Text link ads

Sell others’ product
Affiliate programs allow bloggers to serve as a medium between readers and online sites. As an example, a blogger is offering some product ad in his blog. By clicking on the ad the audience can go directly to the affiliated site for more information about the product. Firstly the blogger has to choose a product which he wants to sell, then he gets the link.
This link will allow the advertisers to know that the blogger is affiliate and to put the commission on the blogger’s account. In this type of marketing there are some advantages.
