Affiliate Summit is one of the most anticipated events of the year for Internet marketers, and 2013’s event was definitely one for the record books. With hundreds of affiliates, advertisers, publishers, and networks in attendance, TheMail was fortunate to meet and interview people from all walks of the industry.

The online dating industry is arguably one of the hottest and most successful niches in the digital marketing landscape, and sites like FriendFinder.com continue to prove that. This year at Affiliate Summit East, we caught up with Heather Vandeven from FriendFinder to find out what kind of offers affiliates can promote, and what the payouts are—you may be shocked to find out just how much money you can make from these offers.
“A lot of people come up to us wondering who we are, and we say ‘we’re FriendFinder,'” Heather candidly explained. “Maybe you know us as one of the top 200 websites in the world…and I say, ‘Are you working with an affiliate network,’ and they usually say yes, and I say, ‘Did you know you can work directly with companies like ours and promote us directly? You don’t have to go through a network, and you can actually make more money doing that.'”
When we asked Heather just how much money affiliates could make promoting FriendFinder, she proudly stated, “It varies depending on how many members you send a day, but right now it’s about $60 to $130 per member.” As we both agreed, that’s a lot of money per person, and FriendFinder is always looking for new affiliates to promote their sites.
