  1. Hey Matt, great energy – first time listening. I am curious why would affiliates refer direct competition to compete for your business? A second tier commission is OK as an option, but thats a one time payment vs everyday competition for that customer. thx man

    1. Matt McWilliams says:

      Hey Cooper! Welcome 🙂

      Here’s an example of why…ultimately it’s math.

      Let’s say that I have 10,000 people on my list and you have 10,000 on yours.

      Let’s also say that 500 overlap (high but let’s roll with it)

      If I get 1% of my audience to buy Product A ($100) at a 40% commission and you do the same.

      If I sell 100 X 40 (40% of $100) I make $4,000

      You make the same.

      I also make 10% of your sales so another $1,000. $5,000 total.

      Let’s say I “lost” 3 sales to you though. Then I only “lose” $120 in commissions. Versus the $1,000 I made 2nd tier.

      Make sense?

      1. I do see where you are coming from, and thanks for the explanation! Catch up on the next one!
