There is still a big hole in the market with apps. Most of the marketers and developers out there are looking at apps as products, whereas this article discusses how apps can also be tools. There are ways to capitalize on a hot market without competing directly with everyone else. The affiliate market will essentially become a secondary market within apps, which is untapped at this point and ready to rock.
One idea I’ve always thought would be awesome would be to take the long form OptimizePress type sales page and build it into an iPhone app. You could break up the entire pitch into beautiful presentation. Here’s a very quick mockup I did using Steve’s book as an example – I built this template for iPhone/iPad a while ago that allows you to feature beautiful, high res photography, play videos, and sell content in the app. You can only imagine how awesome this would be for selling a specific affiliate product.
There’s a good reason why ClickBank is still a strong contender, however it does tend to focus more on digital products which may be of questionable quality. Yes, the review process is more professional these days, but it’s still primarily focused on selling digital products, especially “how to make money” courses and the like. That being said, there are some genuinely high-quality products on offer, and few affiliate programs are bigger than ClickBank, especially in selling (primarily digital) books.
Affiliates know all about optimizing costs in campaigns, but if you ask about travel costs, most admit they just buy their flight when they get their conference tickets. Wrong! It’s 2017! Complex pricing for flights means big price tags for those who don’t plan ahead – and huge savings for those who do. Hopper makes flight booking easy. Just add your trip a few months in advance and the app will track prices, alerting you when it thinks it’s found the lowest possible. (Hint: You can already enter the dates and locations for most major affiliate marketing events in 2017!)
Many voucher code web sites use a click-to-reveal format, which requires the web site user to click to reveal the voucher code. The action of clicking places the cookie on the website visitor's computer. In the United Kingdom, the IAB Affiliate Council under chair Matt Bailey announced regulations that stated that "Affiliates must not use a mechanism whereby users are encouraged to click to interact with content where it is unclear or confusing what the outcome will be."
