Posted on June 29, 2009 by SHASHANK SHEKHAR

Affiliate Marketing is an online marketing system in which a business payment one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought about by the affiliate’s marketing efforts.The idea of revenue sharing—paying commission for referred business—exist before affiliate marketing and the Internet. The conversion of the revenue share principles to mainstream e-commerce occurred almost four years after the origination of the World Wide Web in November 1994.The agreement of marketers and adult industry insiders is that Cybererotica was either the first or among the early innovators in affiliate marketing with a cost per click program. During November 1994, CDNOW released its BuyWeb program. With this program CDNOW was the first non-adult website to launch the concept of an affiliate or associate program with its idea of click-through purchasing. CDNOW had the concept that music-oriented websites could review or list albums on their pages that their visitors may be interested in buying. These websites could also propose a link that would take the visitor directly to CDNOW to purchase the albums.
