Shareasale is our preferred affiliate network of choice for many reasons. Offering a “Green” category for merchants, which is unique to an affiliate network, and indicative of the fact that Sharesale affiliates are in search of green merchants and products to promote, Shareasale boasts an impressive cadre of hundreds-of-thousands of affiliates, including eco/environmental bloggers, green product review sites, super affiliates, datafeed and LOHAS coupon affiliates. Joining the Shareasale network ensures your program will be poised to acquire highly targeted affiliates who are part and parcel of the non-greenwashing, eco movement.
Before your affiliate program is permitted to go live in Shareasale, all merchants must fulfill several key program features. Doing so ensures your program will be optimized for activating and engaging new affiliates who join your program. After each step has been completed and tracking is validated, your program will go live. These steps can be completed yourself, or for a one-time nominal fee, Green Affiliate Programs will oversee all aspects of readying your program for launch and ensure your program makes a memorable first impression with affiliates, incentivizing them to promote your products right from the start.
Affiliate Signup Page – This is the page through which affiliates will sign up and apply to your program in our network. Affiliates are often introduced to your program by finding this signup page; Hence, it is very important your affiliate program signup page showcases your website and program in a strong light, focusing on specific components that are crucial in recruiting top affiliates.
Auto-emails – You will have the option of auto-approving or manually approving affiliates who request to join your program. There are three instances when auto-emails are sent to affiliates: 1) In reply to an affiliate request to join your program 2) After said request has either been approved or declined. It is imperative that approval emails be strategically written to activate affiliates to begin promoting your program from the start.
