What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing is a referral program where sites pay commissions to affiliates who send traffic to their site that results in a sale.

In our case, Maestro’s affiliates will send customers to rent properties on our marketplace. A percentage of those customers will likely book a property after being referred to our site. And, once they do, our affiliates gets a commission for that sale.

What is an affiliate network?

An affiliate network serves as the intermediary between affiliates and commerce sites. Unlike many other affiliate programs, Maestro manages its own affiliate network, giving us the unique ability to provide partners with the tools, reports, and resources they need to succeed.

A Brief History of Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is one of the earliest forms of performance-based online marketing. In the 90s, at the dawn of the modern Internet, organizations and individuals began creating websites and content. Once search engines made it easier to find and navigate this content, marketing changed forever.

As the world spent more of its time and money online, marketers invented ways to leverage this communication channel, and opportunities for partnerships between website owners began. Content creators developed new ways to monetize their sites, including how to get paid for the exposure they gave merchants in the form of site visitors. Merchants learned how to reach new audiences, but also to pay content creators only when their exposure turned into actual sales.

Online advertising also changed during this time, shifting from businesses paying for a fixed number of ad impressions to models that emphasized higher quality, measurable results.

Each of these events led to the modern state of affiliate marketing.

3. Earning Money

How do affiliates earn money?

Affiliates can be compensated in many ways from commissions on the sale and flat fees paid for the completion of a form, to bonuses paid on the types of visitors you send. Each partnership is different in terms of payout structure and rates.

How does affiliate tracking work?

To track the activity and effectiveness of affiliate marketing, you need two things: an affiliate link and a cookie.

When you promote or send traffic to our site, you’ll use an affiliate link. An affiliate link includes a unique ID that we call a campaign ID. When someone clicks on your affiliate link, the Campaign ID gets stored in a browser cookie on that user’s computer or mobile device. The cookie contains several pieces of information to help us track their activity after they click your link.

Affiliate models

The evolution of the Internet created opportunities for a range of different affiliate partners, from individuals with a Facebook account or Twitter, Instagram or a Blog, to content review sites, deal aggregators, and app developers. As people continue to invent new ways to refer traffic to merchants, new models will surface, but here is a quick list of the current affiliate models that are popular, summarizing the primary promotional method.
