Here's a great question I received today about organizing your passwords for your affiliate programs.
I am looking to see how affiliate marketers stay organized with all their affiliate programs, links, etc. Do you have info on any of your sites that could help with that or know of any courses or anything that could give me some good tips? I'm a bit flustered when it comes to going into my favorites to find links and graphics, etc to add to my different sites.
That's a fantastic question! 🙂
I organize my passwords using a free program called: http://passwordsafe.sourceforge.net/ . It handles all my usernames & passwords. (I've used it for 3 or 4 years now and love it.)
Update (2010): I now use Roboform which
you can learn more about here: Roboform for Password Management.
As for my actual affiliate links, I use redirects for everything, so I can find and update them easily. 🙂
You may also consider creating a “hidden” page on one of your websites where you store your affiliate links (but not your passwords as it wouldn't be secure). Put THAT in your favorites, instead, so you can just refer to it whenever you are putting together a promotion. Instead of looking all over the place, you can have everything together.
I hope that helps!
