  3. Hi Shahzad,

    I have doubts about providing coupon codes from big affiliates because the affiliate system will track the sale based on coupon codes, all the commission will go to the big affiliate leaving you nothing. The scenario is even worse with GoDaddy. The company itself provides coupon codes and if any customer you convinced to buy when uses the coupon code, you are deprived off from your commission.

    The secret of success in affiliate marketing is to get the customers who don’t have the service yet. And it really requires some great method.

      That’s true Suresh…
      Recently I promoted Godaddy hosting and as a referral I got about $2.7 as affiliate commission!!

      But it is also true that it is so easier to promote Godaddy than promoting HostGator or blue host because Godaddy always come up with greater discounts which clients are interested in.

      Really appreciate the comment!

    I have noticed that a good way of earning money by affiliate marketing is creating a tutorial on how to use the product. Matthew Woodward makes lots of money on his blog by creating a tutorial on how to use the products that he promotes.

Let's talk...
