My Goals with this Blog...

Are to document my experiences with various income streams and programs in my quest to becoming a full time freelancer working from home. I plan to list my current 'eggs' and to post the things that have and haven't worked for me.

Meanwhile with my affiliates...

So people may be wondering about that Affiliate program I’m tooling around with. Well, I’m glad to say I’m doing fine. I’ve played around with the Second tier style referrals mostly as it was the easier one; I send people over from my link to try out things and I gain off them. Easy peasy.

But I’ve also started to toy with the other two programs. There’s one that allows me to choose between three differing commission types so that if I’m using one and find it not really doing again I can try the other three instead. The options of getting paid per new registration (CPA), per deposit (CPD), or for each trade placed (CPV), are the three plans. I kind of liked this flexibility to choose what type of package and may do more with it in the future.

There’s also a hybrid style of affiliate sales where you can do a combination of your base number of new registrations mixed in with an ongoing revenue share. This allows one to get paid for each referral but still earn money from that referral when they trade. This option sounded great but I found I did the worst with it. So in the end I’m still favoring second tier, but that second option is very tempting.
