In this edition of the Affiliate Buzz podcast, James and Arlene Martell explain how it’s possible to develop a passive income stream that could earn you 15-35% lifetime recurring commissions for the rest of your life.
Recurring commissions are when an affiliate earns a commission for the initial sale, and then additional commissions for each new billing. The recurring commission could stop after a certain amount of time or go on for the lifetime of the referral’s interaction with the program.
Bloggers, podcasters, and content marketers use affiliate programs offering recurring commissions to get paid repeatedly for one-time referrals. Wouldn’t you like to do the same? Don’t you deserve to get paid what you’re worth?
Standing on the Shoulders of Titans
The episode kicks off with a discussion of one of Arlene’s favorite podcasts, Shoulders of Titans where host Dan Lok interviews some of the most successful entrepreneurs of our time. The entrepreneurs include people such as:
- Dr. Gene Landram, founder of Chuck E. Cheese
- Sylvie Silver, a professional female wrestler
- Jairek Robbins, son of Tony Robbins
- and a lot of other high-end people who are in the business of wealth.
You can find the websites for the aforementioned entrepreneurs in the list of resources at the end of bottom of this page.
Arlene says there’s something different in every episode. Dan starts at the beginning, asking them how they got started in their business, and then segues into the raw information.
Then Arlene points out that in addition to getting his guests’ thoughts on various concepts, Dan also touches on motivational topics as well. James enjoys how in these interviews Dan isn’t scared to ask the questions everyone else thinks.
Each week Arlene works closely with Dan, who records the interview and sends her the MP3. Then she outlines it for her Virtual Producer who edits the show and adds additional audio details. The result is a beautifully produced MP3 which is also transcribed and available on the website.
James adds that the interviews not only talk about the people being interviewed, but also about things in life itself. Visit http://www.shouldersoftitans.com to hear recent podcasts and subscribe so you’re sure to be notified about future ones.
Programs that Pay 15 - 35% Recurring Commissions
After a short break, James and Arlene return to discuss some of the more lucrative programs offering recurring commissions. Arlene has thoroughly researched this information and put together a list which includes programs such as:
- AWeber pays 30% recurring commission for referrals to its email management program.
- OnSpot Social, an iPad app for email collection & on-location marketing, pays 20% recurring commission for the life of the customer.
- Hootsuite is a social media dashboard which offers 15% recurring commission over a 12-month period.
- TAPNET offers 25% recurring commission for referrals to its online backup service.
- SocialOomph is a social media toolset which pays a 40% recurring commission.
If you’d like to get the entire list of programs offering 15 - 35% recurring commission, then head over to the Podcasting Mastery website: (http://www.podcastingmastery.com/)
James recognizes that affiliates cover various genres. He suggests doing a Google search for programs with recurring commissions for the topics you cover if the ones above don’t fit with yours. It’s worth it to get recurring checks in the mail versus a one-time payout.
