Affiliate marketing is the process by which an affiliate earns a commission for marketing another person’s or company’s products. The affiliate simply searches for a product they enjoy, then promotes that product and earns a piece of the profit from each sale they make. The sales are tracked via affiliate links from one website to another.
Affiliate marketing is a simple 3-step process:
- You recommend a product or service.
- They purchase the product or service using your affiliate link.
- You get paid a commission for the sales made using your affiliate link.
