    What are you talking about???
    Of course it is a business...
    You can either hire affiliates as part of your company or hire them as independent contractors... either way, they are providing work for your company by generating leads; these leads bring money both to the affiliate and the network and of course great benefits to the advertisers.
    How can it not be a business?

    Yes it is.

    The vast majority of traffic is not coming from single affiliates in their bedrooms etc.

    We have companies pushing well over $300million/year in our space, and guys floated on public stock markets.

    The affiliate business, is any traffic bought on a performance basis.

    This encompasses a huge amount of business.

    Business is:

    if

    [Client Need] => [Supplier Inventory]

    Then

    [Supplier Inventory-1] = [Client Need Filled]

    This can be in the form of widgets of any kind, ads, affiliates, monkeys, and more recently in china cans of fresh air.

    Of course the methods of delivery, the inventory, and the payment, is entirely upto you.

    Yes, definitely. An affiliate business could even be considered a "Web Asset" company. So your business could be owning the advertising properties and websites, and your service is selling the space to the product owners / manufacturers.
