Yazing Hopes to Simplify Affiliate Marketing & Monetize Recommendations
Yazing, a new monetization platform for bloggers, social media influencers, and affiliates launched their first version of their platform last week.
In a nutshell, anyone can become a member of Yazing and as such, instantly become an affiliate and start earning cash rewards promoting brands they love.
Members gain instant access to a growing list of brands and can connect people to the brand’s deal page on the Yazing platform. When someone the member has recommended makes a purchase, the member will earn the affiliate commission on the transaction.
Yazing’s founder, Adam Viener, is well-known in the affiliate marketing industry and has also contributed content here on ReveNews. Yazing is a new side passion project for him while he continues to grow his primary business, Imwave.
Adam had this to say when asked to comment about Yazing,
“Mommy bloggers, brand enthusiasts, and early adopters have been posting valuable recommendations online for years; we are excited to launch our platform that will enable them to be generously compensated for the relevant transactions they are influencing”.
At its core, Yazing plans on being a massive sub-affiliate network giving its members instant access to promote brands across affiliate networks. But unlike an affiliate network, Yazing members link to a brand’s deals and coupons page on Yazing.com instead of linking directly to the merchant.
In its current beta format, Yazing offers access to promote 50 advertisers including Angie’s List, Brookstone, Corner Stork Baby Gifts, eCampus, Expedia, Hotels.com, KitchenAid, MyCorporation, Outdoor Tech, Spenser’s Gifts, PoolProducts.com, Spartan Race and more.
While in most cases, affiliates/bloggers earn larger commission percentages when dealing directly with the advertiser or network, there are a handful of reasons why one might choose to make things easier on themselves by utilizing the Yazing platform.
No Expired Links: Since Yazing will be working directly with multiple networks, affiliates/bloggers won’t have to worry about dead links. If an advertiser switches networks or deals expire, Yazing will update the links on their site, so affiliates/bloggers won’t need to.
Automatically Embedded Disclosures: The FTC requires disclosures when a recommendation is made that an affiliate/blogger receives compensation for. Yazing’s brand’s deal and coupon page will already contain the required disclosure information so that the affiliate/blogger won’t need to worry about it.
Less Chance of Overwritten Cookies: Yazing acts as an affiliate/blogger’s personal deals and coupon code site. When recommending a brand, visitors will see latest deals and coupons eliminating the need for them to search for a coupon code later on, should they decide to make a purchase from your recommended link. This may result in an enhanced shopping experience for the customer and subsequently better conversion rate and less of a chance of overwritten cookies for the affiliate/publisher.
Less Cumbersome Commission Payouts: Rather than affiliate/publishers needing to monitor commissions for many advertisers and affiliate networks, Yazing consolidates it all into one simple accounting and payout. As the platform adds more advertisers, affiliate/publishers will immediately receive access to them.
Increased Commission Rates: For a limited time, Yazing is passing on 100% of the commissions from the affiliate networks to its members (unlike other platforms that take a piece of the transaction). I’m not sure how long this policy will last but for now it means that affiliate/bloggers would receive the same commission rates via Yazing that they would normally receive if they worked directly with each network and brand.
Yazing also plans to pool its combined transaction power of its members to be able to negotiate higher commission rates to increase the earning potential for their members.
