I use affiliate marketing links on this blog sometimes. In the event of you having clicked one of these links and made a purchase on the website the link took you to afterwards, I will earn a commission for having brought the merchant a sale.
What is affiliate marketing?
It’s basically when someone – typically a blogger – promotes a product or service on behalf of a merchant with a view to bringing the merchant a sale. This person is the affiliate.
How does an affiliate promote anything?
With a link on a webpage. This link is the affiliate link. For instance, in a blog post, they may link specific words and when you click on these words, you are redirected to a specific product page on a merchant’s website.
Do affiliates get paid to do this?
Yes. They typically earn a commission when their promoting effort results in a sale.

There will be a note to that effect in the post/on the page where relevant.
