Para quem trabalha com marketing digital, possivelmente já ouviu falar de marketing de afiliados. No entanto, poucos ainda sabem o que significa marketing de afiliados e o que é possível fazer com isso na prática. Embora esse seja um mercado que cresceu mais de 100% ao ano no Brasil nos últimos cinco anos, continua sendo um mercado pequeno quando comparado com outros nichos, como agências de marketing, produtores de conteúdo, serviços freelancer, etc. Ainda assim, as previsões apontam para que o mercado de afiliados continue se expandindo a um ritmo extremamente acelerado durante os próximos anos.
