The Future of Affiliate Marketing | Making Progress

The Future is Happening Right Now

Who could have ever imagined that 2020 is already upon us with changes taking their grip on the affiliate marketing front? It’s one of the most important years one could have ever imagined especially with social media and general news portals that report disasters worldwide.

2019-2020 will be the most talked-about era ever known to man with so many terrible things happening not just around the world but on our doorsteps too. Affiliates are joining hands to create a selling point on every single need that can be purchased online around the world. One example is the face masks for the new CoronaVirus and other aids that are needed to aid disasters.

We’ve also seen huge scale tech developments in programmatic algorithms and Big Data, with fraud prevention ad tech and data analysis at the front of many strategic advertising developments. Big companies can’t keep up with the major developments that are taking place on the internet no matter how much they pay for their competition to join them.

Affiliate Marketers are Learning far Faster

Affiliate marketers from various social backgrounds are learning how to write fantastic articles and learning the real importance of various analytics to drive their businesses forward. The large companies are hiring people from all over the world to handle their worries with marketing strategies and developments to keep ahead of the game.

Affiliate marketers are showing large companies around the world how it’s done with businesses that have been created from as little as a bedroom, small office in the home or a business that has been built while on the move. It’s all happening on the affiliate marketing front. It’s all about having the freedom to roam and if someone wants to work from an office for $50,000 a year and think it’s the best job around then read on.

These days affiliate marketers are earning far more than the average office worker and placing far more workloads into achieving this because they simply love what they are doing. Where in the world can you find a job that you love doing each and every day and earn thousands of dollars each day for doing so?

It’s hard to learn a new trade but affiliate marketers are concentrating on training platforms that work with full training that would cost millions for a large corporation that hires high-class tech support to implement. Affiliate marketers are becoming excellent in front of the camera as they promote their businesses for the world wide web to listen too. They are becoming far more equipped to handle problems and keep up with market developments as they grow with the economy.

People are Leaving the Office

People are now starting to leave the office more than in previous years to start their own businesses. The only difference between employees that already have an income is they can afford to buy their website’s tools faster and create a business in less time but does that work?

They can’t learn faster to make all those new add on’s work like someone that has little or nothing but goes through training every day to learn the ropes with thousands of others that are also searching for financial freedom. This is the reason I love the internet it builds bridges and helps the less fortunate become successful and what better to be in a community with 2 million other affiliates?

Rich bankers run the economy we drive it, someone always has to buy from someone and that someone always needs to also buy something from someone else that’s the beauty of being an affiliate marketer we look at market trends and how people interact online with each other and find a selling point.

If someone joins a program through me and they are successful they will tell their friends where they went to join. My customers will think before they make a decision to sign up somewhere. I have the key and I’ll open the door if you read my posts and let me introduce you to a secret place where you will learn how to become an entrepreneur.

“The future of affiliate marketing over the next 10-15 years will be dominated by the evolution of multi-touch attribution and its growth will be driven by the ongoing retail apocalypse.

As marketing departments target more touch-points and analytics platforms provide more visibility into multi-touch attribution, affiliate advertisers will rethink their affiliate commission models and offer more variable commissions based on the weight of attribution.

Additionally, as the retail apocalypse forces more companies to focus on their digital presence versus their physical one, the affiliate landscape will expand and grow thanks to the increased competition between these online brands and Amazon. In short, advertisers will be smarter about commissions and publishers will benefit from an ever-expanding list of advertisers vying for their attention.”

  2. In the new world of economy, I see affiliate marketing as an alternative to diversifying one’s income. It doesn’t make you rich overnight, but cumulatively, it can grow a cushion of funds for you to fall on when your primary income is compromised. I am currently reading the book Entrepreneurial You by Dorie Clark and it provides great insights on how you can thrive on multiple stream of income, affiliate marketing being just one of them.

    1. Hi Cathy,

      Thanks for your comments, I read a lot and have to introduce you to two books I just finished one was so good I read it twice to make sure I hadn’t missed anything. It’s called The Launch by Jeff Walker and covers information about the Product Launch Formula. if you don’t know what that is please read the book it’s great. I also read a book called the $ hour Work Week which is right up my street as I’m interested In the Laptop Lifestyle.

  3. Hello thank you so much posting this great reviews on affiliate marketing.  I have been an affiliate marketer for 2 years now and I’m really earning good commissions. At first I taught affiliate marketing are scams because I came across so many before I became a wealthy affiliate marketer. For me I’m not ready to leave this job because it isn’t so stressful but it’s also not a get rich quick scheme. Thanks for sharing and I hope to see more useful topics 

    1. Hi Perry.

      Thanks for your comment and I’m happy to meet you. I used to have a hotel booking system but I got ill and had to have a break and lost my momentum but I know what success really is. I work hard these days in helping other people that’s what gives me the motivation when I read my comments and people are learning from my content.

  4. Your guide is very helpful. Affiliates are joining hands to create a selling point on every single need that can be purchased online around the world. People are now starting to leave the office more than in previous years to start their own businesses. The only difference between employees that already have an income is they can afford to buy their website’s tools faster and create a business in less time but does that work?

    1. HI Bai,

      People that work all day in the same job with no motivation seem to be in limbo they are going nowhere at all but I don’t blame them I would rather invite them to talk with me about where I can take them and change the perspective and views of life. This year is a big year for me I’m going to eventually be in full steam ahead with my businesses and I’m changing the ways people can approach me with some free eBooks for them to read. Here is another motivational article I wrote a few weeks ago that people really like called. Do You Want to Quit Your Job for A Laptop Lifestyle?

