    Smile What are the types of Affiliate Marketing?
    I am trying to find and learn about all of the various types of Affiliate Marketing Programs. If you have a link where I can find this information, that would be fine as well.

    For example:

    Here's a link that has the information, but be warned, it's a big old place and you might need to look around a bit:
    Second best place? wikipedia.

    I'm really not sure what you're asking here. Perhaps you could be more specific about what information you're starting with, and the purpose of your question.

    I tried to list a variety of "types of affiliates" in the final section of my "affiliate marketing advice for merchants" in 2007, but that was written for a specific, narrow audience and probably isn't what you're looking for.

    There are several "types of affiliates" that aren't identified in my 2007 article (email newsletter affiliates, direct-to-merchant PPC search affiliates, CPA networks, and more), and there are new variations for some existing types of affiliates.

    Affiliate Marketing Programs are the merchants who setup in-house or network based programs and the count is 10k+.

    Affiliates use all sorts of models and many use several. The networks give narrow classifications like promotional methods:

    Web site / Content
    Search Engine Marketing
    Email Marketing

    This doesn't properly encompass methods like social, mobile, video, loyalty, rebate, etc.

    In my experience, when people ask about the types of affiliate marketing programs they are interested mainly in how the payouts are structured. dannymack - is that what you're interested in? If so, you've got pay per lead, pay per sale, pay per click, pay per download, pay per call. In the end, it's ultimately all about the acquisition (and a quality one at that) for the merchant.
