There are 4 afiliations with 5 ranks each. Each rank consists of 50 levels. Each rank takes the same exact amount of XP to progress through, meaning it takes exactly the same amount of XP to go from level 10 to level 60, and from level 61 to level 110.
You can join the first afiliation of your chosing as early as level 10.Achievement requirement:
To reach rank 5 in any afiliation you need to reach level 60 and rank up, then to level 110 and rank up again, and repeat the process of leveling up and ranking up, until you finally hit level 210 .
Please note that the above explanation only applies if you have chosen one affiliation once you hit level 10, and go through with that same affiliation all the way to level 210 without changing to a different affiliation. (thanks to AP E JC

In order to rank up, you must do it manually. To do this, after hitting the cap level for your current rank, you need to go to "Persona", "Affliiation", and hit "X" to rank up.
Leveling up enables you to rank up. You gain XP by just playing, but there are ways you can speed up the process. Leveling up:
To level up faster my suggestion is to play casual head to head tournaments, preferably the 100 chip table. Going all in pretty much in every hand awards you a quite decent amount of XP which will help you level up. You may want to consider to just call/check if you are dealt something like a 2-5 off to increase your odds, and snap raising all-in when you are dealt any 9 or higher, but that's just my suggestion.Table item boosts, hourly events and daily events:
You can combine this strategy with a table item boost. Table items are less expensive on thursdays, when they are 25% off. You can buy as many as you want on thursdays and use them whenever. Also take a look at the hourly events in which smoke and drink items double your "BONUS XP". (Bonus XP is applied to the boost received from your table item, for example if you apply a +10% table item boost, you will see a +20% when hourly events are running).
Regarding table items, it's worth mentioning that you can use as many times as you want the "REFILL TABLE" action, in which you will refill the table item for the whole table at the cost of a certain amount of chips, rewarding you instantly with some XP.
Chips spent will be immediately deducted from your bankroll.
Both chips spent and XP gained
while using this method are calculated based on how many players have received your gift, EDIT: only chips spent will be always calculated based on the amount of players to a fixed amount of chips per player, while the XP granted will vary widely up to 25k XP per refill, as reported in the comments.
To perform this action, you need to hold RT, and press Y.

Also be sure to check the daily events which award +50% "BASE XP". This extra base XP is applied to your every action in the game when you meet the criteria to receive said XP, and is automaticaly added up to your XP as it is awarded. For example if you perform an action that would normaly net you 100 xp on a regular day, you will be receiving 150 xp on the day you are eligible and participating of a daily event.
You'll want to focus your effort and time specifically on those days, which are:
-tuesdays --> +50% XP for playing tournaments
-wednesdays --> +50% XP for wearing affiliation outfit
-fridays --> +50% XP for wearing tourist outfit
-sundays --> +50% XP for wearing suit/dress outfit

New to prominence are LOOT BOXES:
These boxes contain several bonus items, in which you may also find boosts. You can use boost to multiply all of the XP gained within a period of time. This boost applies to every XP gained, including the daily bonus log in. (thanks to SbN Spacefish
