I bought this book thinking I would learn a lot about the best Affiliates Programs, on how to create impressive and persuasive affiliate sites, different options and ideas, and all the stuff I needed to know for becoming an affiliate. To my surprise, this book is oriented on How to create/manage an affiliate program, that is, you being the merchant and how to gather affiliates.

Other than that, the book looks awesome if you are the right reader! But it you are a newbie in affiliate marketing you may fall under the same error.

I wish someone had given me that advice before I started my program. Geno summarizes his decades of affiliate management experience in an easy to follow guide to affiliate program management.

Affiliate Program Management, An Hour A Day walks you through how to setup an affiliate program step-by-step with tactical advice and examples. Want to know how to setup your terms, welcome email, or newsletter? Geno tells you best practices and gives you his favorite examples. But this book is not only a great guide to affiliate program management, Geno also shares his marketing knowledge he has picked up over the years like landing page optimization and how to motivate people.

Buy the book. It is worth every penny.

If you have any interest in managing a marketing affiliate program this book is a must read! After recommending this book to several peers and buying it for a new hire, I decided it was about time I wrote a review. As an affiliate manager, I reference this book often. There are enough ear marks and highlighted sections for it to be easily mistaken for a college book. There were several sections that were great reviews of existing practices, others that had easy to reference lists and many 'ah ha, why didn't I think of that' items. Geno also has a blog and active twitter account where he readily answers any questions. I have already seen positive results in all my programs as a result of this book. It's a wonderful resource I will continue to count on.

For those of us in the affiliate marketing space, not much has been published about the merchant or advertiser's side of the business. In a complex, challenging and evolving industry, practical tools and thought leadership are critical. Geno's latest book builds on the subject matter from his previous book and presents it in an even more helpful format. Rather than a list of questions and answers as in the earlier book, this book is laid out as a week-by-week, month-by-month tactical plan for the new or experienced merchant. It should be on every affiliate marketer's bookshelf, whether you are a merchant or an affiliate.

It may be debatable whether "an hour a day" is realistic and perhaps it's been over-used, but the premise of allocating, organizing and prioritizing your efforts is spot on. Geno very generously shares the "tricks of the trade" and pulls back the curtain for a detailed look at how a top affiliate program manager plans, sets up, manages, and tweaks a successful affiliate program. The book is well-written and divided into delicious chunks of information that can be digested and assimilated one week at a time--or in one glorious meal if you prefer.

Geno's expertise and passion for leadership and management development shine through as he presents an innovative approach to understanding how to motivate and lead affiliates from an organizational development background. For some readers, this chapter may be a bit too academic, but worth consideration nonetheless. He adds to the professionalism of the field with his inclusion of SWOT analysis and other management techniques into the mix for competitive market analysis. His chapter on parasitism and problem affiliates is comprehensive and replete with additional resources on this sticky topic.

I recently took a new job where one of my primary responsibilities was managing my companies affiliate program. Having never managed an affiliate program I picked up this book to get me ready. I am now two months in and we have basically deconstructed the entire program and are rebuilding it from the ground up based on what I have learned in this book. Geno's book is incredible, detailed, specific and packed with information and techniques that you can start implementing right away. Using the statistics and research he has laid out in the book I was able to pull and compare what was currently being done in our program and contrast it with whats Geno's years of experience in the field had shown. We are already starting to see the financial benefits of our changes, and we are only in the first stages of implementation! I highly, highly recommend you pick this up. Whether you are just beginning in affiliate management or are a seasoned veteran there is so much good information here that you cannot afford to not get this book.

THE book for affiliate merchants.
We had an affiliate system for several years, and had the idea to refresh it.

This book is helping us make a complete turnaround.
All of a sudden we where thinking about the right words / to have more banners in more sizes / to have a clear TOS / cookie life...

Normally when reading good business books, they are really helpful but often lack one thing: call to action through structure.
This I realized after reading this book, which has a big call to action.

With this in mind, we started developing our affiliate program from scratch,
in easy to follow steps.
Writing style -> perfect for following it
Knowledge received -> more than hoped.

If you are an affiliate manager / owner of an affiliate merchant system, there is no way around this book.
It is really a must, and money well spend.

If you are an affiliate, this book could also be of help since it gives you an inside to detect good from bad merchants.

Happy to have read this book.
