Acceleration Partners worked closely with Blenders’ marketing staff to identify partners whose business models aligned with the needs of a direct-to-consumer brand. Each partnership was structured in a manner that facilitated an incremental driving of new consumers.
In order to optimise the affiliate programme, Acceleration Partners leveraged several different partner types. This included loyalty/cashback, voucher, and content affiliates. Additionally, Acceleration Partners incorporated a highly competitive commission structure into the affiliate programme to draw in top prospects.
Acceleration Partners also addressed one of Blenders leadership’s key concerns, which was contribution hijacking. Acceleration Partners safeguarded the programme against this issue by implementing a unique tracking protocol within the affiliate network. This tactic ensured that content partners received sales credit instead of the voucher partner when both were involved in the transaction.
Cumulatively, Acceleration Partners’ efforts allowed Blenders to deploy a highly effective affiliate programme, which has now outpaced expectations for two consecutive years.
