I like the number, because it’s feasible for new bloggers, even though it may seem daunting if brand new. It’s also enough to start making money, even though it’s small potatoes in the grand scheme of the Internet.
When I first heard about Facebook’s Ad Images Cheat Sheet, I was admittedly a tad nervous because the piece of content that has long been my biggest content driver is an image dimensions infographic. I worried that Facebook did the same — or even improved upon it.
I absolutely see the value in affiliate sales (and Pay Flynn is one of the masters at doing this authentically and openly), but I got really turned off it when I saw a lot of bloggers I read and respect writing junky “How to set up a blog” posts that didn’t seem relevant to their audiences purely so that the could get the sweet Bluehost commissions in.
A wow should come from the heart of every blogger after reading this post. We will expect more masterpieces from you in the future also. It is amazing and very very useful post. This post includes the basic information of affiliate marketing.
As far as the video filming is concerned, you don’t have to spend a lot of money on it. There is no need to hire prestigious actors or rent a fancy studio. A small business can achieve great effects with cool graphic content, which costs much less.
Each time one of your readers clicks on a PPC ad on your site, you get paid. The amount you are paid (CPC, or, the Cost-Per-Click) largely depends on your keywords and how much advertisers are paying for those keywords.
The amount you will be paid for each click would be something between 0.1$ to 5.0$. The money you’ll make would be dependent on the country from which you receive clicks. If you get clicks from countries Like Germany, America, UK the amount would be pretty decent.
Before jumping into starting an affiliate marketing business, learn all that’s involved in making it a success. More importantly, if you decide to pursue an affiliate marketing business, or want to add affiliate marketing to an existing business, understand that it’s not fast, automatic, nor without effort. Like all home businesses, you need a plan and daily involvement to make money with an online affiliate marketing.
The products cost the consumer the same amount of money as it would if they didn’t buy it through your affiliate link, but the merchant pays you a referral fee for generating the sale. For a visual explanation of this process, click here.
Group actions for Carousel ads by each product with actions_breakdown=[‘action_carousel_card_id’, ‘action_carousel_card_name’]. Each child_attachment has a different card ID. action_carousel_card_id and action_carousel_card_name is only for Carousel ads.
No, it is not. I wouldn’t recommend on setting up a company right away as this would cost additional money out of your pocket, and you should be focusing on bringing cash in instead. As your commission grows, then you can start to set up your company.
Do some research and find the campaigns that pay the most. For example, some CPC ads pay $.05 per click while others pay $10 per click. If you capitalize on the bigger ones, you’ll obviously make more.
Hey Chris, great article. I was wondering if you have noticed anything different with your Amazon niche sites since the Google algo change? Have you lost traffic or do you build the sites up so much that they have good content. I’m new at this and would be curious if you think people need to change anything.
All the other gurus would back each other and the novices like you and me, those who lie in bed all day, dreaming of how we could go online and make a very decent income and quit our jobs and take the vacations, get conned by these so called gurus, and money from our wallet (you will notice) will flow to ‘them’ be it in shape of SEO tactics, SEM, back links acquisitions, webpages setup, landing pages sales, mentorships, classes, plug-ins, robots, automated techniques, mailing list magic, 100% sure copy writing services, more secret recipes, analytical tools, more courses, e-books, more reading, the infamous “try harder, don’t give up now” or “shampoo-wash-rinse-repeat” mantras that are constantly pounded into your subliminal mind.

Whatsapp have highest users than any other app in the world. But Whatsapp is getting a big loss. Its revenue is very low. So the conclusion is App business is not profitable? or entire App business is getting a loss?
It’s been a lot of work, as when my article got to page n.1 on Google, my blog was not even 6 months old and had to compete with the top leaders in the industry, but thanks to a good backlink strategy, updating my content regularly and replying to my readers question one by one, I was able to double my income in one year. Without using Adwords or any type of paid advertising.
Choose affiliate items that match your niche or the content on your home business website or blog. For example, if you write about figure skating, affiliate links to motorcycles or a new set of saddlebags won’t do well.
For instance, if you run a brick-and-mortar store, you may want to reach people who live in your community. If you sell how-to books, you can select people with interests that are likely to align with the information that you are providing. To maximize your results, you should consider creating different sets of targeting and then A/B test to see which ones perform the best.
