What is Affiliate marketing
Affiliate marketing is basically revenue sharing. The affiliate is earning a commission from a company by advertising products or services of that company. On the internet this process is accomplished through a website. A website is the affiliates store front. It is ones business address, where you can find the goods or services being advertised. When you come across a product you’re interest in, that website is not necessarily selling that product. They are offering you a link with the company selling the product. This is what’s called affiliate marketing. When you click on that link, if you make a purchase, the website owner earns a commission. You don’t pay any more for that product than if you went direct to the company. It’s just that the affiliate gets paid for the referral.
