Targeting, viewability, brand safety and invalid traffic: Targeting, viewability, brand safety and invalid traffic all are aspects used by marketers to help advocate digital advertising. Cookies are a form of digital advertising, which are tracking tools within desktop devices; causing difficulty, with shortcomings including deletion by web browsers, the inability to sort between multiple users of a device, inaccurate estimates for unique visitors, overstating reach, understanding frequency, problems with ad servers, which cannot distinguish between when cookies have been deleted and when consumers have not previously been exposed to an ad. Due to the inaccuracies influenced by cookies, demographics in the target market are low and vary (Whiteside, 2016).[42] Another element, which is affected within digital marketing, is ‘viewabilty’ or whether the ad was actually seen by the consumer. Many ads are not seen by a consumer and may never reach the right demographic segment. Brand safety is another issue of whether or not the ad was produced in the context of being unethical or having offensive content. Recognizing fraud when an ad is exposed is another challenge marketers face. This relates to invalid traffic as premium sites are more effective at detecting fraudulent traffic, although non-premium sites are more so the problem (Whiteside, 2016).[42]

Os e-auctions, normalmente, são leilões directos, em que alguém oferece produtos ou serviços a utilizadores que licitam de forma ascendente (versão inglesa) ou descendente (versão alemã). No entanto os leilões que mais interessam para as empresas, não são os directos, são os leilões invertidos. Num “reverse e-auction” leilão invertido as empresas adquirem produtos ou serviços num concurso público fechado (quantidade e especificações) em que teoricamente vence a melhor oferta, não apenas no preço mas também com as melhores condições comerciais (nem sempre a oferta de preço mais baixo ganha os contratos). Um exemplo de sucesso da utilização de e-auctions é o da British Airways, que em 2005 poupou 300 milhões de libras pela utilização de e-auctions, no entanto, a vantagem de usar os e-auction não reside apenas nos custos, pois, também permite determinar a estrutura de preços da concorrência, através da análise das suas licitações.
Establishment of customer exclusivity: A list of customers and customer's details should be kept on a database for follow up and selected customers can be sent selected offers and promotions of deals related to the customer's previous buyer behaviour. This is effective in digital marketing as it allows organisations to build up loyalty over email.[22]
"If I haven't told you already, your team of people are the Bomb! When I came to you I told you I was very reluctant about hiring a Search Engine Optimization firm because I was ripped off and sold a bunch of promises in the past-all of which failed. I honestly was still a skeptic until recently. We have gone from off the map for my two major keywords to the top twenty in 5 months so far. I have all the confidence that you can get me in the top ten! A special thanks goes to your optimization expert who has handled my demands for constant changes with such professionalism. I would highly recommend you to anyone who wants to be in the top of their field on the web. (Except any of my competitors !!!)" Randy W.
A strategy that is linked into the effectiveness of digital marketing is content marketing.[39] Content marketing can be briefly described as "delivering the content that your audience is seeking in the places that they are searching for it".[39] It is found that content marketing is highly present in digital marketing and becomes highly successful when content marketing is involved.

Se um determinado programa de afiliados está rendendo uma boa grana, isso não significa que você não pode testar outras ofertas. Na realidade, testar é importantíssimo em tudo o que tenha a ver com marketing digital; e o marketing de afiliados não é diferente. Procure escolher entre três e quatro programas de afiliados para promover, fazendo sempre testes de conversão com cada um deles.
Two other practical limitations can be seen in the case of digital marketing. One,digital marketing is useful for specific categories of products,meaning only consumer goods can be propagated through digital channels.Industrial goods and pharmaceutical products can not be marketed through digital channels. Secondly, digital marketing disseminates only the information to the prospects most of whom do not have the purchasing authority/power. And hence the reflection of digital marketing into real sales volume is skeptical.[citation needed]

The development of digital marketing is inseparable from technology development. One of the key points in the start of was in 1971, where Ray Tomlinson sent the very first email and his technology set the platform to allow people to send and receive files through different machines.[8] However, the more recognisable period as being the start of Digital Marketing is 1990 as this was where the Archie search engine was created as an index for FTP sites. In the 1980s, the storage capacity of computer was already big enough to store huge volumes of customer information. Companies started choosing online techniques, such as database marketing, rather than limited list broker.[9] This kind of databases allowed companies to track customers' information more effectively, thus transforming the relationship between buyer and seller. However, the manual process was not so efficient.

Affiliate marketing - Affiliate marketing is perceived to not be considered a safe, reliable and easy means of marketing through online platform. This is due to a lack of reliability in terms of affiliates that can produce the demanded number of new customers. As a result of this risk and bad affiliates it leaves the brand prone to exploitation in terms of claiming commission that isn't honestly acquired. Legal means may offer some protection against this, yet there are limitations in recovering any losses or investment. Despite this, affiliate marketing allows the brand to market towards smaller publishers, and websites with smaller traffic. Brands that choose to use this marketing often should beware of such risks involved and look to associate with affiliates in which rules are laid down between the parties involved to assure and minimize the risk involved.[47]
As redes de contactos profissionais, cujo exemplo mais famoso costumava ser LinkedIn e Plaxo, são uma das várias redes sociais, como o Archifamous, MySpace e o Facebook. As redes sociais de lazer foram os primeiros a aparecer e uma vez que o seu poder de comunicação foi clara, a comunicação empresarial não demorou muito a tentar tirar vantagem deste potencial e as redes de contactos profissionais nasceram. Estas redes de contactos profissionais trabalham num link baseado num convite, interligando todos os contactos profissionais numa única conta. Desta forma, poderá surgir um variado número de negócios, que não foram visíveis no mundo off-line, através do contacto profissional retirado dessa única conta (pode ser um cliente, fornecedor, distribuidor, etc.).

