As an advertiser on the Grow platform, we understand that building successful affiliate partnerships is a gradual process that extends beyond the initial onboarding phase. We encourage you to focus on the recruitment and engagement of affiliates to maximize the performance of your affiliate program.

Step 1 – Attract and Maintain Publishers

After you’ve set up your affiliate program with Grow, attracting and maintaining publishers is crucial for your program’s success. Reach out to affiliates directly and be proactive in engaging with them to strengthen your relationships. Consider how you can secure more exposure on their websites, feature in their communications, and gather feedback to continuously improve collaboration.

Step 2 – Analyze Publisher Performance

It’s important to monitor the performance of your affiliates on the Grow platform. Identify publishers who consistently drive sales for your products or services and think about how you can reward their efforts. This may involve offering a higher commission rate or providing them with exclusive incentives to promote your brand. It’s a best practice, for instance, to provide an exclusive discount code to a specialized voucher publisher. In return, they can feature your brand as a top offer on their site for a specified period.

Step 3 – Identify Gaps and Optimize

In the affiliate marketing world, it’s essential to identify any gaps in your program’s performance. Implement an affiliate gap analysis to uncover potential areas of improvement. This analysis will not only save time in finding new top-performing affiliates but also help you understand where optimization is needed.

Step 4 – Regular Program Cleanup

Just as in effective affiliate programs, it’s beneficial to conduct periodic reviews of your affiliate program. Remove any outdated creatives or offers to ensure that publishers have access to the most current and relevant promotional materials. In addition, assess the performance of affiliates who have not contributed to your program and consider contacting those who are not actively driving results to discuss how you can start the partnership.
