What Is AvantLink
To begin this article let me explain what AvantLink is all about. You of course can check them out on their website if you have any further questions that I don’t answer in this review. AvantLink is an online affiliate marketing company with many core values. They believe in innovation, integrity, excellence, quality over quality, and customer service. Of course, they do have a rule: We do not work with lead generation, adult content or gambling content.
To put it simple AvantLink is system that will connect business with marketers!
Who Is Accepted
According to there website, only vetted affiliates are accepted. So what is a vetted affiliate? A vetted affiliate is someone who has submitted their application and it has been accepted, it’s as simple as that. Let me give you the main topics that will keep your application from being accepted.
- Limited or no traffic is the #1 reason a person is denied.
- A new or incomplete website.
- Very little social following on social media. (yes they check this)
- Invalid or no website.
- You are just not a fit for this program.
Advantage To Being A Merchant
Being a merchant has advantages that I will get to in a minute but first I want to tell you briefly how to sign up as a merchant.
First you will need to decide which country you would like to focus your marketing in. Then you will log in and choose that country. The reason you do this is that each country has their own programs and set of rules. Companies can take advantage of all the technology, transparency, and control which will allow them to turn the wonderful system into a high yielding affiliate marketing program.
This model tends to favor merchants more than affiliates simply because merchants can choose to pay for only certain outcome. Whereas, more traditional models will be charged on a pay per click basis. Sometimes, when a person clicks on an ad that doesn’t always end with a sale, therefore the merchant would be losing money on a campaign that wasn’t producing sales.
Advantage To Being An Affiliate
AvanLink is a matchmaker so to speak. What I mean by that, is that they will match up an affiliate with a program that is best suited for the affiliate’s own website. So AvantLink, as you can see, is in the high tech love connection business!
Another big advantage, is that they are free for affiliates to join. When you join, you will have analytic available to track your progress, which is really helpful.
Is There How-To Training
To answer your question, yes they have many how-to videos that will help you get started. These can be found on there support page plus they also have a weekly training sessions that is scheduled for 11am-1pm mountain time. This training will cover many topics that are important to new and recent merchants.
For even more re information, check out the support tab on the main website.
How Are People Billed
Well I want to answer your question to how are people billed. Well, that depend on what people you are talking about. Because merchants are charged on the 1st of each month for the activity for the previous month they will usually maintain a 0 balance.
In the US you have the opinion of either ACH (Automated Clearing House) or Electronic Bill Payment (EBP) or check. What you don’t have is the use of credit card. But in Canada and Australia you can use ACH, EBP, check, AND credit card!
Also, affiliates are eligible to be paid on the 25th of each month because AvantLink can’t pay the affiliates until the merchants pay them. You must have a $50 minimum for PayPal and $100 for direct deposit.
How Is The Support
The support is great but don’t take just my word for it. There are a number of ways you can contact the support group.
If you will just look on their website at the very top you will see a tab that states “blog”, which I would state here except there are 140 pages.
Also, there is a tab that states “support” which you could also click to find more helpful topic. These are also divided into groups to help you.
How Are Sales Tracked
Now this is a very interesting tool that is offered by AvantLink. You simply put the code on each page or post of your website and then the analytic systems will track your visitor on your website!
If you will have a look at the website and then at the very top there 7 tabs. The 3rd tab over states “TOOLS”. Just press on that and you can see all the tools that come with this program. In this is where you will find the tracking tool that is used to track your visitor. It’s so awesome!!!!
What Countries Are Included
This is an interesting question because AvantLink is available in 3 major countries: USA, Canada, and Australia. That means companies will have a wider variety of affiliate companies to choose from. This also means that a merchant who lives in one country can sell to an affiliate who lives in another country making this a true worldwide organization.
