6 Tips to Activate Stagnant Affiliates

Posted on May 11th, 2012 by

There isn’t a single merchant on this world selling through affiliate programs that hasn’t got idle affiliates. These are affiliates that are not active, meaning that they don’t generate any sales or, worst case, they don’t even refer traffic for the merchant (no exposure for the merchant’s products). When labeling an affiliate as “inactive” from the time’s point of view, you should take into consideration his sales history (if any) – the frequency / amount of sales he was generating at one point – and also the type of product / services you sell through them.

Posted on December 30th, 2009 by

Here we are, in the end of 2009, patiently waiting for the New Year party and thinking about 2009, about the good and the bad and the next year :). We are all proud to have been able to enrich our software selling platforms with plenty of features, basically meant to help more vendors reach more clients.

And we were very happy to be rated as top eCommerce provider by our clients, in the survey made by Andy Brice.

Using advanced analytics applications such as Omniture and extensive A/B testing, we obtained control over every tiny detail of the shopping cart – and this flexibility translated into higher conversion rates.
