Affiliate Groups and Profiling

Easily profile and categorise affiliates into targeted and manageable groups.

We have just launched the feature for merchants to profile and categorise their affiliates into targeted and manageable groups. This feature whilst in the pipeline since we launched had never been implemented to a point that we were completely satisfied with and was represented in a way that would be recognisable to people that actively use social media channels. We have now done this and painstakingly programmed in the auto-complete features that any user of Facebook could easily understand and recognise. This auto completion compiles both individual users and the groups you have created, all you have to do is start typing letters into the “To” field of your message centre.

When creating groups you have the option to compile affiliates automatically by selecting the criteria in which a list will be populated or manually so you can choose the individual affiliates you would like in any given group.

The groups is a vital part of communicating with affiliates and ensures that your correspondences are relevant and targeted and will allow merchants to present offers of collaboration or improvement to inactive affiliates or reward the most active. The most common types of groups that are most valuable to merchants include but are not limited to:

  • High Performers
  • Low Performance
  • Inactive
  • Bloggers
  • New Affiliates etc…

Login to your accounts now to see the groups feature and start sending out targeted, personalised messages.
