					Affiliate marketing is a marketing practice in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each
visitor or customer brought about by the affiliate's own marketing efforts. Examples include rewards
sites, where users are rewarded with cash or gifts, for the completion of an offer, and the referral of
others to the site. The industry has four core players: the merchant (also known as 'retailer' or 'brand'),
the network, the publisher (also known as 'the affiliate'), and the customer. The market has grown in
complexity to warrant a secondary tier of players, including affiliate management agencies, super-
affiliates and specialized third party vendors.



Affiliate marketing overlaps with other Internet marketing methods to some degree, because affiliates
often use regular advertising methods. Those methods include organic search engine optimization, paid
search engine marketing, e-mail marketing, and in some sense display advertising. On the other hand,
affiliates sometimes use less orthodox techniques, such as publishing reviews of products or services
offered by a partner.



Affiliate marketing—using one website to drive traffic to another—is a form of online marketing, which
is frequently overlooked by advertisers.[1] While search engines, e-mail, and website syndication
capture much of the attention of online retailers, affiliate marketing carries a much lower profile. Still,
affiliates continue to play a significant role in e-retailers' marketing strategies.[2]
