I let my product 'Short Report Profits', lie stagnant for a while. Traffic dropped to about 20 uniques per day and I'd get about one sale every couple of days.
But my traffic now is over 200 per day, I'm getting many sales and subscribers every day and I expect it to all grow significantly.
This all happened because I bumped up affiliate commissions from 60% to 75%.
I've found it MUCH easier to get JV partners and affiliates to promote now due to the higher affiliate commissions and it all snowballs from there.
I contacted a few people the other day and I've had three or four big-ish marketers promote. Smaller affiliates must of seen their emails and are also now passively promoting through their blogs and their websites. This has boosted my ranking in the Clickbank marketplace. I went from Page 10 and I'm now on Page 5 in the Marketing > How To's category. This means more affiliates will find me in the marketplace, which will lead to me rising even more, leading to even more affiliates and so on.
I'm still rising. 2 hours ago I was ranked 50th, now I'm 44th.
Admittedly, I'm only getting $6 per sale with the new 75% commissions, but that's $6 I wouldn't of had otherwise. Plus, I'm getting subscribers and I have a good backend strategy in place.
So, if you have an affiliate programme, consider raising your affiliate's commissions.
Just take a look at the first page of the main categories at https://www.clickbank.com/marketplace.htm
You'll notice that nearly all of the top products are paying 75% commissions.
Something to think about
