Wikipedia defines Affiliate Marketing as "a method of promoting web businesses (merchants/advertisers) in which an affiliate (publisher) is rewarded for every visitor, subscriber, customer, and/or sale provided through his/her efforts".
At GTP we call our affiliate program a "Rewards Program" because you reward people or businesses for every sale they generate for you. This is a fantastic idea and if you work it correctly using the right systems, you can have hundreds of people out their promoting your products on your web site, because they are financially rewarded for the sales they bring you.
The GTP iCommerce web site system comes standard with a ready to go comprehensive affiliate program to encourage new affiliates to join, track sales they generate for you and give you a way of rewarding them.
Attracting links from other web sites is made all that more easier because there is a rewards system in place. Web links work 24 hours a day to bring traffic to your site and you can reward the owner when sales are generated.
The best time to ask for a referral is straight after an existing customer has joined your newsletter, entered your online competition, been sent a voucher, or made a purchase with you. We work to maximise the amount of direct friend to friend referrals by targetting these opportunities.
With the GTP affiliate program, not only do you get more traffic from your affiliates, you will also get a boost in your search engine rankings because of the unique clean link technology methods that we use.
Unlike many other affiliate programs out in the marketplace, the GTP affiliate program is able to identify your affiliates from the incoming link information. What this means is that we do not need to put long and complex URLs in the web link. The benefits of this will be that search engines such as Google, Yahoo and Nine MSN will be more likely to increase your link popularity score as the number of your affiliates grows.
Make sure that your web site development company can offer you an integrated affiliate program solution with the additonal flexibility of adding in third-party affiliate programs as well, by calling GTP on 1300 856 533 or fill in our web site affiliate marketing contact form.
