2 Tier Affiliates- Your Secret Affiliate Marketing Weapon

Jul 26, 2008
There are two ways you can make money as an affiliate marketer. You can sell products yourself and earn commissions, or you can recruit affiliates and earn commissions off of their sales.

In this article, let's talk about how you can recruit affiliates into two tier affiliate programs and earn a very nice income on their sales.

If you are familiar with compensation plans in network marketing you understand the value of duplication. Network marketing has always allowed distributors to build a down line of people underneath them and earn money on their efforts.

Many groups allow you to go several levels deep and get paid whenever they purchased or sold a product. With affiliate marketing the programs are either single tier or two tier programs.

A 2 tier program means that you can recruit affiliates directly on your first level and earn money every time they make a sale. You will not earn any money on the sales of products by affiliates that they recruit. Therefore it is worth it to spend your time personally recruiting as well as retailing affiliate products.

Two tier affiliate programs work great for Internet marketers who like to network with other affiliates. You can work together and be compensated for spending your time teaching them how to build an affiliate marketing business of their own.

Because there is such a high attrition rate with affiliate marketing, you will still find that the number of affiliates you recruit versus those that actually makes sales will be very low.

However, the good news is that over a period of time, you can develop a very strong group of front line affiliate marketers to work with. You are able to influence that by the effort that you put in to teaching people to duplicate your affiliate marketing skills.

It will also force you to become a better affiliate marketer and keep up to date on what is going on in the marketplace using this business model. Of course the benefit of this is even if you did not have front line distributors you yourself will make more personal sales.

Once you have developed a solid core of two tier affiliates this will allow you to go to them anytime you come across a product that is worthwhile and instantly began to have sales off it by your group.

This is why we call two tier affiliate marketing your secret weapon. You just have to be willing to put in the effort to build your affiliate marketing business anyway you can.
