Affiliate definition

Are you a freelancer or a business looking for another source of income? Are you interested in the idea of making profit at any time, anywhere? Maybe you are looking to start earning more? Or even do you have websites that are receiving significant traffic while you are looking for a way to monetise it?

Then affiliate marketing is for you. Affiliate marketing refers to the idea of driving sales and generating online revenue. It is actually the process by which an affiliate earns a commission for marketing another person’s or company’s products. The affiliate simply searches for a product they enjoy, then promotes that product and earns a piece of the profit from each sale they make. The sales are tracked via affiliate links from one website to another.

How it works

Affiliate marketing involves multiple parties and works by spreading the responsibilities among these parties for both product creation and marketing. Leveraging these individuals for a more effective marketing strategy while providing them with a share of the profit is part of affiliation. To make this happen three main parties must be included:

Group 3437

Seller / Creator of product

Whether being an entrepreneur or a big company, the seller is the product creator or the brand. The seller does not necessarily have to be involved in the actual marketing but they can always advertise and profit off the revenue sharing related to affiliate marketing.

Group 3438

Affiliate / Publisher-Advertiser

The affiliate can either be an individual or a company that advertises the product of the seller in a way that will appeal to potential consumers. In other words, the ultimate goal of the affiliate is to persuade customers and convince them that the specific product is beneficial to them. Usually the audience they target is very specific. If eventually the consumer buys the product, then the affiliate will receive a part of the revenue made.

Group 3436

Consumer / Buyer

Consumers are the ones who drive affiliate marketing. The product is usually advertised through social media, blogs or websites. When it is bought, profit is shared between the seller and the affiliate. The consumer will complete the purchase and receive the product irrespective of the affiliate marketing system.
