What is an Affiliate Network?
An affiliate network is a marketing platform that connects businesses with individual affiliates. These networks act like a middleman, connecting merchants to affiliates who have agreed to promote their products or services.
Affiliate networks usually provide a marketplace that allows affiliates to easily research and join affiliate programs and select which offers to promote.
Affiliate networks also allow merchants and advertisers to search for and connect with affiliates that they think might be a good match for their affiliate program to promote their products or services.
Affiliates are usually compensated with a commission or fee based on how many sales they generate. This model is beneficial to both businesses and affiliates, as it offers an easy way to reach a large audience without the need for expensive advertising campaigns.
