Your Homework.

1)- Dare to compare – Find an affiliate marketing company that closely resembles your product or service.  You may have to review a few to get a good idea.  Find one that really fits your company.  Remember you are just comparing to see what they have and how it would relate to your companies goals.

2)- Draft your work – From the comparisons you did, start putting together a draft to help in creating a presentation for your boss.  If you are working with a team, each of you can share the load.  Then put together a final rough draft.

a.  Research – Depending on what you encounter, you may need more supporting research with the company you selected as a sample to follow.

b.  Interviews – You can always contact the company you are using as a model and ask questions about their program.  If they are willing to answer them, you’ll have more data for your draft.

3)- Review draft – After you complete your rough draft, you can submit to your immediate supervisor for approval if necessary.  Otherwise, you and your team can review it to make sure no further changes are needed.

4)- Prepare final presentation – Prepare for submission to your boss to present your proposal about affiliate marketing as a business model for your company.   You may want to create multiple copies for your staff and to save as a backup.

Note – The above is just a basic outline of what you should do.  If your company has other requirements, they would take precedence over these.  This was just a guide to help set your plans in motion.

Revisions – If your proposal was partially accepted, keep that version as a backup to refer to and build from it to a more acceptable version.
