Know the legal requirements. Most visitors will probably understand that advertisements lead to your personal compensation, but if you write a review or use an in-text link as a recommendation, you must explicitly state that each purchase using that link can generate revenue for you. This isn't just good business: it's also required by law. If you don't disclose affiliate or revenue-generating links, you could face legal and financial penalties.

Websites consisting mostly of affiliate links have previously held a negative reputation for underdelivering quality content. In 2005 there were active changes made by Google, where certain websites were labeled as "thin affiliates".[34] Such websites were either removed from Google's index or were relocated within the results page (i.e., moved from the top-most results to a lower position). To avoid this categorization, affiliate marketer webmasters must create quality content on their websites that distinguishes their work from the work of spammers or banner farms, which only contain links leading to merchant sites.
Si miras detenidamente, la generación de prospectos es muy similar al trueque, donde las personas intercambian su información de contacto por algo valioso como un libro electrónico, una consulta, cupones de descuento o un seminario web. La única diferencia es que compartir información de contacto no es exactamente como separarse de tu gallina, y obtener un libro electrónico no es tan valioso como obtener madera. Pero, todavía es comercio.

Unscrupulous affiliates can squat on domain names with misspellings and get a commission for the redirect. They can populate online registration forms with fake or stolen information, and they can purchase AdWords on search terms the company already ranks high on, and so on. Even if the terms and conditions are clear, an affiliate marketing program requires that someone monitor affiliates and enforce rules.
In 1994, Tobin launched a beta version of PC Flowers & Gifts on the Internet in cooperation with IBM, who owned half of Prodigy.[10] By 1995 PC Flowers & Gifts had launched a commercial version of the website and had 2,600 affiliate marketing partners on the World Wide Web. Tobin applied for a patent on tracking and affiliate marketing on January 22, 1996, and was issued U.S. Patent number 6,141,666 on Oct 31, 2000. Tobin also received Japanese Patent number 4021941 on Oct 5, 2007, and U.S. Patent number 7,505,913 on Mar 17, 2009, for affiliate marketing and tracking.[11] In July 1998 PC Flowers and Gifts merged with Fingerhut and Federated Department Stores.[12]
Algunos recursos, como libros electrónicos, libros blancos, guías, etc., muestran un valor inmediato y el placer de obtener el libro anula el dolor de llenar el formulario. Además, un recurso de alta calidad es una prueba de autoridad y va más allá de la generación de clientes potenciales para ayudar a establecer la conciencia de marca. Las personas lo recordarán (y lo compartirán) si ven valor real en él.

Effective email marketing campaigns are designed for all devices on which users can read their emails -- desktop, tablet, and smartphone. Email campaigns that are designed for mobile devices are especially important -- a quality known as "responsive design." In fact, 73% of companies today prioritize mobile device optimization when creating email marketing campaigns.

Promote up-sells/cross-sells. You can even set up an autoresponder sequence for someone after they purchase and get repeat customers. Depending on the products you sell, you could offer an upsell, or cross-sell related products. For example, if someone buys a digital camera, you can offer to add a lens, a tripod, and other accessories to their order before it ships. Or, if you sell products that people buy frequently (like food or disposable items, like diapers), you can automatically send them offers for new items when you know they’re about due for another order.


Los incentivos se utilizan en muchos tipos de generación de leads con el fin de motivarlos. Pueden ser ofertas especiales, descuentos o pruebas gratuitas. Los aspectos legales también deben ser observados para algunos tipos de generación de leads. Por ejemplo, debe haber una opción de exclusión voluntaria para las newsletters, y la transferencia de datos en un formulario web debe tener un botón de exclusión voluntaria. El cliente debe expresar explícitamente su consentimiento con tipos especiales de leads antes de que la empresa pueda generar un registro de datos. Un doble opt-in es el procedimiento habitual.

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]
