A relative newcomer that was only founded in 2014, ConvertKit has taken the world of email marketing by storm. According to the company, they now have nearly 20,000 active customers of their email services. Their affiliate program works by paying existing customers a lifetime 30 percent commission for referrals that subsequently become ConvertKit customers or who sign up for ConvertKit webinars and other digital products.
Affiliate marketing overlaps with other Internet marketing methods to some degree, because affiliates often use regular advertising methods. Those methods include organic search engine optimization (SEO), paid search engine marketing (PPC – Pay Per Click), e-mail marketing, content marketing, and (in some sense) display advertising. On the other hand, affiliates sometimes use less orthodox techniques, such as publishing reviews of products or services offered by a partner.
Commission Junction est un important réseau de marketing d’affiliation fondé en Californie, en 1998. Lexmark, Reebok, Best Western, Godaddy, Adobe et Expedia font tous partie de la longue liste des annonceurs de Commission Junction. Commission Junction est assurément un bon endroit pour commencer en tant qu’affilié. Vous pouvez choisir parmi des milliers de produits d’annonceurs populaires. Cependant, si vous avez qu’un ebook à vendre, Commission Junction n’est probablement pas le bon endroit pour devenir annonceur.
The only difference with the offline middleman and affiliate business program is that the online affiliate does not need to get hold of the actual product to earn revenue. He doesn’t need to shell out money to buy the product that he has to sell. All he has to do is create a site that markets the products of the producer. Every time he makes a sale, the producer will take over to send the actual products, receive payments and extend customer support, when necessary. A special web-based script records this process and thus the affiliate is paid for every successful sale he makes.
