What Is Skimlinks and How Does it work?
Skimlinks.com is an affiliate “aggregator” where they centralize many networks into one place. They make it easy to be part of many affiliate programs (Nordstrom, Shopbop, Macys, Kohls, etc) in one place. Altenatively some publishers apply to Linkshare and then request to be part of each individual account. This is ideal for very large publishers that negotiate specific affiliate percentage agreements for each company they work with.
For Small to Medium sized publishers, it is much easier to be part of one bigger group of affiliate marketing opportunities.
