An affiliate program is a marketing program in which a business rewards affiliates for each customer brought about by the affiliate’s own marketing efforts. The business pays a commission to affiliates who bring in customers through their own marketing efforts, typically through a tracking link or special code provided by the business. Affiliates can be individuals or businesses that promote the products or services of the business. The goal of an affiliate program is to drive sales and increase brand awareness through the efforts of affiliates.

An experienced Internet Marketer who has been there from the beginning. I remember the first affiliate program I joined back in 1998 called Netdetective. It paid $10/sale. I made a lot of money with it because I ranked in the top 10 in all of the many search engines back then. There was no Google.
I joined many affiliate programs and made a decent monthly income from them collectively. SEO was very easy way back then. Not anymore. SEO is much more challenging today.
I am also a WordPress expert and I love the platform. I love stock and crypto investing, Heikin-Ashi candles, the Ichimoku indicator, and exponential moving averages.
While I am bragging about myself, I love teaching. As a hobby, I am a drone pilot.
