Affiliate Marketing is a raplidly growing internet marketing activity, whereby a merchant (a company with products and services to sell) offers commercial terms to affiliates (a website owner) for the affiliate to promote the merchant’s website.

If a visitor finds a merchant’s website from an affiliate’s website and goes on to purchase a product or service, or do something else the merchant wishes (like request information), the merchant makes a payment to the affiliate, usually a fixed fee or commission.

Whether affiliate marketing is right for your business depends on your business, what it sells, where it sells it and how it sells it.
