That's pretty much my view as well. I asked without disclaiming anything in advance because I actually was a DirectTrack Network customer for a couple of years; using the system primarily to manage affiliate programs on behalf of my company's clients. We chose that system in the belief that we were future-proofing ourselves so that we could use it to roll out a full-blown regional network if we felt that the market was there, but we unfortunately found it too inflexible for our needs and didn't want to be locked in to using a system that we couldn't build upon using our in-house development talent.

As an affiliate, I've long had a similar impression. I use and admire DirectLeads.com, but don't see much value in most of the DirectTrack networks that exist, particularly since several seem to be reselling offers from other networks. While DirectTrack certainly is robust enough to power a network, I personally get the impression that those who are prepared to develop their own technology are often those who are prepared also to invest into proactive sales teams and affiliate management services. This is all very subjective, of course, but I've always had the best relationships and the best success when dealing with networks that do run on proprietary technology.
We have run similar paths I made the call not to use DT at a time when truthfully i should have - but in the end it worked out..

Hi OnlineMedia and welcome to Geek/Talk.

These days, unless you have a well established brand and high visibility online, the best way to manage a program is through one of the leading affiliate networks. This helps to instil trust, as superaffiliates know they will be paid on predictable terms, while giving you instant access to a broad base of affiliates; saving you the substantial cost often associated with marketing a standalone affiliate program.

Once the program is in place, communicating with pro affiliates via forums such as this, SitePoint, WebmasterWorld, ReveNews, 5StarAffiliates and others will keep you on the radar. Personal relationships still drive a lot of decisions in this industry, so if superaffiliates grow to like and trust you as an affiliate manager, they're more likely to actively push your program.

I hope this helps,

Even before selecting specific sponsors, be sure that you know what your site is about. And make it a fairly tight focus.Also consider the amount of competition in certain categories (financial, music, etc), compared to some other, less competative topic. In the first case, you could be the "low man on the totem pole," but in the second case, your could be the "big fish in a small pond," which could potentially get a better financial bottom line.
If you are good at SEO, know how to work with datafeeds and customize them with lots of unique content so they don't look like cookie cutter sites you can do quite well. There are even tools like the IPC that help you build custom sites in around a minute without having to do any datafeed programming
