Hi There

I think the answer to this question varies from site to site, ebusiness to ebusiness. There are a lot of factors involved, including how much traffic one gets and how well they present affiliate products.

I can tell you this: A well-trafficked site that has very desirable content, who focuses on and caters to visitor needs/wants is going to fare much better than a slap-it-up-quick site that is only out for affiliate sales.

A good way to learn how to create an excellent environment for affiliate sales to study the Affiliate Masters Course, which is a free download that can be easily Googled.

It all depend on the niche that you are in, the type of products that you are selling and the amount of effort that you put in.
There is no specific answer to this question.

Personally I am more used to adsense but I have made some sales with Clickbank though. But I did not make a lot of effort to develop the business further.

it is very dependent on the niche. I am confused at how you are asking the question are you talking about creating an affiliate program for your business and how many sales that is generating? or are you saying how much do you make by being an affiliate of someone else

either way it all depends on the niche....want to be a great affiliate? market a popular product

Most affiliate marketers won't share their earnings publicly. Besides, one person's success promoting certain types of products, doesn't mean that another person will have the same success.

There are too many variables to pinpoint how much someone will earn while promoting any particular program or product. I will say that you should pick a niche and affiliate product that you feel good about.

Also depends on if you're asking as a merchant or an affiliate

I have to agree with what Kevin says. One can earn a living on either "side" - or both. I started marketing, as an affiliate back in 2000 and recently, last November, jumped into the merchant side. My daughter and I wanted to see if we could create an affiliate-centric program and treat affiliates as we liked to be treated on the aff side. So far it's working - not enough to "quit the day job" - but our affiliate base is growing and sales have been steadily going up.

Some people say there is a lot of luck involved. So I'll add to mktgbiz's statement with this adage: The harder I work the luckier I seem to be.

I've been doing affiliate marketing since 1998 and you can make money with it.

I have mall sites and niche sites and I do better with the niche sites than I do with the malls.
