    Definition of Affiliate Marketing
    I would appreciate seeing a definition of affiliate marketing. We have been approached by so many different people over the years, my understanding of the business is always changing. This membership is fantastic.

    Some time ago, when I ran an "Affiliate Marketing Is..." contest right here at ABW, Chris Sanderson of AMSWO defined it as The art of doing a merchant's marketing better than they can, and profiting from it.

    Since then... I have not seen a more eloquent or a more beautiful definition of what affiliates do.

    You may also check my definition of 2006 here.

    Thanks, Geno!

    Unfortunately, it seems any more, many merchants get a little pissy when an affiliate manages to do just that...
