In 2015, I added a modest two-tier model to all of the programs we manage at Apogee. Twelve years ago, two-tier commissions were popular but in decline. I brought them back to Apogee-managed programs, and today, the default two-tier commission is a $2 flat payout when a referred application is approved. We’ve paid out 100 bonuses this year.
Has your affiliate program application been declined? I’ll explain why that happened and what you can do to appeal the decision.
This is a public service announcement for potential affiliates. Do your research before paying anyone to learn how to make money online. The truth is, with so many free resources to choose from, you shouldn’t have to pay anyone.
Affiliates complain regularly about shrinking affiliate commissions in their favorite programs across the industry. The trend is to lower payouts, reduce the tracking gap (cookie) and/or limit the number of products eligible for commissions. The ones speaking up are bloggers, datafeeders or SEO affiliates. They say brands aren’t listening to them and they don’t know how to reverse the trend.
