Affiliate marketing trends 2024
Here they are — the latest affiliate marketing trends we are waiting for. Some are new trends in affiliate marketing, some are kept from the last year or even two and more, but let’s take a look at them all.
AI On Center Stage
ChatGPT has become a real sensation. However, unlike many high-profile one-day projects, this revolution is obviously with us for a long time. It really can and should be used for good: it helps automate tasks, increase efficiency, and generally does a great job. We discussed how not to be afraid of neural networks.
Focus On First-Party Data
This is the second year that talks about the death of cookies have not subsided. In 2024, this will finally catch up with us and force us to adapt completely. Third-party data — off, a huge shift to first-party data and contextual targeting — on.
Focus on Social Proof
Public opinion is gaining momentum and this will have to be taken into account — at least that’s what experts think. Facebook groups, Reddit, Quora, Medium, Discord, and Mighty Networks are entering the arena.
Trends in creatives: briefness, personalization, opinion
Continuing the previous trend, we are to discuss that users increasingly aim for personalization. This is the new honesty that will bring you trust and, therefore, clients. Preferences, interests, behavior — everything is equally important.
Top profitable niches
The statistics are unanimous: iGaming, e-com, VPN, finance (trading) continue to grow and are not going to slow down.
Growing popularity of video content as high converting content
For our part, we noted an increase in interest in video advertising. Overall, in 2023, 91% of businesses used video in one way or another in their marketing strategies. So the numbers say one thing: working with video is profitable.
MENA regions are the key to successful GEO 2024 strategy. LATAM, India, Asia (Bangladesh, Philippines), South Africa, and also Canada when it comes to iGaming.
Stricter Compliance and Transparency
We continue to develop the theme of honesty for trust: users are tired of content for the sake of content and, alas, disrespect on the Internet. This has been brewing for a long time, but next year it will become even more noticeable and will require special efforts from all of us. Adsterra has always stood only for high-quality traffic and whitehat methods for both partners and users, so we simply continue supporting our policy and advise you to do the same.
Increase in Mobile Commerce and mobile traffic
A nice trend: smartphones have been firmly established in our lives for a long time and continue to capture more and more attention. Shopping, personal content, work — everything lives on the phone, so it’s not surprising that mobile traffic has long surpassed desktop one in volume.
Influencers on the center stage
Direct cooperation with influencers and micro-influencers remains relevant. It’s time to use it and get your piece of the pie.
Adsterra’s plans & new horizons to reach
Adsterra did a great job in 2023: you can read more about our year-end results in this traditional annual post. But, in terms of the conversation about trends and prospects, let us note that our growth does not end there.
In 2024, you will find even more high-quality traffic, more cool templates and, of course, more educational and profitable in use relevant content. And in a year, we will quite possibly gather again and discuss which affiliate trends met our expectations and which turned out to be just dreams.To Contents ↑
