According to Neil Patel “Affiliate marketing is the process of earning a commission by promoting other people’s (or company’s) products.” I’m sure you’ve heard of its relative – Influencer Marketing. Depending upon the deal you have with the company you get a set fee for every purchase, sign-up, etc – or you get a % of the purchase.
