The Challenge

Pura Vida, a hand-crafted bracelet and jewelry brand known for partnering with charities around the world, looked to Acceleration Partners (AP) to help them achieve 2018 revenue goals:

Double their 2017 revenue

Drive 8-10% of that through their affiliate marketing program

The AP team recognized an opportunity to take a multi-channel approach, harmonize Pura Vida’s online and offline marketing initiatives, recruit high-quality affiliate partners, and ensure brand-aligned partners represented Pura Vida in the best light possible.

Our Approach

Brand-Aligned Promotion

The AP team recommended that Pura Vida transition from working primarily with content partners to focus on top coupon, deal, and loyalty program partners, and optimize top affiliate partners to ensure brand-aligned promotion.

  • Completed weekly affiliate program partner reviews and removed coupon codes from unapproved partners
  • Carefully and consistently evaluated program conversion data (e.g., conversions, traffic, partner performance)
  • Strategically commissioned coupon, deal, and loyalty partners, providing exclusive-limited-time coupon codes to top partners
  • Negotiated homepage and other placements on top partners’ sites
  • Established clear communication with the Pura Vida team and their affiliate partners
Working with Acceleration Partners has allowed us to have a more strategic, data-driven and goal-oriented affiliate program.
