An Example of a Successful Affiliate Program

The best affiliate program I have experienced is the 5 Pillar Affiliate Program from Ken Envoy.

It’s been hailed as “the best affiliate program on the Net.”

By becoming a 5 Pillar Affiliate, you will:

* Earn $75 commission for each Site Build It! (“SBI!”) subscription.
* Get paid annual commission on each and every SBI! renewal with their lifetime customer policy.
* Even earn commissions from 2 tiers of income through sales made by your own team of affiliates.

Site Build It! is software that not only enables anyone to build a professional web site but it also drives traffic to it with marketing tools that are integrated within the software.

Over half of Site Build It! owners purchase more than one SBI! (some over 10!). Since the customer is yours for a lifetime, you earn commissions on those multiple sales. And, of course, on their renewals, too!

So your 5 Pillar earnings really add up, fast.

The beauty of marketing affiliate products is that you create multiple passive incomes streams that become hands free once they are set up.

  5. Affiliate Marketing is one of the ways that bloggers earn money blogging. Although the amount of cash a blogger will produce with affiliate marketing differs, lots of individuals discover affiliate marketing a most profitable enterprise. How much cash brought in is dependent upon certain ingredients as the measure of traffic a blog receives, along with the specific affiliate marketing deal. Affiliates give a link to another company’s site and are generally paid for a certain act, based on the deal. The basis for compensation could be a sale, a click, or perhaps signing up for an item by giving their name and e-mail address.
