Some websites produce a little amount of revenue from affiliate programs, but others will make a full time living or even produce impressive amounts of money, It all depends on the amount of traffic you can generate , what affiliate programs you select and how you are promoting them on your site.
Very True! Having run many affiliate programs over the years, I’ve learned that careful selection of affiliates is key to the success. Not only does the 80/20 rule apply in regard to the results that you can obtain from affiliates, but, in fact, often the reverse is true in regard to the amount of management and monitoring that is needed. Often the poorest performing affiliates require the most time and effort. So my advise is to carefully develop a strategy and target affiliates that can help drive your business based on the synergy you can provide each other, manage them carefully, and build a business relationship with them. Don’t be fooled by the expectation that you can add hundreds of affiliates and get meaningful results from more than a handful. -Ed
