Making money on the web with Two -Tier affiliate marketing programs
 
I wrote a post on my free affiliate training site today and said -- Itís probably true to say that when most people think about making money on the web, they generally think of affiliate marketing of some sort, but many overlook, or donít know about, the tremendous advantages of 2-Tier affiliate marketing programs.

Then, when I finished it and read it, I wondered if it's a fact that few people know about about 2-Tier affiliate marketing programs of if it's just my perception of the situation.

So, where better to find out than here!

How many of you know about multi tier affiliate marketing (not MLM) programs and the advantages of them?

How about letting me know.

I have a couple of two tier systems that I work with. I think the two tier system is sometimes easier to do because the MLM's expect you to buy the product all the time and be in their 'group'. While 2-tier systems do this as well, they're not as pushy about it.

I LOVE looking at that second tier and seeing money that I otherwise would not have made :)

Most of the affiliate programs I'm associated with are single tier, but I have had a couple of two-tier programs over the years. They weren't all that successful for me, but I also didn't do a lot of marketing to recruit other affiliates. The few affiliates that did sign under me never did anything with them.

I would think that to be most successful with a two-tiered you would have to do some coaching with new affiliates. Or recruit the right people who didn't need coaching. :)

I've found you're correct in both statements. But, even though it's important to try and target your recruiting to find self motivated people in practice you do have to point your team at the training the vendor/program owner provides and also provide access to yourself for personal coaching. I do both and also have a free training site of my own that my team find useful.

Two Tier Programs
 
I have worked with a few two tier programs, but have not really gotten into "recruiting" people.

I enjoy recurring payment programs alot better :)

Well that's were you got it wrong :-) I was in hospital on one occasion doing my best to avoid dying and received 15 commissions that week I was in. On another occasion I went cruising with my wee granddaughter and her parents up into the Arctic Circle for two months - and my income still keep rolling in.

The bulk of it from my second tier affiliates because, obviously, I was doing no promoting.

Are you sure you really understand two tier affiliate programs?

I must admit I'm surprised how many of my students don't have a clue about them when they first come to me.

Exactly what the recurring payment will do for you :) or if you build websites and list them organically. They will also bring you income for a long time to come without you doing a thing if you are willing to put in the job in the first place.

Here's the problem. Building websites and getting high visibility in the search engines (so that you get decent traffic) takes time - maybe 3 months, often more, often a lot more. My free training website (in the compeditive 'Make Money' niche) took about six months to rank high. And I'm pretty good at SEO!

BTW, there is no such thing as a ongoing profitable website 'without you doing a thing ...'. They all require ongoing activity and social engagement or the rankings drop over time and you end with a dead horse financially.

Contrast that with what many my students in 2-tier affiliate programs are achieving when they're making decent money in their first month.

Recurring payment will pay you as long as the customer stay... so that is a pretty good way to make money.

If you rank sites in the "make money" niche sure it will take a long time with that competition. Rank sites in other niches and it will go much quicker.

BTW, I have numerous sites I have not touched for years and they still make money. Google for sure want you to be active on your sites, but there are other ways to drive traffic than using Google...

I am not trying to say that your program does not work, I wouldn`t know cause I have not tried it, this all started with me saying I prefer recurring payment... and I still do cause it pays my bills :)

You keep referring to 'recurring payment' as being a great way to make money - and as you will see in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6ovTdwklaA, I agree, but we seem to be sliding off the topic I started this thread about.

The question I asked is : How many of you know about multi tier affiliate marketing (not MLM) programs and the advantages of them?
