Affiliate marketing was a new strategy for Advertiser to increase its brand awareness and sales in the digital space.
Advertiser teamed up with Involve and set up an affiliate program & connect with potential Partners.
Here’s how Advertiser’s affiliate program drove an 8x sales increase in 2 months.
Setting Up An Affiliate Program at Involve
Partnering with Involve, there are two main objectives for Advertiser:
- Optimise and grow Advertiser’s e-commerce sales & brand awareness to Partners in Malaysia
- Increase Partner participation in promoting Advertiser
Advertiser launched its affiliate program in July 2021. It is currently evolving & optimising to date. No specific budget was given for running this launch campaign since Involve only charges Advertiser based on successful online sales.
For the affiliate program, the Offer page is set up at Involve platform to:
- Attract potential Partners to promote the brand
- Suggest strategic affiliate partnership with Partners
Onboarding Potential Partners
New & existing Partners were invited to sign up for the Advertiser’s affiliate program to encourage Partners to promote health & beauty products on their platforms.
Advertiser will give the following commissions to Partners when customers purchase items through the Partners’ Involve affiliate links
- Non-exclusive products – 2.1% commission
- Exclusive products – 3.5% commission
Partners were informed about the Advertiser’s affiliate program via Featured Offer on Involve Dashboard & e-mail marketing. Involve also let Partners know about Advertiser’s ongoing campaigns via weekly e-mails.
We linked Advertiser with potential Partners based on their health, beauty, and shopping niche. Partners were selected based on the following criteria:
- Engagement rate
