Bandwidth factor of affiliate programs|
From Tim on 16 April '01
An affiliate program sounds good: you pay someone else 15%
for selling your product. You still make a profit of 85%.
But the average banner is a bit more than 10k and 1000 banners
equals 1 GB. Hosting companies usually charge $3 per GB data
transfer. Add to this the cost of the server, software, staff
etc. and 1000 banners will cost a company $5
You need a great product to make at least $5 per 1000 ad
impressions. Am I correct or am I missing something?
