Use attributes in format region_from and region_to= to change the languages showing in language switcher.
Available regions are:
europe_from europe_to
asia_from asia_to
mideast_from mideast_to

europe_from=0 europe_to=22 will put all languages (ordered in language switcher settings) from 1 to 21 to Europe region:
asia_from=22 asia_to=25 will put all languages from 23 to 24 (so only 2) into Asia region.

Have you already started your affiliate program but you are still having troubles to find new affiliate partners to promote your products? In the following list, we’ll show you the best way to find and retain affiliate partners.

  1. Make Your Affiliate Program More Visible
    Include a link to your affiliate program on your website. You can just insert it in your footer. Affiliates tend to look there first as this is the typical place to link to your affiliate program information and sing-up page.
  2. Invite Influencers and Niche Bloggers to Review Your Products
    Look for influencers in your niche and reach out directly. Try to build a long term relationship – don’t just pitch your affiliate program. Have them test your products for free first, then introduce them to your affiliate program and offer them to publish comprehensive reviews. 
  3. Offer VIP Conditions for Best Performing Affiliates
    Reward your best performing affiliates with higher commissions or special performance bonuses.
  4. Find websites that you think best complement your service or product and and reach out to encourage them to join your program.
  5. Write Clear Terms of Your Program
    This one goes with out saying – try to offer clear and easy to understand commission structure and payout options.
  6. Growth Hack Your Product
    Get creative and use one of the best growth hacks to boost your product’s exposure and find affiliates organically.
  7. Create a page with most important facts about your program 
    Do not forget to include these main points: 
    – commissions (how much $ affiliates get from a sale)
    – length of cookies (days, months)
    – who gets the commission (the first, last or all referring affiliates)
    – payment (when, how)
  8. Offer an Attractive Commission 
    Be generous and offer high motivating commission for your affiliates. Avoid offering low commision as 5-10% unless your products are very costly, try to get your commission as close as you can to 25-30%. If you run a SaaS, our recommended commission is 20%-30%.
  9. Have an Amazing Product 
    Offering high commission is not enough, you need to own a great product/service which actually attracts a lot of customers and mainly appears interesting to your affiliates.
  10. Join Affiliate Communities 
    This gives you the possibility to get in touch with your potential affiliates in an inexpensive way. Try to help them with their problems, write some tips and tricks for them and you can undirectly promote your own affiliate program as well.

    Joining affiliate communities like the affiliate marketing forumaffLIFT, gives you access to over 40,000 affiliates at once! They may not all be interested in your affiliate program, but by providing value to the community, you are sure to get some business in return.
