The easiest and most common way to boost your profile as a merchant is to increase the commission rate you give to our Publishers on an ongoing basis. You can do this by increasing the commission rate for Skimlinks in your affiliate network. We will pass this down to our Publishers.
If we need to accept the rate in the network, or if you have increased by at least 25-50% please notify our Account Specialist team here. We alert our newsletter and publisher development teams about increased rates weekly. To qualify for consideration into our daily newsletters to Publishers, a brand must increase their base rate by 25-50% or be a Paid Preferred Partner for at least 3 months.
Increased rates create an incentive for Publishers to write about your products and can lead them to writing more content as they are attracted to the potential higher returns. Our system will pull in this rate automatically and update the Merchant profile in our Skimlinks Publisher Hub within 24 hours.
Editorial integrity is of utmost importance for our Publishers so while they cannot guarantee exposure or uplift, increasing your commission rate increases your chances of getting more coverage from our Publishers. They are highly motivated by long term increased commission rates. It also helps to keep our Publishers notified of offers, sales, new & hot products, collaborations, special deals, etc. They also appreciate receiving any specific company information about your ethos and values. All of this gives them content inspiration.
