Why Promote Software Applications And Software Services?
Affiliate programs reportedly generate 15%–30% of all sales for software merchants and as much as 23% of the merchant’s revenue comes via software affiliate marketing, on par with SEO and PPC marketing.
Furthermore, there are numerous specialist affiliate networks primarily focusing on various kinds of software: from business-to-consumer (B2C) to business-to-business (B2B) software, and from downloadable software to software-as-a-service (SaaS) basis. The demand for physical as well as virtual software is unlikely to wane anytime soon since modern advancement is handicapped without the proper software.
While most affiliate marketers earn up to $20,000 yearly, experienced software affiliate marketers can earn six-figure incomes from software affiliate programs. Software affiliate marketing is a relatively young vertical but unlike popular verticals such as fashion or health, software affiliate programs are yet to be saturated and therefore provide ample opportunities for new affiliate marketers looking to gain a foothold in the industry.
