However, to have a SMOOTH RIDE as an affiliate marketer, there must be a reasonable amount of subscribers on your list as you promote to them. It narrows down to the adage; 'the money is in the list'
To get more commissions, it means you need more subscribers as on the average basis, a subscriber earns you at least a dollar per month. This in essence tells you that if you have 500 subscribers, then you have the chance of earning at least $500 per month and same goes for a thousand subscribers and even more.
What gives you these subscribers? If not the traffic directed to your landing page where your potential subscribers opt in.
