Wait, is this a misnomer? If you've already read around the site you understand that we don't run our own affiliate program, but rather, promote other programs. The fact of the matter is, this entire site exists because we are affiliates of the affiliate programs we promote. These programs offer multiple tiers, so that if you also sign up for them, via a link on this site, you are associated with us in the affiliate program. When you earn money, the program pays you the same way it would pay anyone if they were directly earning, but it also pays us a small percentage because of the fact that we directed you to their program initially. In this way, each of the programs promoted on this site can be said to be our affiliate program.
This concept is known as multi-level marketing, or tiered marketing. In much the same way Amway builds a pyramid of sellers, and then those near the top of the pyramid simply live off of the residual earnings of the sellers below them, affiliate partners can earn the same way. If you sign up as an affiliate for Golden Palace Affiliates you can also sign up sub-affiliates underneath you and earn from their promotion.
We cover the concept of multi-level marketing in more depth in our Internet marketing section, so if you are weary of participating in an MLM program because you fear it is too much like a pyramid scheme, please read our notes first. The modern, Internet based form of these marketing programs are not dependent upon the levels themselves to produce profit, and therefore do not suffer the same ill fate as pyramid programs. This is just marketing where you can have two levels below you. You cannot have infinite levels below you, just two.
