New York, New York (PRWEB) February 26, 2008
Encyclopedia Britannica, an innovator of online research and education, has outsourced affiliate program management to NETexponent, a leading, performance based online marketing agency. The affiliate agency will look to increase online subscriptions and store order volume through affiliate recruitment and affiliate optimization for its educational subscription site, Britannica.com and e-commerce site Store.Britannica.com. Britannica is proud to provide its affiliates with three industry leading resources in Commission Junction (CJ), Performics, and NETexponent.
Britannica currently has a successful affiliate program using the Performics technology platform and with the help of NETexponent has expanded with the launch of a program in Commission Junction. This dual program strategy will allow affiliates to choose their preferred affiliate technology. Affiliates interested in promoting Britannica's educational materials can apply directly through CJ or Performics.
Britannica is offering affiliates commission rates starting at 10% for both subscription leads and store purchases for up to 30 days after the initial online referral. Affiliates interested in becoming a part of the program or who would like more information, can contact Britannica's affiliate manager at mailto: britannica @ netexponent.com.
"We've seen a lot of success in our affiliate program, but realize there's also a huge opportunity to expand," said Ken Polson, Britannica's Director of Consumer Acquisition Marketing. "We believe NETexponent has the proven expertise, people, and affiliate management tools to take our program to the next level".
Along with a unique team based approach, NETexponent can offer Britannica a database of proven, top affiliates and provide participating affiliates access to a staff of people dedicated to servicing affiliate needs and optimizing overall program performance. "Over the last seven years, we've developed strong relationships with several top rated publishers and developed affiliate management best practices based on their input and our experience," said Peter Figueredo, CEO and NETexponent Co-Founder. "We can utilize these one-to-one relationships and learning to fully promote Britannica and their educational services."