Data science and media technology provider 4C Insights examined the evolution in social advertising spending and found that in 2016, Facebook saw a 74% increase in paid ad spend(1). In 2018, Facebook video is going to be a key component of digital strategy. The aim of Facebook video ads is to help retailers engage customers and drive sales. Facebook is testing a new ad format called lifestyle templates for the Collection ad format (which has been around since March) to help print catalog marketers with “bringing the richness of their catalog creative to mobile.” This ad unit consists of a video on top and four recommended products below(2).
You want to convince the reader to investigate their purchase options by the time they finish reading an article, which is why I’ll always include links to all of the products mentioned in a review at the end of the article. That way it’s an easy transition from learning about the product during your review and then at the end it’s time to make a purchase.
The beauty of making money in affiliate marketing from blogging is that you can write like a dog online and still get hordes of traffic from Bing, Google, and YaHoO, if you do the transformation business work and post fresh content everyday or every other day to your blog w/ affiliate ads around it. The money comes when least expected.
If your performance tracking setup is already good to go, you can now focus on crafting compelling content for your affiliate marketing campaigns. Of course, Rome wasn’t built in a day, and so your affiliate marketing efforts probably won’t yield results right away either.
Perfect thank you 🙂 I’m really hoping to make the little bit of money I need from my blog and really think affiliate marketing is key. I have started but early days and low earnings so need the advice thanks for sharing 🙂
Don’t ignore the potential of Facebook video ads for maximizing your ROI. Now is the perfect time to get started. Hundreds of thousands of people are open to your marketing message, you simply have to build the appealing visual content and make sure it’s delivered to the right Newsfeed.
wow im spending part to full time on my website now, only been running for a month and not yet ranked, but i was just making a target of perhaps £200 a week after the first year, it seems all these figures are just so high to me, are you sure about this
this was simply outstanding article,thank you so much for opening my eyes to the world of amazon affiliate prog, i would surely like to use it the way you say on my beauty blog. But im a bit confused with one thing- contextual linking. how can we do this, i mean for example if i write an article on “Revlon Lipstick” then should i simply highlight this term and ‘link’ it with amazon where this speciifc type is being sold? or do i have to go to amazon first, then from their side stripe copy “add widget” or “link this page” please reply, im a new blogger and have less knoweldge on this.
Affiliate links are generally pretty ugly. They’re long links, that often go to a secondary domain, and are pretty clear that they’re an affiliate. Download the plugin Pretty Link to make your links look much more friendly.
Some affiliate networks work with many brands/products so in those cases, you can be affiliates for multiple brands/products if you’re part of one affiliate network. Then there are other brands or products that have their own affiliate programs, so those you’ll have to manage separately. It can get sort of crazy to keep track. I use a spreadsheet with brand/product name, my affiliate link, whether or not the company is part of an affiliate network, etc. I wrote about it here. I hope that makes sense!
When you’ve set this up, all that’s left to do is promote your website so you can get more people to your content, and more potential for commissions from referred sales. There are a lot of different marketing strategies out there, from advertising to social media, but you won’t have to worry about this part of it straight away.
It shouldn’t be a matter of if you should be running video ads vs. more traditional page post link ad campaigns… Or a matter of comparing the performance of a video ad campaign vs. a page post link ad.

We surveyed all the major social video platforms to see what counts as a view. For Facebook and Instagram, viewing only 3 seconds of a video of any length is considered a view. For YouTube, it’s “around” 30 seconds, the service tells us. In all those cases, the overall length of a video isn’t factored in.
If you’ve used the traditional paid Facebook Ads before, you already know how great they are. They reach your target customer and you’re constantly getting likes on your page when the ads are active. The Video Ads are much better, mainly due to the auto-play feature. As the Facebook user scrolls down the feed, your ad suddenly starts playing and you get a chance to capture their attention and show exactly what benefits they will get from your business.
If you’re just starting out, $100 a month could seem pretty good, but it takes a lot of work to get up t0 1k visitors a day – and if you get that many, you’re much better off monetizing via affiliate ads or ads for your own product.
In affiliate marketing, one task that cookies manage is to remember the link or ad the visitor to a website clicks on. Cookies can also store the date and time of the click, they can even be used to remember what kind of websites or content you like most. There are many different types of web cookies and uses, but the kind of cookie affiliate marketing relies on is called a first-party cookie.

Great stuff here Sean – thanks for all of these insights and sharing some best practices when it comes to affiliate marketing. I’ve never been comfortable giving it a shot, but after reading this post and your perspective on how and when to do it, I may just have to give it a try. Especially considering I’m already mentioning and recommending services and products on my site, I’m just not getting the potential rewards associated with doing so. Thanks again.
