Affiliate Marketing Program



The party itself offers its products and services on the Internet, usually mentioned in the form of a merchant, the advertiser. The advertiser sets promotional material available for the affiliate, this can include banners, text links or forms. Ad predetermines what is being paid for compensation which actions.

Affiliates can send visitors, using the posted promotional, to the advertiser. When an action takes place in the shop of an advertiser, the affiliate will receive the predetermined fee. An example of an advertiser is Amazon.

Affiliate networks (intermediaries)

An affiliate network is an intermediary link between advertisers and affiliates. The affiliate networks ensure proper handling of payments to affiliates and by measuring placed sales and leads in their software. Affiliate networks make it possible for affiliates to promote multiple advertisers within a single interface. It can also prevent advertisers themselves are in possession of this software.

Affiliate marketing program is based on the principle of no win no fee, meaning that an affiliate is paid only if the service until he has been fully completed. The four fee structures in affiliate marketing are:

Pay per click (PPC)

PPC is independent of the number of generated sales or leads, there is namely a fixed amount – often a few cents – paid per click on the promotional material (the banner or text link) of the advertiser. The abbreviation eCPC represents the effective cost per click. The eCPC is calculated on the basis of the average revenue or expenditure per visitor delivered or received. Example: Adsense.

Pay per lead (PPL)

A lead compensation is paid when a visitor through the affiliate contact the advertiser for example, by filling out a form. Often lead fees paid to the promotion of services that are not sold directly via the internet.

Pay Per Sale (PPS)

This fee is paid as soon as the visitor makes through the affiliate for direct sales. In practice, this usually means a sale of a product to the visitor. The advertiser may pay compensation as a percentage of the sales amount to the affiliate. Here I can take Amazon as an example too.

Pay per view (PPV)

This is a fee paid to the affiliate by the advertiser each time the ad is viewed. You can apply for this on Youtube Views.
