Get High Commissions from your Affiliate Programs
A good way to tell if the affiliate program you belong to is serious
about their affiliate program commissions is the percentage they
are paying you. If someone is offering you 10% commission, and they
are keeping the rest, then you need to ask yourself "Should

their affiliates and another 10% to the 2nd tier. That’s 55%!
They only keep 45% and it’s from this that they take their
costs. Either they’ve gone completely mad or they are very
smart! I suspect they are very smart.
By paying such high affiliate program commissions they are attracting
many affiliates to their programs. This means they can sell a higher
volume. With a higher volume of sales they can afford to give away

Because they are giving so much away to their affiliates with high
commissions it shows they are supremely confident in the worth of
their product or service and its ability to sell itself. Their product
or service is that good.
The affiliates are doing all the pre-selling, all the hard work,
getting the eyeballs at their web sites. You want to get paid for
it. Do not accept 10% commission rates. Set yourself a standard
of nothing less than 20% and make sure that the 20% is more than

It is with the big-percentage payers where you can make some decent
commissions. The 40%-plus hitters. These BIG affiliate program commissions
are the ones that will see your bank balance explode each and every
