Affiliate program is a format of advertising activity of an online store or service, aimed at increasing sales. The store provides affiliate members with links, banners, texts to advertise their products and pays a percentage of purchases made by customers who came from an affiliate’s advertisement.
The main difference between an choies affiliate program and other ways of making money on the Internet is payment for a result, registration or sale. There are also pay-per-click programs (clicks from your site to the advertised site) or impressions of advertising materials, but their number is small.
It is believed that affiliate programs are a way of earning money for webmasters and owners of their sites. But you can earn in the affiliate program, and without having your own website. You can advertise the site and products of the affiliate program, for example, by placing your referral link in the signature on the forums, on your blog, on the social network, you can place banners and text links on other sites. All methods are good except spam. This method of advertising is a violation of the rules of the affiliate program, they are easy to detect and instead of earning you will receive a lock on your account in the affiliate program.
