What is an affiliate?
An affiliate is a person or organization that promotes a product or service on behalf of a company and earns a commission for any resulting sales. Affiliates are also called publishers because they publish content where they market their affiliate links.
They typically do this by creating marketing materials, such as banners or links, that can be placed on their own website or social media channels.
When a customer clicks on one of these links and makes a purchase, the affiliate earns a percentage of the sale or a flat fee as a commission.
Affiliate marketing is a popular way for businesses to expand their reach and for individuals to earn money by promoting products they believe in.
