Affiliate marketing has grown immensely since its inception. It is a type of performance-based marketing used to drive sales and generate significant online revenue by the usage of regular marketing efforts. Curious, how this works? When an affiliate does an online search for a product as per their enjoyment and promotes the product online then they earn a commission for marketing your company’s products. The methods may include organic SEO, PPC, display advertising and email & content marketing. Sometimes other orthodox techniques could also be used like publishing reviews of products or services offered.
