You must already know by now that affiliate marketing is one of the easiest ways to make money online.
It is a revenue sharing partnership between an affiliate (who agrees to promote products and services) and the merchant. The affiliate promotes and sells the merchant’s product and receives a commission for every successful referral.
Every time a visitor (potential customer) is referred to the merchant’s website, through the affiliate’s site, and buys a product, the affiliate receives a commission.
Without results (sales), the affiliate is not paid.
Compensation is based on either number of visits (pay-per-click), registrant (pay-per-lead), or commission for each sale (pay-per-sale).
