Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is a practice where an individual or company earns a commission based on sales generated through referrals made for sellers. Affiliates are also called advertisers or publishers. They create links to promote products either in physical or digital form. When you sign up with a unique ID or a trackable URL. These help to credit and confirm affiliate partners. Affiliates are paid a percentage of the referred sale.


Most affiliate programs are free to join. They are very flexible, affiliates can choose what product, service or brand to promote. If one is passionate about a specific thing, find a product that you have faith in. If you commit to what you believe in, your prospects will pick it up and the enthusiasm will rub in to them and most of them will commit or at least they would give you an ear to present the product.
