Super Affiliate

A “super affiliate” is an affiliate that earns a large amount of money through affiliate marketing. There's no standard answer when asking what a super affiliate must make or earn to be considered. Generally, a super affiliate earns at least 5 figures (USD) of income per month from affiliate marketing, and their websites receive millions of page views per month. Super affiliates probably account for less than 2% of all affiliates, but drive 80+% of all affiliate transactions, making them extremely sought by affiliate managers. Most super affiliates drive so much traffic that they're also able to negotiate their own preferential payout rates with their program partners.