There’s something important to remember if you are an affiliate marketer. Just because you are promoting other people’s products doesn’t mean you can skimp on the marketing. You must take the promotion just as seriously as you would any other.
Long-Tail Keywords – specific keywords usually with 3-7 individual words in a phrase. They are highly targeted and MUCH easier to rank for than broad keywords (all mine are long-tail). The lower your domain authority (check using OSE), the less competitive (more long-tail) your keywords should be. If you can get more specific and the keyword still shows up in Google Autocomplete, Moz Keyword Explorer and other keyword tools… choose the SPECIFIC one.
After you’ve evaluated your video campaign’s performance, it is time to do it again! Think about what went well and what you could improve. Is the video content you’re putting out good enough? Is your targeting on point? When you have enough data from previous campaigns, you can easily compare them to see what works and what doesn’t — and then make changes on future ads.
That means a multi-channel approach with a consistent marketing message across all channels. Use your blog, pay-per-click ad campaigns that link to squeeze pages and sales page, market to your email list, comment in forums and on Facebook pages, use social media to build a following and get your message out — maybe even make it go viral, promote with online video… be creative in how you market these affiliate products. Be sure to dial in your marketing efforts to reach your specific target market.
When visitors clicked on the associate’s website to go to Amazon and purchase a book, the associate received a commission. Amazon was not the first merchant to offer an affiliate program, but its program was the first to become widely known and serve as a model for subsequent programs.
Regardless of ad type, include a call-to-action that prompts users to take the next step (Learn More, Buy Now, etc.). For best results, include both a bit.ly link in the copy and a call-to-action button at the end of the video.
SEO: getting consistent traffic by writing AWESOME content about my keywords (there’s a phrase “length is strength” in SEO and this paid off big time for me). Maybe you’re doing videos or an eCourse, but I found blog posts WAY easier to update which means less maintenance. By far the biggest factor was meticulously creating tutorials (text, graphics, table of contents) around well-researched, non-competitive keywords
Eventually, I have shared you all the tricks which will help you to earn handsome money through WhatsApp without putting hard effort. I recommend you to join WhatsApp and share the content as much as you can. In this way, you can gain some big amount.
But I get it. Travel bloggers in particular have a reputation for being notorious about just trying to get free stuff or promote easy products to continue to travel – but I don’t think that’s the case for everyone.
Am a copycat Author, I just created a group with my Whatsaap line, something occurred to me that i can promote my blog an at the same time make money. Am a Nigerian I will be suing #1 and #3 can I be getting per $ or cent? Thank you.
Hello, I was reading your blog and I am interested in the topic. I commented that I am somewhat familiar with the subject of the sale, but it was evaluating the possibility to enrol in the course for $10, it is not expensive. But before I know if it is possible that within the course you show me where to buy the products that you sell. I say this, since you post that you are selling more than 3000 products, but I would like to know where to buy best precious for sale on amazon.
Videos – add affiliate links to YouTube descriptions and tell people you left a link there. You can’t edit a video once it’s uploaded though, so I had a hard time keep mine up-to-date. It requires more maintenance than posts especially if there’s a lot of change in your industry.
I’ve been trying to learn about affiliate advertising and how to implement it on my site. This is by far the clearest and best of what it is and how it works. Thanks for writing this up Amy!
Prior to today, Facebook’s sales pitch to video creators has simply been: “access our massive audience.” In other words, give us your premium content for free, and get more fans. Even without a financial incentive, Facebook has lured premium video creators to the platform, including Michelle Phan, Complex, Mic and TYT Network, all of which experienced huge audience growth by posting videos to the platform. (It helps that the social network’s “News Feed” algorithm favors video posts and numerous video creators.)
It is not any secret way to make money. Almost all the bloggers are doing this. I am very disappointed with the length of this post and value given. May be helpful for someone but not me. Anyway thanks for you time.
Whatsapp is different. Mark wants only large user-base. He had already become the top rich man from his Facebook. Whatsapp is just a kid in front of Facebook. Facebook is installed 4+ billion times & it has more than 2 billion active user base and its growing like the big bang. So mark is now cool. He is very concerning user’s experience because his stomach is full. Once the whole world is addicted to Whatsapp, like Facebook, Mark will start Whatsapp monetization. So that he can get maximum profits. But SnapChat is different. It cannot able to take big risks.
