I've been contacted outside of Shopify regarding an Affiliate arrangement.   Should I be using an affiliate strictly through the APP store? And, if so, are there any recommendations?

Thank you.

This is an accepted solution.

I think you consider about finding your affiliates in the Marketplace, and find an app to manage them. With me, I found my affiliates in the UpPromote Marketplace. I list all my offers here, and affiliates would contact if my information are qualified with them. The more information you provide, the more ability that affiliate can reach you. For managing and tracking my team, I am using UpPromote: Affiliate Marketing,  cause it offer FREE PLAN with various features. And it was suitable with me when I wasted a lot money for my previous fail marketing plan. I strongly believe with this marketing solution because I don't need to invest any high cost for marketing plan but you still promote your products. In the past, I lost much money for running Fb ad, Ig ads with no result. And now, finally, I am happy when I have positive results, the sales comes everyday. I think if I send more time for this campaign, the sales will be improved greatly. I hope my recommendation is suitable with your issue! Good luck!

Hi @cykapu_com,

I used many affiliate apps before, however, I am using UpPromote at the moment. Here are my tips how I find my qualified affiliates:

 

1. Using UpPromote Marketplace

-From my experience, you can list your shop information, all offers and commission details on UpPromote Marketplace. The affiliates will find you if your offers are qualified with their needs. Most of the affiliates in my team are from here. The affiliates have an option to filter offers by categories, payment method, commission structure and even lifetime commission, offer format applies to all profiles, so the more information is provided, the more possibility it is that affiliates are interested in yours.

 

2, Convert customers into your affiliates

In fact, customers are a potential sales channel that helps to promote your brand in a way that traditional marketing cannot. You can go to the app and easily generate a post-purchase popup with your own message to invite people to join your win-win affiliate program. As long as any customer successfully places an order from your shop, a popup will be shown up on the Thank you page  to introduce your affiliate program.

An useful tip for you is that  you can create a separate commission program only for converted customers. With this way, you can manage sales performance from your loyal customers, as well offer specific commission for this group only. In fact, happy customers are more likely to share their experience with positive words, and this is especially true when they can be well rewarded. That is also a great way to keep your customers as loyal customers.

3. Using Multi-level Marketing:

 Multi-level marketing (MLM) allows each affiliate to invite and recruit others into your network. Whenever a downline affiliate successfully brings an order, the upline one gets their extra reward. You can use UpPromote to set up MLM strategy with unlimited distributors. Your products can be delivered effectively to your customers without extra costs for building a customer service team or advertising strategy. 

To easily understand, you can imagine that John is your affiliate and he invites his friend - Michelle to join your ambassador program. As long as Michelle makes any successful orders, Michelle will get a commission from those orders, and John also gets commission because he is upline of Michelle. John understands that the more products Bill can be able to sell, the more money John’ll get. Obviously, this feature not only motivates John to grow your affiliate network but also inspires him to push Michelle to work harder for bringing benefits for both.

4. On social media

 

You can search on the search bar of those tools with keywords of your niche market, especially, search with hashtags of your business to see who’ve posted about your brand or look up the relevant suggested keywords to find influencers that post about your industry.

On Instagram, when you click to follow an influencer, a list of relevant people will be shown below, you can take them all into consideration.

Besides, do a quick research on your customers to see who their favorite influencers are, who they follow and who they normally come to when having intention to buy an item of your brand.

I hope my recommendation is helpful with you.

Good luck!

Hi @cykapu_com ,

You may also want to try some things my merchants have had success with: 

  1. Email marketing - Send an email invitation to customers with the benefits of your affiliate program. 
  2. Search for your best customers in Shopify. In Shopify admin, you can filter by customer's total value. Your top paying customers are often your best affiliates - they may already be promoting your products to friends and family! 
  3. Add it to your navigation. Many of my merchants have added a link to their main navigation that says "Become an affiliate" or "Join the team". Some take it a step further by having a section on their front page. 

Best of luck with your affiliate program! And if you want to try out my app, you can find it here
