The nature of this relationship helps your e-commerce site by driving more visitors to your page and reaching a new audience you might not otherwise connect with. Plus, you are able to take advantage of and access to this new network of customers without any upfront costs unlike traditional marketing strategies which would require you to invest in new marketing campaigns for each new audience.”

Performance Partnerships 101: Technology


“Technology plays an essential role in the Performance Partnerships® framework.

You and your partners could have a mutually beneficial, transparent partnership that’s based on trust and respect and be completely aligned with a cost per action compensation structure. However, if the technology isn’t in place, managing, scaling, tracking and measuring the performance of these partnerships in an efficient way is virtually impossible.
