Cost per click was more common in the early days of affiliate marketing but has diminished in use over time due to click fraud issues very similar to the click fraud issues modern search engines are facing today.

Si potrebbe pensare: può un inserzionista essere un’azienda normale che vuole far conoscere il suo brand? Forse sì. Per meglio dire può esserlo ma qualcosa lo deve pur remunerare. Vendo qualcosa sul mio sito? Mi devo portare dei clienti a cui devo vendere un servizio? Posso voler far registrare utenti ad una newsletter quindi per acquisire lead?

In the past, large affiliates were the mainstay, as catch-all coupon and media sites gave traffic to hundreds or thousands of advertisers. This is not so much the case anymore. With consumers using long-tail keywords and searching for very specific products and services, influencers can leverage their hyper-focused niche for affiliate marketing success. Influencers may not send advertisers huge amounts of traffic, but the audience they do send is credible, targeted, and has higher conversion rates.

In sostanza, l’Affiliate Marketing è un rapporto in cui non ci si basa sul principio dell’erogazione pubblicitaria, bensì sul rapporto commerciale: io inserzionista faccio diventare i miei publisher la mia forza vendita. Semplificando, io ti do del materiale pubblicitario e tu lo devi pubblicare e vendere al posto mio. Trasportato nel mondo reale è come se ad esempio chiedessi ad alcune persone di fare del volantinaggio per me, assicurandomi che li pagherò per ogni ingresso che avrò nel mio locale. Essendo però il mondo dell’Affiliate Marketing tutto digitale, qui avremo solamente materiali web prettamente tecnici, interamente intermediati dalla tecnologia.
