Affiliate marketing

Affiliate marketing is the purest form of performance marketing where an advertiser only pays for a successful outcome either as a percentage of the sale or a fixed cost for an action. This type of marketing relies on an ecosystem made up from affiliates (publishers), networks (tracking providers) and merchants (retailers) representing significant potential for marketers.

How we see it

Long gone are the days when affiliate publishers were sole traders operating out of a bedroom; now affiliate marketing has grown up and affiliates include some of the biggest websites in the UK. Managed correctly, the affiliate channel can provide a significant contribution to the marketing mix.

The challenge for advertisers ensuring an affiliate marketing program adds incremental value to existing campaigns. Often the value of sales claimed by affiliates can be distorted due to the last click attribution model, still the default for the channel which naturally favors cashback and voucher code sites over high quality content sites.

Only by understanding how an advertiser’s commercial model works is it possible to create the right structure to reward affiliates for pulling the correct levers. Tomorrow | TTH approach the affiliate marketing piece by putting in place a structured and transparent program that ensures that affiliates are rewarded for providing incremental sales. Whilst technology enables and connects the affiliate ecosystem, the sector is still built on partnerships and the key stones of trust and transparency.
