Jim Kukral was on the scene at Affiliate Summit West 2011, which took place January 9-11, 2011 in Las Vegas, NV to talk to people about the opportunities in the affiliate marketing industry and the Affiliate Summit conference.
Thanks to Jim Kukral, as well as Kim Riedell, Chris Brogan, Rosalind Gardner, and Todd Farmer for helping out.
In the video, Jim explains how an affiliate can be somebody with a website on a topic like a sports team or hobby features relevant ads.
And then when a visitor clicks through to purchase the product being advertised, that website owner earns a percentage of the sale.
It’s old-fashioned commission-based sales with an online twist.
