Affiliate Marketing Predictions for 2020

Today is the start of a new year and a brand-new decade, for me this year has been like two years, I had a rough start of the year but around June things changed a lot and I am very grateful for this.

Affiliate Marketing Predictions for 2020

Each year there are some trends and new things in online business area and affiliate marketing, here are my affiliate marketing predictions for 2020.

Influencers will be more important

Influencers are very important part of online marketing; they have a lot of followers and they use that advantage to make money. I think in 2020, influencers will be even bigger so if do you want to get a piece of pie it is time to start becoming an online influencer.

Voice searches will increase

The world is changing toward voice technology, the introduction of smart voice devices like Alexa etc. will have huge impact in voice searches, so it is time to start producing content in form of voice,

Increased need for mobile-friendly content

One of my sports blogs get 60% of visitors from mobile devices (this one is still below 18%), my prediction is that with many people having access to mobile devices, we will see an increase in users who consume our content from mobile devices, it is time to optimize content to be mobile-friendly.

Ecommerce retailers will expand their affiliate marketing programs

From my experience, I think the e-commerce buzz slowed down las year 2019, and in order to get it back most of the e-commerce retailers will have to expand their affiliate marketing programs.

Push traffic may slow down

I really not a fan of push traffic, and I have seen the trends decreasing toward the end of 2019, I think we will see the same in 2020.

Affiliate marketing programs will get an increased share of marketing dollars

Online business has become very competitive and I think most of affiliate marketing programs will have to adjust their payout structure to attract bigger affiliate marketers, we will see this happening in 2020.

More affiliate marketing agencies will be created

Since affiliate marketing will be more competitive and the amount of investment in affiliate marketing programs will increase, I think more affiliate marketing agencies will be created as a result of this.

Content will still be a king

It does not matter what type of content you produce, It can be written, audio or video, the content will still be the king on digital marketing, the more quality content you put out there the more success you will get.

You will get an email telling you the death of email marketing

This makes me laugh, each year you will get an email from a guru telling you that email marketing is dead using email trying to sell you the new shiny object, this trend will continue in 2020.

New companies will emerge trying to kill big brands online

Each year you will hear a new brand telling people that they came to kill big brands in affiliate marketing like Clickbank, Clickfunnels, Aweber, etc. this trend will continue this year.

That is it this is my affiliate marketing predictions for 2020, how many of them do you think will happen? Which one do you think I left out? Let me know in the comment section below.
