A Tale of Two Affiliate Business Models

There are many business models one can choose to do affiliate marketing. On Monday, October 3, I’ll be comparing two different affiliate business models.

The first affiliate business model is the one most people will be familiar with. I call it Hit and Run affiliate marketing. It’s promoted by all the get rich quick gurus because it sounds so simple and easy to do:

  • Find an affiliate offer to promote
  • Send traffic to the offer using PPC/PPV/other paid traffic

The web is full of stories of “super affiliates” making $10K or more per day by doing the above. What they don’t tell you is that many are spending more than $10K a day buying traffic and very few get over to the black side, where they are making more than they spend.

There are many other things wrong with the above business model, yet this is the model that is promoted the most. During my Oct. 3 presentation, I’ll be showing a much better affiliate business model. It’ll be a business model that is far more profitable than the Hit and Run model. The meetup is limited to 70 people, and the cost is only $5. At the time of this post, there were only 15 seats left. Go reserve your seat now.

    Hi John!! I am Samuel from Hong Kong. Thanks for sharing. It’s true for newie blogger like me or someone who had been paid hundred or thousand of dollars to those “get rich quick” gurus in order to buy some useless and rubbish products or softwares. They are lier. In my point of view, if you want to succeed, you have to pay more effort. The more you do, the more you can get.

    1. Yes $5 is quite a good price but bit low when you compare the credibility of John.

      1. Party Ideas says:

        $5 is fine sound & Zik is it develops and continuously upgrades content and services to attract and retain the patronage of this group. ?

  2. Enstine Muki says:

    The only reason I can’t pay the $5 right now is that I will not be able to be there. John, maybe you put this in some format so that we get after the meeting?

    1. Quite good suggestion John … Bring this one in other format as well like as ebook

  3. Dealbulous says:

    Yes Johnnny, can’t wait to see you. Its cool, really 🙂

    thanks for this post, organic traffic is free and ppc can cost a lot thats the difference

    1. Organic traffic is not free you need to invest time and for us time is money my friend.

      1. Yes, time is money. Beacuse, we can save money by doing these jobs by ourself.

        1. Dealbulous says:

          depending of the amount of organic traffic you want, and the SE ranking you desire. If you choose the right domain name, good hosting, quality content etc etc. you may not spend much time on working hard for organic traffic

  5. Nice to see that you are announcing your coming posts.

    We will be prepare to read it as soon as it will be on air.

  6. Yes it is the Affiliate Dunia, All we are running after it. Somebody know the tricks and gain success.

    1. ‘Dunia’ that is Hindi word … 😉

      1. yes.. it’s means world. (i am not an indian).

  7. Hi, I’m not able to make it, not because of the $5. Will you be putting this into some other form for us that just aren’t able to attend?

  8. I am not able to make it (wish I could) but as Enstine said, would be great if you could put in some form of format, video maybe? That I would buy for $5, even $10 🙂

  9. Party Ideas says:

    Yeah $5 is absolutely a good price…

  10. Party Ideas says:

    Well bundle of thanks John about that information of business models…

  11. Dealbulous says:

    actually after hearing all the opinions here, i don’t mind to spend $10 to buy the video too 😛

  12. Buy Website says:

    I figured out this “Hit and Run” thing a couple of years back when I actually saw Clickbank affilates promoting products through Adwords. I learnt that these affiliates are actually paying Adwords to make money through affiliate commissions.

  13. fas says:

    So they do break even, right?

  14. I’ve found it really hard to do affiliate stuff over the last few months, never really made anything. Thanks for the ideas.


  15. IMAC says:

    Interesing… 🙂

  16. Which ever you choose as long as you attain the ultimate goal which is to make money! 🙂

  17. If found that the best way to convert an affiliate offer is to first try the product or service out, write a personal review about it, then start sending traffic to your review page.

  21. richardting says:

    John chow, really hope can study more from you and eager to make my own website successful. Really thank you for such kind of knowledge!

  22. Desks says:

    I liked name ‘Hit and Run’. 🙂

    I have always wondered how much money needs to be spent to monetize bought traffic and make it profitable business.

    I use organic traffic for my affiliate business. I am curious what is other better way. I hope there will be separate post for the same.

    Thanks !

  23. strange that people are spending x dollar to earn y dollar where y is lesser than x!
    it is all about making easy money. common mass still feels that by just writing a post or by clicking 10 links in a day, they can earn 100 dollars! innocent people.

  24. affiliate marketing is the best method to earn but choosing the right one is important
