Have a look at below, how you can go about it.
1. Try to turn customers into affiliates. You can do this by simple marketing your affiliate program to your customers. Put it in the follow-up series via email or in the product itself. Turning customers into affiliates makes them stickier, and they are low-hanging fruit to go after.
2. You can seek outside influencers simply through direct outreach. I like to combine it with content marketing. So for example, if I go to write a guest post somewhere, I will invite the influence to become an affiliate. It makes sense because I will be promoting my product through the post, and therefore why not have that link be an affiliate link for them.
