usually the sales letter sites are products owned by specific people, the affiliate marketing is people who don't actually own the product, but get paid a commission for referring people to those sites. The product owners makes money everytime a sale is made but spends less time promoting their product as their affiliates do that for them.
Most of the time (although not always) the people who own those sales pages also have a website or blog with content updated regularly that they use to funnel traffic to their sales pages.
The fact is that Google really doesn't like the sales pages very much, and they are difficult to rank. also, people are more likely to buy from someone that they know and trust, and building that trust is what keeping an updated blog is all about.
