Making One Hundred Dollars A Day As An Affiliate Marketer

This article is guest posted by Scott Riefler.

Maybe the idea of making one hundred dollars a day appeals to you if you’re nine to five it every day. Makes me think about all the people taking that morning train from Hoboken to New York for the daily grind and then back home again on the path. Does the idea of not having to work like a dog appeal do you?

I started internet marketing about ten years ago selling an eBook I bought online with resale rights. I would send out thousands of emails every night and watch my hit counter slowly move on my mini site. If I wanted more traffic, I would send out more emails until my ESP shut me down for spam mailing. These were leads I paid good money for but, these emails were considered spam.

Today, affiliate marketing has evolved. Now the tools of internet affiliate marketers are lead capture pages and Adsence. Marketers are using eBook affiliate programs to promote and not promoting Private label eBooks like before. Now many affiliate marketers may have hundreds of lead collection tools in place and thousand of webpage’s with several sites and domains cross connected to each other.

Many affiliate marketers are not selling their own content or products but using one of the many products available on digital affiliate warehouses. To become a member all you need to do to represent them is sign up with your tax, bank account or PayPal information. I personally use the same type of company to sell my eBooks that I have written. Some eBooks I sell however do a much better job of converting customers then my own site so I promote the best sellers equally to my own material.

Getting your account to produce one hundred dollars a day actually is very hard at first. I believe most people fail at affiliate marketing is because they try to focus on one product instead of going after the top ten best sellers. About eighty percent of my sales come from products that I am cross promoting. I am always amazed where some of the sales come from some forgotten classified or forum URL or some other posting in my countless affiliate promotion campaign.

The real key to becoming a good affiliate marketer is to keep doing what you’re doing until you get a result. If you’re doing affiliate marketing at nights and on weekends keep doing it to you get results. Once you get a result, lead capture or whatever it is you’re trying to do, keep doing it to get more.

Slowly, your list will grow and soon you will have a great report with you mailing list if you get them much needed content and make them look forward to your mailings. Once you have a few hundred people on your list you will start to see sales every few days from your mailings. If you’re able to grow your list to a few thousand people, you will be able to make a nice decent second income from list.

I recently made a special list for just my buyers where I give them all my best web pages, mini sites, lead capture pages, videos and other useful marketing information that they can use to become successful at working their own website or home internet business. With the right tools, desire and the right information you too came make a hundred dollars a day as an affiliate marketer.

    Making $100 a day would be tough to get started, but yeah, once you get started it’s pretty easy. A few months ago I started using a paid survey site. I got ranked front page for a very highly sought after keyword. I get 75-100 refs a day to the survey site now, making me about $20 a day. I don’t have to do anything to keep that number up, but I could improve upon it if I chose to.

    Interesting, I’d love that kind of disposable income but It never seems achievable. I can only drive a a hundred or so hits a day to my blog at the moment. Carl can we get started? I’l be on MSN later

    I have a good website but my affiliate sales are 0. I do not want to make my site cheesy and terrible like most sites in my niche. I would appreciate any comments.

    Personally I don’t see the reason to get 10% commission on bogus or low quality affiliate products when you can create your own product which you believe in and get 100% Especially in my niche.

    The paid survey is one thing I would like to promote but my country isn’t alllowed to promote it. I have a lot of limitations because my country (Peru) is not permitted to promote many things, even when I can, some companies send checks that get lost, so doing PPC to earn affiliate income is next to impossible because it would generate me some serious cash flow issues.

Better check for yourself.But BEWARE of the scam or fake internet abuser out there for other making money program.

    Affiliate marketing is way to go. Let other people create converting offer and all you have to do is just send traffic. No returns. No customer support. You can handle multiple site with ease and has great potential to make money. We found affiliate marketing is best way to make money without much investment. Review site works best.

    As someone who’s just started affiliate marketing, this has given the motivation to keep going. Coincidentally $100 per day is my initial target which I want to reach within six months. Do you think this is a reasonable time frame?

    What you say is so true.
    the first sale is tough how ever after you make the first sale all you need to do replica of what you did before over and over.

  9. says

    I was wary about entering the Affiliate Marketing field for some time, but then I saw people around me making money and I was really surprised and also at the same time jealous.

    Now I have a few options and I’m planning to take them.

    Great article some times is sad when the ESP shut you down even when you have a proven list. But there are more ways. About replicating thats what i do, when i make a sale i see what i did and replicate it, also i make “a copy” and try to make it even better.
