  3. 3. What is Affiliate Marketing? Affiliate marketing programs are actually agreements between website owners and merchants. Under this, the affiliate or website owners agree on allowing their website to be used for promotional activities. In other words, linking to site of the online vendor for the products. In return, the merchant pays a certain percentage of commission for all the sales acquired by the affiliate. Every time a person clicks on the affiliate website, he is redirected to the merchant website. When he makes a purchase on any of these sites, the affiliate gets a commission. These programs are run by online publishers and generate money through registration forms, click- through ads and product sales displayed and conducted on the website. Online affiliate marketing programs prove lucrative for both, publishers and advertisers. Affiliate marketing has turned out to be one of the most effective ways to advertise online. In addition, these programs are also one of the easiest ways for people with websites to earn profit online.
