How To Create Passive Affiliate Income

Yesterday, I answered the question on whether you should create your own product or be an affiliate or other people’s products. Today, I want to show you how to maximize the income you make from affiliate marketing.

When looking for affiliate products to promote, I give a lot of weight to programs that offer passive income. One of the best way to produce passive income is with continuity affiliate programs. Most of the time, these are membership sites where the people pay every month to be a part of the program. To get new customers, many continuity programs offer affiliate programs that pays a “headhunting fee” for new customers. Some continuity programs will give you a cut of the billings. These are the programs I’m interested in.

Listed below are my three most profitable continuity programs. Combined, these three programs generate over $10,000 a month in passive income. Imagine that for second. I don’t have to do anything, and I still make money. That is how you live the Dot Com Lifestyle. You can’t get things much better than that!

Aweber Referral Program

Aweber is my recommend email solution. I’ve been using them for years, and they are by far the best in the business. They also offer a really great affiliate continuity program. If you refer a new customer to Aweber, they will give you 30% of the customer’s bill for as long as the customer remains with Aweber.

Aweber offers a $1 trial, so your first commission is only 30 cents. However, I love receiving those “You just earned $0.30 from Aweber” emails.


The reason I love them is because next month, the commission goes to $5.70, and it will keep going up as the customer list gets bigger. The biggest customer I referred to Aweber, his list has gotten so big, his monthly bill is over $3,500. And I get 30% of that! Find out more about the Aweber affiliate program here.

LeadPages Affiliate Program

LeadPages is another SAAS (Software As A Service) that offer a recurring commission program. Like Aweber, LeadPages will give you 30% of the customers’ bill for life. Unlike Aweber, LeadPages requires you to subscribe to their $67 per month Pro service plan before you can promote them as an affiliate.

I have been promoting LeadPages since November 2013. In that time, I have referred 800 customers to them.


LeadPages offer two service plans: a $37 per month Standard plan and $67 per month Pro plan. The commission is 30% for life. I’ll let you work out how much 800 customers a month is worth. Because their pricing is higher, I expect LeadPages to eventually overtake Aweber. It took me almost a year to hit $1,000 a month in passive income with Aweber. With LeadPages, I did it in three months.

MTTB Inner Circle

My Top Tier Business is a 21-step system to make your first $1,000, $3,000, and $5,000 online. They also have one of the best affiliate continuity programs in the business. At 50% recurring commission, it’s also the highest paying.

The program is call the Inner Circle, and membership prices start at $19 a month and goes all the way up to $299 a month. You make 50% for the life of the membership. Like LeadPages, you have to be part of the Inner Circle yourself in order to earn money from it. My results with the MTTB Inner Circle has been pretty amazing. Inner Circle launched on January 2014. This is my earnings from the first eight days.


Sure, it’s great to make a $1,000, $3,000, and $5,000 one-time commissions, but I’ll take guaranteed monthly income over a one-time commission any day of the week! Apply for My Top Tier Business here.
