2016: We Came, We Saw, We Conquered

Author : John Bleecker

Are you partnering with the right affiliates?  Are you paying your publishers too much?  Are they working against your interests?  Do you know what this is costing your business?  Schaaf-PartnerCentric knows the answers.  By preventing commission payouts that would have only rewarded bad publishers for their behavior, our clients saved critical marketing dollars by being proactive and interdicting before problems could arise.

As long as there is a “system” in place, there will be people trying to game it.  The world of affiliate marketing is no exception.  Last year we added more than 500 new websites and publisher accounts to our database of non-compliant affiliates.  We intervened in more than 1000 instances of trademark violations, and identified nearly 100 publisher accounts driving fraudulent transactions.   It is not enough merely having a Terms of Service agreement.  If you are not enforcing those terms, then you are likely losing money.

There are many ways an unguarded affiliate program can be exploited, from trademark infringement to unauthorized promo code use to submitting fake leads in a referral program, to name just a few.  Non-compliant publishers will compete against you in your SEM campaigns, regardless of your program terms.  These publishers can ad insult to injury, too.  After they have increased the cost of your ad-spend, they then expect to be paid a commission for traffic they “drove” to your site–only after they cut in front of you in line!  If you are paying publishers for referrals, be sure that someone will try to send you bogus leads in order to reap that hefty payday.

Publishers can also cheat other publishers.  This, too, will cost you in lost revenue-generating opportunities.  Most publishers will abide by the rules.  Don’t let a bad publisher damage a beneficial relationship by increasing your partners’ PPC costs or even stealing their commissions outright.  If your publisher partners do not think you are looking out for their well-being, they will find other advertisers to promote.  And, if you remove a non-compliant publisher from your program, the work doesn’t stop there.  Once a publisher has taken a ride on the gravy train, they will endeavor to climb back on.

Non-compliant publishers are always looking for new ways to beat old safeguards.  You must be able to adapt to new and emerging hazards.  Schaaf-PartnerCentric has a unique advantage in the affiliate world, in that we see across 16 different platforms and a wide-variety of advertiser verticals.  We are able to better develop and hone industry best practices, and know how to tweak them for different scenarios.  This vantage point allows us to counteract the constantly evolving tactics employed by unscrupulous publishers.  We are constantly revising and improving our methods to prevent the next threat.  Our hands-on monitoring of your program will minimize the risk posed by these bad actors.  Our mission is not just to be reactive, but proactive as well.

There is a certain type of publisher that is working full-time to cheat you.  Are you working full-time to stop them?

Contact us today to find out if your company is paying too much for your affiliate program.

2016_blog_10things

Schaaf-PartnerCentric is celebrating 10 years in business and we have so much to be thankful for! Here are just a few of the many blessings we give thanks for this holiday season!

1. Our Team- 

“I am thankful to you all that choose to work for SPC every day- I know each and every one of you has options and I do not take for granted that it’s a voluntary decision on your part every day to get up and recommit to excellent work and your team here at SPC. THANK YOU!”

– Stephanie Harris, CEO of Schaaf-PartnerCentric

“Our employees are truly some of the best in the industry. They go above and beyond every day and are a dream team to work with!” – Julie Àvila, VP of Client Services

“I am so thankful for our amazing team and this wonderful company. When I tell my friends about the perks I have, they are always jealous!” – Alexis Simek, Project Manager of Technology

 2. Our Clients! – Where would we be without our amazing and loyal clients?! We are especially thankful for those of you who’ve been with us from the start!

“I’m grateful for clients that view us as an extension of their team, not merely a service provider.” –Tom Rathbone, Head of Technology

“I’m thankful for our clients who trust us to grow their programs and hit their KPI’s.”

– Julie Stepkowski, Sr. Affiliate Program Manager

3. Our Partners, big and small!- We are grateful for our wonderful affiliate and technology partners who have joined with us in meeting countless client goals with quality products, technology and services.  Affiliate marketing truly is a relationship business and we couldn’t do what we do best without them!

4. Work/Life Flexibility- 

“I am thankful for being able to drop my little girls off at school in the morning since home is my office.” – Erinn Groh, Affiliate Program Manager

“I am thankful for the flexibility I have working for SPC. I can meet my family in South Korea while working!” – Gayoung Lee, Affiliate Marketing Analyst

5. Our Values-

“I am so thankful not only to work for a thriving company with brilliant individuals, but most of all that I work for a company to be PROUD of and who is proud of me.  Schaaf-PartnerCentric values and utilizes my gifts both personally and professionally. It is such a blessing to work for leaders who care for and genuinely appreciate their team members.”

– Dana Pezzin, Marketing Coordinator

6. A Thriving Industry- 

“I am thankful for the ever-changing and exciting industry we work in and the phenomenal network agency reps we get to partner with to help our clients meet their goals every day.”

– Dan Fink, Sr. Affiliate Program Manager

7. The Internet- The Internet has made it possible for even the smallest companies to sell their products and services around the world and to work with employees in remote locations like SPC.  And the rise of social media allows for a direct line to customers and clients which can create very targeted opportunities. Without the internet we wouldn’t thrive as a company and you wouldn’t be reading this post!

8. Mobile growth- Mobile growth has been outpacing other advertising sectors and is expected to remain on this trajectory because of the explosive growth of mobile devices. We are grateful for the added growth opportunities and marketing strategies this can translate to for our clients (like pay per call, geo targeting, online to offline, etc).

9. Team Bonding at DisneyWorld- SPC treated the team and their beloved families to an unforgettable trip to DisneyWorld this past September and it was an unbelievable opportunity to spend time together and bond with each other and our loved ones!

10. Passion- 10 years ago two brothers driven by passion and a dream, Brook & Forrest Schaaf, started Schaaf-PartnerCentric. Flash forward 10 years and their dream is now a reality driven by a dream team of very passionate employees!

“I am thankful for the most amazing team in the industry.”

– Forrest Schaaf, Partner & Co-Founder

Happy Thanksgiving!
