Tracking, Reporting, and Payment Options

Tracking Features and Unique Capabilities  

We offer several tracking options:

• Server-to-Server (Recommended): Establishes a direct connection between Partnerize and the advertiser. Because click and conversion data are stored with the advertiser, S2S is unaffected by changes in browser cookie policies like Safari ITP.
• First-Party Cookies: Secure, cookie-based tracking.
• Container Tag: Installed directly on your website or through an existing tag manager. Reduces the amount of manual integration work related to changing browser functionality and data policies, as well as Google Parallel Tracking.
• Batch-Based Tracking: For advertisers with special needs or security requirements.

In addition, we offer Partnerize AllTrack, a suite of mobile tracking methodologies to ensure that we can capture conversions that take place on any connected device, including on the mobile web and in mobile apps. There are three tracking options with All-Track:
• Partnerize SDK: Uses a lightweight and secure SDK to track conversions in your app at no additional charge.
• Server-to-Server: Uses a direct connection between advertiser and Partnerize to ensure every event and conversion are captured.
• Third-Party Mobile Tracking Integrations: Pre-built integrations with app attribution companies including Appsflyer, Adjust, Branch, Kochava, and Oplytic.

Specific needs will be assessed during the sales and onboarding processes. For more information, please see https://info.partnerize.com/recruitment_services

Program / Partner Management Services Available to Advertisers

Partnerize provides marketers with a range of service options. For more information, please see https://info.partnerize.com/Managed_Services

Spend Threshold and Deliverables for Each Service Level 

Partnerize clients can choose from a range of service options, from full service to a consultative approach that caters to their unique needs, regardless of where they fall on the affiliate learning curve. We also offer the category's only in-housing practice, designed to help marketers cultivate channel expertise before they take program management in-house. Specific needs will be evaluated during the sales and onboarding processes and the appropriate service model will be mapped to defined advertiser needs.

Process for Monitoring and Preventing Fraud 

Partnerize offers comprehensive fraud detection and prevention as well as "always on" compliance monitoring. Key features include:
• Machine-learning-based detection of potential partner fraud.
• Dedicated suite in the platform for potential fraud incidents, review, and resolution.
• Automated fraud alerts system that monitors critical data and notifies users if anomalies warrant investigation for possible fraud. Notifications by email, Slack or in Fraud Manager Interface when suspicious activity warrants further investigation.
• Monitoring of partner and order activity that can indicate attribution fraud, click fraud and reselling fraud.
• Ability to whitelist partners deemed safe at the advertiser level.
• Automatic adjustment for seasonal variation/performance spikes like Black Friday.
• Incident resolution through csv download, rejecting conversion(s) or publisher, whitelist partner or incident deletion/dismissal.
• Compliance monitoring enables identification and management of partners' search, code, content and domain infractions, and rehabilitation of partner violators.

Process for Vetting Partners and Monitoring Partner Compliance 

Partners that sign up for Partnerize are reviewed through a comprehensive verification process involving both automated vetting and manual human review. Once accepted onto Partnerize, partners are also monitored for problematic content and behavior using BrandVerity solutions.

With Partnerize's acquisition of BrandVerity, the leading provider of search monitoring and web compliance offerings for the partnerships and search industries, advertisers can use BrandVerity data to monitor programs and partners for brand protection and compliance risks.

• BrandVerity's Paid Search Monitoring tools expose bad actors bidding on branded terms, their competing ad copy, landing pages, and much more. Advanced link analysis automatically flags fraudulent activity. Built-in tools make it easy to follow up with partners and track mitigation efforts.

• BrandVerity's Web Compliance tools enable brands to monitor the web for accuracy and compliance with legal and financial regulations. The tools simplify monitoring of hundreds or thousands of web pages and offer simple tools to flag problems for partners and track mitigation over time.

