▲ ▼ Single referral system for all services
Affiliate marketing is the best alternative to those who don't want to encroach upon the privacy of their readers with ads which uses tracking cookies. When used in a content without conflict of interest it can add value to both the readers and the publisher.
But the current referral system is messy with,
- Each product or service having tied up with a different agency for providing referral links or having their own.
- Arbitrary approval criteria for new signups.
- Obscure payment policies etc.
- Publishers gaming the referral system where only a single eCommerce company is benefited.
There's need-gap in affiliate marketing to cut down the middlemen and to connect the advertisers with publisher directly with a single universal referral system.
