What Affiliate Marketing Commissions Rate Are Good?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

So, you have decided to break into the world of affiliate marketing and become an affiliate marketing associate. Welcome to the world of marketing! But you probably want to know what is considered a good rate for affiliate marketing commissions. After all, you are in this for the money, right?

When it comes to figuring out how much the business merchants give their associates in affiliate marketing commissions, it depends on what they have calculated that they can afford to give plus make money themselves.

What is the average rate of affiliate marketing commissions?

Different sellers offer different affiliate marketing commissions even for the same products. Some may pay as high as around 50 percent, but the average is probably closer to 15 to 25 percent when you take into account the different networks and the exposure they get their merchants. The more reach a merchant has the higher they'll pay their affiliates as they can shift more units of their product. The higher rates may be due to the fact some sellers want to motivate their affiliates, but since that also may mean they are asking a huge price for their products, you could actually make more if you sign up for a seller giving 15 or 20 percent since they will perhaps sell more products and you would make more in volume. It’s something you have to decide for yourself.

Private Offers Make More Money For Affiliate Marketers

The biggest affiliate marketing commissions go to the ones that are private offers. These are special rates that only a few affiliates are given because the seller knows that they already have buyers lined up ready to go to sell the product. That way they both are likely in advance to make more money and the seller knows this when they sign up the affiliate.

Second Tier Affiliate Marketing Commissions

Another type of affiliate marketing commissions is the second tier ones. As an affiliate marketer you have the potential to make money on two tiers of payments. The ones considered second tier are the ones made by the affiliate that you hire. This way, you get profits from their sales, as well as the sales that you make.

This means that you can be an affiliate for a specific merchant and at the same time hire your own affiliates to sell that product. That means you are getting profits from both types of sites, the one you make for the seller and the ones you let others make to sell it for you. It’s like being a manager for the product and it helps you to make even more money through affiliate marketing commissions.
