Affiliate marketers are essentially online advertising sales agents who work for themselves. Rather than selling ad space in newspapers and magazines, affiliate marketers create content filled websites with the express purpose of placing affiliate ads on their pages. Affiliate marketers build websites and employ search engine optimization (SEO) techniques to promote traffic and clicks on the ads.
