Affiliate Marketing is a way of making money online by promoting the products of another company for a commission on each sale you generate.
People who promote products in this manner are called “affiliates”, or sometimes “partners” or “associates”. Most affiliates promote products through their websites or email lists, but you’re not restricted to these methods: Basically, anywhere you can put a website address or a hyperlink can be turned into a promotional vehicle — the only limit is your imagination.
Affiliate Marketing isn’t a pyramid-selling scheme, and it’s not a tool for scammers and spammers. Affiliates are regular people looking to earn some extra cash from their websites, or individuals wanting a serious work-at-home business that they can perform from anywhere in the world, with serious earning potential.
