What can top affiliates earn with Checks Unlimited?

We get asked many times by affiliates that are enrolled in the Checks Unlimited program what do the top affiliates generate and what they earn. While we will never reveal the name, websites or any identifiying information from our affiliates, we will share some numbers. We have found that in many cases, affiliates that have asked and are given the stats, often start getting active, add additional links, start using our datafeed and actually climb the charts and start earning much more revenue after they know it is actually possible to earn that kind of money with our program.

We have found that many times the reason they haven’t produced in the past is due to the fact that they have told us “we had no clue” of the volume of the market or the earning possibilities. Many people (including myself) before I started working with the check vertical, really had no idea what this channel could deliver in terms of volume, revenue and commissions. This is the main reason for this post, it’s an effort to show affiliates that may not be giving this program it’s full attention and may be leaving money on the table by not fully promoting Checks Unlimited on their websites. For those of you already earning the thousands of dollars, month after month on our program, this information may not be earth shattering news as you and your bank account already know.

The proof is in the reporting

Here is the August sales report from ShareASale. Sensitive information has been removed to protect the identity of the top 10 affiliates in the program. There are a few key points I wanted to point out on this report.

1) The top 2 sites are popular coupon sites. They are not the most popular or the highest ranked coupon sites according to Google, but they do have traffic. I say this becuase if you have a high traffic coupon site and if you place our links on your home page, there is no reason why you shouldn’t achieve similar results. Of course there are lots of variables but looking at the potential, shouldn’t you at least give it a shot and have us featured on your home page?

2) We convert. Let me say that again, we convert very well. Look at the conversions from our top 10 affiliates. Tell me, honestly, what merchant do you have on your site that converts as well than Checks Unlimited? Checks Unlimited spends a ton of money in off line and print marketing, The brand has become a houselhold name, that helps drive the incredible conversions on the program. I invite you to experience the conversions for yourself on your website. If you don’t have us front and center on the home page so your site visitors can see us, you are not fully capitalizing on our branding and probably not earning all that you can be with our program.

Some affiliate secrets you may not know …

1) Top earning affiliates tend to work with and promote the top merchants on most of the affiliate networks, they know the top merchants are doing things right and if they are top merchants on the network, there are lots of affiliates making money with them. Checks Unlimited has been ShareASale’s #1 merchant on their Top 100 PowerRank program for over 5 years now.  As an affiliate, shouldn’t you be working with and promoting the top ShareaSale merchant program on the network?

2) Top earning affiliates will not only look at the commision that the merchant is paying but at the convversions. If a merchant doesn’t convert, they can pay you 50% commission but your traffic will earn you more revenue on a lower commission merchant if that merchant converts at a higher rate. The check space has been getting very crowded lately, while many “merchants” have built check websites overnight, they can’t buy the name, branding or customer loyalty associated with thousands of satisfied customers since Checks Unlimited entered the space in 1986. Take advantage of the ongoing off line and direct mail branding and use that to your advantage by making sure you have links loaded on your high traffic pages on your website.

3) Top earning affiliates know that September is the beginning of our “high season” for check sales. Check sales start ramping up now, peak in Novemeber and December and start to level off in February. Our top affiliates know this and now you do as well. There is no better time than the present to start focusing on Checks Unlimited and getting your links loaded in the right places.

    That’s a pretty powerful slide to bring home the point.

  2. Andy "AffiliateDoctor" Rodriguez September 1, 2011 at 3:36 pm

    Brian, 95% of the affiliates we speak to about the program have no idea of the earning potential … thanks for your comment : -)

  3. Career Girl September 2, 2011 at 12:41 pm

    Wow!!!!!! My jaw literally dropped when I saw these numbers. I had absolutely no idea, anyone could make that much money per month in this vertical. If you had asked me to guess… it would have been closer to $1k/month max for top performers. You’ve got the gears in my head turning Andy. Thanks for that!!!

  4. Andy "AffiliateDoctor" Rodriguez September 2, 2011 at 1:46 pm

    and you have the perfect site to rock this program, sign up, load a few links and tell me how I can get you on the fast track … have an awesome weekend ..

