I’ve just concluded the data collection for the AffStat 2005 Report, and I was anxious to compare some of the figures from two years ago to here and now.
One of the questions I am asked most often by affiliate managers is the average salary (including bonuses) for an affiliate manager. While pay scales for affiliate managers vary depending on geographic location, these averages can help get an idea about the ranges out there.
Compared against 2002, the earnings in 2004 were a bit more erratic. There were more folks at both the higher and lower ends this year. However, the numbers for 2002 and 2004 pretty much mirrored one another for the percent of affiliate managers that earn between $80k and $110k per year.
For the near 25% of affiliate managers that are making $40k or less, it’s time to ask the boss for a raise. 😉
