What is Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate marketing refers to an electronic commerce version of traditional concept of agent/referral fee sales channel. But affiliate marketing is different from multi link marketing. Affiliate marketing is a revenue sharing venture between a website owner and an online merchant.
There is a fine line between affiliate marketing and internet marketing, because affiliates use methods such as organic search engine optimization, paid search engine marketing, email marketing and display advertising. Affiliates also use less orthodox techniques such as publishing reviews of products or services. An affiliate website always links back to a prominent e-commerce website. Though affiliate marketing helps to cut out the middleman, still affiliates need to trust the software and people behind the e-commerce website they are joining.
