Chances are, you know I sell skins for the Thesis Theme. Like any other “good” WordPress theme vendor out there, I offered an affiliate program. Just because it’s something that seemed… normal.
You know about affiliate programs I’m sure. They give people incentives (cuts of commissions) to promote a company’s product. I think affiliate programs are great (and I do participate in a few), and I am not trying to bash the idea of having one.
I just don’t think they’re for me. But my most important realization: I don’t think they add much value to my business as it is today.
