What is Affiliate Marketing all about?
Wikipedia defines Affiliate Marketing as
“Affiliate Marketing is a type of performance-based marketing in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought about by the affiliate’s own marketing efforts.”
Sounds confusing? Yeah, I think so too.
In simplicity, according to Commission Factory, this is how Affiliate Marketing Works:
Affiliate Marketing involves 4 parties:
1. The Merchant – Offers affiliate program for Affiliate Marketer to advertise the merchant’s product. Merchant gives commissions for each referral sale.
2. The Affiliate Marketer– Sign up the affiliate program offered by the merchant. Promote Merchant’s product and get paid commission with each successful referred sales.
3. The Customer – Found Affiliate Marketer’s promotion through Website, Social Media or Advertisement Campaign. Buys through Affiliate Marketer’s affiliate links.
4. The Affiliate Network – Offers Merchant and Affiliate Marketer one-stop sales and commission management. Provide Merchant and Affiliate Marketer with tools and sales reports. Commission Factory and Commission Junction are examples of Affiliate Network. However, not all Merchants will use Affiliate Network. E.g. Amazon has its own Affiliate Management Site.
