Affiliates Earn Up to 43 Percent Higher Earnings with iStockphoto’s Exclusive LinkConnector Campaign

iStockphoto Adds Fuel to Its Growing Affiliate Marketing Campaign, Exclusively on the LinkConnector Network, with Higher Commissions and a Fully Loaded Product Feed.

CARY, NC — August 11, 2011iStockphoto the Internet’s original and prevailing source for user-generated images, media and design elements, and an exclusive merchant in its first year with the LinkConnector Affiliate Marketing Network, has boosted its commission payout for affiliates and implemented a product feed available to select affiliates to escalate the success the merchant has had in the network. iStockphoto has earned a well-trusted brand that is backed by more than ten years of experience in the stock imagery industry.

As a primary catalyst for aggressive growth of its affiliate marketing program, iStockphoto has implemented an across-the-board commission rate increase. Affiliates sending repeat business will now earn nearly 43 percent more, or 10 percent of sales per repeat customer order, up from 7 percent. Affiliates sending new business will now earn 20 percent of sales per new customer order, a more than 33 percent increase in commission. iStockphoto has also established a large product feed featuring millions of images and design elements. This feed is available to select affiliates through the Affiliate Manager interface, FTP or an API call.

“We recognize that the success of the iStockphoto campaign is heavily dependent on the success of its affiliate partners. We wanted to reach out to our current and prospective affiliates in a clear, meaningful way to better enable and motivate them,” said Jennifer King, the dedicated LinkConnector Account Manager for the iStockphoto program. “Beyond our regular coupons/promotions and devoted account management services, we wanted to reach affiliates where we were certain it would have the greatest impact, the wallet.”

iStockphoto has a solid track record of converting traffic, as evidenced by the higher than average earnings per click (EPC). The merchant also maintains a loyal following—due in part to its well-recognized brand. These factors create a competitive advantage for affiliates promoting iStockphoto through LinkConnector. iStockphoto, along with Getty Images and Thinkstock, will be attending the upcoming Affiliate Summit East Conference from August 21 – 23, 2011, in New York City.
