At Izeafest I got a lot of affiliate questions. Lots of them were in the reference of me as a “super affiliate”. I have never really thought of myself as a super affiliate and have blogged about this many times.
I kind of fell into affiliate marketing simply because I had a ton of traffic to some very niche websites and out of the blue an affiliate manager called me one day and talked me into trying it… then that created a monster.
I posed the question on twitter… How do you define a super affiliate:
@shoemoney a super affiliate is: one that can successfully create an income stream using affiliate marketing AND blog about it 🙂
@shoemoney a super affiliate is one I want to have because it has the potential to generate a lot more success than other affiliate programs
@shoemoney Affs who make enough to have ‘Fuck You Money’. So far I only have ‘No Thank You’ money, but I’ll keep trying.
@shoemoney One who made millions from affiliate marketing and have influence and authority over the industry.
@shoemoney back in the "old days" there weren’t blogs and there was a code of honor so to speak… But the old days are gone… Long gone.
@shoemoney back in the "old days" a super aff meant anyone netting more than 10k a month from aff efforts
@shoemoney A super affiliate? Someone who can make alot of money through affiliate marketing in the most creative ways.
@shoemoney I would consider $100,000 net a month to be a Super Affiliate, but I have no idea if there’s a standard definition or not.
@shoemoney super affiliate = someone who has the clout to cut a preferred percentage deal with the merchant or affiliate network.
@shoemoney Super Affiliate = dominates ROI regardless of category, product, technology, etc. Sets the trends and path for everyone else.
Some pretty interesting answers. So how do you define a super affiliate?
