Need additional tips on upgrading affiliate program (file sharing niche)

Hi everyone! I’ve been reading this forum for some time now and I would like to ask you to suggest me a few more tips on upgrading my affiliate program, which I have launched at my file sharing oriented web site.

This is the list of things that I have already considered to do:

  • 2nd tier commissions
  • increase the payout per download and/or install
  • “Link Exchange” page
  • referral contests
  • promotion via Twitter/Facebook etc.
  • GoogleAds etc.
  • promotion via blogs/articles
  • put a reliable security trustmark on the affiliate program page

So, is there anything else you could suggest? Thanks!

Focus on International markets as well. Most of the file sharing sites pay only for US traffic. Try to pay as much as possible for your international affiliates as well.

Thanks for the reply! In fact, my program is 99% focused on international markets, so I guess I’m okay with this.
