When I tell people I am an affiliate marketer people usually nod their heads as if they know what this means, but I can see in their eyes… they haven’t a clue. I hope to enlighten and educate those who politely nod while they think I’m speaking greek!
Affiliate marketing is when a publisher, also known as content provider (i.e. gourmetbetty.com) is paid when a lead or sale happens at the advertisers, also known as merchant, website (i.e. latienda.com) from an end users (i.e. you the reader) that is redirected from the affiliates’ site.
Full Disclosure: BettyHakes.com and GourmetBetty.com is an affiliate site (publisher), and is compensated if you purchase product some of the products or services listed above. These sales help support this site (not to mention my upcoming kids’ college tuition! :-0 )
