With the announcement by Google in April that the Google Affiliate Network would be retired, many bloggers, sales aggregation sites, charity organizations, and others that rely on affiliate programs have been left to look for new ways to bring in revenue. While affiliate programs have lost some popularity with the rise of social media, referral programs, and other technologies, they still provide a substantial portion of sales.
To accommodate the demand from these affiliate users, many e-retailers are turning to in-house affiliate programs.ProbioticSmart.com, an e-commerce Web site dedicated to providing a variety of well-priced, health-conscious and earth-friendly products for people, pets and livestock, is one company that has started their own affiliate program to meet this need.
“Google Affiliate has been great for ProbioticSmart and our affiliates, but going forward more bloggers and organizations will join our program, which offers all the same features Google had, and more,” said Rob Zimmerman, Ecommerce Development Manager at ProbioticSmart.com. “We can create more exclusive sales and promotions for an individual blog or animal rescue organization with our in-house program, yet still offer all the convenience of affiliate performance tracking and easy payouts.”
Zimmerman said that the ProbioticSmart.com Affiliate Program offers the same 10% payout that Google Affiliate had, while giving a 20% commission rate for animal rescues and other charities. He also explained that they often work with bloggers to create giveaways and exclusive offers for their readers. “ProbioticSmart also promotes participating organizations through their social media outlets,” he said.
