Affiliate Marketing is a technique where other publishers and websites will promote your business. Basically the way it works is that an affiliate is rewarded every time a visitor, customer or sale for your business is generated through an advertisement on their web site. There are many different ways compensation is provided, but the concept remains consistent—you pay them for generating business for you.
Affiliate marketing is seen as a cost-effective, results-driven way to encourage sales by motivating individuals to earn money through commission. As long as someone has a website and can post a link to a company’s site, they can earn commission based on how many people followed the link and made a purchase.
