What is a digital sales force?

To explain it fast and easy a digital sales force is a bunch of media that promote your products in order to make a commission. In the digital marketing world this is called affiliate marketing. 

The purpose of affiliate marketing is to create a large community of different media that promote your products in order to sell. The community can consist of thousands of media that on a regular basis do promotion for you. You incentivize your community by giving them a commission. 

Examples of media can be influencers, magazines, websites or apps.
