Less than a month ago, we unveiled several new commerce and crowdfunding features for IgnitionDeck, including a brand new simplified front-end submission module. Today, we’re excited to announce yet another addition to the module library, which features an oft-requested integration with AffiliateWP, the best and most popular commission tracking software for WordPress.
Once activated, this module allows you to track and manage referrals for products sold via IgnitionDeck Commerce. This means that you can now offer commissions and bonuses for eCommerce products, crowdfunding campaigns, donation drives, or any other type of fundraising effort.
Affiliate Marketing is a process by which an individual or company earns commissions by promoting other people’s products. If there’s a product you like, you can tell others about it and earn a portion of the profit on every sale you send their way.
AffiliateWP is a WordPress affiliate marketing plugin that enables you to manage your own affiliate program on your WordPress website, thereby allowing members to sign up as affiliates on your site and earn a commission for each new customer they refer to you.
This can dramatically increase sales, and is a great way to build an invested and loyal community, all keen to promote your website and products.
AffiliateWP, which is installed as a standard WordPress plugin, includes everything you need to build and manage your own affiliate network. They also offer multiple add-ons that you can use to increase the program’s potency. This means no outside affiliate programs or monthly fees, which will save you both time and money!
We believe in referral marketing so much that we’ve been hosting our own affiliate program for several years via an IgnitionDeck integration with the Shareasale affiliate network. This has allowed bloggers, theme builders, and other successful entrepreneurs to earn thousands of dollars in commissions for referring new customers to IgnitionDeck Echelon and IgnitionDeck Enterprise.
However, it didn’t take long for us to fall in love with the combined power of IgnitionDeck and AffiliateWP, so we’ve moved our entire affiliate program over to this new network. Sign up now and earn up to 25% on each and every visitor you send!
Our AffiliateWP module is included with the purchase of IgnitionDeck Echelon or Enterprise, but requires a licensed copy of AffiliateWP in order to get started. You can find and activate this product via the IgnitionDeck->Modules menu, which also includes links to documentation should you get stuck at any point during activation.
We’re very excited about this new feature, and look forward to seeing the many ways it will be used in building new and innovative fundraising platforms.
