Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is a form of marketing that rewards existing customers or brand advocates for each visitor or purchase acquired by their marketing efforts. Typically, affiliate marketing is commission-based. For example, an affiliate blogger may review a product on their personal blog. Their review includes a link that takes visitors back to a landing page that hosts a sign-up form or link to purchase the product. For every sign-up or purchase, the blogger earns a commission from the company that sells the product.
