How To Make and Iframe Affiliate Link Open in a New Window

If you are an affiliate of a product that doesn’t pay much but you want to offer it to your audience because it is beneficial to them, the last thing you want to do is have that affiliate link open in the same tab/window whereby making your audience leave your site.
