Retailers are bullish on affiliate marketing

Published 27.06.2012  Author:  Category: News

57% of online shoppers say they are more likely to purchase a product they see advertised on multiple web sites than if the same product were displayed only on retailer or brand sites, according to a new study from Forrester Consulting, a unit of Forrester Research Inc.

In addition, 48% of online shoppers say the promotional offers they find on coupon sites, blogs or other non-retailer affiliate marketing sites are often more valuable than the promotional offers they get directly from a retailer or brand site, the study adds.

With that kind of strong consumer response to affiliate marketing—which involves the use of paid listings on affiliate sites like coupon sites and blogs to direct online consumers to retailers’ sites—online merchants are planning to increase their spending on affiliate marketing by 16.6% per year over the next several years, from $2.08 billion in 2011 to $4.47 billion in 2016, the study says.

The study, “Affiliate Marketing–The Direct and Indirect Value that Affiliates Deliver to Advertisers,” was conducted in April and commissioned by Rakuten LinkShare Corp., a unit of Rakuten Inc. that operates a network of affiliate marketing web sites and other online marketing services. The study was based on a survey of more than 500 U.S.-based online buyers and several interviews with advertisers and operators of affiliate marketing sites.

The study also noted the following:

42% of online buyers who had made four or more purchases after responding to an affiliate ad said they were likely to try a new brand after seeing an offer on a non-retailer site.

52% of online buyers said they’d be willing to reconsider a brand they hadn’t used in a while after receiving a promotional offer from a non-retailer web site.

43% of online buyers said that promotional offers they find on affiliate marketing sites often help them decide to make a purchase.

74% of online buyers said they research two to three non-retailer web sites before completing a purchase decision.

65% of online buyers said they find it easier to find what they’re looking for on sites that feature products from multiple retailers or brands, compared with sites that feature only one retailer or brand.

Experience Advertising Launches Summertime Sweepstakes

Published 26.06.2012  Author: Editor  Category: News

Experience Advertising, a leading online marketing agency, has launched their summertime affiliate marketer iPad sweepstakes giveaway.

Three lucky affiliate marketers in the affiliate programs managed by Experience Advertising will win the new Apple iPad. Affiliate marketers need only submit their sweepstakes entry on Facebook for a chance to win the heavily sought-after prizes. The sweepstakes will run from June 25th, 2012 to July 25th, 2012.

"We are really excited to have launched another affiliate marketer sweepstakes giving away 3 iPads to the winners in the next 30 days," says Evan Weber, CEO of Experience Advertising, Inc. "We love awarding and rewarding our affiliate marketers just for being affiliate marketers in our managed affiliate accounts on the networks like Commission Junction (CJ), LinkShare, ShareASale, and Google Affiliate Network (GAN). All of the prizes in our sweepstakes and contests are guaranteed, in that they are awarded regardless of whether production levels are attained." Their "anyone can win" contest method creates a tremendous amount of buzz in the affiliate community.

Experience Advertising runs several affiliates sales contests during the course of the year on behalf of the advertisers and merchants they represent on the affiliate networks. Weber continues, "After running affiliate contests and sweepstakes for more than 10 years, we have learned what motivates affiliates into responding to our promotions. With our contests, we design them so any affiliate that produces a sale in the contest period can potentially win a prize, which motivates the entire program to increase activity and sales. With our affiliate sweepstakes, we are simply giving away prizes to affiliates that submit their entry and like our fan page on Facebook. It's a great way to connect with our affiliate marketers more socially and build the affiliate manager-affiliate relationship deeper, not to mention creating a tremendous amount of loyalty with the winners, who are completely ecstatic when they receive their prizes."

Experience Advertising is renowned in the affiliate community for running exciting sales contests throughout the year. "We know that running affiliate contests and sweepstakes increases both affiliate participation and sales significantly in our managed programs, which we demonstrate in sales and activity reports to our clients after the contest period. Our contests increase sales and participation by an average of 25% in the contest period over the previous month, not to mention increasing overall engagement across the affiliate base over time, so we have no problem presenting the case to our clients and getting the contest budget approved and signed off on. This is another way we differentiate ourselves from other affiliate management agencies; however, we are most concerned with standing out as the best, most helpful affiliate managers to our growing universe of affiliate marketers."

Experience Advertising provides agency services for companies of all sizes across several online marketing channels, including SEO, pay-per-click search, affiliate marketing, social media, conversion rate optimization, referral programs, and web-design.
