New affiliate monitoring tool to revolutionize affiliate marketing
With compliance issues running rampant throughout the gambling affiliate industry, Wag.io has set out to change the online gambling affiliate space forever.
Affiliate managers in the online gambling space continue to struggle with compliance, with many companies coming up short over the past 12 months.
With many brands restructuring their affiliate programs including Jackpotjoy, Paddy Power/ Betfair and 888 there is a significant shift in the space. Ladbrokes, for example, has implemented stricter oversight of affiliates after the CMA contacted the company about misleading bonuses and offers.
Other companies have taken an entirely different approach, realising that running an affiliate marketing program is too much of a risk. Sky Betting & Gaming (SB&G) terminated its popular “Affiliate Hub” run affiliate program as of October 2, 2017, citing “growing regulatory concerns.”
Led by CEO Roo Wright, Wag.io is set to change the way the online gambling affiliate space works for the betterment of both operators and affiliates. Here’s what he had to say about the current state of the industry:
“It’s a shame to see so many brands, big and small, running into issues regarding affiliate compliance. Even worse, it’s never good to see once popular affiliate programs closing down due to an inability to monitor affiliate activity.”
Wag.io uses Artificial Intelligence to power its bespoke web application, affiliate managers can use the application to watch over affiliates promotional content including text and banner promotions, and identify potential issues with compliance and brand guidelines for the operator’s brands.
“Wag.io is constantly on the lookout on behalf of brands,” added Wright. “If everything checks out with your affiliates, there’s nothing to worry about. However, if a problem is spotted, the affiliate manager receives an alert through the application interface.”
Wag.io helps affiliate managers with the four key job responsibilities: manage, find, watch, and report.
The manage functionality in the Wag.io application acts as a fully featured CRM. The CRM enables an affiliate manager to add affiliates, look at the assets of an affiliate including their best ranking web pages and then build deals that can be sent to the affiliate for their acceptance. All communications including emails and tasks that focus around an affiliate are all stored for easy access and a record of communications giving you a complete paper trail.
Wag.io was designed to maximise affiliate manager efficiency, boost profits, and dramatically reduce the need to manually track affiliate compliance.
With this tool on their side, affiliate managers can work more effectively and achieve greater results, all the while keeping a steady eye on affiliate compliance.
Click Profits Ltd the company behind Wag.io launches the product in November and is currently taking meeting requests for demos at both BAC and SIGMA in the same month.
