Un programma di affiliazione efficace è composto da un payout incentivante (distribuzione di utili netti sotto forma di dividendi), da policy restrittive ma tutelanti per i publisher più performanti e da formati creativi accattivanti. Le tipologie di pagamento adottate dalla piattaforma di affiliazione rispettano le caratteristiche del canale promozionale, ovvero esclusivamente a performance e necessitano di un sistema di tracciamento per la tutela del lavoro promozionale fatto dai publisher.

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? Tutto si può fare ma l’importante è che dev’essere conveniente per il publisher.


A browser extension is a plug-in that extends the functionality of a web browser. Some extensions are authored using web technologies such as HTML, JavaScript, and CSS. Most modern web browsers have a whole slew of third-party extensions available for download. In recent years, there has been a constant rise in the number of malicious browser extensions flooding the web. Malicious browser extensions will often appear to be legitimate as they seem to originate from vendor websites and come with glowing customer reviews.[32] In the case of affiliate marketing, these malicious extensions are often used to redirect a user’s browser to send fake clicks to websites that are supposedly part of legitimate affiliate marketing programs. Typically, users are completely unaware this is happening other than their browser performance slowing down. Websites end up paying for fake traffic number, and users are unwitting participants in these ad schemes.
While any “regular” job requires you to be at work to make money, affiliate marketing offers you the ability to make money while you sleep. By investing an initial amount of time into a campaign, you will see continuous returns on that time as consumers purchase the product over the following days and weeks. You receive money for your work long after you’ve finished it. Even when you’re not in front of your computer, your marketing skills will be earning you a steady flow of income.
Iniziò tutto molti anni fa. A dire il vero non ricordo neanche la data esatta. Io e mio fratello ai tempi avevamo acquistato qualche pagina facebook che utilizzavamo per portare traffico ad un nostro blog che trattava tematiche gossip, e che monetizzavamo con circuiti a cpc come google adsense (ai tempi non sapevo di essere già un affiliato e di utilizzare uno dei programmi di affiliazione per blog più famoso al mondo).
Two-tier programs exist in the minority of affiliate programs; most are simply one-tier. Referral programs beyond two-tier resemble multi-level marketing (MLM) or network marketing but are different: Multi-level marketing (MLM) or network marketing associations tend to have more complex commission requirements/qualifications than standard affiliate programs.[citation needed]

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.
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.
Cost per action/sale methods require that referred visitors do more than visit the advertiser's website before the affiliate receives a commission. The advertiser must convert that visitor first. It is in the best interest of the affiliate to send the most closely targeted traffic to the advertiser as possible to increase the chance of a conversion. The risk and loss are shared between the affiliate and the advertiser.

Some merchants run their own (in-house) affiliate programs using dedicated software, while others use third-party intermediaries to track traffic or sales that are referred from affiliates. There are two different types of affiliate management methods used by merchants: standalone software or hosted services, typically called affiliate networks. Payouts to affiliates or publishers can be made by the networks on behalf of the merchant, by the network, consolidated across all merchants where the publisher has a relationship with and earned commissions or directly by the merchant itself.
Websites and services based on Web 2.0 concepts—blogging and interactive online communities, for example—have impacted the affiliate marketing world as well. These platforms allow improved communication between merchants and affiliates. Web 2.0 platforms have also opened affiliate marketing channels to personal bloggers, writers, and independent website owners. Contextual ads allow publishers with lower levels of web traffic to place affiliate ads on websites.[citation needed]
