LinkConnector Key Benefits

Since 2004, LinkConnector has been re-thinking the affiliate marketing space and constructing more inventive and effective solutions to today's online marketing obstacles. In fact, the company was built from the ground floor up for this purpose—to address the many limitations and problems (like fraud) the industry faced and failed to overcome. Today, LinkConnector exists as a prevailing affiliate marketing network sought out by Internet Retailer Top 500 merchants, top industry brands, leading affiliates and merchants across all verticals.

Multiple Management Solution Options
You can choose to have the LC Merchant Relations team manage every aspect of your affiliate marketing program, or you can choose à la carte program management options that tie into your in-house or Outsourced Program Manager (OPM) efforts. LinkConnector offers three basic program management solutions:
  • Self-Managed: Our base merchant package designed for merchants with an in-house Affiliate Manager or OPM available to manage their LinkConnector campaigns.
  • Co-Managed: More complete package of exclusive technologies, support and program management services. This account has access to a dedicated LinkConnector Account Manager.
  • Premier: A fully managed solution available by invitation only.
LinkConnector also offers a wide range of campaign management options that can add as much or as little as needed (if not included with an account type) to optimize and maximize your affiliate marketing efforts. For example, LinkConnector has a Creative Services division offering fresh and effective banner creation for merchants. The LC Creative Services team gets powerful creatives in the hands of affiliates to boost sales and increase click through and conversion rates.
