WHAT IS AFFILIATE MARKETING?
Affiliate marketing, sometimes called performance marketing, allows third parties to sell your products or services online for a percentage of the profits. This “online sales force” can be a powerful tool in your Internet marketing toolbox.
Local Bump has managed many different types of affiliate marketing programs. We’ve handled everything, from businesses selling subscription services to large e-commerce sites selling thousands of products online.
Affiliate Marketing Helps with Branding
Typically, affiliates work on a Cost Per Acquisition pay structure so you don’t have to worry about paying them salary or hourly if they don’t bring in the sales. This will also encourage the affiliates to make more profit. With out any sales, they receive nothing in return.
Some Affiliate Marketing programs require an affiliate to place your banner on their page, or mention your brand in their blog posts. Regardless of the direction you want your affiliate marketing to go, it is a great way to get your name out there. With Affiliate Marketing, hundreds, if not thousands of people are advertising for your product and service.
Affiliate Marketing is Easy
You are simply giving people the option to sell your product, if they sell, they get a percentage. It is a win-win situation for both the affiliate and the company. It’s like having your own personal sales team without the headache of having to manage them. Here at Local Bump we strive to fully understand each clients’ individual needs. Every business is unique, and an internet marketing plan should be as distinct as the business it is designed to grow. Contact us today to discuss your affiliate marketing needs.
