Everytime someone encounters affiliate marketing for the first time, they wonder to themselves, “How much could I earn from this?” Today, you’re going to find out that the initial answer which you come up with will probably not be the right answer at all.
When it comes to affiliate marketing, the question at hand is really the amount of sales that you’re able to make. Most affiliate products pay out about $20 per sale, and so if you can make 25 sales per week, you’re going to be making about 100 sales per month, which is $2,000 or thereabouts. Generally speaking, this is what many people figure initially.
While 100 sale per month sounds like a reasonable estimate, the truth is that there are many ways that you can make more, with less sales. Sure, the commission for an eBook may be something small like $20 for a $30 product, but what about a $100 product. That $100 product might pay out $70 in commission, so imagine what a $1,000 product might pay…
All said and done, there are no hard and fast rules for any of this.
Another situation worth considering is residual income. If you’re able to make 100 sales per month, and each of those sales pays you $20 per month, that means that you’re setting yourself up for a $2,000 per month income even if you stop right after the first month. If you don’t stop, well, that means that you could make another 100 sales in the next month, which sets you up for a $4,000 per month income.
As you should now quite easily see, the potential earnings that you stand to make via affiliate marketing can vary greatly, and it all depends on the type of product you choose, as well as how well you’re able to market it.
So, how much do you think you could be earning from affiliate marketing?
