Sadly, for years affiliate marketing has been seen as the poor relation of the digital advertising family.
Tracking networks and technology companies typically selling the channel as a no-frills, “no-win no-fee” way to pad out marketing plans.
I’ve worked in affiliate marketing for more than 13 years and in that time I have had to endure a lot of comments about the industry emulating the “wild west” and being tarnished with a bad quality image.
I have always felt these comments to be incorrect and unfair, but what the affiliate world has done very well is address these concerns by putting in place practices to ensure transparency and quality that is self-regulated by industry stakeholders.
With the dust settled on another record-breaking trading period, what does the underlying data tell us?
This year Affiliate Window’s publishers generated £100m in revenue for 1,600 UK and US retailers across the four day Black Friday weekend bookended by Cyber Monday. That's a 46% hike in sales revenue for 2015.
Here are six underlying trends.
No doubt you’re all sick of hearing about ad blocking by now, but it has opened up some interesting conversations around alternative ways for publishers to make money.

Cross-device tracking is an important and crucial development to enable us to better understand customer behaviour.
This is particularly true when looking to assign a sale correctly to an affiliate in our channel and also to have the ability to view the value of a channel that works on a last-click-wins basis.
The challenge of tracking cross-device transactions is a critical one for all digital marketers, but for a channel premised on paid for conversions, it takes on a heightened importance.
Cross device tracking first came on the radar in 2011, when it became obvious that online users were regularly accessing links and content from publishers across more than one device.
The deadline for entering the Masters of Marketing awards is approaching fast (September 23) and therefore I thought I’d take a look at one of the most complex and somewhat overlooked categories: Performance Marketing.
Affiliate marketing can be an easy and cost-effective tactic to drive click-throughs and sales, particularly as the battle for Christmas spend heats up.
But handing over control to a third party partner is not without its challenges. So how can marketers make the most of affiliate marketing without risking their brand reputation?
Mobile commerce has witnessed staggering growth over the past few years.
We have been monitoring this activity for the past five years and in that time we have seen the share of mobile traffic increase from just 2%, to in excess of 50% of clicks through a tablet or smartphone.
With the rise of cross device tracking, it is perhaps timely to consider the true length of customer journeys and whether as a result, cookie lengths should be revisited.
Customer journeys are becoming increasingly complex.
Not only are they across multiple channels with multiple touch-points, they are also spanning multiple devices.
In our regular Start Me Up feature we rarely feature new agency-side ventures.
