“You don’t want a bog-standard promo code strategy. Nor do you want to simply side-step the pitfalls of coupon campaigns. E-commerce is an increasingly competitive space. Every day, new brands bring their stores online, and e-commerce leaders constantly update and improve their strategies.
If you’re going to stand out online, you need creative strategies to help. Clever applications of promo codes are a great way to do that. However, the key to getting creative is investing in the kind of technology that will really allow you to cut loose.”

This side served merchants, affiliate managers, OPMs [outsourced program managers], marketing agencies and more.

“We have written many articles on the Influencer Marketing Hub, showing how successful influencer marketing can be for virtually any type of industry. This can be just as true for people who generally use other types of marketing. The general goal of all marketing is the same – to increase the exposure of some product to as many relevant people as possible (often with the intent to increase sales, either now or in the future).
Some firms outsource the marketing/selling of their products to others. One way of doing this is via affiliate marketing. Keen affiliates happily market and sell products for a portion fo the sales price. It makes sense, therefore, to combine the advantages of both influencer and affiliate marketing to power up your marketing success.”
