Affiliate marketing:a marketing arrangement in which influencers, i.e. affiliates, receive a commission for each sale they generate for a brand. This arrangement allows businesses to outsource part of the sales process and better tie influencer marketing directly to sales.
For influencers, affiliate sales rely on trust and authenticity. For brands, working with affiliates expands their reach, increases sales through affiliate partnerships, and shows clear ROI when choosing which influencers to form partnerships with.
The best affiliate content feels organic, aligns with your identity, engages your audience, and showcases your opinions as a thought leader.
