Très souvent, les personnes et les sites qui vous promettent de gagner autant d’argent se rémunèrent en commissions sur les inscriptions aux offres qu’ils encouragent. Cela s’appelle l’affiliation. En vous faisant miroiter de jolis gains en très peu de temps, ils s’assurent que vous allez vous inscrire au site ou à l’offre révolutionnaire, et voilà, le tour est joué et l’argent est dans la poche. Leur poche, pas la vôtre. Sinon c’est pas drôle.
As Target is the second-largest general retailer in the United States, their affiliate program is primarily for American bloggers or publishers who can route visitors to relevant products. Overall, the program works much like Amazon’s does in that publishers (bloggers) get a small commission on sales, but Target’s gigantic product base (over one million items) and high brand recognition make their affiliate program a great option for influencers.
That being said, LinkConnector’s platform looks and feels outdated and is rather clumsily designed. Their dashboard also makes it difficult to find “hot” products or compare conversion rates, leaving affiliates somewhat in the dark about which products to choose. Ironically, despite their low-quality website, they offer some of the best customer service in the affiliate space.
The only difference with the offline middleman and affiliate business program is that the online affiliate does not need to get hold of the actual product to earn revenue. He doesn’t need to shell out money to buy the product that he has to sell. All he has to do is create a site that markets the products of the producer. Every time he makes a sale, the producer will take over to send the actual products, receive payments and extend customer support, when necessary. A special web-based script records this process and thus the affiliate is paid for every successful sale he makes.
