Definition of Affiliate Program

An affiliate program is a commission-based marketing strategy that enables website owners to reward affiliates for referring customers to their business.

Through the affiliate program, a website owner provides an affiliate link to another website, which drives traffic and sales to the affiliated website.

In exchange for their efforts, affiliates typically receive a percentage of any sales that occur as a result of clicks on the affiliate link.

Affiliate programs are a great way for website owners to reach new potential customers while rewarding those who already know and trust them.
