Hello all… Today’s focus is one I think you’ll really enjoy. A lot of affiliates come to me looking for recommendations on “Hidden Gems” on our network – programs that they should definitely participate in but might not know of… I am always happy to find them a suitable fit – so today I decided to tell everyone about a program that I consider to be top notch and still very much young and growing on the ShareASale network.
LightingbyGregory.com is the online retail store for Lighting by Gregory, one of the largest contemporary and traditional lighting and ceiling fan distributors in America. They launched their affiliate program through ShareASale beginning in November of 2005 – and the program has been growing ever since but there are still dozens of niches and ways to promote this merchant that have yet to be explored….
As you can see by the above graph and table – the EPC on this program is over $55 and has been very steady for the past 30 days or so (and beyond)….
Average order size is also over $300 which means that each sale generated for an affiliate is earning that affiliate over $20.
In my opinion, part of the reason for this is due to the quality of the shopping experience on the site itself… if we take a look at the site we can see the strong brand name recognition that they are showing the consumer – as well as the well designed menu structure that makes it really easy for the consumer to find what they are looking for.
Recently, there is also a connection with an offline media event (Extreme Makeover: Home Edition) which has no doubt increased consumer interest in the website as well… LightingByGregory.com provides a list of products that have been featured on that show…
Prior to writing this blog I also took a look through their datafeed to see how things are structured as I know that datafeed affiliates need certain things in order to be able to promote a merchants successfully. From what I can see, the datafeed looks really nice; There is a good category structre which provides the “Brand” name of the product as well as the “Category” that that product fits under.
Take a look below here is a sample from the “Make-A-Page” tool on ShareASale…
So – there you have it. A hidden gem for everyone. There is lots of room for growth in this program in my opinion, so I hope you will take a look and see if there is a fit for you. I’ve developed a little “incentive” for you as well on this particular program… If you send me an email: Brian @ ShareASale.com is my email address… I will put you on my list for this incentive contest. For the first 5 affiliates who sign up (or is already a member) and can generate 10 product sales by the end of the month of August, I will personally add a bonus of $500 to your account.
So – 10 sales gets you approximately $200 in commissions based on averages… plus a $500 bonus. That’s not bad, eh? I’ve got a couple of rules for you – so you will need to email me specifically for inclusion in this little contest…
