History of Affiliate Marketing [INFOGRAPHIC]

The progression of the affiliate marketing industry over the past 24 years has been a culmination of new networks, government regulations, multimillion dollar acquisitions and, of course, massive increases in the numbers of affiliates. In preparation for Affiliate Summit East, we’re excited to share our new infographic that outlines the history of affiliate marketing.

In preparation for Affiliate Summit East (only 40 days away!), we have put together an infographic outlining the history of affiliate marketing. The progression of the affiliate marketing industry over the past 24 years has been a culmination of new networks, government regulations, multimillion dollar acquisitions and, of course, massive increases in the number of affiliates. Affiliate marketing is constantly evolving and with affiliate spending estimated to top $4.1 billion in 2014, it doesn’t appear to be going anywhere.
