Hi everyone!

I would like to know how I could implement an affiliate program, please?

I don't know how to create a link or a promo code our potential customers or current customers could share with their network and reward them.

Something like a code they would share for 10% off for their network and they would get themselves 10% of the retail price in cash.

Would really be grateful for the help!

Thank you, 

Josephine

Hey, Josephine!

 

Julie here from Shopify Support.

 

It's great to hear that you're looking to implement an affiliate program. This is an excellent marketing tactic and a great way to generate sales. While you could create discount codes and have your affiliates share those with their referrals, the affiliate would not be tied to that particular discount code and thus wouldn't be receiving their referral bonus.

 

For that reason, merchants will typically use an app to manage their affiliate program. While @AiTrillion shared AAA - Affiliate Marketing PRO as one potential solution, I also wanted to share a few other options:

These apps all have great reviews and are quite popular. I recommend taking some time to explore each option, taking a look at their feature list, reviews, and screenshots, which will give you a good idea of what the app looks like. Under the Support section in each app About page, you'll also be able to access the developer's website, along with their FAQs. Some of these apps also offer free trials, so I suggest taking advantage of those; just make sure to uninstall whichever apps you no longer wish to use prior to the trial expiring so you won't be charged. 

 

As you continue creating your affiliate program, I recommend checking out our blog post, "The Beginner's Guide to Setting Up an Affiliate Program for Your Shopify Store". This is a comprehensive guide that will teach you everything you need to know about creating an affiliate program, from how to create one with Shopify apps, to how you can find and manage affiliates. I think you'll find it quite useful!

 

I hope this guides you in the right direction and I'm curious to know which app suits your needs the best. Feel free to respond here and let me know!

Hi Josephine,

 

You could take a look at Affiliate by Secomapp, it can help you to track Affiliate's performance on Affiliate link or coupon, maybe even SKU or customer email.

Hi there!

 

When you implement an affiliate program, there are some potential challenges.

  •       Clicks are wasted if visitors from certain regions cannot access the websites.
  •       Customer could leave if extra steps are needed, like select their local language.
  •       Some cannot find the information within the first few seconds of visiting the page, they will leave.

For affiliate marketers, to maximise conversion rates, it is important to minimise the roadblocks in user journey. Thus, you may want to consider Geo Links. When the visitor clicks on the link, it can auto take visitors to the most relevant website based on their geolocation address based on their IPs. If you are interested, you can look at this post: https://geotargetly.com/blog/how-affiliate-marketers-use-geo-links-to-maximise-conversion
