I just summarized my sales for July and YES I do see the power of recurring affiliate commission.
Last year I started to promote a product, software, with recurring affiliate commission. If the customer sticks with the software they get billed every 3 months, which means I get paid commission every 3 months from that same customer. Awesome I know :-).
Let me give you an idea how this grows.
January 23 sales
April 34 sales
July 45 sales
In July I had 17 recurring sales, the rest were new sales.
If I can keep the momentum going I will have 56 sales by October and 67 sales by January 2011.
Now there were sales in Feb, March… I just wanted to give you an idea of the recurring commission, what it can look like every 3 months.
Now where do you find the recurring affiliate commission programs?
I would search google to see if there are any programs in your niche.
Say you are looking to promote dog training. Then I would search for “dog training recurring commission”. Maybe there is a membership site for dog owners…
Just searched that and there is a couple of membership sites for dog owners.
A site that you can check out as well is www.lifetimecommissions.com. I have not used any program from there but it might give you an idea.
I am not saying that recurring commission is the only way to go. But if there is a product that fits in with your niche, why not.
Because I work from home I today got to see my 6 year old color Ben 10 papers. 🙂
Best of luck to you!
