If you are an affiliate or are thinking of becoming an affiliate in an affiliate program you probably have seen some statistics like these in affiliate sign-up information:
"Low traffic sites can earn $500 - $1,000 per month, medium traffic sites can earn $1,000 to $2,000 per month and high traffic sites can earn $3,000 + per month."
Wow!! Sounds pretty good.
>From one affiliate program it seems you could be making over $3,000 a month just because you're a high traffic site.
Are you a high, medium or low traffic site? Who knows, different people have different views about what is high or low traffic.
You probably figure you are a medium traffic site or a low traffic site at absolute worst.
So just by joining this fantastic affiliate program you'll be earning at least $500 a month and more likely somewhere between $1,000 and $2,000 a month.
Gee, if you find another couple of affiliate programs like this you'll be banking in excess of $100,000 a year. Yippee!!
Man, lets go for it. Lets sign up NOW!
But what they did not tell you (and it's not really their obligation to tell you either) is that these statistics only apply to affiliates that are marketing their affiliate programs every day.
