What's the best commission percentage to offer on a $100-$200 product?

8 replies
I've created a 9 mp3 audio series plus workbook and two ebook package. I plan to sell it for $100-$200 (was thinking $147).

My question is: What's the best commission percentage that will attract affiliates on Clickbank? I was planning on doing about 25% (this would leave me $100 on each sale), but I'm concerned with all the people offering 50%+ commissions, I'll get lost in the shuffle.

Thoughts?

    I would do a minimum of 50% in order
    to get the most affiliates possible interested.

      I agree with Kenneth. If you want to attract the most affiliates giving them that much money for an affiliate sale will do it. They will bust their butts to make sales for you with that kind of a commission.

    I think it's a combination of factors that will make your offer attractive (or not) to affiliates with commission percentage being one of them. But conversion rate of your sales page and your price point are also important factors too.

    Overall, an affiliate would prefer to earn 50% commission on a $100 product rather than 95% commission on a $7 product all other things being equal. But, of course they are not. If the $7 product converts at 10% and the $100 product converts at 0.1%, the $7 product would obviously be a better bet.

    You should offer at least 50%. Affiliates can bring in alot of business - don't think of it as money you are losing by doing 50% instead of 25%, think of it as gaining a ton of cash that otherwise you wouldn't see without a team of affiliates selling your product

    60% and up. There are a LOT of courses out there that tell people not to even bother promoting something with less than 60% commission... and honestly, if you can more than double your sales through the affiliate network (which you should), you'll make it all back anyway.

    60% and up.
    Put yourself in the place of your prospect affiliates. What would you choose - 25% or 75%?
    The frirst may end up with only one affiliate (just for counting) and the second will bring you five. The math is simple: with the first you earn $110 and with the second - $183. And don't forget that all your affiliates will build your residual income - with little, if any, effort from your side.

    Excellent answers. OK, so if I go for, say 60%, then do I up my product price to earn more commission?

    My set is 9 45-minute audio sessions plus an 85-page workbook, plus 2 bonus ebooks.

    I thought $147 is very fair for this considering you often see one audio session and an ebook for $50. But I don't want to price myself out of sales. Then again, I don't want to go so low that I don't get "serious" purchasers. Any thoughts are appreciated.
