Pay-for-performance with affiliate marketing you only pay if a certain predetermined action is met. This could be a click-through, revenue or market information. No payment without results.
Low Risk-affiliate marketing is considered very low-risk, because you donít pay if it doesnít work. You donít have to invest capital in a strategy that might not pan out.
Time & Energy
By comparison Social media marketing takes a good deal of time and energy creating new content, replying to comments, and relaying content to different sites.
