Affiliate marketing is a marketing approach where other people promote your products and services and in return they receive payment for each sale that are made as a direct result of their efforts. This means that you as the “merchant” can have an army of people promoting your wares without you having to lift a finger. If you’re one of those people promoting the merchant’s products and services i.e an “affiliate” then you don’t even need to have a website to make it a success although it does help. This text book will cover what affiliate marketing is all about and how to make your campaigns a roaring success.

When considering a definition for email marketing, there are a number of ways to define it from the broad to the specific. Essentially, email marketing is the act of sending out emails to customers, both current and prospective. Here are some key components to what a successful email marketing campaign does:
1. Direct Email – Emails are sent directly to current and potential customers | 2. Retention Email – Frequent and regular emails are sent to current customers | 3. Email Placed Ads – Marketing ads are placed within emails sent by others
You can think of these components as analogous to marketing by mail. Emails sent directly to current and potential customers are like flyers and envelopes that fill a mailbox. Frequent and regular emails are like printed newsletters sent to regular and loyal customers. Marketing ads within emails are like marketing ads within a newspaper or magazine.

Essentials of Marketing Research – Part I.
Marketing research is a critical part of marketing decision making; it helps in improving management decision making by providing relevant, accurate, and timely information. Every decision poses unique needs for information, and relevant strategies can be developed based on the information gathered through marketing research in action. Too often, marketing research is considered narrowly as the gathering and analyzing of data for someone else to use. However, firms can actually achieve and sustain a competitive advantage through the creative use of market information generated by marketing research. Hence, marketing research is defined as information input to decisions, not simply the evaluation of decisions that have been made. Market research alone, however, does not guarantee success; the intelligent use of market research is the key to business achievement. A competitive edge is more the result of how information is used than of who does or does not have the information. This free book covers the relevant marketing research issues in a simple and palatable form for the readers to make them engaged in the process of research. I hope you will enjoy reading this book.
