How Affiliate Marketing Ruins Your Brand and Why I Don’t Do It

Affiliate marketing is when a content creator attempts to sell a product for a marketer, and when a sale is made, the content creator gets a commission. This is a measurable way marketers can use bloggers or YouTubers to sell their products – because the content creator has an established target audience already in place.

The downside is that affiliate marketing is:

Bad for SEO.

Taints the audience – they get sick of being sold to all the time.

Makes the content creator look sleazy and only about the money.

I totally agree, with what you are saying, why should you let someone else piggy back off your hard work, I used to internet marketing, only thing was by the time I got the information every man and his dog already had it.
In your case I think they just trying to jump on your band wagon or ride your wave or any other way you want to put it.
I really enjoy your videos and appreciate the information I get and the time and effort you put into them.
