Not sure what Affiliate Marketing is? Well let us simplify things for you a bit… Affiliate Marketing is a method of driving sales of a product or service using a third-party sales force that only get paid on results. When you are paying based on results, you are getting more sales for less risk. Affiliate marketing is, first and foremost, about relationships. It relies on a relationship between a merchant (ie. Retailer) and you, the affiliate/publisher, as well as a relationship between you and consumers. When you promote the merchant’s product or service offerings (on your blog
, website, social media feed
, etc.) and a consumer purchases a product/service from the brand based on your promotion, the merchant pays you a revenue share of the sale that you helped generate.
