Publisher Promotional Methods
Content and Community
Content & Community websites generate traffic by sharing information, opinions and personal experiences that provide value (or simply entertainment) for visitors. Content & Community publishers usually earn affiliate commissions by writing or featuring products and services from the advertisers' they have relationships with.
Incentives, Loyalty and Rewards
Chances are if you own a credit card you are already familiar with Loyalty & Rewards programs, where consumers are rewarded with cash back, membership points or even airline miles for their purchases.. Some loyalty programs count their membership in the millions, providing advertisers with a large audience that is intending to make a purchase.
Affiliate marketing publishers in the search category focus on using paid search placements to earn commissions. Search publishers use search engine marketing (SEM) practices to bid on keywords or achieve placement on search engines throughthe optimization of underused keywords, display URLs and landing pages.
Shopping, Coupons and Deals
Savvy shopping is smart shopping, and publishers in the Shopping, Coupons and Deals category realize consumers are constantly comparing companies (and products) on the internet in hopes of finding the best deal available. These publishers create a shopping experience that offers consumers everything from discount coupons to price comparison features in hopes of earning a commission by sending the user to an advertiser's website to complete the purchase for the best deal.
Software & Technology
Software & Technology publishers develop and distribute browser plugin and toolbars to alert consumers when deals or coupons are available on the sites that they visit.
Ad network publishers work with Commission Junction to extend the reach of advertiser programs beyond typical affiliate websites.
