According to ISBSWorld, revenue from online auctions and e-commerce experienced astounding growth at a cumulative rate of 469% from 2000 to 2009, out performing most retail sectors and making the category the third fastest growing industry behind only VoIP and Search Engines. Looking ahead, a 125% growth rate is projected through 2019. Considering the 67% increase in Affiliate Marketing Program investments in 2010, it is no wonder that with the continued uncertainty of the job market and peopleâ€™s desire to become independent, more people turned to affiliate marketing last year than ever before.
Top online auction site eBid (www.ebid.net), announced today that is preparing the launch of its new affiliate marketing program with Commission Junction, the largest pay-for-performance marketing network in the world. Commission Junction will provide eBid affiliates with trusted third party tracking, real-time reporting and monthly commissions.
â€œThe online auction and e-commerce market is a $95 Billion industry with healthy growth projected. Connecting millions of people around the world since 1999, our position as the leading eBay alternative online auction site, coupled with our new program gives affiliates a solid foundation and an unmatched opportunity to earn high paying commissions,â€� says eBid co-founder Gary Sewell. â€œThe partnership will allow eBid to more broadly reach affiliate marketers, entrepreneurs, work-at-home-moms, and opportunity seekers looking to buck the recession and earn significant extra income promoting a solid online auction brand.â€�
