Been Burned by Affiliate Programs? Soon Has Too. Here's Why We Recommend Reditus.

Olaf Jacobson
Founder & Business Development, Soon

At Soon, we've been down the affiliate program road, and let me tell you, it wasn't always smooth sailing. We, like many bootstrapped founders, were enticed by the promise of explosive growth through a network of enthusiastic affiliates. We even tried a program that claimed to be the "number one affiliate network for SaaS companies."

Unfortunately, the reality fell far short of the hype. The promises made by the salesperson never materialized. We were flooded with hundreds of sign-ups from their so-called "marketplace," but none of these individuals turned out to be genuine affiliates actively promoting our product. On top of that, the fees they charged were extortionate, especially for a small, self-funded company like ours.

To add insult to injury, when we questioned the lack of results, we were met with a cold shoulder. Their contract conveniently stated that they had no obligation to deliver any specific outcomes. Needless to say, we parted ways with that program feeling burnt and disillusioned.

However, our experience with affiliate programs doesn't end there. We recently discovered Reditus, and it's been a real game-changer. Unlike the program we encountered previously, Reditus offers a free forever plan, making it the perfect platform to launch and test your affiliate program without breaking the bank. This is a godsend for bootstrapped founders who are cautious about upfront costs.

Here's why we think Reditus is a breath of fresh air in the affiliate marketing space:

  • Free Forever Plan: Get started with no upfront investment and scale up as your program grows.
  • Focus on Quality, Not Quantity: Reditus helps you find genuine affiliates who are a good fit for your brand, not just anyone with a pulse.
  • Performance-Based Model: You only pay when an affiliate drives a sale or qualified lead, eliminating the risk of wasted spend.
  • Transparent and Supportive: Reditus provides clear communication and ongoing support to help you succeed with your affiliate program.

If you're a SaaS founder considering an affiliate program, we urge you to check out Reditus. Their free forever plan allows you to experiment and see if it's the right fit for your business, without the risk of getting burned.
