In its simplest context, affiliate marketing is a marketing method where a business that offers the affiliate marketing program will give incentives, commissions, or rewards to its affiliate marketers who bring visitors or customers to the web site of the business through their independent marketing efforts. Affiliate marketing offers the advantage of having a wider network of marketers for the business and only paying those who deserved to be paid for their marketing efforts. It is performance-base in the sense that an affiliate marketer will only be paid if and only if he can bring a visitor or a customer to the web site of the business offering the affiliate marketing program.

Affiliate marketing can become a passive source of income for the affiliate marketer.
