What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketers make commissions when they sell products for a company.

Affiliate marketing is the process of earning a commission by promoting another person/company’s product. This type of digital marketing is an easy way to make money online in your spare time. An “affiliate” earns an allocation of a specific advertiser’s income that has been generated from direct sales and other forms like pay-per-click revenue, conversion, or leads over some agreed period - such as per month or quarter. The performance impact on the affiliate varies depending on how much effort was expended towards selling the advertisers’ products (i.e., not all affiliates are expected equally). The commission rate may vary from case to case.
