Recuerda: las llamadas a la acción no se relacionan solo con las páginas de destino. Son relevantes para cualquier tipo de campaña de generación de leads: tradicional o digital. Volantes, sitios web, anuncios en línea o en periódicos, o incluso cuando intercambia su tarjeta de visita con alguien, todos necesitan llamadas a la acción. “Llámame si crees que podemos trabajar juntos”. Es un llamado a la acción.

El objetivo de la generación de leads no es simplemente obtener un cliente potencial en forma de registro de datos, como en un sorteo. El objetivo real es conseguir un nuevo cliente que esté interesado en el producto X o en el servicio Y, y que esté "listo para la venta". Se trata de un lead cualificado (qualified lead), que muy probablemente se convertirá en un nuevo cliente porque tiene una motivación específica y no quiere ganar nada.
En la década de los setenta se hicieron numerosos estudios para ver el poder de este principio de escasez y el efecto de la reactancia sobre las actitudes de los consumidores. Así West (1975) preguntó a un grupo de estudiantes qué opinaban de la cafetería del centro resultando la valoración no muy positiva. Un tiempo después se les comunica que la cafetería permanecería por obras cerrada durante un período y se les vuelve a preguntar nuevamente su opinión sobre ésta obteniendo una valoración global mucho más favorable que en la primera recogida de datos.
Affiliate marketing has grown quickly since its inception. The e-commerce website, viewed as a marketing toy in the early days of the Internet, became an integrated part of the overall business plan and in some cases grew to a bigger business than the existing offline business. According to one report, the total sales amount generated through affiliate networks in 2006 was £2.16 billion in the United Kingdom alone. The estimates were £1.35 billion in sales in 2005. MarketingSherpa's research team estimated that, in 2006, affiliates worldwide earned US$6.5 billion in bounty and commissions from a variety of sources in retail, personal finance, gaming and gambling, travel, telecom, education, publishing, and forms of lead generation other than contextual advertising programs.
Affiliates were among the earliest adopters of pay per click advertising when the first pay-per-click search engines emerged during the end of the 1990s. Later in 2000 Google launched its pay per click service, Google AdWords, which is responsible for the widespread use and acceptance of pay per click as an advertising channel. An increasing number of merchants engaged in pay per click advertising, either directly or via a search marketing agency, and realized that this space was already occupied by their affiliates. Although this situation alone created advertising channel conflicts and debates between advertisers and affiliates, the largest issue concerned affiliates bidding on advertisers names, brands, and trademarks. Several advertisers began to adjust their affiliate program terms to prohibit their affiliates from bidding on those type of keywords. Some advertisers, however, did and still do embrace this behavior, going so far as to allow, or even encourage, affiliates to bid on any term, including the advertiser's trademarks.
