How many people are earning a full-time income in affiliate marketing?
Just to sue an arbitrary figure, how many are earning $3000 per month?

Has anyone seen any statistics on this? How many affiliate marketers are there out there, and what percentage makes at least $3000 per month after expenses?

I'm sure the real answer is anybody's opoinon but does anyone have an educated guess?

My guess would be 20%, may be 25 tops.

Percentage of what? People who sign up for affiliate accounts and put up at least one link? I bet it's less than 1%.

My guess is the same as Frup's, I think it's less than 1 percent.

How many are actually affiliate marketers and how many are wannabes? Anyone who puts up a link and expects sales to roll in is a wannabe. Way less than 1% of wannabe's but for true AM's ( those whose full time income comes from AM) it must be much higher or they wouldn't be full time AM's.

Most AM's fall somewhere between wannabes and full time AM's so the number will also fall between these two extremes.

I'd say that it's way less than 1%

It's not as easy as most people think to make STEADY money as an affiliate... it takes a lot of work and marketing money.

I have been a "full time" affiliate since 2000, meaning that I quit my day job and haven't looked back since. It's not that easy, there are a lot of highs and lows.

I'd say that anyone who is willing to work hard at either building websites or paid adverts can make money, the others just get lucky and it usually doesn't last.

less than 1%, and I am the lucky one from 1%. Its only 6 months from when I joined CJ, and this month I will easily cross $3000 , last month I made $2300 .

$3000 is a big amount for where I live, Pakistan.
only Director's of big crops here receive this amount of salary.

Remember, this forum also covers advertising sales.

There are certainly people who have no affiliate content but still earn over $3K. I'm not saying that is easy but you shouldn't ignore this alternative.
