In the 1990s, the term Digital Marketing was first coined,.[10] With the debut of server/client architecture and the popularity of personal computers, the Customer Relationship Management (CRM) applications became a significant part of marketing technology.[citation needed] Fierce competition forced vendors to include more service into their software, for example, marketing, sales and service applications. Marketers were also able to own huge online customer data by eCRM software after the Internet was born. Companies could update the data of customer needs and obtain the priorities of their experience. This led to the first clickable banner ad being going live in 1994, which was the "You Will" campaign by AT&T and over the first four months of it going live, 44% of all people who saw it clicked on the ad.[11]
Dentre as várias vantagens de trabalhar com marketing de afiliados, diria que a mais interessante é o potencial de rentabilização desse mercado. Existem produtos que pagam comissões altíssimas, recorrentes, por clique, por venda, por impressão, etc. Existem também afiliados que trabalham na divulgação desses produtos através de plataformas de publicidade e outros que aproveitam os programas de afiliados como forma de rentabilizar o tráfego dos seus sites e blogs. Ambos os modelos são perfeitamente viáveis e geram resultados.

Normalmente, as campanhas ao clique são utilizadas por empresas de grande porte que procuram tráfego indiferenciado para seus sites. Tenha especial atenção ao tipo de regras e tracking que a empresa/anunciante realiza. Por vezes, são apenas contabilizados os cliques unitários e por IP, ou seja, se um mesmo usuário der dois cliques na campanha, você é remunerado apenas por um clique.
The development of digital marketing is inseparable from technology development. One of the key points in the start of was in 1971, where Ray Tomlinson sent the very first email and his technology set the platform to allow people to send and receive files through different machines.[8] However, the more recognisable period as being the start of Digital Marketing is 1990 as this was where the Archie search engine was created as an index for FTP sites. In the 1980s, the storage capacity of computer was already big enough to store huge volumes of customer information. Companies started choosing online techniques, such as database marketing, rather than limited list broker.[9] This kind of databases allowed companies to track customers' information more effectively, thus transforming the relationship between buyer and seller. However, the manual process was not so efficient.
Online reviews, then, have become another form of internet marketing that small businesses can't afford to ignore. While many small businesses think that they can't do anything about online reviews, that's not true. Just by actively encouraging customers to post reviews about their experience small businesses can weight online reviews positively. Sixty-eight percent of consumers left a local business review when asked. So assuming a business's products or services are not subpar, unfair negative reviews will get buried by reviews by happier customers.

Online reviews have become one of the most important components in purchasing decisions by consumers in North America. According to a survey conducted by Dimensional Research which included over 1000 participants, 90% of respondents said that positive online reviews influenced their buying decisions and 94% will use a business with at least four stars. Interestingly, negative reviews typically came from online review sites whereas Facebook was the main source of positive reviews. Forrester Research predicts that by 2020, 42% of in-store sales will be from customers who are influenced by web product research.


"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.

Nesse sentido, é recomendável produzir conteúdo relevante sobre os produtos que você está promovendo em seu site ou blog. Isso significa escrever reviews detalhados sobre esses produtos, indicando os prós e contras dos produtos, as vantagens de usá-los e porque você recomenda esses produtos para o seu público. Esse tipo de recomendação tem um poder incrível junto de um público fortemente engajado.


Na internet, esse modelo de comissão sobre as vendas é chamado de marketing de afiliados ou affiliate marketing (em inglês). O primeiro programa de afiliados na internet foi criado em 1996 pela Amazon e se chamava Amazon Associates. O programa continua existindo até hoje e foi um dos principais propulsores de crescimento da Amazon, uma vez que milhares de afiliados promoviam os produtos da empresa nos Estados Unidos, recebendo uma fatia sobre as vendas. Caso eles não gerassem vendas, a Amazon também não estaria investindo dinheiro nenhum com essa publicidade, uma vez que ela pagaria uma comissão somente por vendas realizadas.