  5. First of all thank you so much for sharing such an excellent article with us .I’ve been working in the affiliate marketing world for a long time. Personally I am affiliate marketing through a wealthy affiliate website and I am a successful affiliate marketer .Affiliate Marketing is just as good a place for beginners as I think in Affiliate Marketing we have a very good prospect in the future. wealthy affiliate has provided me with a lot of tutorial videos to work on in this place. As well as giving my website many tools to take it to a good stage .

    Your article is really informative and great. I think as I gain a lot of knowledge through your articles, my other friends will gain a lot of knowledge and will definitely share with you their success in affiliate marketing place.I know the future of affiliate marketing and have been very supportive and motivated by me .

  6. I agree with you, Affiliate marketers are earning more than most office workers. But to be an affiliate marketing you have to know or research the best niches that people are interested in. But sometimes it is hard to find the best niches. 

    Do you have any advice on how to find the best niches and which affiliate programs are the best?

    1. Hi Sunewako,

      Amazon is a really good place to start but their customer service doesn’t do it for me. You could try joining Clickbank they have some really good programs and payments are really easy to deal with. I’ve just joined one for a travel website I have for travel insurance called International Insurance and they have some really nice brochures for customers to download. Rocket Languages have a really good affiliate program for learning languages if you’re into that. I used to be an English teacher overseas so I have a TEFL website and also a teacher recruitment website. http://www.teflart.com

  7. You are on point about affiliate marketers learning more about creating and running businesses compared to the traditional route. Instead of working for others at a fixed salary, just enough to keep you comfortable, they work for themselves anywhere in the world, doing what they love. Instead of a fixed paycheck, they choose what they want to earn and make it happen. The sky is the limit. 

    The laptop lifestyle it definitely is. Technology is moving forward at warp speed. And large corporations have too much inertia to maintain that pace of development. We are moving into a world of entrepreneurs where individuals can draw on the latest technology to make things happen much faster. 

    I see a world where corporations will change to harness the efforts of independent entrepreneurs to achieve their goals. Instead of hiring workers, they will forge partnerships with individuals and groups who are more capable at embracing the best tech and trends as they become available. 

    Affiliate Marketers will be a big part of this trend.



    1. Hi Edwin,

      Times are really moving fast as you mentioned and this is a big year for affiliate marketing. I’m holding a workshop at a local coffee shop next week to help some friends with starting an online business. I think people not only want to learn how to have their own business they want to be financially free too. I’m spending time writing a lot to show people what being an affiliate is all about. Thanks for your message and good luck with your quest for success if you haven’t already reached it.

  8. I definitely understand the power of affiliate marketing. It’s a great way to generate an income online without being tied to a 9-to-5 job. I especially like the fact that it allows me to work and make a decent income while also spending time with my family and in homeschooling my child. And with the new changes in our lives due to the virus threat, many people are purchasing online and looking for ways to learn online marketing. All in all this presents a great opportunity of a lifetime to all affiliate marketers.

    1. Hi There,

      It’s great working from home but then again it’s also nice to be around people although not at the moment lol with the virus. I enjoy writing posts that really do improve my SEO and I’m delighted that although just on Bing that the results for my pages been ranked and climbing each day hence I write as much as I can. Thanks for commenting and I agree with you totally one day all most everything will be purchased online.

  10. Thanks for writing this very informative article on The Future of Affiliate Marketing | Making Progress.

With so many people out of work nowadays thanks to the coronavirus, it’s a great idea to find an online job and this sounds like a very good place to start. I’ll have to look into this in the very near future.

    1. Hi Lynne,

      Thanks for your comment and I feel that with the affiliate industry is really picking up and with SEO being the drive behind content marketing and your good at writing it’s a real good time to start with business online where you can automate and monetize your income making your business work for you. This in term gives you the freedom to work from where you want and when you want.


  11. Hey Stephen! While I was looking for platform that is not a scam or a the kind ” hot to make money fast” program, but one that actually works, I jumped to your article. And I didn’t regret that I did so. Your article was very informative and your recommendation sounds very legit and a good way to start my online business. Thank you for sharing it with us!

    My question is: How usable is it for the beginners?

  12. Future looks very brightin the affiliate marketing industry for sure! We’re in 2020 now, high technology is surrounding us, the most obvious thing is that online businesses are gaining momentum and this will go on.

    The best thing is that you can also use the internet to learn, and you can do it fast, as mentioned in the article!

    1. Hi Victor,

      I think the real world that outside is effected hence many people are now using the internet for communication so people can connect and online businesses that sell food delivery etc earn a living a real good one too. The problem is the fact we should always think about our health and been stuck inside isn’t good for it or is to much time online.

  13. You’re absolutely right; affiliate marketers are more creative than regular employees. I think it’s because when you’re an entrepreneur, you have to be creative. Employees just need to do what their job is, but affiliate marketers need to think themselves.

    I was just wondering about something, as you mentioned the Corona virus and affiliate marketing. Don’t some affiliate programs prohibit their affiliates from selling goods by talking about Corona virus? I wonder if it means you can’t make claims like “buy this product to prevent getting Corona virus” or if you can’t talk about Corona virus on your blog at all? I’m uncertain about this, so please let me know if you have any information. 

    1. Hi Kirsti,

      Remember we live in a democratic country or at least I do, so I will sell what I want but only if all my content in the form of an authority post or webpage should be 100% accurate for the sake of keeping it above board and remember I do have a heart and would not benefit personally from selling for profit If those kinds of products are scarce and even the doctors need them such as face masks, etc 

      I think there are millions of Corona Virus websites already but some of them are really cool but you have to think about this. If your drilling out statistical figures you will need to change them on a daily basis otherwise the website won’t rank against websites that update daily. What I mean about this is the number of deaths and the amount of infected etc.
