JVZoo was founded in 2011 and has since rocketed to near the top as one of the most popular affiliate programs out there. JVZoo is unusual in that there are no upfront costs for either publishers or merchants (advertisers). JVZoo’s income is exclusively from charging fees (to both the merchant and the affiliate) after a sale has been made. It is also unusual in that it pays commissions “instantly” via PayPal rather than once a week/fortnight/month like other affiliate programs.
In 2006, the most active sectors for affiliate marketing were the adult gambling, retail industries and file-sharing services.[21]:149–150 The three sectors expected to experience the greatest growth are the mobile phone, finance, and travel sectors.[21] Soon after these sectors came the entertainment (particularly gaming) and Internet-related services (particularly broadband) sectors. Also several of the affiliate solution providers expect to see increased interest from business-to-business marketers and advertisers in using affiliate marketing as part of their mix.[21]:149–150

Previously known as Affiliate Window but now officially referred to as “AWIN” after acquiring Zanox a few years ago, this network claims to work with over 13,000 active advertisers and 100,000 publishers (affiliates).

I would personally agree with linkshare.com as a great affiliate marketing platform to join as a publisher. Here’s why. Back in 2005 when I knew nothing about affiliate marketing and was using blogger.com as a free blogging platform without any experience whatsoever and joining Walmart.com as my first official affiliate program, I was able to insert Walmart affiliate in its in my blogger blog and earn a $72 commission. I was onto affiliate marketing for life from there.

Der Affiliate-System-Betreiber ist für die Bereitstellung und den Betrieb des Portals zuständig. Er hat den fehlerfreien Betrieb zu gewährleisten und ist für die Vermarktung des Portals zuständig. In der Realität unterscheidet man zwei Arten von Betreibern. Zum einen haben sich unabhängige Plattformen, die Affiliate-Netzwerke, etabliert, welche als Schnittstelle zwischen Händlern (Merchants) und Vertriebspartnern (Affiliates) fungieren. Diese sind vor allem für die Bereitstellung und Administration der Technik und die finanzielle Abwicklung zuständig. Andererseits sind Plattformen zu finden, innerhalb derer der Händler selbst die Betreiberfunktion übernimmt (sog. „In-House Programme“). Diese von den Händlern selbst betriebenen Partnerprogramme spielen im deutschen Markt kaum eine Rolle. Beim Spendenmarketing wird die Provision an eine registrierte Organisation gezahlt.
