How to Take Advantage of New Affiliate Publisher Models by Further Segmenting and Targeting your Audience

The affiliate channel typically focuses on discount shoppers and therefore operates at the bottom of the marketing funnel. As a result, its budget allocation is often smaller than other channels.

Lately, a broader set of publishers have monetized the channel through improved tracking and payment technology. Commerce content, reviews, influencers, and legacy publishers now drive significant revenue from affiliate partnerships with brands. The result is a larger, more diverse audience for affiliate marketers to access. Successfully accessing these audiences requires improved audience segmentation and messaging. If done correctly, this broader audience can be an introducer, a new customer aggregator or brand enhancer, allowing the channel to compete for more budget.
