This blog contains affiliate links, which means that I may earn a commission if you click on a link and make a purchase. This commission comes at no additional cost to you.
I only recommend products that I have used and loved, and I believe will be helpful to my readers. I will never recommend a product that I do not believe in.
DISCLAIMER: At various times I work for Quest Outdoors as an SEO and PPC consultant. They give me the employee discount most of the time, but they do not pay me for links or pay affiliate income. I put these links on the site because I think they have a great Fly Shop and provide great products, information and service.
If you have any questions about this disclosure, please feel free to contact me.
Here is how affiliate programs work:
Sure, here is a description of how affiliate programs work:
An affiliate program is a marketing strategy in which a company (the merchant) partners with an individual or business (the affiliate) to promote the company’s products or services. In exchange for promoting the company’s products or services, the affiliate earns a commission on any sales that are generated as a result of their promotion.
There are two main types of affiliate programs:
- Pay-per-click (PPC) affiliate programs: In a PPC affiliate program, the affiliate earns a commission each time someone clicks on their affiliate link and makes a purchase. The amount of the commission is typically a percentage of the sale price.
- Pay-per-sale (PPS) affiliate programs: In a PPS affiliate program, the affiliate earns a commission each time someone clicks on their affiliate link and makes a purchase. The amount of the commission is typically a fixed amount, regardless of the sale price.
To participate in an affiliate program, the affiliate must first sign up for the program. Once they have signed up, they will be given a unique affiliate link. This link can be used to promote the company’s products or services on their website, blog, social media, or any other platform.
When someone clicks on the affiliate link and makes a purchase, the affiliate will earn a commission. The amount of the commission will be calculated according to the terms of the affiliate program.
