What Is Affiliate Marketing??
I think the easiest way to explain affiliate marketing is that, it’s a method to make money online whereby you as a distributor or publisher are paid a commission for helping a business by advertising their product, service, video or website.
There are many kind of special offers but generally they include you as a publisher making a percentage when someone follows a link, text or banner on your blog to another website where they then purchase something.
For Example: When The Samsung Company released a mobile phone, they also give people an opportunity to promote that with an affiliate program whereby they could earn 10% or 15% commission for every sale.
When you sign up to become an affiliate, they give you a special unique code that permits you to promote the specific product and make a specific commission for per sale.
Most of the company choose affiliate marketing as a way to promote their products because they know, they will only have to pay when publishers will sale. Company get less profit for single sale because of using affiliate promoting network but it increases overall sales levels.
