4. Once you found a suitable advertiser for your business, then you can click on the “Join Program” button. Some advertisers don’t consider anything and they will give you approval in minutes. But sometimes you have to accept the terms and conditions of your partner advertiser.
As you can see I have already joined the ‘Interserver affiliate’ program and so, ‘join program’ button is not available.
After that, they will look into your application. If they found it satisfactory. Your request to join their affiliate will be approved.
Note: In some cases, it might take longer than usual. So, make sure to apply for the relevant affiliate partner according to your business. develop your website completely. Don’t apply with an under construction website.