 

Partner Network

Active Partners as of Fall 2020

Diverse programs that move beyond coupon and cash back dependency are core to enabling you to fully realize the opportunity in the category. With that objective in mind, Partnerize technology was built to enable brands to find and recruit right-fit partners from a diverse supply database, including over 250k influencers, by leveraging your first party data to curate a high performing program. In addition to identifying and activating relevant partners via our platform, Partnerize enables marketers to easily import partners from their legacy provider with an efficient onboarding process. Clients leveraging the Parternize solution typically have an average of 47 revenue-active partners in any given month.

Unique Partner Relationships

Unique partner relationships come in several forms:

Unique Integrated Partners: Partnerize has developed direct integrations with partners to alleviate the technical integration process on behalf of advertisers. These relationships include Daasity, RevLifter and Cybba, and are unavailable through other affiliate or partner management platforms.

Unique-to-an-Advertiser Relationships: Partnerize offers advertisers the option of operating a private network in which some or all of their partners are never made public to other advertisers or partners. We currently power thousands of such relationships for advertisers in retail, travel, finance, subscriptions and telecom. Many of these relationships are the largest partners by volume for our advertisers.

Unique-to-an-Advertiser Influencer Relationships: We work with a number of our advertisers to connect brand employees and ambassadors for powerful performance marketing campaigns. These individuals are available only to the advertiser that onboards them originally.

Unique Brand Partner Relationships: We work exclusively with dozens of leading brands to power brand-to-brand alliances. Partnerize pioneered these sorts of performance partnerships, and currently supports exclusive relationships and alliances for leading finance, retail, travel and subscriptions businesses.

Unique Content Partner Relationships: Partnerize has led the way in connecting leading tier-one content providers to the performance marketing industry. While other tech providers and networks connect some of them, Partnerize advertisers often have deeper integrations with such providers, owing to the quality of advertisers and campaigns we bring to the content publishers.

Process for Recruiting and Paying Influencers and Other Long Tail Partners 

Partnerize clients can work with influencers directly through our platform, or through our third-party integrations with leading influencer networks and communities like Zine and Sideqik. Advertisers that work directly with influencers typically have simplified sign-up processes and incentives for such partnerships.

To improve our ability to serve these influencers, who tend to be more mobile-centric and less technologically focused, we offer a variety of tools in our platform to ease platform and campaign sign-up. We have also developed exclusive tools like a Chrome extension that enables influencers to connect to specific items via deep links, without logging into the platform.

Additionally, compensation is set at the program level, meaning that marketers can customize both their program's partner makeup and reward structures, comprised of any combination of flat or variable commission structures and incentives.

 

Pricing and Positioning

Pricing Options Available to Advertisers 

Flat Fee (Most Common, SaaS-based. Monthly or Yearly)
Percent of Revenue
Percent of Commission

Pricing models vary based on the unique needs of the brand. Most clients choose a SaaS-based pricing model that offers flat-rate pricing over a given period for a given band of activity. Our pricing is based on gross booking value instead of a percentage of commission costs to better align our revenue to client profitability. This pricing gives brands cost certainty, margin protection, and assurance that Partnerize growth is perfectly aligned to their own. We also offer variable, percentage-based pricing for those clients that prefer it.

Unique Selling Proposition

Technology + Service
Partnerize is building a fundamentally better approach to partner management than what is offered by legacy affiliate networks or tech-only SaaS platforms. Networks deliver outsourced program management services, but lack the technology and tools to deliver maximum profitable growth through data-driven marketing. By contrast, SaaS-based tech-only platforms offer access to technology but don't offer expert service to help brands get maximum benefit from the tech.

Partnerize sits uniquely at the intersection of technology and service, delivering both the insights and precision of an advanced tech platform to manage all your partnerships combined with a configurable service model that enables agencies and advertisers to choose a level of partnership program support that meets their specific needs.

The Partnerize technology platform is unlike legacy network providers, providing an easy-to-use toolset that enables automation and scale. Our platform offers modularized components that support the entire partner marketing lifecycle in a single destination with no need for a la carte add-ons. The Partnerize platform delivers tools and technology to identify, recruit and activate right-fit partners, appropriately award and compensate partners, automate workflows, deliver data views and insights to optimize performance, and a complete suite of brand safety and compliance capabilities to reduce fraud, protect your brand, and maximize return on media investment.
