As of October 2018 almost 4.2 billion people were active internet users and 3.4 billion were social media users (Statista). China, India and the United States rank ahead all other countries in terms of internet users. This gives a marketer an unprecedented number of customers to reach with product and service offerings, available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The interactive nature of the internet facilitates immediate communication between businesses and consumers, allowing businesses to respond quickly to the needs of consumers and changes in the marketplace.

Shifting the focus to the time span, we may need to measure some "Interim Metrics", which give us some insight during the journey itself, as well as we need to measure some "Final Metrics" at the end of the journey to inform use if the overall initiative was successful or not. As an example, most of social media metrics and indicators such as likes, shares and engagement comments may be classified as interim metrics while the final increase/decrease in sales volume is clearly from the final category.
Video advertising - This type of advertising in terms of digital/online means are advertisements that play on online videos e.g. YouTube videos. This type of marketing has seen an increase in popularity over time.[50] Online Video Advertising usually consists of three types: Pre-Roll advertisements which play before the video is watched, Mid-Roll advertisements which play during the video, or Post-Roll advertisements which play after the video is watched.[51] Post-roll advertisements were shown to have better brand recognition in relation to the other types, where-as "ad-context congruity/incongruity plays an important role in reinforcing ad memorability".[50] Due to selective attention from viewers, there is the likelihood that the message may not be received.[52] The main advantage of video advertising is that it disrupts the viewing experience of the video and therefore there is a difficulty in attempting to avoid them. How a consumer interacts with online video advertising can come down to three stages: Pre attention, attention, and behavioural decision.[53] These online advertisements give the brand/business options and choices. These consist of length, position, adjacent video content which all directly affect the effectiveness of the produced advertisement time,[50] therefore manipulating these variables will yield different results. Length of the advertisement has shown to affect memorability where-as longer duration resulted in increased brand recognition.[50] This type of advertising, due to its nature of interruption of the viewer, it is likely that the consumer may feel as if their experience is being interrupted or invaded, creating negative perception of the brand.[50] These advertisements are also available to be shared by the viewers, adding to the attractiveness of this platform. Sharing these videos can be equated to the online version of word by mouth marketing, extending number of people reached.[54] Sharing videos creates six different outcomes: these being "pleasure, affection, inclusion, escape, relaxation, and control".[50] As well, videos that have entertainment value are more likely to be shared, yet pleasure is the strongest motivator to pass videos on. Creating a ‘viral’ trend from mass amount of a brands advertisement can maximize the outcome of an online video advert whether it be positive or a negative outcome.
O SEO nada mais é do que a otimização de uma página (ou até do site inteiro) para ser melhor compreendido pelas ferramentas de busca. A conseqüência da utilização das técnicas de SEO é o melhor posicionamento de um site em uma página de resultados de uma busca. Por exemplo, ao pesquisar no Google por “Marketing de Busca”, o primeiro resultado é este site. O SEO é uma prática sem garantias, ou seja, nenhuma empresa ou pessoa pode garantir que seu site fique em primeiro em uma busca, pois o único capaz disto seria o próprio site de busca como o Google ou o Yahoo.

It is not a good idea to use hyphens, numbers, and misspelled words. As much as possible, you should also keep your domain name short so people can remember and type it easily. Although you can use any extension, such as .org and .net, it is still best to go with .com simply because it is the most common extension and people are more aware of it. Nonetheless, you may also use .net, .org, .info, and .biz among others.
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.
A única coisa que você precisa fazer é passar cerca de uma ou duas horas por dia na Internet. O trabalho é simples, mas exige concentração e disciplina.

Una guía completísima y útil Frank. El asunto “publicidad frente a afiliación” es bastante interesante, sobre todo porque la publi convencional en Internet parece que ha tocado casi fondo. De hecho hasta el New York Times se interesa ahora por los enlaces de afiliados como via de diversificar ingresos y ha comprado una web que se dedica precisamente a eso, a revisar productos y obtener comisiones de Amazon, como modelo de negocio.
