What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate Marketing is an outcome-based marketing strategy where a business recruits third-party marketers, or affiliates, to promote their products or services. In exchange, affiliates earn a commission for each sale, lead, or action generated through their marketing efforts. Affiliate marketing is a cost-efficient way of increasing sales and generating additional revenues, without incurring significant risk of high-cost marketing services that may not yield results, as the business will only pay for their desired outcomes.
