Hi, im not an affiliate but run a website, trying to expand with affiliates (mostly bloggers) and trying to gather some data on how the process works. I see bloggers have affiliate banners on their site but im wondering why you do this. Let's say you become an affiliate for me. Now you put my banner on your blog. Didnt you make more with adsense than you will with my banner? I cant compete with you getting payed $.50c-$2 for someone just clicking the adsense banner. So if i tell you we're selling a product for $100 and you get 60%........ thats $60 profit for you..... it may take more clicks to make a sale for my product then if you just run adsense and get your $60 in clicks which at $1 average click is obviously 60 clicks. When bloggers act as affiliates do they email their email list as well? Is that a big constant source of revenue as far as promoting an affiliate your representing? thank you, looking forward to responses.
