2. Types of affiliate program
There are different types of earning programs associated with affiliates. Also there are some sites that pays according to lead that you process. For example if a user clicks on link from your site and visits your advertiser’s site and fill some kind of form or register on site. According to per lead processing and on completion of activity they will pay you for per lead that is processed from your site. It is also called as cost per lead affiliate system.
2nd type of affiliate system is way different then cost per lead affiliate. In this when user clicks on your advertiser link then you will get paid according to pay per click just like Google adsense. But in this the amount you get paid for per click will be low. For such type of affiliate program you need tons of visitors to your site to earn good amount of money.
