When Adstart Media just started their business in early 2017, the market was already full with a variety of affiliate tracking platforms. But being a young company Adstart media was looking for a tech solution that could also minimize their operational costs. With most of the platforms charging for clicks, many affiliate platforms were not an option at all.
The first steps in every affiliate journey require a lot of testing and usually bring tons of non-converting traffic. Adstart Media couldn't afford to pay in vain. Additionally, they wanted to find a platform that not only optimizes the ad spends but also provides strong analytics with numerous data slices.
It is our Marketplace and Bible for our day to day operations
Being a startup with a high desire to break the status quo, Adstart Media was looking for a young and promising tech provider. And they chose Affise as their affiliate platform for tracking, analyzing, and accumulating data on a daily basis.
Affise was able to offer them what others couldn't - full budget control owing to the performance-based pricing model. Unlike other platforms, Affise had a billing system based only on conversions, rather than clicks or impressions. In other words, it means that Adstart Media was paying only when they were making money. For a new network, this was a vital step that determined their growth.
