Residual Incomes Streams – Fact or Fiction?

Women in blue pointing at you as money falls from the skyAre you one of the folks that need to make some residual income to assist in easing monetary problems that you could be under due to this recession, and maybe in the process you want to collect some real wealth? Here is a quick test on affiliate marketing. Let’s see how you do.

Here are two affiliate marketing methods, you choose which one is better. Let’s see if you can pick which one will be more moneymaking?

In one selling scenario it takes 100 clicks to make a sale. The commission received once that sale is formed is $100. The standard refund rate for the product is 5%. If you pay 80 cents per click what’s going to be the return on your initial $100 investment (did we mention there had been mathematics involved?).

In the second promoting eventuality it in a similar way takes 100 clicks to make a sale. Every sale offers $100 commission but also gives an once a month residual commission of $10. As above, there’s 5% refund rate and the average length of the subscription is four months. Now, if you pay $.80 per click just like in the first example, how much will you make now for your $100 investment?

So that suggests you made $20 but you should take off five percent for the refunds, leaving you with $19 net profit. 19% is a rather good ROI. In the second example you may still receive $19 in commissions for that preliminary sale, but you also receive $40 for those four monthly sales. So if you add the $19 to the $40 then you have $59 which becomes a 59% investment return a much more fascinating result!

Residual Income That Small Additional Goes a Great Distance

You can always tell an excellent affiliate’s marketing model the only time they are going to offer something similar to in the first example above, they are going to find a technique to leverage that sale. Most of them will offer a free report, a bonus, or some kind of review simply as a strategy of obtaining your opt in information they give price for worth and that’s where the leverage comes in.

A concentrated opt-in list may be worth up to five bucks a month to the list owner. The secret is to supply an up sell later on which naturally gives the chance to earn another commission.

What you can learn from this exercise is if an affiliate marketing product does have an ongoing chance to earn extra income, you need to go for it. Doesn’t that make sense? It’s the difference between an awesome 59% ROI or a much less electrifying 19%.

The Secret to Wealth is Multiple Streams of Residual Income

What you don’t see when you look down from your space is that the Nile is what it is because it’s fed by thousands of small tributaries. Thousands of them. This large river only exists because of all the little tributaries and streams that run into it.

Look at your affiliate marketing efforts in the same way, by making multiple streams of income; you are making a river of wealth. You must start by promoting a bunch of different products that have the benefit of creating           reoccurring streams of income. Stick to those and nothing else.

Imagine beginning every month off with a growing amount in the bank without doing a thing! Isn’t this the ideal eventuality?

No more considering how much your income will be and whether you will be in a position to pay all the bills as residual income will soon build up to be more than enough to cover the bills before you even start on any other income-producing projects.  Now that’s a business you’d work forever!
