Affiliate Programs, also known as Associate Programs are just a way companies get massive traffic, sales or members without the need to personally recruit new people for their business. If you are familiar with Network Marketing in the real world you will have no problem understanding Affiliate Programs. These companies recruit a sales force that only gets paid when they make sales or give direct referrals or leads. As an affiliate you promote their products and services. In return they will pay you a commission for each sale or membership you sell on their behalf.
