When beginning your affiliate marketing career, you’ll want to cultivate an audience that has very specific interests. This allows you to tailor your affiliate campaigns to that niche, increasing the likelihood that you’ll convert. By establishing yourself as an expert in one area instead of promoting a large array of products, you’ll be able to market to the people most likely to buy the product.


As search engines have become more prominent, some affiliate marketers have shifted from sending e-mail spam to creating automatically generated web pages that often contain product data feeds provided by merchants. The goal of such web pages is to manipulate the relevancy or prominence of resources indexed by a search engine, also known as spamdexing. Each page can be targeted to a different niche market through the use of specific keywords, with the result being a skewed form of search engine optimization.
In the case of cost per mille/click, the publisher is not concerned about whether a visitor is a member of the audience that the advertiser tries to attract and is able to convert, because at this point the publisher has already earned his commission. This leaves the greater, and, in case of cost per mille, the full risk and loss (if the visitor cannot be converted) to the advertiser.
The seller, whether a solo entrepreneur or large enterprise, is a vendor, merchant, product creator, or retailer with a product to market. The product can be a physical object, like household goods, or a service, like makeup tutorials. Also known as the brand, the seller does not need to be actively involved in the marketing, but they may also be the advertiser and profit from the revenue sharing associated with affiliate marketing.

Soffermiamoci per un attimo sull’1% di diffusione dell’Affiliate Marketing e proviamo a fare un esempio per capire meglio il concetto. Immaginiamoci di spendere 1000€ in pubblicità: 990€ ci portano 5000€, ovvero il 500%; quell’1% mancante ovvero 10€, da solo ci fa guadagnare altri 500€. Quindi il 10% del nostro ricarico è portato da quell’1% in Affiliate Marketing. Tirando le somme, in questo modo siamo riusciti a costruire un solido sistema di digital marketing con i nostri 990€; essi hanno correttamente fertilizzato quell’ultimo euro che, pagato da noi solamente a risultati ottenuti, ci ha riportato a casa un ulteriore 10% di ritorno sull’investimento.
While these models have diminished in mature e-commerce and online advertising markets they are still prevalent in some more nascent industries. China is one example where Affiliate Marketing does not overtly resemble the same model in the West. With many affiliates being paid a flat "Cost Per Day" with some networks offering Cost Per Click or CPM.

However, affiliate marketing can be done at a low cost, meaning you can get started quickly and without much hassle.

The phrase, "Affiliates are an extended sales force for your business", which is often used to explain affiliate marketing, is not completely accurate. The primary difference between the two is that affiliate marketers provide little if any influence on a possible prospect in the conversion process once that prospect is directed to the advertiser's website. The sales team of the advertiser, however, does have the control and influence up to the point where the prospect either a) signs the contract, or b) completes the purchase.
Si è attivato un meccanismo tecnologico per cui il sito dell’inserzionista ha chiamato la piattaforma di affiliazione, che ha intercettato il tipo di vendita marcandola come effettuata grazie ad un click proveniente da un suo publisher o inserzionista. In questo caso scatta la notifica di pagamento per la buona riuscita della transazione secondo le commissioni pattuite.
Some advertisers offer multi-tier programs that distribute commission into a hierarchical referral network of sign-ups and sub-partners. In practical terms, publisher "A" signs up to the program with an advertiser and gets rewarded for the agreed activity conducted by a referred visitor. If publisher "A" attracts publishers "B" and "C" to sign up for the same program using his sign-up code, all future activities performed by publishers "B" and "C" will result in additional commission (at a lower rate) for publisher "A".
Il rapporto di affiliazione è un rapporto cosiddetto win-win: io inserzionista devo fare della pubblicità per promuovere un prodotto/servizio, per far fare un acquisto, per far registrare qualcuno al mio sito. Io publisher devo erogare pubblicità quindi se ho fatto fare l’azione all’utente, ho vinto: perché tu mi pagherai una commissione. Io inserzionista se sono riuscito a far fare l’azione ho vinto, perché ne ho un ritorno economico. Ovviamente un ROI lo avrà anche la piattaforma di affiliazione facente da intermediario.
Forms of new media have also diversified how companies, brands, and ad networks serve ads to visitors. For instance, YouTube allows video-makers to embed advertisements through Google's affiliate network.[22][23] New developments have made it more difficult for unscrupulous affiliates to make money. Emerging black sheep are detected and made known to the affiliate marketing community with much greater speed and efficiency.[citation needed]
