Affil­i­ates pro­mote the offer­ings of a com­pa­ny and earn­ing rev­enue through com­mis­sion based agree­ments. These indi­vid­u­als typ­i­cal­ly use their online pres­ence like per­son­al web­sites, social media han­dles and email data­bas­es to reach out to pos­si­ble cus­tomers on behalf of the com­pa­ny. For each suc­cess­ful sale made via these efforts by affil­i­ates they receive com­mis­sions as per pre deter­mined terms.
