A couple years ago in United States v. Cyberheat, Inc., the Federal Trade Commission attempted to hold a seller liable for the misconduct of its marketing affiliates. One of Cyberheat’s affiliates used sexually explicit e-mails that didn’t comply with FTC warning label requirements, and the FTC tried to hold Cyberheat strictly liable for the affiliate’s actions. Although the case did not result in merchants being held strictly liable for an affiliate’s actions per se, since then, the FTC and state authorities have continued to increase affiliate monitoring requirements.

As an affiliate, your marketing efforts may be for nothing if you don’t clearly understand the payment structure of your affiliate marketing agreement.  Before you jump on board, make sure the agreement specifies when, how, and why you’ll be compensated for your advertising efforts.

Bodybuilding gives affiliates a great set of XML feeds that you can use to stream some of their best products – top 50, top 100, best sellers, etc. It has all the data for each product and automatically tags the hyperlink with your affiliate code. The only issue was that it wasn’t necessarily formatted the way I wanted it to be for the app, so I downloaded the XML, re-formatted it, and uploaded it to my own server which is where my app pulled from. This gave me full control.

Purchases via HubSpot for Startups  or HubSpot for Entrepreneurs are not eligible for Commission payments.

Google must certainly be planning to swallow up the entire travel industry, and Google Trips seems to be the sneaky first step to consolidating everything you need in one (ad-serving) place. Right now it’s mostly based on submitted content and consolidation of travel tips/guides/maps, but expect the features to get more comprehensive as Google continues to find ways to take our money.
We were able to help them track precisely which channels were delivering the most customers and in-app purchases as well as customers with a high lifetime value (LTV). They could easily track and monitor customers from first click to conversion, whether that was an initial app download or another in-app purchase. In addition, high-profile affiliate partners were more willing to promote Swap.com’s app because its precise tracking ensured fair attribution.
As of today, merchants can either act as if they will be held liable for their affiliate’s actions, or be prepared for FTC litigation if an affiliate does something illegal. In order to prevent unneeded litigation, your affiliate marketing agreement should explicitly and clearly state terms about how the affiliate may and may not advertise. The agreement should also include a proper termination clause in the event a violation does occur.
An affiliate agreement refers to the terms of services between an advertiser and an affiliate (generally a publisher or website) that oversee and define the affiliate relationship.

Recent corporate changes and folding 2Checkout into a larger company that is involved in payment processing and e-commerce means that the affiliate program can sometimes feel somewhat neglected. But the ability to generate custom coupon codes and the comprehensive knowledge base make 2Checkout a good option for experienced affiliates with an established user base. But if you’re just entering the affiliate field for the first time, 2Checkout might not be where you want to start.
The web is littered with massive amounts of hype about affiliate marketing and other "make money online" topics and no information with any real value. Many of these sites and products are authored by people who aren't making a dime, and they're trying to sell you a product they don't really use or some get-rich-quick dream just so they can pad their pockets.I'm not filthy rich, but I make thousands of dollars per month with affiliate marketing -- much of it is passive.
