What is Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate Marketing is an independent distribution system and belongs to the field of online marketing. As with all marketing activities, the goal is to attract new customers or to keep them. The counterpart in the „offline world“ is the trade representative. This gets a certain commission for successful sales contracts.
It acts similarly online. This time, the parties involved are Merchant and Affiliate. The merchant is the dealer or the company that wants to sell products. The affiliate is the partner used and usually a website operator. The merchant provides the affiliate with a so-called affiliate link. The partner integrates him into his website. The link redirects the visitor to the merchant`s website.
