What would happen if you stopped promoting your affiliate links

In most cases, you'd simply stop earning. Your income would stop and the checks would stop coming. Your income is limited by the number of customers you bring to the merchant in a given month.

That means you have to keep marketing your site to bring in new customers. Over, and over, and over again.
