So, the checks are coming in regularly and you're quite happy with what you are making on that particular offer… so it's on to the next project.
Not so fast!
You may be flushing commission potential down the proverbial drain and not even know it!
Did you know that some companies have multiple affiliate program offers with different payout rates, but that those offers aren't necessarily available all in one place?
For example, the CPA network eAdvertising.com, sent this announcement about an offer for Relationships.com…
A Christian Dating site that helps to ‘Bring Christian Singles Together.' Very modern and relevant for today's dating campaigns, and is not overtly religious. Pays $3.50 on EVERY profile signup.
Under Program Payout Scale you'll see:
You will earn 55% of the first-time sale for any of your visitors who sign up as a paying member.*
If you refer other webmasters to our affiliate program, you will earn 10% of the commissions they make.
However, nowhere on the affiliate signup page does it mention a CPA offer of $3.50 per profile signup.
Which offer is better?
Well, that depends on your traffic. If you have LOTS of traffic to send, I'd recommend the CPA offer. On the other hand, if you have a mailing list of loyal subscribers who might be interested in purchasing one of the services that MingleMatch offers, I'd recommend the percentage payout program.
The point is to look for different offers.
If you receive a notice from a CPA network about an interesting offer for a particular company, check the company's website and see what they offer through their in-house program.
Do your homework to maximize your affiliate income.
