What is Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate marketing is the process of referring products or services from your site and earning a commission when a sale is made.
As an affiliate, you will be provided with tracking links to promote on your site or blog and when a sale is made, the merchant company credits the commission back to you.
You will get access to an affiliate login area where you can check your statistics to see how much traffic you are bringing to the merchant and how many sales your site is generating.
Benefits of Affiliate Marketing
1) No products to sell, ship or manage
2) No customer service to handle (the merchant company handles this)
3) Earn money while you sleep
4) Easy to join and implement into any website or blog
5) 99.9% of affiliate programs are free to join
