    Lightbulb Bonus Tiers in Affiliate Program - DO or DON'T
    Hi All,

    I have a question for affiliates.

    Does a program with automated monthly bonus incentive tiers (ex. reach $500and earn $100 bonus; reach $1000 and earn $200 bonus, etc.) incentivize you to promote a merchant's program over others? Or is it generally better to just run periodic (non-automated) spiffs and contests to keep affiliates motivated?

    Thanks in advance for your thoughts on this topic!

    Depending on the merchant, conversion rates, etc. If all things were equal between two merchants - would choose the one with the AUTOMATIC bonuses...

    One question I would ask myself, is would these affiliates generate that revenue regardless of the bonus? In other words, is the bonus really an incentive?
