Affiliate marketing is very close in association with internet marketing because you are doing basic advertising to make sales and earning commissions.  A marketer could use several methods for drawing traffic such as email marketing, paid search engine marketing, search engine optimization, link exchange, social networking, article writing and blogging. Pay per click marketing is a very popular method as well but can be costly so it’s not suggested for first time affiliate marketers to start with unless you have that kind of money to dish out. It’s less costly for companies to hire affiliate marketers rather than hire more full time staff because a full time staff would require hourly payments and benefits but an affiliate marketer gets paid only from the number of sales they’ve referred.
