A common questions I get when I say my affiliate program audits cost $X,XXX is “Well XYZ firm did it for free so why won’t you?”. My response to that is always “Well, you get what you pay for”. When I sent that to one company in particular, they sent me the audit/evaluation from a competitor (which was not cool of them to do) and it was exactly what I expected.
It ended up being a series of three power point slides or about 1 page worth of actual content. It proved my point as to why real affiliate audits cost thousands of dollars and is why I’m writing this post.
It is broken out into two main parts.
- Why it costs so much (me rambling a bit)
- What you should expect to see from basic affiliate program audits as far as deliverables (this is the good stuff)
