LinkConnector’s Newest Technology, Shareable Offers, Gives Consumers the Ability to Dynamically Share Offers from Affiliate Sites, Giving Merchant Offers and Promotions the Opportunity to Go Viral
Cary, NC — February 27, 2013 — LinkConnector, a leading Performance Marketing Network providing Affiliate Marketing, Tracking and Agency services to some of the Internet’s largest retailers, announced today that they have launched Shareable Offers, new technology that expands the reach of merchant offers and promotions to increase affiliate earning potential. Shareable Offers gives consumers the ability to dynamically share offers from affiliate sites onto social media networks, such as Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. Merchant promotions then have the opportunity to go viral with the LinkConnector affiliate receiving the credit.
LinkConnector affiliates may select which merchant offers they wish to make shareable from within their LC Affiliate Manager interface. Affiliates are able to customize features of creative that can be shared, such as which social networks they wish to include, positioning of the social network icons, and how social network icons are displayed. A creative can be configured so that when a user on an affiliate site hovers over a creative with Shareable Offer enabled, the icons appear allowing the user to easily share/post the offer within the desired social network. So, as friends or followers click on the offer in any of these social networks, LinkConnector affiliate tracking code is triggered.
“Affiliates now have the capacity to engage their website visitors in an interesting new way and enable them to become an extension of a merchant’s sales force,” said Tara McCommons, Director of Sales and Affiliate Relations for LinkConnector. “Consumers gain a sense of control over website content, merchants gain an extension of their promotions, and affiliates reap greater sales and revenues.”
