Christopher Casanova

Affiliate programs are a great way for businesses to bring in extra income.  It is a marketing practice where a business(merchant) compensates one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought about by the affiliate’s own efforts. Examples include incentives for affiliates who bring their traffic to the merchants website or incentives for customers who purchase products. The for affiliate programs is continuously expanding and there even exists affiliate management agencies to help with the process.

There are several types payment options that a merchant would go about paying their affiliates. One of the most common ones is pay-per-click. With this method, the affiliate would advertise the links to products and services of the merchants site. If a customer were to click on any of the ads, the affiliate would receive a incentive for every time the link is clicked. Another one is pay-per-lead. Here, a merchant would compensate the affiliate for having the customer provide information that could lead to a sale. This can be done in various ways such as through filling out a contact form or signing up for a newsletter. Perhaps one of the best methods is pay-per-sale. This method provides an incentive to the affiliate if the customer were to purchase a product or service from the merchant. Pay-per-sale usually offers the most compensation for the affiliate out of methods and the effort required is minimal. This method is the most favorable because every party wins in this scenario.
