Top 78 Affiliate Marketing Quotes [Amazing Quotes About Affiliate Marketing]

Affiliate marketing is a performance-based marketing method used by more and more companies as a risk-free way to improve brand awareness, traffic and sales. A creator (also called an affiliate) promotes a company and its products with the purpose of generating sales for them. An affiliate then receives a commission on each sale they generate.

The affiliate acts as a kind of intermediary between the product or service and the end customer, but all affiliates use different approaches to create sales.

It can be difficult for a small business to reach new customers. By using an affiliate marketing network, companies can reach audiences in a way that they would not be able to do on their own. Or as they would need many years to do. By working with established target groups in a network and with the publisher’s reach, it becomes easier to generate new sales and brand awareness.

Anyone or any company, regardless of size, who wants to maximize their existing target group or create new revenue streams can become an affiliate. Affiliates may use a website, blog, social media accounts, or other network to encourage the sale of or traffic to a company’s service or product.

Some affiliates see affiliate marketing as a passive source of revenue where they do not need to do more than create the first campaign to generate revenue. This is of course true in some cases, especially if the publishers already have an engaged and dedicated target group. But more commonly, affiliate marketing is something that is constantly evolving. There are always new ways to customize and improve marketing strategies to maximize profits for both the publisher and the advertisers they work with.

Affiliate marketing can be seen as a digital form of the old method of “word of mouth marketing”. A company creates a valuable product and with the help of a new digital platform, an affiliate can tell their network about it (followers, visitors, subscribers or recipients of digital newsletters).

Below, we look closer at some of the top quotes about affiliate marketing from some of the most influential businessmen and affiliate marketers. Some of these quotes are inspirational, others will give you valuable insights into how you can succeed with affiliate marketng and the mindset you should have regarding it.
