What is an affiliate?
In Internet marketing, an affiliate is a person or company which sends visitors to a website in exchange for commissions.
Affiliates can earn commissions in four ways: per impression, per click, per sale and per lead.
Pay-per-impression and pay-per-click programs have declined dramatically in numbers because of impression and click fraud.
Pay-per-sale and pay-per-lead programs are still very common and growing in number.
These days the whole process is easy for affiliates. You go to Affiliate Advantage's site, type in your name and address, and your website is automatically verified and approved. In the vast majority of cases, approval is instant and automatic.
Each affiliate is given a unique link to paste into his or her website, so the merchants can track which affiliate is responsible for generating a sale.
Most affiliates own a website or several websites. However, some affiliates earn commissions by paying for advertising and sending the visitors directly from the ads to the merchant. This "affiliate arbitrage" is a tough field for a newcomer. It's easy to spend more than you earn. Instead, we strongly recommend you start by creating your own website.
Being an affiliate is a bit like being a commissioned sales person – online.
There are many advantages in having this sort of business. For example, you don't have to create a product, you don't have to carry any inventory, you don't have to worry about handling products, or postage, or refunds. You also work from home, choosing your own hours. You are your own boss.
Disadvantages? You have to have discipline and determination to succeed. For newcomers to Internet marketing, joining an affiliate program or two is an excellent opportunity – a good way to earn money without producing your own product.
Affiliates join the programme that they are interested in promoting via the affiliate area of the Affiliate Advantage website and then download the tools they want to use and commence promoting the merchant.
Affiliate Advantage tracks the sales that accumulate and pays the affiliate the commissions earned on all of the merchants' programmes that the affiliate has promoted.