  5. Lisa September 13, 2011 at 10:37 am

    wow…… 16K+ in a month….. That’s very motivating….. How can I achieve that!!!!!!

  6. Andy "AffiliateDoctor" Rodriguez September 13, 2011 at 11:59 am

    Lisa,

    You have a great domain for our check products. I am willing to bet that some searches for our check products come up with your site in the mix. I would suggest for starters to drop in a banner or link on your homepage directly without having users have to search for the keyword. I know its not your “site” design or model however you may be surprised at the results with a 30 day trial. Feel free to drop me a line anytime …

  7. Anthony September 13, 2011 at 12:05 pm

    Wow! I like others had no idea that this segment could produce such good numbers. It’s time I spent more time promoting the program. My site is new, so I also need to work on getting the traffic.

  8. Andy "AffiliateDoctor" Rodriguez September 13, 2011 at 12:12 pm

    Anthony, drop in a 234×60 in the mix, add us to your store list on the right hand and add one of our coupons. Feel free to email me for a list of keywords and top selling sku’s. Our data feed is also loaded to ShareaSale and it’s loaded with stuff. You can drop me an email or contact me anytime for any inforamtion or help you may need. This is the season sales are ramping up ..

  9. Andi September 13, 2011 at 1:51 pm

    Wow!! I would like your help. Can you please give me some professional input? The only coupons I see are:
    Order 4 Boxes of Checks
    4th box is free Offer code GW45 and

    GEt 20% off checks when you order 4 boxes.
    Offer Code HY7V

    Sincerely,

    Andrea,

    I’ll send you an email but one word comes to mind … “dilution” : -)

  11. Anthony September 13, 2011 at 3:56 pm

    Andy,
    Thanks for the ideas. I already added a product showcase (store list on the right side of my site). It’s a Goldencan showcase. What do you think of them?

  12. Reviewsweek September 13, 2011 at 9:08 pm

    Awesome inspiration for a new affiliate. I’ll try my best. Thanks

  13. Andy "AffiliateDoctor" Rodriguez September 14, 2011 at 7:59 am

    Anthony, GoldenCAN is a wonderful choice to set up a quick and effective storefront. The creator of GoldenCAN is a very good personal friend of mine and a master developer that is always improving his service. Good choice ..

    Thanks for the stats. They’re very encouraging. We just became a Checks Unlimited affiliate and I have to say, the ads give our site an added sense of credibility and legitimacy. We’re as straight and honorable as they come. But with so many political ads and baldness cures, it’s nice to have ads for a product that everybody needs and uses. We hope to see commissions like the ones detailed some day. One question I’m curious about. I see the ‘click to sale’ ratio. But what would you say a good ratio is for ‘view to click’. I know that depends very much on the location of the ads and the subject of the content. But I’d love to know what to expect. Thanks again for a great program.

    Hi Mark,

    Checked out your site, very refreshing .. have bookmarked it for further reading and watching when i have some free time. The creatives generally work best when they are placed “above the fold” so the user doesn’t need to scroll .. another good techinique is to add text links throughout the site. If you have a website with traffic, the CTR and EPC should be very good, we are a recognized, houselhold brand and consumers will click and shop with trust.

    Checks Unlimited also has a product line that may work very well with your site demographics, it’s a line of Secure Identity Products: http://andyrodriguez.com/help-prevent-electronic-pickpocketing-with-securemyid-wallets-and-accessories-from-checks-unlimited/

    Thank you for your support and be sure to check out a few of our other merchants, http://andyrodriguez.com/limon-whitaker-and-morgan/ and http://www.shareasale.com/shareasale.cfm?merchantID=33730

    Have a wonderful day !

    Many affiliate programs offer data feeds. Unfortunately, no one ever explains to coding challenged people like me what to do with them. I would love to use them, but don’t know how to convert them for my database or how to call them in my webpages. A tutorial for dummies would be great.

  17. […] September 1st, I wrote a post and documented what our top affiliates earned in August, you can read the post here, many of you commented and the buzz has intensified. Many new affiliates have joined and others have […]