Ao contrário do que muitos afiliados acham, anúncios também precisam ser relevantes para o seu público-alvo. Existem imensos afiliados que promovem produtos através de anúncios de Facebook, Google AdWords e native ads, sem se preocuparem minimamente com a relevância do produto para o público-alvo. Muitos deles utilizam inclusive estratégias de copywriting com o objetivo de enganar esse público e levá-lo a clicar nos anúncios.

Além de poder divulgar diretamente em seu perfil produtos ou serviços que você oferece, também existem aplicativos que podem instalar uma loja dentro de seu perfil e programas de afiliados que postarão anúncios em sua página, sendo que você será remunerado quando alguém clicar nestes anúncios e poderá ganhar ainda mais caso efetuem alguma compra após ter realizado esse clique.

"Jim, thanks for the great work. You and your team have been great and we are very happy with the results. Because of this, I wanted to give you a testimonial that you can share. On a nice spring day about a year ago, our site took a nose dive in the rankings on some of our most valuable keywords. I franticly begun searching SEO forums for the best people and ways to get us back to the top and I came a across Jim and his team. Jim was one of the most highly recommended link building Guru's out there, so I called Ninjas. To my surprise they couldn't take my money right away because they were busy working on other client accounts. They were very polite and explained that if they were to take my money that would have meant they could not spend the time they needed to spend on their client's accounts. Right there I knew these guys were for real. Biting my nails and pulling my hair, I patiently waited for two months so they could start working on my account and boy was I soooooo glad that I did. I finally got to speak with Jim, who is an awesome guy with a great sense of humor. I could say the same thing about my account manager and all of the Ninja team. After this meeting the work begun and the rest is history. I would highly recommend Jim Boykin and his team to anyone, even though part of me wants to keep them to myself. However I know they would not take on more than they can handle, unless they know they can put in the time needed to deliver results." Eric K.
A ideia de criar um blog era para mim um "bicho de sete cabeças". Isso dos blog é para os "geeks", cibernautas que não têm mais nada que fazer que estar agarrado a um laptop o dia inteiro - pensava eu. Agora estou aqui entretida de volta desta ferramenta fabulosa do Blogger, deliciada a ver o resultado final desta minha arte cibernáutica, e a querer escrever mais e mais. A internet é de facto um mundo, há de tudo, para tudo, para todos, como a diz a minha mãe: "nem sei o que hei-de pesquisar", como se nada interessasse. Mas de facto, o universo Google é uma fonte poderosa, é preciso é saber tirar o melhor partido da informação, mas quanto ao Google irei desvendar mais "segredos"...
Criem um email a explicar o produto, porque se deve comprar/adquirir, façam-no de modo a que a pessoa que leia o email se sinta interessada no produto, coloquem algumas imagens ou algum recurso que veja essencial para a venda do mesmo. Depois é so enviar a todos os seus amigos, e se com alguma confiança em alguns, peça para estes enviarem para os seus amigos também.

Understanding Mobiles: Understanding mobile devices is a significant aspect of digital marketing because smartphones and tablets are now responsible for 64% of the time US consumers are online (Whiteside, 2016).[42] Apps provide a big opportunity as well as challenge for the marketers because firstly the app needs to be downloaded and secondly the person needs to actually use it. This may be difficult as ‘half the time spent on smartphone apps occurs on the individuals single most used app, and almost 85% of their time on the top four rated apps’ (Whiteside, 2016).[42] Mobile advertising can assist in achieving a variety of commercial objectives and it is effective due to taking over the entire screen, and voice or status is likely to be considered highly; although the message must not be seen or thought of as intrusive (Whiteside, 2016).[42] Disadvantages of digital media used on mobile devices also include limited creative capabilities, and reach. Although there are many positive aspects including the users entitlement to select product information, digital media creating a flexible message platform and there is potential for direct selling (Belch & Belch, 2012).[44]

In-game advertising - In-Game advertising is defined as "inclusion of products or brands within a digital game."[49] The game allows brands or products to place ads within their game, either in a subtle manner or in the form of an advertisement banner. There are many factors that exist in whether brands are successful in their advertising of their brand/product, these being: Type of game, technical platform, 3-D and 4-D technology, game genre, congruity of brand and game, prominence of advertising within the game. Individual factors consist of attitudes towards placement advertisements, game involvement, product involvement, flow or entertainment. The attitude towards the advertising also takes into account not only the message shown but also the attitude towards the game. Dependent of how enjoyable the game is will determine how the brand is perceived, meaning if the game isn't very enjoyable the consumer may subconsciously have a negative attitude towards the brand/product being advertised. In terms of Integrated Marketing Communication "integration of advertising in digital games into the general advertising, communication, and marketing strategy of the firm"[49] is an important as it results in a more clarity about the brand/product and creates a larger overall effect.


O mercado de marketing de afiliados é, na verdade, uma oportunidade tremenda para ganhar dinheiro na internet e continuará sendo durante muitos e longos anos. No entanto, e tal como acontece em outros mercados, existem profissionais que fazem as coisas do jeito certo e profissionais que fazem as coisas do jeito errado. Você precisará entender primeiro como tudo isso funciona e quais são as suas possibilidades, de modo a tentar extrair o máximo potencial dos seus projetos. Outra coisa importante é que marketing de afiliados não tem nada a ver com marketing multinível; são dois mercados totalmente diferentes.
