Affiliate marketing attracts a lot of product owners, as it is one of the most effective ways to reach wider audience and make a bigger profit. But how complicated is it to start promoting your products through affiliates? When you enter the industry you need to consider numerous issues from building relations with affiliates and choosing a payment scheme to tracking methods and technical capabilities. And of course, the biggest question is which affiliate marketing software to choose.
Affiliate marketing software will automate and run all relevant tasks for you. It provides everything to manage, track, analyse and optimise your online advertising campaigns in real-time. Using it you will be able to:
The most fundamental is the technology type itself, you can either build your own in-house solutions or use already functioning SaaS platform.
An in-house solution is attractive in terms of having your own server with your own database. You don’t store any data or statistics on servers of the affiliate software provider. Everything is under your control. But at the same time, it is pretty troublesome as you are the one responsible for all updates, settings, errors etc.
The other option is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform, which is installed and hosted on the software’s servers. There is no complicated software installation, what guarantees you a quick start. SaaS platforms are subscription-based, what means lower initial expenses. Instead of directing resources to building something from a scratch, you concentrate on building relations with affiliates and promoting your products. SaaS provider is responsible for all updates and upgrades and any technical support you may need.
The amount of issues to consider in advance might sound alarming, especially for those who is just about to start. But if you approach this responsibly and choose a reliable software provider, you have nothing to worry about.
