After spending over a decade in the Internet marketing industry, I think I often forget – and have failed to address – the most obvious question most folks new to the industry have about affiliate marketing.
When I appeared as a guest on Weapons of Mass Marketing earlier this week to discuss the topic of marketing affiliate programs, the hosts evidenced the importance of the often overlooked question by leading off their interview with a variation of it…
“How does affiliate marketing work?”
No numbers, no statistics, no data visualizations. This infographic is visualizing a process, and I do many of these for clients. Business processes, strategies, workflows, business models, flow charts and explanations of how things work.
In this case, characters on a simple path visualizes a process of 10 steps. Way more interesting than a text numbered list in a blog post don’t you think?
