Affiliate marketing is about growing audiences among groups of users already interested in your product sector, and building the key relationships with the right publishers that can help you reach the highest quality leads for engagement with your brand or product sales.
What Is Affiliate Marketing?
Traditional digital advertising, like paid social (think Facebook and Instagram) or paid search (Google and Bing), can make you “pay per click” (or impressions), meaning that each user that sees your ads or arrives on your site via these channels will cost you some of your advertising spend. With affiliate marketing, it’s a little bit different: you pay a percentage of your sales as commission to the publishers who bring users to your site.
- Affiliate Marketing Advantage 1: You only pay for users once a sale is achieved.
- Affiliate Marketing Advantage 2: You don’t have to do the legwork of building up detailed targeting structures because the publishers are out there working on your behalf.
“Affiliate” and “publisher” are interchangeable terms for the partners that carry active links back to your site and products. They receive a commission for the traffic they send you which converts. Williams Commerce works with the best tools to find and vet appropriate affiliates for your business.
These industry-leading platforms allow us to both take on “in-bound affiliates”—partners that apply to us to represent your products—as well as reach “outbound affiliates” like influencers, vloggers, video creators and other sector heavyweights that we will approach for you. We also do the work necessary to make sure all affiliates meet the high standards of your brand.
We work with a range of affiliate platforms because we know that every brand is different, and the bespoke affiliate campaign we build for you shouldn’t be constrained by any exclusive platform partnerships we hold.
We do make sure that any affiliate platform we work with have excellent fraud prevention, so suspect affiliates are filtered out before they ever become an issue.
