Affiliate marketing has grown quickly since its inception. The e-commerce website, viewed as a marketing toy in the early days of the Internet, became an integrated part of the overall business plan and in some cases grew to a bigger business than the existing offline business. According to one report, the total sales amount generated through affiliate networks in 2006 was £2.16 billion in the United Kingdom alone. The estimates were £1.35 billion in sales in 2005.[19] MarketingSherpa's research team estimated that, in 2006, affiliates worldwide earned US$6.5 billion in bounty and commissions from a variety of sources in retail, personal finance, gaming and gambling, travel, telecom, education, publishing, and forms of lead generation other than contextual advertising programs.[20]
Alors voila, ce genre de sites n’est en aucun cas une perte de temps. J’ai moi-même des filleuls à qui ça permet d’avoir un petit complément de revenus intéressant et je suis moi-même un adepte du web rémunéré depuis maintenant 5 ans. Aujourd’hui je suis également blogueur professionnel, notamment grâce à mes filleuls sur ce genre de site, donc je comprend les réactions mitigés que je peux lire ci-dessus. Le truc, c’est qu’on n’a pas tous envie de créer un blog, ni d’apprendre à bloguer, ni le temps de bloguer, d’ailleurs 99% des blogueurs ne gagneront jamais leur vie grâce à cette activité, et on n’a également pas tous les moyens d’investir.
De plus en plus fatigués du tourisme de masse, beaucoup sont à la recherche d’un tourisme différent, fait d’expériences différentes et originales. Finies les visites de musée à en vomir, vous pouvez proposer une vision différente : par exemple “Les canaux de Paris la nuit” ou “Les alentours d’Aix en Provence chers à Paul Cézanne” ou encore “Baladez-vous en montagne en 2CV”. Les gens sont friands de ces expériences pour ainsi dire uniques. Faites-les rêver.
LinkConnector is something of a mixed bag, so it’s probably best for experienced affiliates who have become disillusioned with other networks and are looking to expand. LinkConnector’s bizarre mix of high-quality products and a low-quality dashboard make it hard to truly assess its viability, but their exclusive deals with some vendors can make it a true home run for publishers working in certain niches.
Some commentators originally suggested that affiliate links work best in the context of the information contained within the website itself. For instance, if a website contains information pertaining to publishing a website, an affiliate link leading to a merchant's internet service provider (ISP) within that website's content would be appropriate. If a website contains information pertaining to sports, an affiliate link leading to a sporting goods website may work well within the context of the articles and information about sports. The goal, in this case, is to publish quality information on the website and provide context-oriented links to related merchant's websites.
LinkConnector has struggled to stand out from the pack but nonetheless has managed to sign some exclusive deals with big name brands, including Writer’s Digest, the Disney Store, Ironman, Hats.com, and Everly. Their strictly controlled screening process for both merchants/advertisers and affiliates/publishers means that you can always rely on the quality of products on offer.
The only difference with the offline middleman and affiliate business program is that the online affiliate does not need to get hold of the actual product to earn revenue. He doesn’t need to shell out money to buy the product that he has to sell. All he has to do is create a site that markets the products of the producer. Every time he makes a sale, the producer will take over to send the actual products, receive payments and extend customer support, when necessary. A special web-based script records this process and thus the affiliate is paid for every successful sale he makes.
