As a commerce-focused publisher, having accurate, timely performance data is critical to optimizing your strategy — and maximizing affiliate revenue. In order to quickly pivot and make split-second decisions about what is and isn’t working, deliver what readers want, and see all your revenue opportunities in one stream, you need a way to easily access data and analytics in real time.
With the right data, you can answer questions like:
- Which products are selling best?
- Which brands are resonating with my audience?
- Which page placements are most effective?
- How many sales has my affiliate program delivered in the past week/month?
- How much affiliate revenue have I earned in this week/month?
- Which affiliate links are driving the most revenue?
- Have my audience’s preferences changed over time?
But mining mountains of data across multiple platforms to nimbly optimize is easier said than done for most affiliate commerce publishers. And lengthy delays to adapt often mean missing out on the best deals, because affiliate rates and marketing budgets can change quickly.
