Unlimited possibilities for partnerships

When starting with affiliate marketing, it’s important to note that partnerships aren’t limited to specific affiliate agencies. If you can find a partner that is willing to work for your product or service in exchange for a commission, nothing can stop you from making an affiliate agreement with them.
