Using ShareASale’s tagging feature is perfect for keeping your affiliates organized and overall, making your life easier! We cannot talk enough about the importance of using tags.
As affiliates join your program, it is important to tag them based on where you met, performance, promotional methods or violations. Give them one tag or several – it is completely up to you! Take a look at some examples of tags to get you started.
Think of it like categorizing your Affiliates. Wouldn’t it be easier to view data of a certain targeted clump of Affiliates versus having to sort through ALL of your Affiliates? Or sending out a newsletter to all of your Affiliates under a tag “Top Performers”? Or how about giving an exclusive offer or bonus to a small handful of your affiliates? Now you can! Tag them! You will thank yourself later!
Once you have segmented your Affiliates, there are numerous ways to use target those specific Affiliates using some of your favorite ShareASale tools.
