Review on The Tarnished Crown Of Affiliate MarketingAffiliate Marketing was not out of the Internet Start Gate long before it acquired the reputation of being sleazy, irresponsible and unsavory.
It was a natural phenomenon when the Internet opened it's door for business. Advertising was promoted as being the most simple action that could happen now. Find a content web site, load it with a trackable link which lead to an order form and bingo-bango a sale.
No one foresaw a quirk in some people's personality. We learned that if there was no direct contact with the customer, at least perceived by the affiliate they were disrespectful of people's intelligence and over promising results, products or whatever they were up to. Many of them had no control of fulfillment of the order and when sales went sideways so did the affiliate.
Today 55% of viewers visiting a content site are new viewers to that product. Content is the highest new viewer source of all the available venues. You would never know this by our pay checks. Content sites only realize 6% of the final clicks on the market.
Online shopping is huge. Statistics now show that customers are spending more money online than in-person. Not only are they doing more shopping on line, Juniper Research reports the online shopper spends more than the average in-store consumer.
There is an alternative way to do affiliate marketing if you have content websites, blogs, newsletter - any content matter regardless of what you call them.
This Company has proven themselves and they now represent over 17,000 vendors like Amazon and Walmart and ALSO almost 50 Affiliate Marketing Suppliers (the guys that marry the Vendors with the Affiliates). You put a tracking code on each web page that has product and they take over. It doesn't matter who you chose to write about, just name the Company, like Hostgator (yes, they are involved with them too) and this Company will track the prospect and go after the commission for you and pay you directly.
