In February 2000, Amazon announced that it had been granted a patent[17] on components of an affiliate program. The patent application was submitted in June 1997, which predates most affiliate programs, but not PC Flowers & (October 1994), (October 1995), (January 1996), EPage (April 1996), and several others.[18]
La generación de clientes potenciales juega un papel central en el marketing online. Métodos como el marketing de contenidos, el marketing de permiso o el inbound marketing tienen como objetivo generar contactos y productos de marketing, servicios o su propia imagen. La publicidad en los motores de búsqueda también puede ser implementada para la generación de clientes potenciales. Cuantos más leads genere una empresa, mayor será el alcance de las futuras campañas y, posiblemente, los ingresos, si los leads se convierten en ventas. El éxito de la generación de clientes potenciales puede medirse utilizando diferentes valores. Por ejemplo, el ROI, el retorno social de la inversión y la tasa de conversión. Se recomienda la monitorización para reaccionar rápidamente y optimizar las campañas posteriores.

The Internet has increased the prominence of affiliate marketing. Amazon popularized the practice by creating an affiliate marketing program whereby websites and bloggers put links to the Amazon page for a reviewed or discussed product to receive advertising fees when a purchase is made. In this sense, affiliate marketing is essentially a pay for performance marketing program where the act of selling is outsourced across a vast network.
When people talk about email marketing, lots of them forget to mention transactional emails. These are the automated emails you get in your inbox after taking a certain action on a website. This could be anything from filling out a form, to purchasing a product, to updating you on the progress of your order. Often, these are plain text emails that marketers set and forget.

Some advertisers offer multi-tier programs that distribute commission into a hierarchical referral network of sign-ups and sub-partners. In practical terms, publisher "A" signs up to the program with an advertiser and gets rewarded for the agreed activity conducted by a referred visitor. If publisher "A" attracts publishers "B" and "C" to sign up for the same program using his sign-up code, all future activities performed by publishers "B" and "C" will result in additional commission (at a lower rate) for publisher "A".

Marketing emails need to be personalized to the reader and filled with interesting graphics. Few people want to read emails that are addressed "Dear Sir/Madam" -- as opposed to their first or last name -- and even fewer people want to read an email that simply gives them a wall of text. Visuals help your recipients quickly understand what the point of the email is.
Spam is the biggest threat to organic search engines, whose goal is to provide quality search results for keywords or phrases entered by their users. Google's PageRank algorithm update ("BigDaddy") in February 2006—the final stage of Google's major update ("Jagger") that began in mid-summer 2005—specifically targeted spamdexing with great success. This update thus enabled Google to remove a large amount of mostly computer-generated duplicate content from its index.[33]
