Good point. I'm not sure whether anyone has done any hard science on this, but remember there are a lot of affiliates out there who are doing very well without having to pay for traffic.
Affiliates with large and responsive lists who know how to hype up a product launch can make tens of thousands of dollars overnight, without having to spend a dime on promotion. (Aside from what you pay for your autoresponder membership, which is peanuts in comparison).
Affiliates who build a lot of smaller SEO sites (like AffiloBlueprint sites) can also do quite well with comparatively little spending, but it takes a while to build up.
Not everyone is doing PPC :)
