What is affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate marketing is a process in which a business pays for advertisement or promotion using a third-party. Examples of this could be a blog, social media account, an individual or a website. In exchange for their promotion, the third-party receives a commission or other incentive. Affiliate marketers are often seen on popular platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter, as they take advantage of social media’s global reach.
What affiliate marketers do
Affiliate marketers play a vital role in bridging the gap between businesses and customers. By leveraging their relationships and influence, affiliate marketers help businesses amplify their visibility, customer base and profits. However, in order for this to be possible, they need to be motivated to continue their efforts. Incentives are essential in driving this motivation and encouraging affiliate marketers to put forth their best work. Incentives motivate affiliate marketers to put out better work and become more productive. Incentives also increase productivity by providing a measure of recognition for the affiliate marketer’s efforts. When affiliate marketers are recognised for their work, they feel that their endeavours are being acknowledged.
