Affiliates could be the secret to increasing your direct sales.
|……..An affiliate is an organisation, person or business that participates in the marketing and promotion of products and services from another company in exchange for a commission or payment once certain results are produced. Results can vary and the terms are usually set by the product creators or those offering the services.
Results Based Marketing
……..Because of the value provided to a business by a results based marketing strategy, such strategies have become immensely popular in the online world. As opposed to paying upfront on the promise of results from an advertising agency and taking a risk on the investment that you make, commissions are paid only when a certain term or goal is reached thereby eliminating a large portion of the risk factors involved. An affiliate’s terms of commission could simply be the sale of a product or funnelling new potential customers to the business and getting them to take action, for example completing a survey or downloading a free trial of a software product. This method of marketing also saves a lot of effort to the product creators by passing a large part of the responsibility of marketing the product to the audience and drastically cuts down on the amount of work and cost that would be included in any traditional marketing campaign.
……..Hosted Affiliates is the personal online sales representative that could save you thousands. Traditional affiliate marketing relies on marketing companies who manage and control a marketing plan for your business and then contact affiliate agencies who then promote the product. This usually comes with a huge price tag which for smaller companies can sometimes be simply too expensive.
……..Our solution can easily be managed by an in house team for a significantly lower cost making this the perfect choice for sole business owners and small private businesses.
