We manage and scale affiliate programmes globally, connecting ecommerce brands to aligned publishers and content creators to drive brand awareness, traffic and revenue.
The affiliate and online partnerships channel is growing rapidly, with the industry now worth $12B. More ecommerce brands are seeing the opportunity within the channel, with affiliates now driving up to 15% of overall digital revenue for brands.
Our team has close relationships with industry leading networks and publishers globally, tailoring affiliate strategy to meet brands objectives and understands how to utilise different partner types to achieve set KPIs.
We push the boundaries of affiliate marketing, bringing fresh and innovative ideas to ensure our clients’ programmes are constantly evolving. Taking a creative, holistic and brand-led approach, we tailor affiliate strategy to clients digital marketing objectives, with the brand always at the forefront.
Our four pillars of affiliate management include:
Grow - Constant recruitment, opportunity sourcing, campaign and budget management
Nurture - Relationship building and communication
Maintain - Compliance, creative and campaign updates, validations and feed health
Report - Cloud reporting, campaign analysis and keeping up to date with industry news
Typically, an affiliate marketing campaign will begin with the affiliate promoting a brand on-site, encouraging a customer to click and convert, the traffic and conversion is tracked through affiliate networks and then the publisher earns commission on the sale.
We always take a considered approach to affiliate marketing. We do not focus our strategies around incentives, particularly voucher and cashback. Although these partner types are an integral part of affiliate programmes, we would recommend premium and luxury brands to work with a small pool of incentive partners and look at the wider opportunities the channel has to offer, such as shopping, loyalty, content, influencers and new emerging partnerships such as brand to brand.
We understand how premium brands differentiate themselves online and how to use third parties to drive revenue, whilst also protecting brand prestige. We only work with affiliate partners that align with the brands we work with and who will represent the brand well.

Each content creator and affiliate site will use varying pricing models, but we can work with you and the affiliate to find the most efficient option for your objectives and demonstrate the best value for your investment. Pricing models include:
CPA (commission) - This is often a percentage of sales, with the programme rate determined by the advertiser. This means you can remain competitive and provide capacity to increase your investment with specific publishers.
Tenancy - These are often fixed fees for tenancy placements on newsletters, homepages, content and more. Tenancies are determined by the affiliates, and are dependent of reach and quality.
CPC (cost per click) - Using a CPC model is useful for paying affiliates that are considered upper funnel for traffic (rather than conversions). This is often utilised by content publishers and some shopping portals.
Payment on Influence - This is often a mix of % of sales and fixed fees. This is where you pay out on sales that were part of the user journey but weren’t last click. Common publisher types for this model are influencers and content.
