Why Super Affiliates Succeed
Ever wonder why the super affiliates are
raking it in and you're still struggling
with affiliate programs?
Okay, it is an advantage to have a web site
with good traffic and a program related to
the theme of the web site.
It is also important to have a large list
to which you can recommend your program.
However, super affiliates do not get rich
for these reasons alone.
The main reason super affiliates succeed so
well is that they choose to promote programs
that have residual or lifetime commissions
and NOT commissions for single sales only.
What happens in most affiliate programs is
that the company which owns the product
pays the affiliate for a single sale only.
Sometimes, these programs are 2-tier.
However, the principle remains the same - one
sale, one commission.
Therefore, super affiliates choose to promote
programs with residual or lifetime commissions.
That is, they make a sale of a product which
requires constant renewal - such as web hosting
every month or a health product for a specific
That way, the affiliate does the work once and
gets paid over and over in the future on the
basis of that one sale.
The best programs are the small number that
offer lifetime commissions. These programs
allow you to keep the customer for life after
you make one sale to that person.
So you may sell an ebook in the first instance
and the customer comes back in perhaps a year
or two and buys something else from the same
company. As the customer is "yours", you will
get the commisssion.
In this way, the residual and lifetime
commissions mount up and continue to grow for
the same amount of work. Definitely, a case
of "work smarter, not harder".
Many of these super affiliates could stop work
now and continue to earn an income similar
to what they are making today on the basis
of these residual/lifetime programs.
Super affiliates know that to struggle to
make one commisssion for one sale is hard
work. Shouldn't you join them by promoting
programs with residual or lifetime commissions?
