Affiliate Flash’s Take:

Affiliate marketing is a results driven industry that usually values cold, hard conversion over brand image and customer satisfaction.

Because of this, aggressive advertising can be seen by many as a successful affiliate marketer's bread and butter, but that doesn’t mean affiliates should disregard these kinds of studies.

Of course, how affiliates choose to advertise is influenced by the kind of product they are selling and their relationship with the brand. Aggressive advertising can produce short-term results, but can also be harmful to the brand’s reputation and create long-term consequences.

If an affiliate intends to have a long term working relationship with a brand or product, it may be beneficial to take the results of studies like these into account and tweak their campaigns accordingly.
