    Residual Income Affiliate Programs

    Learn how to separate the hype from the facts. There is no mystery as to why people are looking for residual income affiliate programs. The idea that you can develop a residual income stream that potentially lasts for years for work you did once is pretty exciting. The key is to learn the difference between reality and hype when it comes to making it happen.

    Making money is certainly a good thing. Making money with residual income affiliate programs is a very exciting thing. But, if you really want to be successful with residual income affiliate programs, make sure you understand the basics.

    First: Understand Residual Income

    Residual income is income that keeps coming in long after the initial work has been performed.

    Song writers are a great example. They write the song once. But they can be paid for many years if the song becomes a hit, gets picked up for commercials, movie sound tracks, etc…

    Rental property owners are another good example. They buy the rental property once. The rental income comes in month after month for many years when all goes well.

    Insurance sales reps earn residual income from their customers paying the monthly and annual premiums.

    App writers earn every time someone downloads or purchases from within their app. The work was done long ago in some cases, but the money keeps coming in as people download the app and make purchases.

    Book authors get paid from book sales long after the book is written.

    Of course, network marketers and affiliate marketers are able to earn recurring commissions through affiliate programs.

    What Is an Affiliate Program?

    An Affiliate program is a way for a company that manufactures a product or provides a service to generate sales through a team of independent Affiliates. These Affiliates have typically purchased the product or service, enjoy it, and are able to quickly and professionally refer other customers to the company. When they refer sales, the company pays a commission to the referring affiliate. These Affiliates are typically independent contractors. They set their own schedules and make their own decisions as to how the product or service is marketed (within the provider company guidelines).

    One good example of such a company is TrafficWave.net which provides email marketing autoresponders to businesses around the world. The concept is really very simple. We have customers around the world who use our email marketing autoresponders to generate new leads and follow up with those leads to generate more sales.

    Our customers include authors, entertainers, manufacturers, bloggers, actors, attorneys, restaurants, and affiliate marketers who all want to generate new prospects and close more sales. Since they also know other business owners and entrepreneurs, it just makes sense for them to be able to make a referral. When that referral begins using our service, we pay commissions to the Affiliate that referred the sale.

    We have Affiliates who have been using our service to build their business and earning referral commissions since April, 2000.

    Those Affiliates who build and train a team of Affiliates can build additional income by qualifying for increased monthly residual incomes and leadership bonuses.

    Market Saturation for TrafficWave?

    Recently, someone who was looking at working with us as an Affiliate asked, “Aren’t you concerned about market saturation?” I had to laugh. This particular individual had seen a few ads on some sites they were visiting and they made the all too common mistake of thinking that what they saw in front of them was their entire market.

    Here is an interesting fact: There are over 580 million (580,000,000) entrepreneurs worldwide according to Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM). In fact, according to GEM:

    “The 2017/18 Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) reports that entrepreneurship levels are stable or on the rise globally and that opportunity-driven entrepreneurship predominates. Fifty-four world economies participated in the 2017/18 GEM survey covering 68% of the world’s population and 86% of the world’s GDP.“

    Here is a very simple way to think about all this data:

    The number of potential customers you have available is over 580 million and that number is growing on a daily basis. If we, as a company were to capture 1% of the worldwide market, that gives us 5.8 million customers. We are nowhere near this number which means you have a LOT of opportunity as a TrafficWave Affiliate.

    market saturationNow, what do all of these entrepreneurs have in common?

    They need customers. To get customers, they need leads.

    That is where you find your opportunity. In your own community, in your city, county, and state, in your social media contacts, there are countless numbers of entrepreneurs and small businesses that can benefit by using TrafficWave to generate leads, improve follow up, and drive sales.

    We are so far from any sort of market saturation that it is safe to say that the market is wide open. This is the perfect time to reach out to other business owners and operators around you and show them how they can win by using these tools in their business.

    For even more income, offer your services to help them get their capture forms, letter templates and follow up messages set up. Maybe offer regular management, broadcast, and tracking services along with email marketing advice. You might be surprised to discover how many businesses in your area are just looking for someone to help them understand and implement the power of email marketing.

    As I talk to local businesses, I constantly hear some form of “Yeah, we really do need to use email marketing. We just don’t have the time to get in to it, learn all that stuff, and manage it. Can you do that for me?”. More and more, we are starting to take on the role of becoming an “email marketing manager” for local business clients.

    Bottom Line: Market saturation is a myth. Market opportunity is staring us all in the face. Let’s seize this moment and create wealth by helping businesses use these tools to generate leads and drive sales.

    Create an Elevator Pitch.

    Research has shown the average attention span of an adult is about six to eight seconds. This is all the time you have to grab someone’s attention.

    If you do grab their attention, you will have a little over a minute to really sell them on your product or service. Take the time to craft a killer elevator pitch. This will pay huge dividends in terms of creating business opportunities. You don’t want to get home and WISH you had said _________. Create that elevator pitch so when someone asks, “What do you do?” you can make the opportunity count.

    An example elevator pitch for TrafficWave would be:

    “I work with small and home based businesses to show them how to generate online leads, automate their followup, and drive more sales. Do you know anyone that could use my help?”

    Reach Out To Your Community

    Think locally. What’s going on around you in your community?

    Sponsor a Little League team or a charity walk/run in your neighborhood. Get to know your ideal customer and think about how and where they spend their time. Then seek out opportunities to get in front of your customer with your marketing message.


    Put together or find a group of synergistic non-competitive businesses in your area and agree to help each other cross-promote.

    You can use coupons, fliers, reciprocal website links, shared email marketing blasts, bundled promotions or social media platforms. By collaborating with each other, you could expand your customer base because you will be reaching new people.

    Ask For Referrals
