Everyone wants to know what an Outsourced Program Manager (OPM) costs. It actually isn’t an easy question. But the first answer is easy. If you are looking for a manager to work on just commission, look elsewhere. You are looking for a manager because your company needs to make more money with your affiliate program or online marketing strategy. That means that right now you aren’t making what you want. And our services are designed to help you grow, but that growth takes time and effort. We don’t work for “free” while we grow your program. Many merchants look at it as an “incentive” to pay commission only. That isn’t an incentive. Our incentive is to help you get going. That takes our time and experience. So the costs for services range from $2000 to $5000 a month, PLUS a percentage of your sales. Our services are priced based on the number of hours your program requires per month to manage.
Every company is different, and has different needs, that is why there is a range of pricing. At the very least your company needs to have someone recruit and activate your affiliates. Part of that process includes communication via direct email and newsletters, and developing tools and resources for your affiliates. We analyze your website and recommend changes that make your site not only affiliate friendly, but shopper friendly. Affiliates need to like your site PLUS it needs to convert those shoppers your affiliates send into buyers.
Some companies have a need just for consulting to get started and train their own staff to manage their program, we have plans that fit the needs of these companies as well. We also have some web design and blog install services available.
Give us a call for a free phone consultation to see what your program needs to get started or revitalized.
