First $4000 Commission Month With Affiliate Marketing

Last Update: June 27, 2017

I have been an affiliate marketer for 4 years and this month I finally made it past the $4000 commission mark for the first time! Last year I was hovering around $1000, then $2000. At the start of this year, I had a couple of months that went up to about $3000 in commissions. Anyone else remember how breaking through a milestone like this felt? Did you continue to get more and more commissions? Did you plateau or keep increasing ?

I can tell you it feels GOOD! I think my eureka moment has been promoting higher commission products. Working harder on ranking my site etc.

Good luck people!

Thanks, Russell

I can't congratulate you enough Russell as many people, including myself, have yet to reach such a milestone and I understand it takes hard work to accomplish. If you don't mind telling us, how did you go about your strategies to accomplish such a feat?
Hi - sure no problem. I have 2 stock trading review websites that I sell affiliate products. The products are stock trading courses. I write reviews of the courses, perform simple SEO optimization of the posts and articles (using yoast SEO plugin for free on wordpress, very easy to use). I drive traffic from social media and stock trading forums and people buy some of the products that I advertise. I have about 500 visitors per day between the two sites. The choice of affiliate program has been key - I chose one that they perform great email marketing on the leads that I send them (so pretty good conversions) and I get good commissions ($120 - $1000) per sale. I started an offline business that freed up my time to work on building the targeted traffic to the sites. Hope this helps! I have tried a lot of different affiliate programs that made me some money (like amazon etc) but just can't get the traffic to make decent money!
