How Does An Affiliate Program Work?
An affiliate program is the name given to the entire online sales referral division within a company. A company that offers an affiliate program opportunity allows people to register online and become approved “affiliates” who are allowed to share product links which lead back to the website and refer customers.
As a registered affiliate of a company you connect buyers to products by sharing a special web link a.k.a. an affiliate link, that leads to a web page where they (the customers) can make a purchase or register as a member.
If the person you refer through that assigned affiliate link buys something, then you get paid a referral commission or what is referred to as an affiliate commission. By the way, the art of promoting affiliate products is Affiliate Marketing. People who become experts at affiliate marketing are considered a Super Affiliate. Top affiliates often earn $5000 a month, $10000 a month and even $1M a year.
For example, the following companies have affiliate programs where they pay registered affiliates to send them customers. If those customers buy something, the company will then pay a referral fee to the affiliate that brought in the customer.
Companies That Have Affiliate Programs: Walmart, Best Buy, Amazon, Ebay, Netflix, Autozone.
