3 Ways To Increase Your Affiliate Sign-Ups
By Larry Dotson
1) Build up the number of people who join your free affiliate program quickly by temporarily offering your product for free to the people who sign up. You could always end it after you have a 1000 or so affiliates. Those 1000 affiliates should refer enough people to make up for your loss.
2) Negotiate with e-zine publishers to get free or discounted ads by letting them join your affiliate program and earn commissions on the ad you run. You could also offer them other incentives like a free product, a reciprocal e-zine ad, a membership to a business club, etc.
3) Create offline affiliates to market your product. Have people sign up at your web site to sell your products through "house parties". You could have people taking their laptops to parties and selling through their affiliate links. They will get paid just like they would online.

If the projections are on target, Latin America will have nearly the same amount of mobile phone subscribers in 2007 as the U.S. is expected to have by the end of 2003.
The Yankee Group forecasts the total number of mobile users in Latin America will grow from nearly 104 million in 2002 to 154 million in 2007, an 8 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR). Consequently, handset sales are expected to increase as well, reaching annual sales of 22 million new units by the end of 2003.The research firm expects annual sales will vary from 19 million to 22 million new units from 2004 until 2006.
Doctors increasingly turn to the Web for drug information, giving the pharmaceutical industry a prime marketing opportunity, yet physicians still want to continue the offline practice of receiving lavish perks for paying attention.
Jupiter Research (a unit of this site's corporate parent) found that 58 percent of Web-savvy doctors have participated in online pharmaceutical promotion programs, known as e- detailing, in which a drug is explained through a presentation and samples are offered. What's more, these doctors are prime targets for pharmaceutical companies, seeing an average of 157 patients a week. Additionally, about three-quarters of them write more than 200 prescriptions per week.
Most companies were in the dark when it came to dealing with the blackout of August 2003, a survey from Info-Tech Research Group found. Research from the Ontario-based firm revealed that more than 60 percent of the 107 IT professionals from U.S. mid-sized companies that were queried did not have formal plans and procedures in place to deal with the power outage.
Survey participants saw the outage as a wake-up call, and they are taking steps to better prepare for the next blackout which 82 percent believe will happen within the next 12 months. Nearly two-thirds (63 percent) said that they were either going to create a new disaster recovery plan, or update an existing plan; 20 percent said that they were planning on purchasing a backup generator; and 18 percent said that they were going to review their agreements with their service providers.
A price war could help satellite TV service operators counteract the growing digital cable penetration. A 2003 report from J.D. Power and Associates reveals that the barely significant monthly price increase in satellite TV services could lead the migration from cable TV. "Digital cable hasn't turned out to be the solution the cable industry needed to stem the tide of migration to satellite providers," said Steve Kirkeby, senior director of telecommunications research at J.D. Power and Associates.
