The increased commission allows affiliates to spend over twice what they can afford to spend with lesser-commissioned similar programs, in order to make the same profit. This gives Boost Affiliates sizable advantages over competitors.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) February 18, 2014
Boost Software®, the Microsoft Gold Development Partner that is the mother company for the popular PC HealthBoost™ software, announced a 100+% boost to affiliate commissions on the Boost Affiliates Blog. The move increases commission for sales of PC HealthBoost™ to $50 from the previous rate around $24.
The Boost Affiliates program first announced the increased commission rate on Sunday, January 12 at Affiliate Summit West 2014 (ASW14). The software firm later made the offer available to all affiliates and potential affiliates via the Boost Affiliates blog.
Affiliates who desired a $50 commission on the software previously had to sell consumers on the idea of a two-year license—a difficult sell for first time users. Once computer owners have used the software for a year, large percentages are very happy to extend the license for another year. That is one reason Boost Software™ made the decision to increase commissions.
“It's just plain fair to our affiliates,” says Amit Mehta, CEO and Co-Founder of Boost Software. “While we don't have a 100% renewal rate, we do make a lot of renewal sales due in no small part to our affiliates' efforts.”
Commissions for registry cleaning programs typically stay at the $30-and-under mark, with many hovering around $21 commissions.
Mehta and company co-founder Peter Dunbar also have another goal in mind:
“We're also doing our best to make PC HeatlhBoost a household name. I think these increased commissions fit in with that effort,” explained COO, Peter Dunbar
“One way the $50 CPA commission will help this effort,” Dunbar says, “is that it will increase the amount of money affiliates are able to spend to make each sale. The increased commission allows affiliates to spend over twice what they can afford to spend with lesser-commissioned similar programs, in order to make the same profit. This gives Boost Affiliates sizable advantages over competitors.”
Towards that end, the two have integrated U.S.-based customer support for the software—something most registry cleaning programs lack. The owners cite this as one factor in the software's longevity. They also cite this—as well as a robust product build—as a major factor in the software's low refund rate.
“PC HealthBoost's refund rate is just under half of the industry average,” he says. “That is another strong contributing factor that allows us to pay $50 commissions on individual sales.”
For those new to affiliate marketing, or simply new to the Boost Affiliates program, tested ad creative and landing pages are offered in the affiliate resources section at http://boostaffiliates.com/members/. The product sells well in the U.S., UK, and Australia. The software also sells in Germany (the members section includes 3 landing pages in German), although there are few affiliates taking advantage of the German market at this point.
