Existem inúmeras vantagens para você trabalhar com marketing de afiliados, mas a principal é que você não tem de se preocupar em criar um produto para vender na internet. Já alguém criou esse produto e você pode se tornar afiliado desse produto, promovendo-o por meio de links de afiliado e enviando tráfego através desses links para esse mesmo produto. A partir desse momento, sua responsabilidade termina. O produtor, ou dono do produto, passa a ser a pessoa responsável por enviar a mercadoria para o comprador e manter esse cliente satisfeito. Você receberá uma comissão por ter gerado essa venda, mas não é responsável por absolutamente mais nada.
