Working with Affiliate Email Marketers

  1. 1. Working With Affiliate Email Marketers Presented By: Francesco Fagnini Senior Director of Business Development, Customer Acquisition
  2. 2. Why Email Marketing? • Quality • Consumers who are acquired through this channel have high intent • 3rd best channel when it comes to quality after SEO and SEM • Incremental Online Acquisition Channel • Helps supplement internal consumer acquisition efforts
  3. 3. Types Email Marketers • Two types of email marketers • Websites with 1st party data • Affiliates with 3rd party data
  4. 4. Email Marketers with 1st Party Data • 1st party data • Tend to be website owners whose consumers opt in to receiving third party offers and/or a newsletter • Lifescript, monster.com etc… • They are usually better able to target consumer segments • Need to be flexible on price point • Many work on a CPM but are willing to switch to a CPA/CPL/CPS if it makes sense • Limited list size • List fatigue
  5. 5. Affiliate Email Marketers • 3rd party data • List management companies which email third party offers on the behalf of list owner • Are able to scale better • Manage multiple list • Cost effective • Will usually work on a CPA, CPL or CPS • They tend to have limited targeting capabilities • Many data management companies only receive a fraction of the data which is actually collected by the publisher/website • Highly competitive • Affiliate email marketing has become increasingly difficult as inbox deliverability has decreased and fewer companies exist today then in the past • Even if you have the best offer in your vertical this does not guarantee you will get traffic
  6. 6. Who to Work With • List management companies or affiliate networks • List management companies • Many list management companies also have networks which tend to be email focused • Are able to provide better insight because they email • Affiliate networks • Provide scale but have less insight because they are not mailing directly • Reputable • Work with companies who have a reputation for brand safety • Unlike a display ad if an email is sent with the wrong copy you can’t switch out the creative once it is sent
  7. 7. Working with Affiliate Email Marketers • Creating an offer which converts well • Simple conversion • Test drops tend to be small • An offer with too many filters tends to not to do well even if your payout is high • For example many affiliate email marketers would prefer to run a non geo restricted offer which pays less than be paid for certain geo restricted • mortgage • Monetize every consumer • Not every consumer is a fit for your product or service • Rather than passing on that consumer, help them find other offers or services that might be a better fit • For a mortgage offer you may choose to send someone who is not credit worthy information about credit repair • Help consumers who may be in an undesirable geo and or state • Co-opetition • Tracking • When working directly with list management companies or through networks we need to track at least two levels deep • List management companies can potentially have thousands of list parsed out in many different ways • Domain • Interest • Provider
