Affiliate Program Statistics
The Customer Acquisition Exchange is a powerful system for facilitating Customer Reciprocation between affiliate marketers, merchants, MLM members and online shoppers. Customer Reciprocation requires the purchase of goods or services at an online merchant. The number of sales a merchant site makes as well as the number of purchase intentions by customers can be compared to other merchants to determine a relative "demand" indicator. The number of affiliates promoting different merchant sites is a powerful indicator of "supply".
These figures are compared, rated and graphed in an unbiased manner to assist SpinningTornado community members make intelligent business decisions as to which merchant affiliate programs to promote. In fairness to online merchants, individual statistics are available by purchase only to ensure we do not manipulate what community members purchase or promote. They are based on the activities of community members only.
How to use statistics - 2 case studies
The following 2 case studies represent opposite ends of the spectrum in personality. These will help you identify strategies best suited to your personality and show you how to maximise the benefits derived through SpinningTornado.
Case Study #1 Conservative researcher:
Jill joins SpinningTornado as a relative newbie to internet marketing.
She's keen to develop her affiliate revenue but isn't sure which merchant sites to invest in.
Being smart and cautiously proactive, she decides to research some of the latest digital offerings available through the affiliate networks. She also investigates sites recommended through affiliate forum discussions.
In addition she looks at a couple of top ten lists via the affiliate directories.
She finally gets a shortlist on the table.
To support her findings she wishes to get an indicative measure of demand for the sites on her shortlist. She uses the statistics available in her portfolio to see the site's rank and movement. For example 38281
She narrows the list even further by adding a "Watched Site Ranking" for her new shortlist. This graphically shows the demand movement trend for the last thirty days. Also and equally valuable, she can see the supply statistics in detail showing how many competing affiliates promote the same site in relation to other sites.
Case Study #2 Seasoned professional:
Tony joins SpinningTornado as an experienced affiliate marketer with a large number of affiliate links in his portfolio.
He doesn't research in the same way that Jill does. He prefers to put more faith in recommendations from experienced internet marketers he has met along the way. In fact, he subscribes to many of their newsletters and ezines and is not quite as cautious as Jill when it comes to spending money online in his search for the best sites.
Tony is thrilled to discover SpinningTornado as he knows that any future online purchases guarantee commission through his existing affiliate links. Something he was never getting before!
He uses the "Watched Site Ranking" facility differently to Jill. He wants to know the demand trend for his existing sites over the last thirty days to see if they're worth maintaining or not. He believes in replacing stale sites with fresh new ones.
He reasons that unless an existing site is already income generating, he would be wise to concentrate his efforts on those sites showing a steady or increasing demand trend over time.
Tony also recognizes the advantage of prioritizing his affiliate links in his portfolio. He does this by enabling those he wishes to actively promote and disabling those he doesn't.
