Experts believe the below is the most common stat for the average-performing affiliate marketing websites:
Click-Through-Rates: 60% of Monthly traffic
This means only about 60% of the traffic clicks on an affiliate link to go to the sponsors’ website.
Conversion-Rate: 20% of Click-Through-Rates
This means only about 20% of the traffic sent to the sponsor’s website actually makes a purchase (some even get less than 10%).
With the above stat, a site receiving 10,000 monthly traffic would only have about 12-20% of this traffic converting to sales and generating revenue. What happens to the remaining 80-88%?
Usually, there are two main reasons the remaining 80-88% do not make a purchase.
- Some visitors search Google out of curiosity about a product they love. And from SERP, visit an affiliate marketing website where they read up the interesting review and comparison posts and end up not clicking over to the seller’s website.
- Some read and get really interested in the product, then click over to the seller’s website but get discouraged by the product price. They probably do not have £500 to spend on the product at that moment.
As these visitors do not have enough budget to purchase the product, a chance to win the same product would easily be welcomed. Now, this is where vTIMEout comes in. Our services and affiliate program were created to monetize this 80-88% unmonetized traffic.
What we do and why you should be interested in our affiliate program
At vTIMEout, we offer visitors a chance to win awesome prizes by participating in our skill-based competition. To participate in a competition, entries are allocated to each participant. This entry allocation is a monetized activity and this is the point where cash flow is generated. This is also where you can potentially earn MASSIVE commissions as an affiliate.
In the UK, prize competitions are big socio-commercial activities with over £4.3B processed in prizes in 2019 alone, according to statista.com. Competition-draws are run in schools, churches, malls, and can be run by for-profit or non-profit organizations. They are a fun way of promoting educational or skill-based contests, offering prizes, promoting a product, or raising awareness for a cause.

Is Linking To a Prize Competition page Safe For My Website?
Are Prize Competitions in a good neighborhood? One may ask.
The short answer is yes.
Linking to a prize competition page is safe and normal for any website as long as the rule of thumb of link placement is observed – linking in-context.
Like any other website, you must only link to competitions that are relevant to your post. Linking to an iPhoneX prize competition from a “Top 3 iPhones Review” page is great. But linking to the same competitions from a “Best Mattress For Young Couples” would be considered out of context and irrelevant to the page.
