Affiliate Marketing

Give and take is the rule for almost everything in this world. Affiliate marketing is a good example. This system is based on commissions. Companies which sell their products on the internet pay the website owners (affiliates) when they attract customers and turn them into buyers. In this way both parties benefit.

Especially in social media, affiliate marketing is gaining importance, as the so called YouTube starlets indicate. Young women who upload their make-up videos turn into influence marketers and often also into affiliates. Users and fans become prospective customers, while the YouTuber makes money with every purchase via the affiliate link.
