Affiliate Programs, Benefits Of Two Tier VS One Tier?
How to Use Two Tier Affiliate Programs to Your Advantage
To those who are not familiar with affiliate marketing, “two-tier” could be a new term to you but for those who are already involved in this kind of money-making experience; it usually means a larger and more passive stream of income.
Two-tier is an enticing feature of particular affiliate programs wherein affiliates are allowed to sign-up additional affiliates below them. Whenever the sub-affiliates otherwise known as second tier affiliates earn commissions, the affiliate above receives a commission too.
In two-tier system, the first tier of commission is just like in the usual affiliate program. The sole difference is that it has an additional tier/s or sub-affiliates, whereby marketers also gain a commission once the people that the additional tiers referred to the program generate sales.
If you want to use a two-tier affiliate program to your advantage and generate more income by encouraging sub-affiliates to sign-up below you, make sure that you carefully choose the affiliate merchant you are promoting.
Pick those merchants who generate a stable stream of high quality products, give high or just commissions, offer real time tracking, furnish you with a proven and tested advertising arsenal and a proven track record of treating their affiliates well.
It is also advisable if you engage yourself with a web merchant that has a user-friendly website which you can access anytime so that you can monitor your statistics including visits and sales.
And when possible, choose the one with powerful marketing tools which you can use in promoting their products for your own sales and your second tiers affiliates.
You’re just wasting much of your time and effort and worse, damaging your integrity when you promote poor affiliate programs because your visitors will surely presume that the product or service you are reselling must be low quality also.
That’s a big reason why it is important to pick first-rate affiliate programs.
Through these, you can not only build up a good relationship with your visitor, but also, you can easily get more second tier affiliates to sign-up under you.
Let’s recap and look at some of the benefits from two-tier affiliate programs:
First, your profit will increase due to increased sales from the customers that your second tier has referred.
Second, you will have a much broader customer base to which you can sell your products and services due to your second tier affiliates.
Third, you gain a more stable income because the customers referred by you and your sub-affiliates will probably develop a lifetime loyalty to your site and your product offerings.
Fourth, you have an army of sub-affiliates who will promote and resell your products and services to their visitors and subscribers.
Two-tier affiliate programs have been proven winners and should be the number one choice for budding affiliates. When you start gaining profits from your site as well as your two tier affiliates sales, your passive income streams increase exponentially.
