Email marketing - Email marketing in comparison to other forms of digital marketing is considered cheap; it is also a way to rapidly communicate a message such as their value proposition to existing or potential customers. Yet this channel of communication may be perceived by recipients to be bothersome and irritating especially to new or potential customers, therefore the success of email marketing is reliant on the language and visual appeal applied. In terms of visual appeal, there are indications that using graphics/visuals that are relevant to the message which is attempting to be sent, yet less visual graphics to be applied with initial emails are more effective in-turn creating a relatively personal feel to the email. In terms of language, the style is the main factor in determining how captivating the email is. Using casual tone invokes a warmer and gentle and inviting feel to the email in comparison to a formal style. For combinations; it's suggested that to maximize effectiveness; using no graphics/visual alongside casual language. In contrast using no visual appeal and a formal language style is seen as the least effective method.[48]
Word of mouth communications and peer-to-peer dialogue often have a greater effect on customers, since they are not sent directly from the company and are therefore not planned. Customers are more likely to trust other customers’ experiences.[22] Examples can be that social media users share food products and meal experiences highlighting certain brands and franchises. This was noted in a study on Instagram, where researchers observed that adolescent Instagram users' posted images of food-related experiences within their social networks, providing free advertising for the products.[26]

"I was looking over the link reports for (our site) recently. I just wanted to tell you and your team that I was especially impressed with the quality of links acquired over the last few months. I mean, they're completely stellar. So many of them have been older domains receiving plenty of edu and gov backlinks. I am very impressed! Ninjas, indeed! So I wanted to pass that on because I feel everyone deserves to know when they are appreciated. And I totally appreciate you guys. :))) Whenever someone who actually has an internet marketing budget asks me about SEO services, I always rave to them about my experience with the Ninjas ( long as they're not in any of the same verticals as I am!) Thanks again for all the time and effort." Dan C.

Video advertising - This type of advertising in terms of digital/online means are advertisements that play on online videos e.g. YouTube videos. This type of marketing has seen an increase in popularity over time.[50] Online Video Advertising usually consists of three types: Pre-Roll advertisements which play before the video is watched, Mid-Roll advertisements which play during the video, or Post-Roll advertisements which play after the video is watched.[51] Post-roll advertisements were shown to have better brand recognition in relation to the other types, where-as "ad-context congruity/incongruity plays an important role in reinforcing ad memorability".[50] Due to selective attention from viewers, there is the likelihood that the message may not be received.[52] The main advantage of video advertising is that it disrupts the viewing experience of the video and therefore there is a difficulty in attempting to avoid them. How a consumer interacts with online video advertising can come down to three stages: Pre attention, attention, and behavioural decision.[53] These online advertisements give the brand/business options and choices. These consist of length, position, adjacent video content which all directly affect the effectiveness of the produced advertisement time,[50] therefore manipulating these variables will yield different results. Length of the advertisement has shown to affect memorability where-as longer duration resulted in increased brand recognition.[50] This type of advertising, due to its nature of interruption of the viewer, it is likely that the consumer may feel as if their experience is being interrupted or invaded, creating negative perception of the brand.[50] These advertisements are also available to be shared by the viewers, adding to the attractiveness of this platform. Sharing these videos can be equated to the online version of word by mouth marketing, extending number of people reached.[54] Sharing videos creates six different outcomes: these being "pleasure, affection, inclusion, escape, relaxation, and control".[50] As well, videos that have entertainment value are more likely to be shared, yet pleasure is the strongest motivator to pass videos on. Creating a ‘viral’ trend from mass amount of a brands advertisement can maximize the outcome of an online video advert whether it be positive or a negative outcome.
Como vimos anteriormente, uma outra forma de você trabalhar como afiliado é fazendo a divulgação diretamente por meio de publicidade paga, sejam anúncios no Facebook, no Google AdWords, Taboola, Outbrain ou outras plataformas de anúncios. Muitos afiliados profissionais ao redor do mundo trabalham somente com publicidade paga. Eles não criam absolutamente nada, exceto os anúncios para divulgação das ofertas de afiliado.
Gross Rating Points (GRP) é a soma das classificações alcançadas por um canal de comunicação específico ou horário. Representa a percentagem do público-alvo alcançado por um anúncio. O GRP é uma medida do impacto de uma campanha, é igual ao produto da taxa de cobertura (Reach) pela taxa média de repetição (OTS – Opportunity To See), sendo: a cobertura (Reach) o número ou percentagem (neste caso % é taxa) de indivíduos da audiência alvo que estiveram expostos à “mensagem” pelo menos uma vez durante a campanha; e a taxa de repetição ou OTS o numero de vezes que, em média, o potencial consumidor esteve exposto à “mensagem” da campanha. No entanto o GPRs na internet ainda não pode ser comparado ao dos mass media como a televisão (TV), pelo facto do número de pessoas com acesso à internet ser inferior à das pessoas que vêem TV e pelo próprio conceito de GPRs, que tem que ser adaptado para ser eficaz no Digital media de modo a ser devidamente medido em campanhas de b-Marketing (blended marketing).

Embora isso possa funcionar numa estratégia de curto prazo, a realidade é que a longo prazo será difícil manter seu negócio funcionando, pela simples razão de que esse afiliado precisará, constantemente, criar novas páginas, novas contas de anúncios e novas formas de divulgar esses produtos. No final, ele não terá absolutamente nada e ficará dependente desses produtos. Não recomendo que você faça isso. Pense numa estratégia de longo prazo, sustentável e com uma comunicação simples, objetiva e relevante para o seu público-alvo.

Os e-auctions, normalmente, são leilões directos, em que alguém oferece produtos ou serviços a utilizadores que licitam de forma ascendente (versão inglesa) ou descendente (versão alemã). No entanto os leilões que mais interessam para as empresas, não são os directos, são os leilões invertidos. Num “reverse e-auction” leilão invertido as empresas adquirem produtos ou serviços num concurso público fechado (quantidade e especificações) em que teoricamente vence a melhor oferta, não apenas no preço mas também com as melhores condições comerciais (nem sempre a oferta de preço mais baixo ganha os contratos). Um exemplo de sucesso da utilização de e-auctions é o da British Airways, que em 2005 poupou 300 milhões de libras pela utilização de e-auctions, no entanto, a vantagem de usar os e-auction não reside apenas nos custos, pois, também permite determinar a estrutura de preços da concorrência, através da análise das suas licitações.

Marketing de afiliados é uma forma de você gerar rendimento através de um trabalho de partilha, recomendação e promoção de produtos ou serviços de outras pessoas ou empresas. Basicamente, quando você ajuda uma outra empresa a conseguir vender um produto, recebe uma comissão por esse trabalho. Existem várias formas de comissionamento, mas o conceito é semelhante em todas elas, ou seja, você promove algo em troca de uma fatia do valor dessa venda gerada.
