Recurring Commission is the Key to Profits

Affiliate marketing can be seriously hard work. Anyone who has slaved away for months creating content and building links, to see a single solitary clickbank sale trickle in as sole reward for their efforts will know this is the truth.

Finding new customers can be tough which is why I always try and find something to promote which provides ongoing value rather than a one off sale. This can mean a variety of things, for instance Amazon sales although fairly poor levels of commission – do offer the bonuses of income from additional purposes. However the main area I try and focus on is selling subscription based goods and services.

If you receive commission on a recurring basis, that one sale could potentially be repeated for years to come which means that it can justify a lot more effort into achieving that sale. Over the last few years most of the professional online marketing tools have moved to a subscription based model, most of these have affiliate schemes which you can join quite easily. If there are restrictions on joining, just be a little creative perhaps spoof your IP like this if needed.

It makes a huge difference in your potential earnings and it’s sales like these which form a truly passive income. If you take a few weeks off, and your previous customers keep subscribing then you’ll keep getting paid. Slowly focussing on recurring commissions will give you opportunities for just chasing single payments and make your business more secure.

There are lots of areas which have payment models like this, as mentioned many of the top internet marketing tools are now subscription based but the list doesn’t end there. In the entertainment market, you’ll find that most of the online casino and bingo games offer lifetime payments. This means that you’ll receive ongoing commission whenever your customer spends money on that site. This is why the casino niche is so heavily competitive – the rewards can be extremely high for a high ranking gambling site with good affiliate links.
