For online publishers, web developers, digital agencies, there are many promising affiliate programs/partner programs that help monetize while being focused on the core area.
Affiliate programs are a kind of passive association in which you add affiliate links/banners on your website while promoting the same through activities such as blog posts, sharing on social media, and email marketing. Partner programs are closer association in which you actively use and refer clients the product by the partner while getting special benefits from partner such as referral commission, leads from partner’s online directory, badges authenticating you as an approved partner. Often you are the first to avail free partner’s newly launched product/feature. While affiliate commission is usually one time event, commission from a partner program is recurring.
