chasing something

i've been making affiliate sales for a couple years, they are usually worth between $10 and $100 (my cut being a percentage of that:)).

after checking some stats, it appears recently without knowing it, i made a single sale for $700...my cut 10%. woo hoo, i can't wait to do that daily, and then for each sale daily! lol.

there's no point to this post except i wanted to tell people who understand:)

Congratulations. Would you happen to have access to your referrer stats so that you could see exactly how much each unique visitor was? If you do, then you can figure out if this program pays more per unique visitor or unique click then other programs where the sales price is much less, but you generate a lot more sales.

If you find a program that pays really well, set up another site with unique content ( just thought I'd add the unique content bit to keep the SE's happy) and sell the same items.

There have been many successful affiliate marketers who have a lot of websites selling the same product. There are those that argue it is spam, but really it isn't as the other 10,000 webmasters you are competing against have the same product and same product info. This is just giving yourself another ping pong ball in the affiliate game lottery.

Just when I was rejoicing over my 4%-cut on a $800-widget, you come along. Party pooper ;)

Seriously, congrats!

Chasing Something & Johnnie...Congrats, it's a nice feeling and making sales never gets old! It's like an adrenaline rush :) Something I do, and I'm sure many others have done...once you start piling up the sales for a certain merchant you'll get their attention.

Once you have the merchant's attention I would think about doing this:

1. Approach said merchant and hammer out a deal directly with them, skipping the affiliate network. Why? Because you'll get a bigger cut, and likely the merchant will save as well. How? Well, the affiliate networks tend to take a pretty good chunk as the middle man.

For example:

Merchant pays affiliate network: 15%

Affiliate network pays the affiliate 10%, taking a 5% cut for themselves.

Now, if you go direct to the merchant and hammer out a deal...you could get 13%, which is more, and the merchant would be paying out 2% less...a win-win for both parties...anyways, just an idea for when you become a superaffiliate ;)

Dave.
