Thread: How much to set affiliate commissions

    Smile How much to set affiliate commissions

    Hi All,

    I have created a product that will be for sale at Clickbank soon. I am wondering what percentage to offer affiliates. I currently have it set at 50%

    When I promote affiliate products I look for ones that have 50% commission.

    Since this forum is full of affiliate marketers I just thought I would ask what you all look for when finding a product to promote.

    Is there anything else you would suggest to me to help attract affiliates?

    Hi Terrie,

    Generally the affiliate percentage on clickbank is 50% sometimes 75%. I don't really look at the percentage when it comes to clickbank products, it's more about whether the product is good and if I can confidently promote it to my audience. I buy the clickbank products I want to promote and then I know.

    The only other thing I would suggest is that some people offer great banners and affiliate extras for their affiliates. I think this is a great incentive and makes your product and affiliate program stand out. I'm not sure how they do this, I think there might be a plugin or something they use with clickbank to redirect affiliates to their sign up where all the extras are.

    Good luck with it

    Hi Jedha,

    Thanks for your reply.

    I just read an article about attracting affiliates that said the same thing. It said to provide banners and even pre-written e-mails that affiliates can use.

    Guess I have to learn how to make banners now!

    You could definitely include additional items in an affiliate package. Make their job easier and you'll get more and more.

    Hi Advant,

    Yes, I agree. So I created a page yesterday for the affiliates. I looked at some other affiliate pages to get ideas, plus what I already knew from my own experience. I think I did OK. Time will tell. The product is available now in the Clickbank marketplace. So, I'll see how it goes.

    You can find it by entering in the search bar (in Clickbank marketplace) '3 Steps to Banish Your Blocks to Success'. If you have the time and want to look at it I would appreciate all suggestions.

    Terrie -- If you don't mind a little self promotion, I have developed a plugin that will build a good looking easy-to-use affiliate tools page. You can see what it does at Clickbank is one of the default programs that we set up. It saves me a lot of time.

    Thank you Christine! It looks like a great tool!

    Unfortunately, right now I am on a shoestring budget. But I have bookmarked you page for future use!