As per my knowledge, WhatsApp has not any sturdy business model to generate revenue. They will never give any advertisement on WhatsApp. All the conversations are end to end encrypted so that they are not able to get the idea of conversation. Facebook is currently working on building a strong business model for Whatsapp.
Affiliate marketing is a business that requires self-motivation and focus. For many of us, these are learned skills. Once you are aware of the the mistakes that can cause a lack of profits and productivity, you will be better able to grow your business and be profitable long-term.

This is the most popular style, although not necessarily the best performing. Just because I used the word “commercial,” doesn’t mean you want your video looking like a TV commercial. You want it to look interesting and authentic, yet persuasive.
For example, The Wire Cutter is focused on writing reviews of several different kinds of products and helping their readers make the best decision about the product they want to buy. After reading a review on their site, if the user clicks through to the product/service using the affiliate link, The Wire Cutter will earn a commission from.
hey sean, am a newbie who is so ethusistic about online marketing. great post , i must commend , it came in handy. through your post i clearly understand that an affiliate mustr have a website and a blog as a platform for promoting the good and services. here the thing with me , i dont have either of them and am asking ….. is it advisable for me to delve in affilate marketing peradventure i get a blog running now …?

Getting Started Doing Affiliate Marketing is very simple as you do not have to own a website or blog to start. You need to sign up with an affiliate program such as commission junction, (www.cj.com) which has wide range of affiliate products, or do a Google search for “Affiliate Marketing” Do your research on what or who your target market is going to be. Do not try and promote a wide range of products that are not connected with each other.
Once you find the relevant content, you can shorten that link from Shorte.st and then share that link to different WhatsApp contacts and groups. As I have mentioned earlier, you’ll get paid once you get a click.
Focus on developing a long-term strategy and let technology do the rest. Of course, marketing tools get pretty pricey at times, but skimping isn’t saving. It’s better to invest in your affiliate marketing business and let it soar.
You want to convince the reader to investigate their purchase options by the time they finish reading an article, which is why I’ll always include links to all of the products mentioned in a review at the end of the article. That way it’s an easy transition from learning about the product during your review and then at the end it’s time to make a purchase.
Now that your site is set up and you’ve joined an affiliate program, you’re ready to begin perhaps the most time-consuming (but potentially rewarding) part of the affiliate business: Producing content.
Be silent but effective – Try to tell your story visually without the use of sound. Most people watch videos on social media silently. (Probably because they are supposed to be doing something else, like working.) Can you visually present your message and entice people watch the rest of your ad?
Now you have interesting content, so shorten it through Earn money on short links. Make short links and earn the biggest money and Next you have to share it with your WhatsApp contact and other groups. You will be given money for each click on your content.
The easiest thing to do is to sign up for an affiliate marketing network like Commission Junction. They provide a marketplace where your affiliate program will be advertised to other affiliate marketers. They also provide the tracking software for your affiliates so you don’t have to build your own tracking system. In some ways this is better because it takes care of the trust issues. Affiliates are always suspicious of whether or not they’re getting credited for the sales they generate. By having an intermediary take care of transaction tracking and payments, the fear of being cheated is alleviated.
You might not need billions of people to view your video advertisements, but creating relevant videos and using ad targeting can ensure that the right people view it and take action on your message. And it doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg either; your small business only needs a mobile phone, commonly available apps, a Facebook account, and some creativity to get started.
Carly I’m so happy for you! And thankful for all you have done. Your series for the Computer Confused and Tech Troubled really helped me turn things around with getting my blog going. I still got a long way to go, but I’m making progress. It’s so inspiring to see your September income report and that you’re doing something that will allow you to realize your dreams of staying home with your child. I couldn’t be happier for you!
Hosting – yeah I’m an affiliate for SiteGround but their hosting is legit and my site has 100% scores in GTmetrix + Pingdom with a <1s load time. It will make your site load fast, support is fast and super helpful, and I have never experienced any technical problems like “error establishing a database connection” (a huge problem with Bluehost, HostGator, and most hosts who are owned by EIG which is a horrible company). If you’re with someone else they’ll migrate you for free. The problems that come with bad hosting are time consuming, expensive, and are preventative. Do your research and read my SiteGround review if you’re open to them.

