Keeping your topics tight can help you build a more focused audience. And it help you rank higher in search engines.

How much money can us make as an affiliate marketer?

According to a survey, 9% of publishers produced about $50,000 or more in affiliate income in 2016. Many merchants are making 5% to 20% of their annual revenue from affiliate marketing. There is a  link between experience and revenues.

Keep in mind though that these people have done an excellent job building their brand. It’s taken them years of hard work, dedication, and investment of time and money to reach this level.

We need to manage our expectations. We won’t earn the big bucks right off the bat, but don’t let this discourage us.

The success of others tells us that with hard work, time, and the right knowledge, we too can  reach those levels
