In effect, VigLink works as the middleman between a publisher (blogger) and merchants by scanning the publisher’s content and automatically creating links to publishers that are chosen “in real time” based on their payout/conversation rates. This makes VigLink a very hands-off affiliate program for publishers who prefer to focus on content instead of managing their affiliate links.

The phrase, "Affiliates are an extended sales force for your business", which is often used to explain affiliate marketing, is not completely accurate. The primary difference between the two is that affiliate marketers provide little if any influence on a possible prospect in the conversion process once that prospect is directed to the advertiser's website. The sales team of the advertiser, however, does have the control and influence up to the point where the prospect either a) signs the contract, or b) completes the purchase.
SkimLinks works very similarly to VigLinks in that it is designed for bloggers who don’t want to do a lot of hands-on work to participate in an affiliate program. SkimLinks also works much like VigLinks in that it uses a plugin or script to create dynamic links in your content to send visitors to higher paying offers from merchants. SkimLinks claims to work with over 24,000 merchants/advertisers.
Affiliate marketing is commonly confused with referral marketing, as both forms of marketing use third parties to drive sales to the retailer. The two forms of marketing are differentiated, however, in how they drive sales, where affiliate marketing relies purely on financial motivations, while referral marketing relies more on trust and personal relationships.[citation needed]
Présentement, je suis éditeur (affilié) de l’annonceur (marchand) Amazon.ca et Amazon.fr. Lorsque je désire faire la promotion d’un produit de Amazon.ca sur mon blogue, j’ouvre tout simplement une session sur Amazon.ca et je recherche le produit que je souhaite promouvoir. Lorsque j’ai trouvé le produit, Amazon génère un lien unique que j’utilise sur mon blogue. Par exemple, dans ce présent billet, je mentionne le logiciel Antidote . Si vous survolez le lien avec votre curseur de souris, vous pourrez voir le lien unique. Si vous cliquiez sur le lien, vous seriez transporté vers le site internet d’Amazon, sur la page du produit en question. Si vous décidiez d’acheter le livre, Amazon me récompenserait en me donnant une commission (autour de 4-5% du prix de vente du bien).
