Everyone will agree that once you have found a niche that is converting (regardless if you are making a profit or loss) it’s time to take the campaign to the next step and either turn it from a loss to a profit each day or increase your ROI if you are currently making a profit.
Not many new affiliates realise how much leverage you have when you are doing a good amount of volume, if you have read posts in the past I’ve always been a big believer that you should build a good relationship with your affiliate managers. This post will show you one of the many benefits they can offer you – however to get the best result from this tip you do have to be performing well or have proven than you can produce good amounts of volume in other offers etc, you can’t just rely on a good relationship with your affiliate manager.
Are you ready to find out how to boost your revenue each day without any extra work? Ask for a bump in the payout! Imagine if you got a bump of $2 per lead on your offer and you are currently averaging 20 leads per day. That’s an extra $40 a day in revenue which will allow you to tune your bids higher on the keywords that are converting to get into prime positions. Play around with lower/raising your bids to see which performs the best, quite a few people I speak with just accept the street price for a payout.
What the worst that can happen if you ask? They say that they can’t really bump the payout because X, you haven’t lost anything and more times than not they will say if you can increase your performance by X leads a day on that offer we will be able to negotiate a better payout .
Having that goal in mind will help you push yourself, once you reach it you will be rewarded significantly. The numbers can be astonishing when you put it into perspective, here’s an example:
Let’s say you have a campaign running which pays out $30 per lead, you’re making 5 leads a day on a constant basis and you’re affiliate manager says push for 10 leads a day and we can raise the payout to $33 per lead. You scale by any means (adding keywords, tuning bids, improved landing page CTR, etc) and finally reach that 10 leads a day and get granted the bump of $3/lead. You’ve just gone from making $150/day (~$4,500 a month) to $330/day (almost $10,000 a month) with 1 campaign.
Rinse and repeat in different niches and you can see how the super affiliates get to where they are .
