« Affiliate Management Software (Part I)
How Affiliate Programs WorkAffiliate management software allows new affiliates the chance to easily and quickly sign up for your program. Once they have joined, they are provided with all the promotional materials needed to help market your products, such as banners, text links, and product information via the affiliate management software. Once the affiliate has planted the code into his site, whenever a visitor clicks on the ad, he is transferred to your site, and monitored with a cookie. If a sale is made, the administrator is notified, and the sale is registered to the affiliate's ID number.
