We are very excited to roll out the Shopatron Affiliate Network for our clients
Encino, CA (Vocus) July 20, 2010
Shopatron, the leading provider of eCommerce solutions to branded consumer goods manufacturers, is pleased to introduce the Shopatron Affiliate Network, a new feature included in the company’s onBlocks site and store platform. The Shopatron Affiliate Network consists of online marketing partners, recruited and managed by Shopatron, who get paid to send targeted, purchasing customers to Shopatron’s online stores.
Shopatron Affiliate Network sites range from large platform affiliates, such as the Google search engine, to small content affiliates who run a website dedicated to a subject such as camping, surfing or motherhood. These affiliates send highly-targeted visitors to Shopatron online stores looking for a product listed or mentioned on the affiliate site, resulting in incremental online sales.
Through the Shopatron Affiliate Network, Shopatron clients receive free brand exposure on participating affiliate sites. Fees are paid only when that exposure turns into a completed sale. And because Shopatron client brands send their online sales to authorized retailers for fulfillment, everyone wins – customers, retailers and the brand.
“We are very excited to roll out the Shopatron Affiliate Network for our clients,” said Mark Grondin, SVP of Marketing at Shopatron. “The affiliate network adds a new benefit to the partners deployed on our onBlocks site and store platform. Shopatron has always helped clients build and run online stores, but now we bring paying customers into those stores. And best of all,” he added, “with almost ten years of experience in eCommerce and online marketing, our team understands how the online ecosystem functions. Our specialists work closely with affiliates to provide the highest-quality traffic at the best possible price.”
Implementing the Shopatron Affiliate Network is easy. It comes standard with every onBlocks installation. Shopatron does all the work in sourcing, filtering and organizing potential traffic sources. When a visitor makes a purchase on a Shopatron-enabled eCommerce site, the fulfiller of the order pays a small fee to the marketing partner for generating the order. All costs are communicated to the fulfillment partner in an easy to follow format when an order is placed into the Shopatron order exchange.
