It’s about that time of year again! Affiliate Summit East 2017 is coming up in six weeks and Apogee will be in attendance. Greg and Daniel will be taking meetings with affiliates, attending sessions, and making the most of this fantastic annual event.
Apogee is proud to announce our management of the Think Crucial affiliate program. Think Crucial, exclusive to the ShareASale network, sells a wide variety of “crucial” household items used every day—those items in the home that need replacing on a regular basis. Join today and promote stuff people need.
The discussion was Finding the Right Merchants on Apogee Live this week, as Greg walked us through his method of window shopping affiliate programs from an affiliate’s perspective. What should an affiliate look for in a merchant partner? What are the red flags? We looked at programs in the ShareASale network.
Affiliates complain regularly about shrinking affiliate commissions in their favorite programs across the industry. The trend is to lower payouts, reduce the tracking gap (cookie) and/or limit the number of products eligible for commissions. The ones speaking up are bloggers, datafeeders or SEO affiliates. They say brands aren’t listening to them and they don’t know how to reverse the trend.
