HOW ADVERTISERS GET AFFILIATES
If a product owner wants to join an affiliate network they pay a flat rate of something around $5,000 admission, which is used as a sort of deposit.The networks credit this deposit towards their percentage cut, which means that the network will not be taking any more commission until they work through this deposit.
Once in the network, the advertisers use a variety of tactics to lure affiliate markets, like payouts or high-end product give-aways to the top affiliates. Sometimes even Lamborghinis or BMWs. Whatever it takes to attract the attention of the skilled affiliates who are already finding success elsewhere. This is why successful affiliates are competitive in the online marketing.
