You have products to sell and a great website, but how do you help customers who are ready to buy find you? You have a tight marketing budget, and don’t want to spend it only to find out once the campaign is over that it was a failure.
Your Business Needs an Affiliate Program.
What makes affiliate marketing so great is the fact that a business only pays when a desired action takes place. Typically, that action is a sale, but programs can be set up to reward partners for information requests, mailing list additions, etc.
You’ll hear it again and again. Affiliate marketing is all about relationships – the relationship between the advertiser (that’s you), the affiliate (also known as the publisher) and the consumer. The age-old concept is so easy, and that’s what makes affiliate marketing so successful.
