Affiliate marketing involves recommending a product or service by sharing it on a blog, social media platform, podcast, or website. The affiliate earns a commission every time someone makes a purchase through the unique affiliate link associated with their referral. Most affiliates are paid through PayPal or directly to their bank account. Typical affiliate programs make payments every month or once you reach a specific amount in commissions.
Extremely beneficial to both brands and affiliate marketers, the new push toward less traditional marketing tactics has certainly paid off.
