1. Improved Newsletter Tools
The ShareASale Newsletter Editor was revamped, with one important feature added. Now, along with choosing a Plain Text, or HTML campaign – you can choose to send a Split Campaign. This allows you to send two similar messages, possibly with different subject lines or slightly different text, and get a feel for how those two campaigns perform with regards to the number of Affiliates who open the emails.
2. PPC Keyword Monitoring Tool
As discussed today in our blog series “How to Start an Affiliate Program“, compliance with your Program Terms is critical to the long term success of any Affiliate Program. One of the key elements of that is monitoring compliance among your PPC Affiliates who bid on terms, on your behalf, in the major search engines.
ShareASale’s basic PPC Monitoring Tool will allow you to stay on top of compliance, and report violations directly to ShareASale, should they occur. This service is included with every ShareASale Merchant account. For Merchants with more significant needs in this area, we highly recommend BrandVerity.com and their entire suite of compliance tools.
3. Mobile Tracking and Online–>Offline Coupon Tracking
Two areas where Affiliates are expanding are 1. Mobile, and 2. In-store Coupons. Both can be great additions to your Affiliate Channel – and are supported by ShareASale technology.
