What is Affiliate Marketing?
According to Wikipedia, affiliate marketing is a type of performance-based marketing in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought by the affiliate’s own marketing efforts. For example, if you register and become an affiliate partner on Amazon, any costumer who clicks the affiliate link given to you by Amazon and buys a product, you may earn some money. Amazon will be the merchandise that pays you a commission.

Other Ways We Generate Money on FMtrendGames
As a site, we do generate money from AdSense and Media.net. This is what we use to keep this site running.
However, apart from affiliate marketing, our authors do make money from their works, such as eBooks and other downloadable files.
If an author chooses to sell an eBooks he created, we will display the product and the price he wishes to sell it. However, we do review the product first to make sure it is valuable and legit – just to prevent piracy. The creator takes 70% of each purchase while we take 30%.
For other downloadable files, you can choose to make them free for everyone by uploading them in your Google Drive, Dropbox, or Zippyshare account. However, in case you want to get some money from your files, you can choose any reputable PPD sites (like usercloud) and upload your files there. Then, you can include the download link of the file in your article.
