What will the affiliate market for online gambling look like in the coming years?
In last week's GPWA newsletter, our Did You Know cited a study commissioned by Forrester Consulting that said affiliate marketing in the U.S. is expected to generate $6.8 billion by 2020. Published in February 2016, the underlying research for the study was based on U.S. advertisers and publishers, and the report was focused on overall affiliate marketing, not on gaming-industry specific affiliate marketing.
