Sometimes, third-party subscribers receive compensations from a company to generate leads or traffic to the paying company’s services and products. This email marketing advertising model is called Affiliate.
When you promote the products of a company or individual for a fee (commission), you are doing affiliate marketing. It is all about identifying a product you like, promoting it to other users, and getting a certain percentage of the profit for every sale you make.
So, we can describe affiliate marketing as the process of spreading product creation and product marketing to various parties, with each party getting a percentage of the revenue based on their inputs.
You are an affiliate marketer not just because you promote or create products. Playing the role of the marketer and the creator does not stop you from profiting from the background idea of sharing revenue.
