If you are still confused about affiliate marketing and how TalkCharge is acing the game then have a look at the little Ted talk with TalkCharge:
Is Affiliate Marketing & Performance Marketing Related?
Answering to this Ankush Katiyar, Founder of TalkCharge said “In a broader prospect Affiliate Marketing can be considered as a type of Performance-based Marketing” adding to this he also told us “Performance-based marketing is a way of online marketing and advertising in which advertisers like Flipkart, Swiggy, Myntra pays a commission to marketing companies like TalkCharge when a specific action is completed; such as a sale, lead or click.”
This made us eager to dig deep, and we couldn’t stop ourselves from asking;
How is it better than other forms of Marketing? Or why one should not go for the traditional ATL or BTL activity?
As answered by Shivani Maheshwari – Chief Operating Officer TalkCharge, she said “Unlike other forms of traditional advertising like Above The Line or Below The Line activities where commission or price is paid upfront and is independent of the success of the ads or sales it will generate, advertisers or affiliate providers in Affiliate marketing only pay for successful transactions or sales.
This Performance-based marketing has changed the traditional value schema of advertising, as now for advertisers, the real-time measurement of ROI is possible.”
One question that was jumping in our heads is; – Affiliate marketing may be a remunerative situation for both advertisers and publishers, but what about the consumers?
We were then informed about the catch here- CASHBACK!
TalkCharge is acing the game and winning hearts as it shares 95% of the commission with its customers in the form of Cashback while they shop via TalkCharge App or Website.
This amount can be used by transferring in TalkCharge Wallet or back to their bank accounts or redeem it to make Recharges, Bill Payments or purchase Giftcards of renowned brands like Bata, Croma, BookMyShow, BigBazaar & more.
We believe that Affiliate Marketing is a win-win case benefitting new Start-ups like Ajio, The Moms Co, established brands like Flipkart, BookMyShow, MakeMyTrip, Cashback & Coupon Websites like TalkCharge and even a good source of passive income to people who don’t have their product or site!
It will be interesting to see how this billion’s worth industry will reap in this dynamic era. TalkCharge is already rocking the charts by continuously upgrading itself with all the latest updates.
But, as TalkCharge says, Keep Upgrading your goal to stay a step of your competition.
