Definitely some great info here. Haven't read it through entirely (and perhaps never will :P), but seriously anyone interested in the future of affiliate marketing, and online e-commerce should look through this ASAP!
Thanks for the post!

Seems logical. Comment on #5 though. While I'm sure the new mobile ad craze will gain momentum, I suspect advertisers will not find it as ROI efficient as desktop / laptop eyes and if so, I suspect if that is true, advertisers looking for sales at the time the ad is displayed will not include mobile ad displays.

I disagree Alan. I buy from my iphone all the time. In the store, checking against an amazon price. Click... amazon wins. Phones are more than just phones.
Agree with number 4 - OMG you have to be in video... which would go into my prediction he should add... this is the year people wake up and wonder what the hell they are doing wasting so much time in things like second life, video, twitter and blogs. Too much vanity, not enough results.
Second time around now people are going to remember eyeballs are not money, they are just an expense unless you monetize them.

Chet is right AGAIN ... Amazon is what's happening now ... My Amazon product sales are 20 times greater any other merchant so far this year except EBAY.
Videos just waste time, however, when I was surfing thru Traffic Swarm to check out the competition, I came a across a killer 15 second video, that did exactly what it was designed to do, trigger a click on the product link listed under the video window. I didn't buy the thing, because I didn't need it, but it was a most effective ad set up.
AM and such has always been about monetizing eyeball. Easier said than done though.
Obama-mama just posted a get ready for Armageddon warning concerning the economy. Time to trot out strategies used in the last Apocalypse that made money.

According to the article, the number of cell phone "high-performance browsers" is trending to reach 700 million by 2013 vs. 76 million now.
It says that according to AdMob (pushes five billion ads to Internet-enabled mobile handsets each month) Asia has overtaken North America as its largest regional market, as of last fall. Indonesia accounts for 1/4 of its total global ad traffic, making it the second-biggest market after the U.S.

it states that search advertising is where the money is going be at, while display advertising is going to struggle. in the affiliate game, alot of it is indeed display advertising (ie - coupon codes, banners, text links, etc), so should some of us be worried????
at any rate, great read and very good insight into the online realm for 2009.
