Se sei appena agli inizi, la creazione di un forte tasso di commissione ha maggiori probabilità di attirare affiliati di qualità. Un altro tendenza di marketing di affiliazione è quello di controllare i concorrenti nella tua nicchia e lanciare il tuo programma con le commissioni più forti che puoi permetterti di pagare. È inoltre possibile creare strutture di commissione personalizzate per diversi affiliati in quanto non si è bloccati solo utilizzando la propria offerta pubblica.
All’interno delle caratteristiche dell’Affiliate Marketing, il concetto di intermediazione come standard funziona così nella maggioranza dei casi: fatto un ricavo, l’inserzionista offre al publisher il 70% della commissione. Il 30% della commissione spetta alla piattaforma di affiliazione. Facendo un esempio in cifre, se stabilisco come inserzionista che per ogni 100€ che ricavo grazie a questa attività di marketing dovrò dare a questo sistema di affiliazione, formato dalla piattaforma e dai publisher, 10€ ogni 100€, darò 7€ al publisher e 3€ alla piattaforma.
Many affiliate programs run with last-click attribution, where the affiliate receiving the last click before the sale gets 100% credit for the conversion. This is changing. With affiliate platforms providing new attribution models and reporting features, you are able to see a full-funnel, cross-channel view of how individual marketing tactics are working together. For example, you might see that a paid social campaign generated the first click, Affiliate X got click 2, and Affiliate Y got the last click. With this full picture, you can structure your affiliate commissions so that Affiliate X gets a percentage of the credit for the sale, even though they didn’t get the last click.
Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. If you only promote one merchant’s products, you are stuck with their commissions, their landing pages, and ultimately, their conversion rates. It is important to work with many different merchants in your niche and promote a wide range of products. This affiliate marketing strategy will diversify the amount of commissions you make and create a steady stream of revenue when building an affiliate website.
L’Affiliate Marketing o Performance Marketing è un elemento che non si può sottovalutare se vogliamo ottenere risultati dal digital marketing. Tra tutti i canali disponibili l’Affiliate Marketing spicca perché si tratta del canale a performance tra i più noti e il marketing di affiliazione rappresenta una nuova forma, nata online, di marketing digitale di grande successo. Essendo un canale potente, molto diffuso ma anche piuttosto complesso nel suo genere, è necessario innanzitutto definire i propri obiettivi, documentarsi adeguatamente prima di spenderci soldi e infine decidere la migliore strategia più adatta al nostro business sfruttando al meglio la forza del mezzo.
Si adotta quando l’obiettivo del cliente è generare un contatto da trasformare in un secondo momento in un cliente; il CPL è calcolato dal cliente in base al lifetime value dell’utente, al valore medio del utente convertito e al proprio costo interno di conversione (CRM, call center etc.). Il modello di share della commissione fra publisher e network non cambia (30% / 70%). Criticità: modello molto esposto alle fake conversion.
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.
Affiliates discussed the issues in Internet forums and began to organize their efforts. They believed that the best way to address the problem was to discourage merchants from advertising via adware. Merchants that were either indifferent to or supportive of adware were exposed by affiliates, thus damaging those merchants' reputations and tarnishing their affiliate marketing efforts. Many affiliates either terminated the use of such merchants or switched to a competitor's affiliate program. Eventually, affiliate networks were also forced by merchants and affiliates to take a stand and ban certain adware publishers from their network. The result was Code of Conduct by Commission Junction/beFree and Performics, LinkShare's Anti-Predatory Advertising Addendum, and ShareASale's complete ban of software applications as a medium for affiliates to promote advertiser offers. Regardless of the progress made, adware continues to be an issue, as demonstrated by the class action lawsuit against ValueClick and its daughter company Commission Junction filed on April 20, 2007.
There is no shortage of products you’ll be able to promote. You’ll have the ability to pick and choose products that you personally believe in, so make sure that your campaigns center around truly valuable products that consumers will enjoy. You’ll achieve an impressive conversion rate while simultaneously establishing the reliability of your personal brand.
Websites consisting mostly of affiliate links have previously held a negative reputation for underdelivering quality content. In 2005 there were active changes made by Google, where certain websites were labeled as "thin affiliates". Such websites were either removed from Google's index or were relocated within the results page (i.e., moved from the top-most results to a lower position). To avoid this categorization, affiliate marketer webmasters must create quality content on their websites that distinguishes their work from the work of spammers or banner farms, which only contain links leading to merchant sites.
