Thanks I appreciate it.
Basically I’m offering a service of building an affiliate program for companies / businesses - which includes setting up the tech side, recruiting affiliates, onboarding process etc.
The big money for me is in the % of the revenue/profit or payouts, but I also charge a monthly retainer.
The challenge is - the most work is during the first months where rev/profits are low / zero. Also there’s always a risk of the program. not working, which depends on a lot of factors that have to do with the product/company.
So on my part it’s best to charge a higher retainer, and then lower when the program stabilizes, and the retainer becomes insignificant compared to %.
But for the clients it’s obviously a better deal to pay as little as possible at the beginning when they still don’t know if it’s worth the effort.
I’m trying to brainstorm an attractive model that makes it a no-brainer for clients, but also good for me.
What do you think?
(feel free to also shoot me a DM if you prefer, just thought I’d put this here incase someone else also wants to take part in discussing this)
