What’s affiliate marketing?


Affiliate marketing (sometimes called referral marketing or influencer marketing) is a sales and marketing strategy where you, the merchant or store owner, encourage your customers, media partners, and brand advocates to refer new business to you in exchange for a reward when that referral leads to a sale.

Kickbooster makes it easy for you to set up an affiliate marketing program in minutes.

Offer custom rewards

Offer your affiliates cash commissions or store credit in return for successful referrals. Customize the commision rate, the tracking period, and set an expiration on your offers.

Leverage our network

Only Pay for Performance

Consumers are more likely to buy a product that has been endorsed by someone they know. Use Kickbooster to encourage and manage affiliate referrals.

Get Access to New Audiences

Gain access to highly targeted audiences by offering an incentive for your affiliates to refer your products and store to their network.

Build an Army of Advocates

Grow and manage your affiliate, referral, and influencer network all in one place. More participants in your referral program = more traffic to your store = more sales.

Content Created for You

Your affiliates only get paid after you get paid, so it’s in their interest to help you market your store and make sales. Often, your affiliates will create awesome content like blog posts or video reviews to help sell your products.

More Positive Reviews

Participating in your referral program will make your affiliates feel emotionally invested in your store. They become advocates of your brand, and are much more likely to leave you a positive review when asked.

Only pay for sales you actually get with Kickbooster’s performance-based affiliate marketing programs & referral validation.

Offer Custom Rewards

Choose to offer cash commissions or store credit in return for successful referrals. Customize the rate, tracking period, and more.

Prevent Self-Referrals

Choose to automatically accept or reject commission payouts on self-referrals, or choose to review each self-referral individually before deciding how to handle it.

Sign-Up Page

Design an affiliate sign-up page that allows media outlets, bloggers, and your customers to register for your referral program so they can promote your products or store.

Marketplace

Add your referral program to our Marketplace to promote it to our network of media partners, industry bloggers, marketers, and affiliates.

Referral Review Period

Set a review period before commissions can be paid out for each sale. Throughout the review period, Kickbooster checks for refunded or cancelled sales to ensure commissions are only paid when you get paid.

Campaign Dashboard

Keep track of your clicks, referrals, and commissions-owing with our easy-to-use dashboard. Keep your finger on the pulse of your affilates’ efforts from one central location.

Cookie Duration Period

Easily set the amount of time between a click on your affiliates’ link and a confirmed sale that you will consider the sale as a direct referral from your affiliate.

Custom branding
