Affiliate marketing is an online advertising channel in which advertisers (online merchants that sell products or services) pay publishers (independent parties that promote the products or services of an advertiser on their Web site) only for results, such as a visitor making a purchase or filling out a form, rather than paying simply to reach a particular audience. This "pay-for-performance" model is in essence the modern version of the "finders'-fee" model, where individuals who introduce new clients to a business are compensated. The difference in the case of affiliate marketing is that advertisers pay their publishers only when the new client introduction results in a sale or a lead, making it a low-risk, high-reward environment for both parties.

9.2. Confidentiality. Each party agrees to use the other party's Confidential Information solely for the purposes contemplated by this Agreement, and to refrain from disclosing the other party's Confidential Information to any third-party, unless (a) any disclosure is necessary and permitted in connection with the receiving party's performance of its obligations or exercise of its rights under this Agreement or any other agreement between the parties; (b) any disclosure is required by applicable law; provided, that the receiving party uses reasonable efforts to give the disclosing party reasonable advance notice thereof so as to afford the disclosing party an opportunity to intervene and seek an order or other appropriate relief for the protection of its Confidential Information from any unauthorized use or disclosure; or (c) any disclosure is made with the consent of the disclosing party. For the purposes of this Agreement "Confidential Information" includes, without limitation, the terms of this Agreement (including pricing) and information regarding existing or contemplated service, products, advertisers, processes, techniques, or know-how, or any information or data developed pursuant to the performance of the services. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Affiliate agrees that Company may divulge its personal and/or otherwise Confidential Information to an agency, legal or regulatory authority, person or entity relating to investigations, claims or actions that Affiliate has violated this Agreement or any applicable law or regulation.

Every affiliate marketing relationship between a merchant and the affiliate/content publisher is defined by an affiliate marketing agreement. Usually, the merchant creates the agreement, and affiliates agree to abide by the terms in order to participate. These agreements should include terms like (1) payment structure, (2) advertisement means and structure, and (3) cookie duration (i.e., once customers clicks the link, how soon do they need to purchase the product for the affiliate to get paid?)  In addition to laying a foundation for a business relationship, these agreements can also protect both merchants and affiliates in several ways.

As of today, merchants can either act as if they will be held liable for their affiliate’s actions, or be prepared for FTC litigation if an affiliate does something illegal. In order to prevent unneeded litigation, your affiliate marketing agreement should explicitly and clearly state terms about how the affiliate may and may not advertise. The agreement should also include a proper termination clause in the event a violation does occur.

Since the late 90s digital affiliate marketing has grown to a big industry, in 2016 US-based retailers have spent $4.7 billion on affiliate marketing.

Not surprisingly, given the size of the sector, there are a lot of different affiliate marketing companies operating in various market segments.
The ad exchange puts the offer out for bid to demand-side platforms. Demand side platforms act on behalf of ad agencies, who sell ads which advertise brands. Demand side platforms thus have ads ready to display, and are searching for users to view them. Bidders get the information about the user ready to view the ad, and decide, based on that information, how much to offer to buy the ad space. According to the Internet Advertising Bureau, a demand side platform has 10 milliseconds to respond to an offer. The ad exchange picks the winning bid and informs both parties.
The first known large-scale non-commercial spam message was sent on 18 January 1994 by an Andrews University system administrator, by cross-posting a religious message to all USENET newsgroups.[12] In January 1994 Mark Eberra started the first email marketing company for opt in email list under the domain Insideconnect.com. He also started the Direct Email Marketing Association to help stop unwanted email and prevent spam. [13] [14]

Working with affiliate marketing companies has a lot of business benefits. Operating on a CPA model means they offer a low-risk strategy that can yield huge results. It’s a performance driven approach that only rewards affiliate partners who generate sales. Advertisers don’t pay-out unless the campaign is successful, which generates a strong ROI making this channel one of the most profitable digital channels to exist. This also means that affiliate marketing companies don’t get paid unless your campaign generates positive results.
Websites and services based on Web 2.0 concepts—blogging and interactive online communities, for example—have impacted the affiliate marketing world as well. These platforms allow improved communication between merchants and affiliates. Web 2.0 platforms have also opened affiliate marketing channels to personal bloggers, writers, and independent website owners. Contextual ads allow publishers with lower levels of web traffic to place affiliate ads on websites.[citation needed]
At its core, affiliate marketing is all about relationships. It brings great value to both businesses and entrepreneurs who are trying to sell something and need help with promotion, and affiliates who earn a commission (i.e. a piece of profit) for every sale made. This win-win situation is the reason why more than 80% of advertisers and 84% of publishers (statistics from the mentioned Forrester Consulting report) choose to participate in some kind of affiliate program.
"News Feed Ads", also called "Sponsored Stories", "Boosted Posts", typically exist on social media platforms that offer a steady stream of information updates ("news feed"[38]) in regulated formats (i.e. in similar sized small boxes with a uniform style). Those advertisements are intertwined with non-promoted news that the users are reading through. Those advertisements can be of any content, such as promoting a website, a fan page, an app, or a product.
The best way to think about affiliate marketing is quality over quantity. There are a lot of small websites that will promote your product, but the key is finding a small number of partners that will deliver conversions. For example, an equity management services firm has over 20,000 affiliates in its system, but only about 25 affiliates generate 85 percent of revenue.
This approach differs greatly from less savvy merchants who decide to work directly with networks in markets they do not understand or with agencies who claim to have an international presence without retaining local market knowledge, offices and staff. Merchants who opt for network managed services risk lost time, lost revenue and brand reputation damage if the network is not vigilant in understanding the culture and working with affiliates to ensure they are appropriately advertised. Networks are biased by necessity. Their interest is primarily focused on their own portfolio and recurring revenue streams. This bias can be of detriment to the growth of an affiliate channel poised to expand internationally if opportunities for increased exposure and ad placements through other platforms are ignored in favor of protecting their own bottom line.

As with offline advertising, industry participants have undertaken numerous efforts to self-regulate and develop industry standards or codes of conduct. Several United States advertising industry organizations jointly published Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising based on standards proposed by the FTC in 2009.[109] European ad associations published a similar document in 2011.[110] Primary tenets of both documents include consumer control of data transfer to third parties, data security, and consent for collection of certain health and financial data.[109]:2–4 Neither framework, however, penalizes violators of the codes of conduct.[111]
