:

I like the convenience of the mobile app myself. To access it, I just tap the Affiliates icon on my phone:

text message affiliate marketing

That gives me the shortcut to access the dashboard itself directly from my phone. So that I can share my affiliate link via text message, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

In addition to our new text message affiliate marketing feature, we have more new items to announce. Here’s a quick rundown.

And 5 New LeadDyno Features

1 – More details for affiliates about their purchases.

You can now enable “Show Commission Details” on this page to show more details about the purchases that are driving commissions:

https://app.leaddyno.com/content/dashboard_customization

2 – More characters for affiliate terms of service.

We initially had a character limit – not anymore. Take as much space as you’d like when outlining terms of service for your affiliates to opt into.

3 – Date range for affiliate analytics.

We continue to cater to your partners who send serious traffic by letting them break down their referral stats and sources.

4 – Let affiliates see names of their downlines.

A big request from the multi-level affiliate marketing folks – we now let affiliates in multi-level setups see the names of their downline affiliates.

5 – AWeber integration for affiliate newsletters.

And our integration with AWeber is now live. This platform joins HubSpot as another partner option for sending affiliate newsletters (in addition to the built-in email tool we have within LeadDyno itself).
