WHAT IS AFFILIATE MARKETING?
Affiliate marketing is making money by promoting some other company’s product. In other words, you earn a commission by marketing some products of some other companies.

WHY IS AFFILIATE MARKETING A GOOD BUSINESS?
Nowadays, affiliate marketing is becoming more and more popular. There are many reasons for its popularity. Firstly, affiliate marketing promotes the product in an unobtrusive way. The product is advertised in a natural way, without flashy commercials, flyers, billboards and other. People who do not like commercials and regular marketing are attracted more by this kind of marketing. Secondly, affiliate marketing involves partnership. You earn money by promoting what you want. People who do affiliate marketing choose what they want to promote. Thirdly, products are better sold in this way. People trust the seller because he or she promotes the product naturally. Depending on the contract, you either get paid after the product is bought or you get paid each time a person clicks on the link. Anyhow, the seller gets paid very quickly. It is in his or her interest to get more clicks or to sell more product. Fourthly, it is great for the seller because it is convenient, you can work from home and find a way to promote the product in a manner that suits you best. You do not have to visit houses and offer your product, you just turn on your computer and offer it to the world. Of course, you need to target the audience, and to promote the product in the right way. But overall, it is convenient for the seller.
These four reasons are just some reasons that show us how affiliate marketing can become a good business. People can promote products in the way they like best. If we look at bloggers, they can write about the things they like and do some unobtrusive marketing, which is highly beneficial for both the company and the seller.
