My Affiliate Marketing Predictions for 2019

Affiliate marketing is one of the most exciting careers in digital marketing. It is predicted to be a 6.8 billion dollar industry in 2020. I know it is very difficult to predict because it keeps changing each year but I will do my best and this is my affiliate marketing prediction for 2019.

My Affiliate Marketing Predictions for 2019


Content will still be a King

They say content is a King, and they are right, I think content marketing will still be a King in 2019, it won’t matter if you are using free or paid methods to attract new prospects, you will need to créate a great piece of content.

So keep producing content in any of the three forms (text, audio, and video) and you will be ok.

Influencers will keep dominating

There is a significant growth in influencer marketing, in 2018, we have seen people with a large following in social media making the most money in this industry.

People they tend to believe influencers, so if you want to make it in 2019, it is a time to start building your online following, this can be building an email list, getting twitter followers, Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest etc.

If you can influence 1000 people to take any kind of action, you will become very successful in this industry.

Mobile will keep raising

The rise of mobile is not really new, but I think it’s at the most underestimated part of affiliate marketing or digital marketing in general.

Mobile is around for 10 years, but it’s not used to the full extent in many affiliate programs or digital marketing activities.

People they use voice searches from their phones and almost they use their phones for almost everything including searching and purchasing products and services online.

One of my niche sites gets more than 98% of its visitors from mobile visitors this week.

Voice and Video will keep raising

Voice search is a rather new topic, but with a massive push from big players like Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google. So this will have a big impact on our lives in the future, on the life of our customers, on our business life and on affiliate marketing.

It is estimated that by 2020 more than 50% of online searches will be voice search, also we will see an increase of podcasts and video marketing.

Advertising cost will increase

This is not a secret, advertising cost has been increasing each and every year and I think for this year 2019 it will be the same. You will have to pay a lot more for a click

Funnels will become more popular

Because of an increase in advertising cost, smart marketers will optime more their funnels in order to increase their earnings per click. So knowing about how to create and optimize a marketing funnel will be a must-have skill in 2019.

Most affiliate marketers will struggle or quit

I know it sounds like cliché but I am really serious about this, there are many studies that only 4% of all people who try to make money online fail.

This trend will continue in 2019, most people they won’t make any money online in 2019, and the large percentage of those individuals will quit and go to find a ‘real job’ and call everything about affiliate marketing a scam.
