What is Affiliate Marketing? ↑ Back to top
Affiliate Marketing is the process of earning commissions by promoting other people’s (or company’s) products. It motivates consumers to sell a product they like, and in turn earns a piece of the profit for each sale they make.
It is based on revenue sharing. If you have a product and want to sell more, you can give financial incentives to promoters through affiliate programs.
