Let’s start with quick definitions first:
Lark (aka “morning person”) — individual boosting with energy from early in the morning, and not as productive late in the evening.
Owl — needs caffeine in the morning, cannot wake up without an alarm, most productive in the evenings and at late night hours.
Hummingbird — a person ready for action both early and late
A study has shown that about 10% of people “qualify as larks”, 20% follow the “more owl-ish” patterns, while the rest of the population are really hummingbirds [source].
Over the past three weeks I have been polling affiliate marketers, trying to determine whether we are mostly larks, owls or hummingbirds. The results of the poll roughly correspond to the above-quoted stats. Here’s what the pie chart has ended up look like:
So, it looks like most of affiliate marketers are also hummingbirds.
