We surveyed more than eighteen-hundred affiliates on their methods, preferences, and strategies for the 2014 Affiliate Summit AffStat Report, and one of the questions we asked was “What is your preferred method for finding out information from an affiliate manager?”.
Up until now, the options we were giving for survey respondents to choose were the following:
- Blog or company website
- Email from an affiliate network
- Mass email from the affiliate manager
But MGECOM has changed that with a mobile app for affiliates from the OPM. It’s too late to incorporate this option in our 2015 survey, but we’ll have to get that included for 2016.
The MGECOM app makes all of their client coupons, promos, and full program details available to affiliates.
I think this is a really good move, because so many affiliates are making a hard shift to mobile, and not necessarily keeping a computer by their side.
Plus, they won’t have to compete with all of the other distractions coming in email, which is currently the runaway preference for affiliates to receive information from affiliate networks and affiliate managers.
