One advantage of affiliate program is that you earn even when your site is not active,unlike AdSense which always need high traffic for one to make good money.Affiliate is also the best for niche blogs.This is the reason why successful bloggers opt for affiliate marketing over AdSense.In AdSense, you will make over Ksh 100,000 if your blog attracts more than 500,000 visitors but when it comes to affiliate marketing, even 1,000 visitors can generate Ksh100,000.
One disadvantage of affiliate marketing is that you must make a sale for you to earn, there is no shortcut. Lazy or average bloggers always prefer AdSense over affiliate marketing because it doesn’t require one to make any sale. AdSense pays on Cost Per Click and Cost Per 1000 visitors.
With a busy blog, an affiliate marketer can earn upwards of Ksh100,000 per month.
