The secrets of Search Engine Advertising
Search Engine Advertising is an established performance marketing channel, commanding large budgets. However, it is impossible to cover every angle effectively and that is where SEA via affiliates can ensure advertisers their campaigns are optimised and as effective as they can be. The goal of course is not only clicks; but an effective incremental Return on Advertising Spend (ROAS).

Traffic is bought by publishers through advertisements in search engines. The landing page is the publisher’s website with the affiliate link or a direct link to the website where the purchase is to be made. SEA has a high conversion rate because advertisers know not only the key words consumers are searching for but can also measure the current trend (finger on the pulse), as it shifts at any given time. It is important, that advertisers and publishers work closely together to monitor the efficiency of the campaigns.
