Mobile affiliate marketing on mobile is a relatively new development, online, affiliate marketing is a huge business generating billions in revenue. Historically, mobile advertising has focused on CPC or CPM based advertising – mobile affiliate marketing pays on the basis of CPA or Pay Per lead. This can be very profitable if you find traffic that converts well – for example, you can easily get $5.00 for some programs for each registration, compared to a few cents for a click if you are using a mobile ad network like admob to make money from your mobile traffic.
