In our last article about affiliate marketing, we introduced you to the basics of the concept: how it works and how the pay cycle functions. In this article, we will go over how the payment schemes are specifically set up, and explain a couple of different ways in which affiliate marketing can benefit you.

So How Do I Get Paid?

There are three different setups that all affiliate marketing programs use to determine how much money you will get paid, and how that money is calculated.

  1. In the pay-per-sale model, sometimes called cost-per-sale model, affiliate marketer websites are paid based on not only how many visitors come to the host’s website from the affiliate’s, but how many purchases they make. This means that in order for a pay-per-sale affiliate website to be particularly effective, they must be able to sell a particular product on the host website. Great for experts at affiliate marketing, but a bad idea for those of us that are terrible at selling things.
  2. In the pay-per-click model, affiliate marketer websites work towards merely generating web traffic for the host website. Their primary function is just to get visitors to head to their host’s website, which is usually much easier than trying to get them to pay for something. This can be done in any number of ways, from traffic redirects to popup ads to banner advertisements.
  3. Finally, with the pay-per-lead type of affiliate programming, the affiliate marketer’s website must not only get a visitor to their host’s website, but that visitor must also fill out a survey or some other type of form. This information is used by the host site in a variety of different ways, from marketing campaigns to email blitzes.

While these are the three major types of affiliate marketing programs, there are a few others. In our next article, we’ll go over the remaining types, and give you some advice on how to decide which affiliate marketing program is right for you and your Internet marketing strategy.
