Voucher code affiliates steal sales from other affiliates and 'last click wins' is an outdated and unfair reward mechanism for affiliates.
Affiliate Marketing is full of these and other assumptions yet rarely has any in depth research been carried out to show whether these accepted truths are actually the case.
Having trawled the Affiliate Window database, chopping, splicing and scrutinising the reams of information available, Affiliate Window presents our findings on some generally accepted affiliate marketing assumptions and asks whether it's time to revise some of these commonly held beliefs.
Using actual merchant examples to illustrate how different variables can impact the performance of your programme such as what effect introducing vouchers, paid search activity and cashback sites can have on your campaign or whether rewarding all affiliates involved in a sale rather than just the last referrer is a fair and viable alternative, Affiliate Window will be offering some key considerations for merchants looking to take their programmes to the next level.
Aimed at affiliate managers and merchants who are looking to understand the value of their affiliate traffic within the wider online mix AffiliateWindow will aim to provide plenty of food for thought.
