Affiliate Program Merchant Facts and Figures STATE OF THE INDUSTRY IN AFFILIATE MARKETING Over fourteen-hundred affiliates were surveyed on their methods, preferences, and strategies for the 2012 Affiliate Summit AffStat Report. This section features the results of the survey. Most affiliates work in a vacuum, and scant data exists to tell the story of the affiliate marketer. As an industry, we are rich in speculation, but poor when it comes to aggregating the facts and figures that drive this business. Take a look at the following results. You are bound to find some surprises and think twice about the way you operate as an affiliate, merchant, network, or vendor.
