I was curious, what the median would be for an affiliate marketers salary... what do some of you make (if you dont mind).
I just got hired as Director of Internet Marketing for a new company and am very pleased. I finally get to leave the crap job I have now paying 18 an hour

I went to your site on the salary wizard pages and I noticed the banner ad just below the navigation bar "News Sports Money Entertainment Channels Interact Search ? Shopping" is screwing it up. The drop down links goes behind the banner ad below it thus rendering it it useless. Just thought I'd let you know.One day parasites and their ilk will be made illegal, I bet a few Lawyers will be pissed off when the day comes.
Mr. Spitzer is fetching it nearer

What Weisinator said.
Your use of the word "salary" indicates that you are referring to a position of empl*yment by a particular company.
Affiliates are NOT (except in really oddball instances which are a gross perversion of the trade) "employed." We are INDEPENDENT businesspeople. We join affiliate programs, not as employees who can be bossed around, but as independent contractors with only a limited framework (the "Terms of Service" aka the "TOS") of rules. This is strikingly different from empl*yment, which usually has a straitjacket of nitpicky, petty rules for every little thing--rather than the affiliate's normally loose contractual framework which can pretty much be summed up as "keep it legal--and don't sully our trademarks!") !
Incomes of Affiliates can range from under $10/mo all the way to over $100,000/mo. I wouldn't attempt to guess an average.
Affiliate Managers (aka AMs), on the other hand, generally ARE employed. They are employed to oversee the affiliate programs of specific companies. Duties include getting more affiliates to sign up, making sure creatives are there and working, spotting fraud, and PR related to the affiliate program--and other related stuff too numerous to type in.
There are independent AMs, too, but they have lots of employee-like junk to put up with like having to meet performance goals, dealing with yo-yo owners who keep shooting themselves in the foot and then blaming the AM, and other distasteful j*bbish aspects.
I've read that $50k, $60k+ (per client) is in the ballpark for AMs, but I'm sure that varies a lot by company. A little affiliate program with 50 active affiliates is not very likely to be able to pay the same thing as a huge, established program that has 5,000 active affiliates...There is no knowledge that is not power. ~Hemingway

Leader is right on in my experience - then also there is a great deal of regional variation as well.
Shawn Collins has a salary survey available, but from what I have seen the salaries seem to be overly inflated to me.
Also, really few "pure" affiliate managers left on the merchant side - most folks who do have responsibility for these programs are also seeing some aspect of analytics, reporting, seo, busdev...and the list goes on.
Then of course you have differing compensation schema - anyplace I have worked since my CDnow days has been a set salary. Personally, I would not advocate a bonus or commission structure for a merchant-based affiliate manager.Best,

I beg to differ!
50 affiliates is all you need to drive targeted traffic that CONVERTS and a "reasonable" % for the AM can reach BIG BUCKS
