    Most of the publishers and bloggers lack patience. They try to promote a product, after some 20-30 clicks the affiliate links, they gets nothing, they start comparing affiliate business with PPC. Calculation comes out to  be 30 * $.30 = $9, gosh I lost $9 today !!!
       Wait a minute, on an average 1 sale is made out of every 40 clicks and average income per sale is about $32. You were some clicks away from making a sale. Even that 30 cent figure is somewhat high, actually most of the bloggers gets a CPC  of 10 to 20 cents. Calculation is far easy 

    In case of PPC

    • Clicks = 40
    • CPC = 30 cents
    • Total revenue = $12

    In case of Affiliate

    • Clicks = 40
    • Sale = 1
    •  Total Revenue = $32

    So you are earning $20 more that is 166% more than PPC.

    Try to target readers from developed countries like US, UK etc. As online purchasing pattern is quite different in developing countries. Due to ineffective piracy laws, people tries to get pirated products.

    7 ) Try another affiliate programs
