Below, we give you five report highlights. If you find any of this useful, be sure to check out the complete AffiliateBenchmarks reports.

ONE: Commission amount is the most important factor for affiliates in determining whether or not they will promote a merchant.

Supporting data from U.S. affiliates: The most important items to consider when deciding to join an affiliate program are…

  1. Commission amount (43%)
  2. Product being sold and price (33%)
  3. Relevancy of advertiser and product (34%)

Takeaway: While this comes as no surprise, payout is the most effective factor in attracting new affiliates. Commission should be competitive; merchants should also consider rewarding individual affiliates based upon their performance.

TWO: Nearly half of all surveyed affiliates rely on affiliate network newsletters to alert them of newly launched programs. Read More
