The Rise & Fall of Affiliate Networks

Affiliate networks have existed for as long as internet advertising, and the basic model was a good one: find website publishers with real estate to spare and give them a space to meet up with advertisers who have products and services to sell. Publishers would get a cut of the sale and advertisers were able to boost their revenue. It’s not a unique idea; businesses have been using referrals as long as businesses have been around. Aside from the obvious online component, what makes affiliate marketing different from old-school referrals is the pursuit to track and pay those who have made the referral using accurate and reliable technologies.
