What is affiliate marketing?

From an ecommerce store manager, Affiliate program is just like hiring a sale team that works on commissions strictly.

The commission can be in terms of customer’s visit, subscription, or purchase. Often, the affiliates place your banner or text in their websites, which refers to your sites.

Due to the fact that the payment only happens after the performance completed, a proper affiliate program will bring you many benefits, especially a predictable cost. Unlike online advertising tools, you have to pay per click of customers before a sale happens, cost in affiliate program occurs only after a sale.
