One should not approach these business owners as a family member or friends but as a work colleague. The person approaching these owners of businesses and professionals should focus on the product and the affiliate lead itself in order to be successful in recruitment efforts. The recruiter should also self evaluate their own affiliate network success and apply the knowledge to their efforts.
The professional approach should be extended to all telephone and other correspondence to the small business owner and professional.

The affiliate lead recruiter should attempt to call small business owners cold which is not an easy task but a great exercise for confidence and building skills necessary for affiliate network recruitment.
