    I have been marketing these on my blog since I started it and it seems like they have times when the sales are good and happen often and other where it will go several weeks or longer with no sales.

    Do web hosting affiliate sales have lots of slow periods with sales or is it me?

    Web hosting affiliate programs are very lucrative ways to make money online. Since this segment have a lot of competition so you have to adapt new techniques to promote your link. It will help you to make some good sales.

    I make good money from web hosting affiliate marketing but I do see times where it slows way down. It was consistent for quite some time but more recently it kind of gets inconsistent at time.

    Overall I do well considering the low effort that I put into it.

    If you have a good following on social media or a good targeted email list then you should do quite nicely by marketing web hosting offers.

    Do you promote your offers on social media, email or just on your blog?

    I keep seeing things that say it can be kind of here and there for making sales. would an email list work real good for these kind of offers or is something else better?

    It's going to depend on the email list. If you have a good targeted email list then you might do well and i your email list is not for a niche that would find interest in web hosting offers then it probably won't do well at all.

    There are other means that can work well if done properly. Things like social media marketing to your site with information or reviews on the web hosts can often do well if you have a good following.

    It all depends on what is available to you and the time and effort that you are willing to put into it.

    I don't really have an email list for that I think. I also need to grow my followers on my social media accounts I think. I better get to work I think. :Computer:

    Yes, that's a very good idea. Those are two ways that are really good for marketing web hosting offers.

    I just added domainking affiliate link to my blogs.I hope it will yield the kind of fruits I'm reading about affiliate hosting here.

    would have loved to add other hosting affiliate to my arsenal. But it unfortunate that my country is excluded from most countries.

    I have been considering getting into affiliate marketing also. Still, I am focusing on building a good amount of articles and attracting traffic to my website first then I will think about associating my content with some niche related product.

    I was doing them last year when I started marketing and I noticed that the sales kind of happened here and there so I stopped dealing with them for the time.

    I think it also matters what niche you are in and if you are putting advertisements on your blog then the blog should perhaps be in a niche that has the target people who buy those services.

    I only make a little money from web hosting affiliate sales. Some times it is better and some times worse. Yes there are slow periods and that is part of the reason why we should not count on just 1 kind of affiliate products to market.

    I know but the good and bad times just vary so much. I think the higher commissions are what was in my eyes instead of how steady something was.

    Lots of people do that mate. I am also guilty of looking at commission amounts mostly some times.

    I used to make good money long ago but now it isn't doing a lot of sales. I think that because there is so much competition it's hurting it for everyone who is a web hosting affiliate.

    Yes I agree on that. If you look on most websites there is many ads for web hosting service and probably because some pay real good.

    I have even seen and been working with some that pay you more in commissions than they made for the whole sale. I guess they are really banking on people staying with them long term.

    I saw that too but I think it is because they have such a high profit margin and people will stay with the same host for a long time so they will make their money back and then some.

    I read something somewhere that said that most people will stay with the same web host for 2-3 years on average so I think that they just consider the first year a loss to get the customer and the following year or years are mostly profit.

    Yes, I am earning with this kind of program. It is just very easy and I am happy doing it. I will just share the link on facebook and twitter and then I will have many invites. They will usually sign up and then I will have my commission. It is so easy to do. I am encouraging people to be like me for extra income.

    I can believe that and that is probably a big reason why the hosting affiliate programs pay real good commissions for their sales. They also have real high renewal rates for their web hosting at most hosts so that is a part I think too.
