Analytics & Attribution


The success of any marketing effort depends on attributing metrics to it, especially for affiliate programs. Attribution helps answer crucial questions like acquiring new customers, the impact on other marketing initiatives, and which affiliate and influencer partnerships contribute to sales.

Without proper analytics, marketing decisions are often made blindly, leading to wasted time, money, and missed opportunities. For over a decade, we’ve been leaders in Analytics & Attribution and data-driven affiliate program management. Our expertise, paired with our proprietary AIM Insights technology, utilizes some of the most advanced insights and analytics tools in the industry, including projection and placement planning tools, as well as trackers for measuring return on investment (ROI) and return on ad spend (ROAS).

What kind of performance metrics do you look at that drive growth?

We don’t rely on a single metric for our program strategy. Instead, we analyze a mix of quantitative and qualitative data points to measure and drive our growth strategies. Our focus is on identifying factors in your program that contribute to increased new customer growth, capturing sales from competitors, and driving revenue from existing customers. We aim to provide context and a deeper understanding of key indicators used to assess the overall health of an affiliate program. Recognizing that each client has unique goals, we establish tailored strategies to meet their specific needs.

How will you define, track and measure incrementality in my program?

We view incrementality as capturing conversions and revenue that might otherwise be missed, such as gaining market share from competitors, reaching new customers, and extracting extra value from existing sales drivers. We monitor standard KPIs like new customer rates while also analyzing qualitative aspects of the purchase funnel to optimize traffic and sales for our merchants. From conversion rates and basket size to AOV and frequency of purchase, we focus on enhancing click-through rates starting at the top of the funnel and working our way down.
