The affiliate channel is classified as “performance-based marketing” because of the cost-per-action or lead based model that it employs. Under this model affiliates are rewarded for customers referred to an advertiser’s website through the placement of banners, product feeds, digital rich media and contextual ads. The affiliate marketing channel is uniquely positioned to target an advertiser’s ideal demographic. The ROI of an affiliate campaign is tremendous and represents a large potential revenue stream for eCommerce companies.
