"Jim, thanks for the great work. You and your team have been great and we are very happy with the results. Because of this, I wanted to give you a testimonial that you can share. On a nice spring day about a year ago, our site took a nose dive in the rankings on some of our most valuable keywords. I franticly begun searching SEO forums for the best people and ways to get us back to the top and I came a across Jim and his team. Jim was one of the most highly recommended link building Guru's out there, so I called Ninjas. To my surprise they couldn't take my money right away because they were busy working on other client accounts. They were very polite and explained that if they were to take my money that would have meant they could not spend the time they needed to spend on their client's accounts. Right there I knew these guys were for real. Biting my nails and pulling my hair, I patiently waited for two months so they could start working on my account and boy was I soooooo glad that I did. I finally got to speak with Jim, who is an awesome guy with a great sense of humor. I could say the same thing about my account manager and all of the Ninja team. After this meeting the work begun and the rest is history. I would highly recommend Jim Boykin and his team to anyone, even though part of me wants to keep them to myself. However I know they would not take on more than they can handle, unless they know they can put in the time needed to deliver results." Eric K.
Resumindo, quando você promove um determinado programa de afiliado, você é recompensando por essa promoção de acordo com o que a empresa/anunciante decidiu previamente: clique, ação, lead, mil impressões, formulário ou venda. Para percebermos mais facilmente como funciona cada um desses formatos de publicidade com programas de afiliados, vamos analisar caso-a-caso e dar-lhe alguns exemplos práticos para uma melhor percepção:
To create an effective DMP, a business first needs to review the marketplace and set 'SMART' (Specific, Measurable, Actionable, Relevant and Time-Bound) objectives. They can set SMART objectives by reviewing the current benchmarks and key performance indicators (KPIs) of the company and competitors. It is pertinent that the analytics used for the KPIs be customised to the type, objectives, mission and vision of the company.

Great service deserves recognition and anything I can do to help promote IMN please let me know! Let's kick some ass together this year!" Mark B.
"Jim, Wanted to touch base with you on an update. We should have a better understanding when were starting back up in the next 2-4 weeks. Good news is that it looks like your link building efforts are paying off like we talked about. Over the past 2 days our free google traffic has seen new highs. So we were on a steady down trend for 5 months and over the past 2 weeks we have seen a steady increase to new highs of over that of last summer." Andrew G.
Embora isso possa funcionar numa estratégia de curto prazo, a realidade é que a longo prazo será difícil manter seu negócio funcionando, pela simples razão de que esse afiliado precisará, constantemente, criar novas páginas, novas contas de anúncios e novas formas de divulgar esses produtos. No final, ele não terá absolutamente nada e ficará dependente desses produtos. Não recomendo que você faça isso. Pense numa estratégia de longo prazo, sustentável e com uma comunicação simples, objetiva e relevante para o seu público-alvo.
"Just wanted to say thanks for all the link-building, help, tips and etc that you guys do for me and my site. I greatly appreciate it. My father and I went out to dinner last night and toasted you all. Why? Not only are you nice people, but now our site ranks well for several competitive phrases... If any of you are there (Pubcon conference) as well, I'm buying a round and I hope your livers are in shape. Hope to meet several of you in person." Subbu A.
Concentre-se em pontos importantes de como o seu produto pode tornar a vida e as coisas mais fáceis e mais agradáveis. Incluir títulos atraentes no assunto do e-mail. Tanto quanto possível, evite usar a palavra "livre" porque ainda existem os filtros e as lixeiras que filtram certo tipo de conteúdo para o lixo mesmo antes de que qualquer um consiga lê-los primeiro. Convença aqueles que se inscreveram para os seu relatórios grátis que irá faltar alguma coisa grande, se não disporem dos seus produtos e serviços.
O mercado de marketing de afiliados é, na verdade, uma oportunidade tremenda para ganhar dinheiro na internet e continuará sendo durante muitos e longos anos. No entanto, e tal como acontece em outros mercados, existem profissionais que fazem as coisas do jeito certo e profissionais que fazem as coisas do jeito errado. Você precisará entender primeiro como tudo isso funciona e quais são as suas possibilidades, de modo a tentar extrair o máximo potencial dos seus projetos. Outra coisa importante é que marketing de afiliados não tem nada a ver com marketing multinível; são dois mercados totalmente diferentes.
