Affiliate marketing is a performance-orientated strategy that’s been critical for businesses worldwide, including industry leaders such as Amazon. At Artefact, we’ve been part of similar success stories.
For instance, our partnership with Crucial, a global brand of Micron Technology has reaped significant benefits. Crucial’s digital marketing team stated that “Artefact teams have constantly been innovative, proposing new partnerships and boosting the performances of our affiliate channel.” This underscores the importance of not just collaboration but also leveraging data and advanced technology for targeted and profitable partnerships.
The breadth of affiliate marketing: Beyond the standard
Affiliate marketing isn’t a one-size-fits-all strategy. Its adaptability is its strength and at Artefact, we help our partners harness this to their advantage.
Renowned online retailer, Funky Pigeon, has witnessed consistent growth through our partnership. Their CRM Manager elaborates that “Artefact’s expertise and attention to detail played a crucial role in maintaining our steady growth in the channel”. This indicates the potential of data in refining tactics and optimising results, leading to innovation within affiliate marketing.
Cost-efficient strategies global impact
In the aviation industry, Artefact has proven its expertise with a successful and cost-efficient international affiliate program for the Lufthansa Group. This strategic plan, catered to specific country conditions and network strategies, led to an increase in performance and long-term partnerships with affiliates.
Centralised management and an open book policy enabled a free exchange of knowledge across campaigns and airlines, further improving the efficiency of their operations. The result was a 10+ years of client trust, year on year growth of affiliate programs, and an overall increase in net value and passengers.
The future of affiliate marketing
As an industry leader, we foresee an evolving terrain in affiliate marketing, filled with emerging trends and technologies. We adapt, innovate, and integrate these advancements to anticipate consumer behaviour, personalise offers and enhance conversion rates.
Our work with Dickies, a globally recognized workwear brand, underscores this. Through our collaboration, Dickies improved their efficiency by optimising an attribution model that enhanced their channel performance evaluation and budget management.
