Paula Deen’s Popular Online Cooking Store Launches Exclusively in the LinkConnector Network

The New Paula Deen Store Program, Operated by Cooking.com and Found Exclusively on the LinkConnector Affiliate Marketing Network, Has Launched Just in Time for Sales to Sizzle During the Outdoor Cooking Season

CARY, NC — June 2, 2011 — Paula Deen, who cooks for world leaders, is a best-selling author and is concurrently on four shows running on the Food Network, has added to her repertoire an exclusive merchant program in the LinkConnector Affiliate Marketing Network (http://www.linkconnector.com/) to promote sales for her cookware and bakeware site, the PaulaDeenStore.com. The Paula Deen Store Campaign provides affiliate partners with coupons, a product feed and a competitive payout, and has strategically launched at the start of the summer season, the time of peak activity for the e-Retailer. This campaign marks the second well-known name in the cooking industry that Cooking.com has brought into the LinkConnector Network this year, giving affiliates another popular and proven brand to earn with.

One key feature of the Paula Deen Store Campaign is the availability of coupons and promotions. Frequently, the store will feature 50% off or offer a bonus coffee with a customer order. Regular merchant promotions enable stronger conversions and provide leverage for affiliates to increase earnings with. Obtaining Paula Deen Store’s promotional information is also simple with LinkConnector Affiliates’ ability to pull the Coupon/Promo Feed via their Affiliate Manager interface, FTP, or an API call. The Paula Deen Store Campaign has a regularly updated product feed featuring 7,000 cooking-related products. Other attractive campaign aspects include an easy-to-shop website and knowledgeable staff ready to close sales. The Paula Deen Store offers a competitive payout of 7% per sale and has an average order size of $57.

“We’re excited to bring over the Paula Deen Store, our second Cooking.com brand to enter the LinkConnector Network,” said Ruben Leyva of Cooking.com, the established online retailer operating in partnership with Paula Deen. “Now is a great time for affiliates to earn with our program as the start of summertime marks the beginning of our sales spike. Grilling out, yard parities, and several festive holidays, such as the Fourth of July, ensure high sales volume and strong customer conversions over the next several months.”

The story behind the Paula Deen brand is a unique one, forged from the quintessential American Dream. After growing up in Georgia in her grandmother’s kitchen, Paula was met with several tragedies by her early twenties, including the loss of both her parents and a debilitating disease. She persevered through these early years of depression, kept cooking, and soon opened an in-home catering business. This business sprouted into a restaurant, and today, Paula has multiple television shows, countless cookbooks, a magazine, an ever-expanding product line, and several Southern-style restaurants. With her well-built brand and loyal following, LinkConnector Affiliates should be able to readily engage and convert their traffic.
