Merchant Timesaver: Ask and you shall receive….Tags!
|Inspired by feedback we received, ShareASale has launched some new features to the Affiliate List page in the Merchant Interface (Affiliates >Your Affiliate List) that are sure to make affiliate program management a little easier!|
|The first, is the ability to batch update an affiliate’s status and / or group assignment in a singular page session. So for example, if a merchant is reviewing pending applications, they could assign affiliates to different status and groups as needed then save the page all at once. This eliminates the need to do all the approvals in one session, the declines in another, and the group assignments separately.|
|Second, merchants can now assign their affiliates with tags which will help to organize the affiliate list. Tags differ from the Affiliate Group feature in that merchants can assign multiple tags to any one affiliate and tags are for merchant reference only and are not reflected in the affiliate interface.|
|When looking at the Affiliate List page, merchants will notice the ability to add tags is listed under each affiliate listing. You can create a new tag with the new tag editor. Provide a new tag name and optional description as well as optional color for easy visual organization.|
|Once tags are created, the Tag Manager can be launched to quickly view how many and which affiliates have been assigned each tag. There is also an option to download a list of affiliates provided with a specific tag or the list can be emailed to the merchant address on file.In the coming weeks a “filter by tag” feature will be added to many of the reporting options. So merchants will be able to view data for affiliates within a specific tag.Enjoy!|
Hi! I'm Sarah, the Director of Client Services for ShareASale.com. I came to ShareASale in 2005 and am responsible for providing strategic guidance and educational resources to Merchants & Affiliates that can be used to grow their accounts. My favorite thing in the world, aside from affiliate marketing of course, is traveling. Random fact: my first concert ever was Neil Diamond when I was 4. As a result, I know an alarmingly large number of Neil Diamond songs. Don’t be a hater.
