Averaging over 10 years of affiliate marketing experience across all LinkConnector employees, the entire team are a mix of highly experienced account managers helping to drive their clients’ success.
Linkconnector + Publisher Discovery
The Publisher Discovery integration provides Linkconnector advertisers with access to our unique My Network recommender. This enables all LinkConnector merchants to view all the potential affiliate partners in the network. These are sorted by Relevance, Value and Total Score. The scores combine to indicate how potentially valuable each affiliate is likely to be to a specific merchant and how well they could perform.
Publisher Discovery uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to show merchants/advertisers the best potential affiliates/publishers on the network to recruit. These are ranked by how much revenue they they have potential to drive, as well as the relevancy of their content. Merchants can use filters to view pending or new affiliates; the sliders filter the lists down yet further to get the most relevant partners.
LinkConnector is the exclusive U.S. network offering this level of direct integration with Publisher Discovery. This integration not only allows merchants to view all affiliate information in the one place where they make a decision; it also allows for more precise results since recommendations consider specific affiliate performance throughout the LinkConnector network.
Leveraging AI, the Publisher Discovery app learns more along the way. The more the technology is used within a network, the better it becomes. Users of the tools have reported significant time saving of up to five hours a week compared to traditional search and recruiting techniques.
The additional detail in the app also gives users a better understanding of the prospects to make recruiting easier. Users can add to a favorites list to review later, or filter even further by choosing specific affiliate types.
