    Hi,

    We (#1 "seo" in Google au) giving 10% life time referral commissions. I saw other companies giving 20% (25% of margin).
    Is it realistic to expect affiliates to be interested in lower commissions, but bets value from money service (and lower entry point) of their clients?

    Thank you for your opinions

    10% is pretty low really. You have to look at it this way...

    Affiliates can make or break your business, treat them well and they will send you clients/sales :)

    I don't think anyone would really get serious if affiliate commissions are below 30%, so its very realistic.

    If you have the budget you should also look into media buying.
    Also the higher the affiliate commision the more affiliates you will get.
