HAPPY NEW YEAR !
As promised when I did the snapshot of a months affiliate earnings by network here is the % breakdown for my sites for the full year 2009.
Non Network – 42% – A whole mix of things ( including some non travel stuff ). Bit of an eye opener it is such a high percentage. The downside with affiliate schemes that are run in house and not via a network is that you have to reach the payment freshold before you can start to cash out, also can mean more messing about with invoices but the upside can be that you earn more when the network isn’t taking a cut!
Commission Junction – 18% – Mostly thanks to TUI Travel Companies but a range of stuff including skyscanner which is small amounts each day but all adds up!.
Affiliate Future – 14% – Mostly thanks to the Sunshine affiliate scheme which is off to a blinder already for 2010.
Euroads – 11% – Mostly thanks to Cimber Sterling. This will probably be less important next year as they have cut their UK capacity a lot.
Affiliate Window – 6% – Diverse earnings. Nothing stands out.
Tradedoubler – 6% – Mostly thanks to First Choice which is now at CJ.
Adsense – 2% – Don’t do much of this as have tested versus earnings via affiliate schemes.
Amazon – 1% – Don’t do much of this but I wish travel sites could convert like this one !
