Glossary of Affiliate Terms
An affiliate is a person who refers people from their website to Hypnotic World by placing links on their site (which are available once logged into the Hypnotic World Affiliate Area). When a visitor to an affiliate's website clicks on one of the Hypnotic World links, and completes a purchase of particular products on HypnoticWorld.com, the affiliate whose website the visitor clicked the link on earns a commission, depending on the type of the product purchased. Being an affiliate is an easy way to monetize, or generate profit from, their website. Hypnotic World offers over 1000 links for different hypnosis products (e.g. Fear of Flying MP3 download), that make it an ideal website to partner with.
A banner ad is an image which affiliates may place on their web site, promoting Hypnotic World products. You can obtain banners from the Affiliate Area incorporating affiliate tracking code.
Clicks are counted each time a visitor to an affiliate's website clicks on an affiliate link to Hypnotic World that the affiliate has placed there. Tracking code means that the clicks from an affiliate are recorded, and purchases tracked, so that the affiliate can earn commission from such sales.
Click-throughs can be increased by placing more links to Hypnotic World on your website by downloading the HTML code in the Affiliate Area.
A conversion rate is the percentage of users who click on the links of an affiliate's website to Hypnotic World, and complete purchase. For example, if 20 visitors click on a Hypnotic World link, and then of those, 5 complete a purchase, the conversion rate is 5 out of 20 = 25%.
