Affiliate marketing

Affiliate marketing is a marketing practice in which a business rewards  affiliate(s) for each visitor or customer brought about in  by the affiliate's marketing efforts. e.g. Ecommerce,  rewards sites, where users are rewarded with cash or gifts, for the completion of an offer, and the referral of others to the site. 
The industry has four players: 

  1. The 'Retailer' or 'Brand' (merchant ), 
  2. The network,
  3. The publisher (also known as 'the affiliate') and
  4. The customer.

The market has grown in complexity to warrant a secondary tier of players, including affiliate management agencies, super-affiliates and specialized third parties vendors.
Affiliate marketing overlaps with other Internet marketing methods to some degree, because affiliates often use regular advertising methods. Those methods include organic search engine optimization, paid search engine marketing, e-mail marketing, and in some sense display advertising. On the other hand, affiliates sometimes use less orthodox techniques, such as publishing reviews of products or services offered by a partner.

Affiliate marketing—using one website to drive traffic to another—is a form of online marketing, which is frequently overlooked by advertisers. While search engines, e-mail, and website syndication capture much of the attention of online retailers, affiliate marketing carries a much lower profile. Still, affiliates continue to play a significant role in e-retailers' marketing strategies.
