How it works
The affiliate marketing model is a performance based advertising method that enables third parties to earn commission on sales that they initiate.
Affiliate marketing is when a third party (known as an affiliate) promotes an advertiser’s product or service and earns a commission for any sales they generate. An affiliate sends visitors to an advertiser’s website, and if any of these visitors then go on to make a purchase this transaction is then recorded by the network and the network assigns a commission to the affiliate for initiating the sale.
A key advantage of this model, over more traditional promotional channels is that customer clicks and conversions are tracked, so advertisers only pay for actual clicks or sales generated by the affiliate.
It is free to become an affiliate, and is a great way to monetize an online audience. One of the biggest advantages of becoming an affiliate is you can promote a product without having to own any stock, and if you join a network like SLICE Digital you can access a wide range of advertisers operating in wide range of sectors.
