Affiliate marketing is a way of making money online by promoting
the products of another company for a commission on each sale you
People who promote products in this manner are called
"affiliates", or sometimes "partners" or "associates". Most affiliates
promote products through their websites or email lists, but you're not
restricted to these methods: Basically, anywhere you can put a website
address or a hyperlink can be turned into a promotional vehicle -- the
only limit is your imagination.

not a tool for scammers and spammers. Affiliates are regular people
looking to earn some extra cash from their websites, or individuals
wanting a serious work-at-home business that they can perform from
anywhere in the world, with serious earning potential.