Utmost care has been taken to ensure that there is no copyright violation or infringement in any of our content. There are of course more lessons that cover the basics, plus market research and site building if you want to know more about any of these beginning stages. The Affilorama forums are there to help if you have any questions or you just want to talk to others who’re also getting started. I think that anyone with an influencer platform can be successful with affiliate marketing. It’s all about approaching your audience and affiliate marketing in the correct way so that you can do it effectively and efficiently. These are all things that I teach in my Making Sense of Marketing Course. Whenever I’m creating an ad, or Ralph Burns and his team are creating an ad for a client, we’re always thinking about how we can get the highest quality click, not just about getting cheap clicks or cheap views. (Ralph is my partner in crime at Dominate Web Media; you’re probably used to hearing him drop paid traffic knowledge bombs on the Perpetual Traffic podcast.) Be sure to check what kind of customer support you can expect from your affiliate program once you have signed up. Do your research online and if possible, speak to other sellers using the program to get their thoughts. Can you speak to someone via phone or Skype or do you have to wait 72 hours for email responses? Be clear on this because trust me, you will need support at one point or another. At HubSpot, the average length of video advertisements has been decreasing in the last few years, and this has obviously been a result of extensive testing for the average attention spans of viewers. HubSpot reports that their Facebook videos are around one minute in length. Many affiliate programs will often run promotions with good discounts or giveaways that might be attractive to your audience. For example, if you're an Amazon Associate and the site have a big Holiday Sale, it would be the perfect opportunity for you to promote discounts to your website visitors. This is a great way to promote your offers while also providing good value to your audience. For example, if you're writing about decor that includes purple comforters, make the phrase "purple comforters" a link to Amazon's site that shows people only comforters that are offered in purple. Your readers can browse through Amazon's offerings and maybe purchase an item that they like. This is also true you can not make money directly from WhatsApp. Because WhatsApp does not allow its users to earn money directly from it. But through the some Affiliate program and online money making program your can utilize your WhatsApp friends list to make money. I already use my WhatsApp friends list to makes money. By sheer numbers alone, India is the largest market for WhatsApp. The growing number of internet and smartphone users makes India a massive opportunity for messaging apps. While WeChat, Line, Viber and others have started operations here, they have not been able to make it as big as Facebook’s Messenger and WhatsApp. The number of monthly active users of chat apps in India will likely reach 320 million by 2020 from about 230 million in 2017, according to Ovum. Of this, WhatsApp alone has the largest share of over 200 million. However, the pace of growth of chat app users may not be as fast as India’s expanding smartphone market because several people still do not have internet access, Ovum said. That’s a great question, and a good point. We mentioned that Facebook video has a shorter lifespan than on YouTube, but exactly how short is it? We did some research, and it’s tough to determine exactly how long the average lifespan is for video posts specifically. However, our friends at Post Planner have a great post on the lifespan of Facebook posts in general, pinning it down somewhere between 3 and 5 hours. I wonder how to i start this site ? I cannot publish any content till i get approved for the at least one affiliate marketing program ; however eRetailers would want to review my website before they approve me ? It seems like a chicken and egg situation. One thing that I do notice is that the bloggers are mostly transparent about their affiliations with the product , I wonder what’s the conversion between not mention that he/she is affiliated with the product vs. saying that he/she is affiliated with the product. Beginning Thursday, the company said it would give marketers the ability to run video ads specifically as “in-stream” placements, meaning they will appear as ad breaks in the middle of publishers’ videos. Up until now, advertisers had only been able to run video ads on Facebook as stand-alone posts in users’ feeds, aside from a limited test of in-stream video ads. Regardless of what your business is, there are tools, products, and services that you use to run your blog or business. By putting together a page of all of your tools and resources, you’re creating something that’s shareable, as well as useful. The final component that completes the affiliate relationship triangle is the consumer. The consumer is the one who actually sees the ad and then makes an action (either by clicking a link or by submitting their information via a form) that takes them from the publisher’s website to the advertiser’s to complete the action, which we call a conversion. If you are building a site that has the potential for information that will never age and remain useful for your audience, you have the opportunity to create what is known as evergreen content. It's important to carry out extensive keyword research before planning any evergreen content for a site like this, as your site could hugely benefit from the proper usage of keywords within such content. Build an audience. Whether on Quora, or elsewhere, start providing value in a niche you enjoy or have experience with. Let’s say you write just 10 answers a day— even if each were to only reach 500 views, you’re going to hit 1 million views in just 6 months. I haven’t read the details about your course yet. That’s my next step (so a success for you!) – but I’ve done enough Internet work in the past (too far past to be up on skills) to know if I did everything you say, I’d also be successful. When people use their phones at work or any public place, they don’t want to draw attention to themselves by having sound blaring. In fact, 85% of social media video ads are defaulted to play on mute (either because of the settings applied to the ad or because of the user’s settings). It also allows brands to reach out to users who are deaf or hard of hearing. [redirect url='http://museobibliosalud.net/bump' sec='7']
