Today its call technology provides pay-per-call tracking for the majority of affiliate networks including LinkShare and Commission Junction.

It is no surprise that online video is rapidly becoming a commodity, thanks to ever-increasing broadband capacity and wide acceptance of Internet-enabled mobile phones. Increasingly, televisions are becoming conduits for streamed video as well, via streaming devices, players and DVRs, or through newly available IETV (Internet Enabled TV).

Many a budding affiliate marketer has dipped their feet into PPC models in their quest for quick online success. Using PPC to drive affiliate traffic to a merchant’s site is an inherently flawed model.
The Structure of a Flawed Model
In a nutshell, the model is extremely simple. You sign up for an affiliate account, choose a merchant program to promote, and use Google AdWords to send eager customers directly to the merchant’s site. You use your PPC expertise to research profitable keywords, write enticing yet qualified messages, and link to landing pages which are most likely to convert. By adding

Sometimes this is due to technical hurdles, sometimes it is due to a lack of will/understanding on the part of the merchant. For those merchants who, whatever the reason, fail to implement offline tracking commissions are lost by
It seems like a no-brainer. If more online users are moving to smartphones, doesn’t it make sense for marketers to follow them? Many marketers are doing just that by increasing their mobile marketing activities – and a growing number of marketers are building mobile apps.
On the surface, building a branded app makes a lot of sense for a marketer. Unlike a fleeting mobile ad campaign, an app offers a marketer the opportunity to live indefinitely in a user’s smartphone. That means a marketer can continuously reinforce its message, day in and day out.
