Affiliate Marketing is one of the many advertising techniques used by companies to help them generate sales. In an affiliate marketing arrangement, a company advertises their products through a deal made with an affiliate merchant. The advertiser who is promoting the products already has its own website, which can be reached by way of a link from the affiliate website. To get maximum benefits from affiliate marketing, it is advisable that you advertise with high traffic websites.


History

Affiliate marketing is just like an advertising section of the newspaper. Usually, this internet marketing affiliate program enables the affiliate to earn commission for every successful purchase made through the advertisement on the affiliate site. In another kind of affiliate marketing program, the affiliate will make some money for directing consumers to the advertiser's website, even if no purchase is made. If your products sell well, paying affiliate marketing associate program commission to the affiliate may be a more costly option.


Examples

Amazon.com

Amazon.com was the first e-commerce site to create a large-scale internet affiliate marketing program. After that, hundreds of other companies followed suite. Now it's very easy for you to find an internet marketing company affiliate as many websites are willing to establish a mutually beneficial partnership with advertisers. You don't actually need to set up an affiliate marketing agency to establish any form of affiliate marketing agreement. You can either use affiliate marketing software or just scout the internet for prospective affiliates.



Process

Once you have established your first affiliate marketing program, you need to build up your affiliate marketing network. You can do this by coming up with an email list of all your friends, families, colleagues and relatives to whom you can offer products. You may also buy leads through the internet. But to maximize the potential of affiliate marketing, the best thing to do is set up an affiliate internet marketing web site which specializes in advertising for online companies. Advertisers have banners or buttons you can easily place in your website that would direct the consumer to the company's website.
