Do you make a living off of your affiliates?! - No I don't! - Here's the truth.
Monster Backlinks affiliate program is one of the best affiliate programs I've ever seen. Period.
I have more than 1,100 affiliates BUT people don't seem to realize the truth about this. Some people seems to believe that I can make a full time living off of my affiliates here on SC, and that's faaaaar from the truth. And that's the reason I brought you this topic.
Take a look at the screenshots below. This is the affiliate sales for the last couple of days.
As you can see, I make somewhere between $0,4 and $2,2 per day. It's more common to earn $0,2-$0,5 per day but I guess that my most recent thing I've been doing, have increased the activity a little bit.
So, with that being said.. - $0,5 per day.. That's not a full time income, right?
The thing is, that most of my affiliates are not active. Most of them have bought just a handful of services and spent $2 or $10 at the most.. And then, they stopped.
However, if, or and when, they decide to come back and purchase something again, I'll be here, waiting, and collecting 10% of the money they spend. - And that's why Monster Backlinks affiliate program is awesome.
So, what can I do then? - And what should I do?
I have affiliates but I want them to be active again.. - So I literally just sent them a message. Unfortunately, I had to do this manually, as there's no option to send all my affiliates a message.
Within that simple message, I just wrote something like:
I can see that you've signed up using my affiliate link and I just thought I'd ask you if there's something I can help you with?"
- And that simple message, actually gave me a tiny boost in affiliate earnings again.
Why? - I have no idea. I don't know the real reason behind it, but I guess that it could be anything of these..
- My affiliates forgot about SC.
- They didn't have enough money to afford services.
- They didn't know what to buy.
And sure, it could be any of these reasons, but it could be something entirely different too. At the end, it doesn't really matter.. As long as I get them to use SC again.
Here's the thing.
People are looking for affiliates. They need affiliates. They want affiliates.
They do whatever they can to bring new
affiliates.. But they forget about their existing
ones. - Don't do that.
