Affiliates were asked a series of demographic questions for the 2011 Affiliate Summit AffStat Report.
The age ranges were well distributed, and I fall into the 36-45 group, which is the largest with 25%.
When it comes to married vs. single affiliates, the married folks account for 58%.
I’ve always been a married affiliate – got married in 1996 and became an affiliate in 1997.
The majority of affiliates have kids, too, with 61% saying they’re parents.
I wonder how many affiliates are trying to teach the craft to their kids. I’ve been working on it with my oldest (so far).
Most affiliates work from home, too, with 72% always working from home, and 20% more sometimes working from home.
My first 7 years as an affiliate were while I worked for others, but I’ve been solely at home since 1994.
And finally, there is the Mac vs. PC battle, and the PC wins a resounding victory. Cue the Mac users insisting their beloved machines are the best thing ever.
I love my PC’s, and yes, I got a Mac years ago to try it out. That “one you go Mac, you never go back” is not true.
Over fourteen-hundred affiliates were surveyed on their methods, preferences, and strategies for the 2011 Affiliate Summit AffStat Report.
