If you’re looking to make some extra money online and get the word out about your business at the same time, then affiliate marketing is probably the best way to do that. Affiliate marketing is when you use other websites to post links to your content and business in order to drive more traffic and gain sales from these referrals. It’s a great way to achieve a massive earning potential in the competitive industry of e-commerce, but the only tricky part of it is tracking it all. While it can be challenging to manage your affiliate links along with your regular business activities, there are tools available to make it easier.
