best home based business womenFull confession: I’m a guy, so I really have my tail tucked between my legs on this one.

That said, the statistics don’t lie, and there is a clear, best home based business women are naturally better at than men.

Can you guess what it is?

Affiliate marketing.

The Stats

This information is from a presentation on internet marketing trends I attended at the Moscone Center in San Francisco recently.

  • Like a lot of technical fields, the number of men that own or operate affiliate marketing sites outpaces the women by more than 2 to 1.
  • Just under 70% of affiliate sites that are individually owned (eg: not owned by a company) are owned by men, leaving a little less than a third of the sites being owned by women.

Women Earn More

Despite that huge difference, the affiliate sites owned by women account for nearly half of all affiliate profits earned by individuals!

That means that women earn roughly 80% more per site, on average, than their male counterparts.

This figure excludes incorporated entities, and focuses just on individually owned sites.

What It Means

I’m perplexed as to why this actually is, and the presentation didn’t go into any extra details or hypotheses explaining the results of the study.

My conclusions?

If you’re a guy: it’s time to get your act together. The game is on!

If you’re a girl: please don’t mock us for our ineptitude.
