The team at AvantLink is thrilled to announce our reimagined affiliate marketing platform, Arches, with a release as soon as next week.

We have recently been rolling out components of Arches, like the updated performance & AvantMetrics reports, the affiliate ad tools page, and the login pages. But the release next week will be our biggest reveal to date as we roll out the revamped affiliate dashboard and share the new features with our network partners.
“We’re excited to keep rolling the Arches updates out to our partners and see how they positively affect their performance marketing efforts,” said Scott Kalbach, CEO of AvantLink.

We’ve been working on the 2.0 version of AvantLink’s platform for about two years.  As we progressed through the 2.0 redesign, it became clear that this was more than a feature redesign; it was an evolution of identity and functionality, and it needed a brand.

The intent of our platform has always been to connect merchants and affiliates, and this new platform enhances those capabilities. The name “Arches” came to mind as we thought about the arch from point to point, connecting merchants and affiliates. And, being a Utah company with Delicate Arch on our license place, the name becomes an obvious choice.

Scott Kalbach also said, “Arches brings the next generation of data architecture, tracking, UI/UX and performance marketing technology to the AvantLink platform.” When all the features of the new platform are released, you will notice many improvements:

Increased Availability to Data

  • Improved Data Visualization
  • Customized Reporting (use custom parameters for reports that matter to you)
  • AI (predictive modeling, smart ads based on user behaviors)

Advanced Tracking

  • Cross-Device
  • More Attribution Roles for AvantMetrics
  • Additional Insight into the Customer’s Path to Purchase
  • Advanced Commission Rules
  • Ability to Commission on Actions (newsletter sign-ups, app downloads, etc.)

Mobile Responsive Front-end

Dynamic API Foundation (Arches front end is built on an API)

  • Allowing Third Parties to Build Tools and Plugins for Platform
  • Most Functions in Platform can be done by an API call

We will continue to work diligently rolling out additions to the Arches platform regularly. As stated, the affiliate dashboard has an anticipated release date middle of next week. After the affiliate dashboard, we will be working on releasing the merchant and agency dashboards.

If you are currently a network partner and have immediate questions, feel free to reach out to the Account Management team HERE. If you’re not yet on the platform and would like more details, connect with our Business Development Team HERE.

AvantLink is a privately-owned affiliate network built on a quality-over-quantity approach and ethical business practices. From the start, AvantLink has focused on developing functionality & technology to solve common pain-points experienced by program managers in the industry. Our customers and clients are our, and we continuously raise the bar on customer service.

Our latest software update is now live and can be found under the “Reports” tab of your admin page. The AvantMetrics report tab gives merchants access to AvantMetrics reporting with similar function to our Performance Reports. Starting April 1st, this will be the only place this reporting is available.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with AvantMetrics, here’s what you need to know:

We introduced the AvantMetrics technology seven years ago as our team recognized an increasing need for more thorough & dynamic approach to affiliate marketing. AvantMetrics proved its capabilities in 2018 when merchants with the site-wide pixel were exempt from needing to make any changes as ITP 2.0 debuted. AvantMetrics sets both a first-party and third-party cookie, so our affiliate sales continued to track properly.

However, that’s just one feature of AvantMetrics. Since AvantMetrics is site-wide, your program can also utilize our holistic marketing insights, behavioral analysis, commission attribution, deduplication, and third-party pixel integration.

Holistic Marketing Insights:

With our holistic marketing insights, you can track every marketing channel involved in the click-stream leading up to a sale. This is helpful in recognizing the value of each touch-point and revealing how dynamic a customer’s shopping journey can be today.

Behavioral Analysis:

Furthermore, you can analyze where affiliate clicks are occurring using AvantLink’s three behavioral referral groups: introducer, influencer and check out influencer. An introducer is an affiliate who provides an inbound click to a merchant’s site before the customer has visited the site in the current sales cycle. An influencer click is one that occurs after the initial visit to the merchant site, but before the checkout process is initiated. Finally, a checkout influencer click is an inbound referral to a merchant site that occurs after the customer has entered the checkout phase. You can use this information to decide which affiliates you want in your program or to incentivize them to shift the nature of referrals to your site.

Commission Attribution:

To take the behavioral analysis (outlined above) one step further, you can implement our commission attribution. Commission attribution allows you to split your base commission among our three affiliate classifications: introducer, influencer and checkout influencer. This is a departure from the traditional last-click-wins affiliate payout structure. Using this feature, you can reward high-value affiliates for the critical role they play in referrals to your company earlier in the conversion funnel.

Deduplication:

An additional feature available with AvantMetrics is most appealing for programs working with more than one affiliate network. By using our deduplication technology, you only pay a commission to the affiliate who made the final referral prior to sale.

Pixel Integration:

AvantLink has a number of third-party affiliates who require an additional integration before merchants can start working with them. Some examples are search partners, on-site conversion optimization, and cart abandonment solutions. These affiliates still earn their commissions on a performance basis (no flat fee) but do require minor integration. Their pixels are added into our larger AvantMetrics container so you won’t need additional technical integration on your site.

Overall, AvantMetrics offers a more dynamic and customizable approach to affiliate marketing tracking & reporting. It can be customized to support your brand’s unique goals & initiatives. Furthermore, we designed AvantMetrics so that future updates & improvements will roll-out seamlessly without clients having to change their tracking code. If you want to learn more, please contact our sales team!

We disrupted the conference scene when we introduced AvantExpo 6 years ago and now we’re doing it again!

Introducing: AvantLink-Up

AvantLink-Up is a nimble approach to the traditional conference, in which we bring the networking event to a region near you! By taking the AvantExpo experience on the road we aim to:

    1. Have our network partners and prospects learn more about AvantLink and our incredible team.
    2. Facilitate new opportunities for merchants and publishers.
    3. Build better relationships between AvantLink network partners by spending time together doing something fun.

    AvantLink CEO, Scott Kalbach, says, “AvantExpo has been a huge success and the goal with AvantLink-Up is to take all of the elements that people loved about Expo and bring those to new regional events that open up the experience to more of our clients, publishers and prospects.” He also mentioned, AvantExpo could return someday, but for now AvantLink is excited about developing Link-Up.

    We’re kicking this off with an event in our hometown of Park City, UT and we will be releasing more details soon. We’re planning for two additional events in 2019 as well. Stay tuned for locations and dates!

    Additionally, we’re announcing the AvantLink Network Awards will be separate from the conference agenda. Criteria for 2019 awards will be published on our website in coming weeks and winners will be announced in early 2020.

    Can’t wait to see you on the road!
