Affiliates Programs Started
The concept of affiliate marketing on the Internet was developed
and patented by William J. Tobin, the founder of PC Flowers & Gifts.
Launched on the Prodigy Network in 1989, PC Flowers & Gifts remained on the
service until 1996. Then By 1993, PC Flowers & Gifts generated sales in
excess of $6 million per year on the Prodigy service. In 1998, PC Flowers and
Gifts started to develop a business model by paying a commission on sales to
The Prodigy network.
In 1994, Tobin launched a beta version of PC Flowers &
Gifts on the Internet in cooperation with IBM, who owned half of Prodigy; check

launched a commercial version of the website and had more over 2000 affiliate
marketing partners on the World Wide Web. Tobin applied for a patent on
tracking and affiliate marketing on January 22, 1996 and he was issued U.S.
Patent number 6,141,666 on Oct 31, 2000. He also received Japanese Patent

albums for their visitors that might be interested in purchasing. They started
to offer links directly and offering to purchase albums. This idea was
developed through the purchasing from the conversations with music label Geffen
Records in the fall of 1994. Geffen realized that CDNOW could link
directly from the artist on its website to Geffen's website, bypassing the
CDNOW home page and going directly to an artist's music page.
Then Amazon.com (Amazon) launched its associate program in
July 1996: This program placed banner or text links on their site for
individual books, or link directly to the Amazon home page.
