Dear Heron,

What an affiliate program does is reward individuals
(your affiliates) for sending traffic to your site by
placing a link to you on their web-site or in their

You then reward them by paying the affiliate a
commission on actions resulting from their link
to your site. This commission may be a percentage
of the sale amount or a set dollar figure.

This is an excellent way to increase your traffic
and revenues. Imagine having hundreds, or thousands,
of web-sites and newsletters linking to your site.

Good luck with your affiliate program.
