Affiliates were among the earliest adopters of pay per click advertising when the first pay-per-click search engines emerged during the end of the 1990s. Later in 2000 Google launched its pay per click service, Google AdWords, which is responsible for the widespread use and acceptance of pay per click as an advertising channel. An increasing number of merchants engaged in pay per click advertising, either directly or via a search marketing agency, and realized that this space was already occupied by their affiliates. Although this situation alone created advertising channel conflicts and debates between advertisers and affiliates, the largest issue concerned affiliates bidding on advertisers names, brands, and trademarks.[39] Several advertisers began to adjust their affiliate program terms to prohibit their affiliates from bidding on those type of keywords. Some advertisers, however, did and still do embrace this behavior, going so far as to allow, or even encourage, affiliates to bid on any term, including the advertiser's trademarks.
Companies often use email marketing to re-engage past customers, but a “Where’d You Go? Want To Buy This?” message can come across as aggressive, and you want to be careful with your wording to cultivate a long-term email subscriber. This is why JetBlue’s one year re-engagement email works so well -- it uses humor to convey a sense of friendliness and fun, while simultaneously reminding an old email subscriber they might want to check out some of JetBlue’s new flight deals.
Scoring de captación: Este tipo de modelos están relacionadas con los procesos de captación de nuevos clientes para una base de datos. Gracias a ellos, se puede descubrir si los usuarios están cualificados para iniciar el acercamiento comercial o no. En caso que se confirme su madurez, es posible recurrir a un modelo determinado que permitirá lanzar promociones que les impulsen a continuar avanzando en su proceso de compra. 

Siguiendo el caso de María, imagina que ella ofrece un vídeo a sus potenciales clientes en una landing page de captación. Automáticamente, cuando los potenciales clientes dejan sus datos ella les redirige a una landing page de oferta donde ofrece una sesión con ella con un 50% de descuento. En vez de venderla a 150 dólares la venderá a tan sólo 75 dólares.  En su pitch le deja claro al cliente que con el vídeo gratuito podrá implementar él solo, pero con su sesión podrá hacerlo con ella de la mano. María presionará al cliente con un contador y con un texto o vídeo a través del cual explica que si el cliente cierra la página nunca más podrá acceder a la oferta de la sesión. Este tipo de acciones te parecerán agresivas pero son muy efectivas si hemos captado a buenos potenciales clientes.


In November 1994, CDNow launched its BuyWeb program. CDNow had the idea that music-oriented websites could review or list albums on their pages that their visitors might be interested in purchasing. These websites could also offer a link that would take visitors directly to CDNow to purchase the albums. The idea for remote purchasing originally arose from conversations with music label Geffen Records in the fall of 1994. The management at Geffen wanted to sell its artists' CD's directly from its website but did not want to implement this capability itself. Geffen asked CDNow if it could design a program where CDNow would handle the order fulfillment. Geffen realized that CDNow could link directly from the artist on its website to Geffen's website, bypassing the CDNow home page and going directly to an artist's music page.[13]
