Forgot to mention in my last post that upon completion of an application, you, the affiliate are paid a fixed amount for the lead generated.
In almost all cases, you are paid for the lead whether or not the person filling out the application is 'closed'. For example: for a completed mortgage application you may be paid $25. You are paid the commission even if the person filling out the application does not actually get the loan.
One difference with the lead gen programs is that those that pay per completed application and those that pay per completed form. What's the difference?
An application can be sometimes 3-5 pages in length think filling out an employment application for a company.
A completed form is generally shorter in length and depth of questions, think inquiring if the company is hiring.
Generally programs with applications will pay higher rates since their forms are longer. However, don't just look at the price. The conversion rate is really the deciding factor on how much you'll earn in the end.