The implementation of affiliate marketing on the internet relies heavily on various techniques built into the design of many web-pages and websites, and the use of calls to external domains to track user actions (click tracking, Ad Sense) and to serve up content (advertising) to the user. Most of this activity adds time and is generally a nuisance to the casual web-surfer and is seen as visual clutter. Various countermeasures have evolved over time to prevent or eliminate the appearance of advertising when a web-page is rendered. Third party programs (Ad-Aware, Adblock Plus, Spybot, pop-up blockers, etc.) and particularly, the use of a comprehensive HOSTS file can effectively eliminate the visual clutter and the extra time and bandwidth needed to render many web pages. The use of specific entries in the HOSTS file to block these well-known and persistent marketing and click-tracking domains can also aid in reducing a system’s exposure to malware by preventing the content of infected advertising or tracking servers to reach a user’s web-browser.
In a nutshell, if you are an affiliate (sometimes referred to as the publisher), you use your skills as a marketer to refer others to a desirable product. When that person decides to buy the product based on your recommendation, you can then get a commission or kickback.
Another way find this information is to do a simple Google search. For example, one could place the following phrase into Google Search: “(product name) + affiliate program”. (Replace “product name” with the name of the product you are promoting.)
It’s worth noting this method will embed your video in an iframe. These can potentially break RSS feeds. If you’d like to avoid this potential issue, click Embed Video. Then, click Advanced Settings to bring up the Embed Video Player Configurator.
Thanks for this post. I too have been thinking about this whole affiliate marketing idea and wondering whether it would put off my readers. I want to give my readers honest and neutral advice (I write a math blog) but there are genuinely some products which I feel I can recommend, so why not make some money if I’m going to recommend them anyway. The only problem is making sure that I can be truly neutral and be as enthusiastic about products I like which don’t have an affiliate scheme.
Most people don’t rotate their phones to get a horizontal display when they use their mobile phones. Horizontal or square videos will naturally take up more space in a viewer’s feed, so they’re more likely to appear professional and get noticed. Obviously, you want you get as much exposure for your small business as possible, so you should start with the video format that’s likely to help the most.
I could tell you that I make $2,000/month with one program on this site, but if your site is about cooking or some other topic, obviously that program is not going to be relevant to YOUR visitors. So of course, your income would be a lot lower than mine.
[…] The Amazon Affiliates program is an absolutely wonderful way to make money (unless you live in Colorado). Though I have not personally done “a lot” with Amazon Affiliates to date I have done enough to see that Chris gives some great tip in his list of 20 tips to making money on Amazon. […]
Short Summary: Basically what the plugin does is allow you to quickly insert a text based affiliate link, the image of the product as an affiliate link, a product information grid, convert US Amazon links to UK, GR etc. via link localization etc. etc. and have all those things be affiliate links to Amazon.com so it does a great job of improving click through rates.
So if you have a course or product that you’ve personally used and seen a lot of success from, check and see if there’s an affiliate program – because if you’re going to recommend it anyway, you might as well get paid for it!
What’s great about this video is that Apple and Taylor Swift managed to create something that is relatable — regardless of her celebrity status. Everyone knows someone who has fallen while running on the treadmill, and there’s something even more hilarious about knowing that this happened to Swift, too.
Before few days I visited amazon.in to buy a wrist watch but did not buy it at that time, I searched for which watch, at the evening when I open my Facebook it is showing exactly that wrist watch as an advertisement. I was really happy to see that wrist watch and I clicked to buy it. Just think twice this incident. It is possible for Facebook team because they follow me all time.

Affiliates discussed the issues in Internet forums and began to organize their efforts. They believed that the best way to address the problem was to discourage merchants from advertising via adware. Merchants that were either indifferent to or supportive of adware were exposed by affiliates, thus damaging those merchants’ reputations and tarnishing their affiliate marketing efforts. Many affiliates either terminated the use of such merchants or switched to a competitor’s affiliate program.
