When reading about Affiliate marketing, you will notice four terms that are used regularly. They are: Affiliates Networks, Affiliate Programs, Affiliate Merchants and Affiliates. These terms need some clarification to avoid confusion.
Affiliate Networks are conglomerations of Affiliate Programs e.g. Peerfly. They do the same work as Affiliate Programs, but with more options in terms of more products and more leverages as many Affiliate Programs come together to create bigger business opportunity and greater coverage.
Affiliate Programs are consortiums of Affiliate Merchants e.g. ClickBank. They specialize in marketing, providing payment processor and customer service, etc.
Affiliate Merchants are individual product owners – of course in the global (even national) business arena, the rules have it that individuals should conduct their businesses using a Business Name or better still, their Private Companies.
Affiliate Merchants, main focus is product creation for the market. They do market research to know where gap or need exists, and create product to fill up the gap, to fulfill that need.
Affiliates are the Marketers who signup with Affiliate Programs or Affiliate Networks to market products owned by Affiliate Merchants. They specialize in Online Marketing of Digital and other products.
