What is an Affliate???

whatisaaffliateBefore I got heavy into the blogging and marketing world I was clueless on most of the terminology. One term that sticks out to me is an Affiliate. What is an Affiliate? The technical definition is – officially attach or connect (a subsidiary group or a person) to an organization. “the college is affiliated with the University of Wisconsin”
synonyms: associate with, be in league with, unite with, combine with, join with, join up with, join forces with, ally with, form an alliance with, align with, amalgamate with, merge with, coalesce with, federate with, confederate with, form a federation with, form a confederation with, team up with, band together with, cooperate with.

How that correlates to the blogging world is-MONEY. Most bloggers are making a good income from being an Affiliate with companies. How it usually works is its performance-based marketing in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought by the affiliate’s own marketing actions and the traffic they bring.
I wanted to share that knowledge with you guys. Have any of you had any luck with being an Affiliate? I do not have much experience in it myself but I know of others who have. Let me know what you think of this blog and do you have some feedback to share.
