The 2nd Way Of Increasing Your Affiliate Income

Affiliate Marketing Ok this is the 2nd  of 3 ways you can increase as well as create a huge passive affiliate income.

The secret to earning a long term income online is what is called “Residual Income” or “Passive Income”

You’ve probably heard this term if you’ve been presented with a business opportunity from a network marketer (MLM).

Simply put it is selling something once and being paid for it over and over again, month after month, year after year.

This is how MLM’ers make their long term money and that’s how you as an affiliate marketer will be making your long term money.

But before we get into how you’re going to earn a residual income, let’s first look at what most affiliates are doing that’s NOT making them money.

I want to show you what separates the average affiliate from the super affiliate.

Typically, the average Affiliate Marketer heads off to Click Bank or Commission Junction and searches for products or services that they want to promote.

They look for products that offer high commissions, 50% or better. Heck, if you’re going to do this you might as well make as much money as possible right?

Ok, moving on…

Now that you’ve found the products and services you want to promote, you’re off to the races and you start marketing these affiliates.

When you make a sale, you make a commission. However, you only make the one commission for that one sale. You have to start the process all over again.

One sale and one earned commission.

One sale and one earned commission.

One sale and one earned commission.

Sounds like a lot of work to do over and over and over.

It takes the same amount of time and energy to make only one sale and one commission why not take a page for all those MLM’ers and start making a residual income as an affiliate marketer?

There are thousands of Affiliate Programs that have residual income opportunities.

And these opportunities are through membership sites.

Just like the gym membership that requires the member to pay monthly dues. So do these affiliate programs that represent membership sites.

Promote any affiliate program that requires a monthly fee and you are on your way to earning residual income. As long as that person is a member of that particular membership, you are paid.

For example, you’ll find recurring commissions through…

–       Dating sites

–       Online gyms

–       Personal trainers

–       Internet Marketing

–       Business in a box

–       Self Improvement

–       Cooking

–       Advertising

–       And so on….

None of your marketing efforts or advertising strategies changes when promoting membership sites, the only thing that will change is your income.

Let’s look at some basic math and let’s start getting YOUR residual income flowing.

I’ll be the average affiliate marketer and you will be the Super Affiliate.

ME: I’m promoting a product that sells for $27, and I get a 50% commission for each sale $13.50. And in my first month I make 100 sales, so I have earned $1350.00.

YOU: You’re selling a product that has the same price tag of $27, you get the same commission for each sale $13.50, you sell just as many in the first month as I do (100) and you make the same amount of money $1350.00.

So far no big deal, were making the same money all is well and we are both decide to start looking at that new car. Mines a ZR1 corvette, what’s yours?

Now month two rolls around and here’s where the difference is. And I mean a BIG TIME difference.

ME: Let’s say I am a good marketer and I sell another 100 items. This means I make another $1350.00 in my second month. Not bad most people would jump at making that kind of money online.

However, here is what separates you from me.

YOU: You’re a good marketer too and you also sell another 100 items and make another $1350.00 in your second month. Not bad good on you (golf clap).


Don’t forget about the first 100 people you sold last month. You also get paid from those sales, which means, you have another $1350.00 coming to you.

Plus the $1350.00 you made this month, you have made a total of $2700.00 for your second month.

Let’s keep with this sales theme where we both make 100 sales per month.

I will keep earning ONLY $1350.00 per month.

However the smarty-pants you are. You’ll be ADDING $1350.00 to your monthly income.

Month three your income is now $4050

Month four your income is now $5400

Month five your income is now $6750

Month six your income is now $8100

Are you staring to get the picture?

Because I’m not promoting affiliate programs with recurring commissions, I only made $1350.00 in my second month, and $1350.00 in my third, and $1350.00 in my fourth and so on and so on.

Because I’m an average affiliate marketer my income does not increase each month. Now with that said obviously I can increase my income each month. All I need to do is sell more or promote more then one product or service.

Nevertheless, I have to do this over and over again just to maintain my monthly income of $1350.00 or to better it.  But you will ALWAYS have a head start each month, because your income is recurring.

Now the example I gave was us living in a perfect world where everyone that is paying for their monthly membership dues will continue to do so month after month.

Well this is not true, people drop out of programs everyday. Therefore, the chances are those first 100 people you were paid on in the first month will probably be less in the second month.


Even if half of them do not continue with their membership dues, that’s still 50 people giving you an addition $675 head start on month number two. Where in month two I’m starting at zero, I have no head start.

No matter what math you use, promoting affiliate programs with recurring commission are the absolute best and most profitable programs to promote.

Have a very merry Christmas and I will send you the final method for increasing your affiliate income on the 26th.

Ho Ho Ho!!

I believe in you!
