Grow Your Business with Affiliate Marketing
What is Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate Marketing is a revenue sharing venture between two businesses.
Business one (your business) pays business 2 (your affiliates) for sending new customers to your site.
An example is having your affiliate host your ad on their website.
When potential customers find your business through the affiliate site, you pay the affiliate money.
The affiliate benefits by being paid to host your ad, and your business benefits by acquiring potential new customers.
It is often one of the more cost effective channels since you only pay when a successful transaction happens.
affiliate programs are ideal for businesses that are trying to get new customers.
In as little as six months to a year, you can have hundreds of affiliates marketing your products or services, often at a lower customer acquisition cost than other channels of online advertising.
If this is your first affiliate program, you may want to consider working with an affiliate network.
affiliate networks connect advertisers and publishers who can drive traffic to your website.
Additionally they provide tracking, reporting and handle all affiliate payments.
With new programs, affiliates often feel more comfortable working through networks.
There tends to be more confi dence in tracking methods, as well as faith they will be paid in a timely manner.
A downside to joining a network is the upfront costs, which vary from $575 to $6000.

IAB Affiliate Marketing Handbook
Affiliate Marketing works. It really does.
The UK’s leading retailers, financial services providers, utility companies all run affiliate programmes.
They recognise the fact that affiliates generate sales and can do so in a cost effective way unmatched by any other online channel.
But it’s not just the big boys who can take advantage of this channel SMEs too can utilise affiliates as an efficient way to successfully achieve scale and sales.
The accomplishments of the channel over the past ten years are in no small part down to the continued innovation and entrepreneurial nature of the affiliate publishers themselves.
However herein lays the problem of affiliate marketing – understanding it.
It’s very easy for marketers unfamiliar with the channel to be confused by jargon and blindsided by how it all works.
The continued development of the affiliate industry into a multichannel discipline necessitating different approaches and management can make it difficult for advertisers to integrate it into more traditional or linear marketing plans.
Affiliate marketing can also be difficult for marketers to explain internally and to justify the way in which affiliate budgets require a greater amount of flexibility than other forms of marketing.
