I’ve been pretty much promoting the same verticals and companies for many years, because I am familiar with them and happy with the returns. But once in a while I get a wakeup call about lost opportunities with affiliate programs I am not promoting.
Today I was reading posts on ABestWeb and I came across a thread by Andy Rodriguez of Andy Rodriguez Consulting that caught my eye: “Yesterday we paid out over $10,000 in affiliate commissions …”.
In this case, the ChecksUnlimited.com affiliate program had over $55,000 in gross sales and nearly $11,000 in commissions paid out in a single day.
I had wrongly assumed that custom checks were a diminishing business, largely because I’ve never gotten any, and also because my personal and business accounts both use online banking to pay bills.
But now I’ve got to take a closer look at this area.
