Welcome to another edition of The Affiliate Buzz, where affiliate marketers have been coming to be inspired, informed and motivated to succeed since way back in 2003. Arlene is away today, but Rachel Honoway and Eric Nagel of FMTC are with James to discuss datafeeds, aggregating affiliate content and tools for linking updated deals to affiliate websites.
Too Much to Keep Up With?
You may have noticed that there’s a lot to keep up with - multiple merchants belonging to multiple affiliate networks, coupons and promotional codes that may or may not work, fixes for things that are broken, new deals coming out all of the time. So how do you keep your site fresh, current and updated with the very best deals for your readers?
FMTC specializes in aggregating affiliate content and making it available to affiliates and bloggers through a series of services and tools. They test all of those coupons, categorize deals by merchant and product and make it easy to tap into their feed of cleaned, categorized and profitable deals. Rachel and Eric will tell you what FMTC has to offer for both niche sites and enterprise customers.
How to Integrate FMTC’s Data into your Site
It’s great to know that there’s someone out there testing to make sure all of the coupons and promotional codes work. But how do you integrate their aggregated data into your site? Eric will tell you where to find the instructions for integrating the datafeed. He’ll also describe a WordPress plug-in, designed to work hand-in-hand with the WordPress Clipper theme, that will allow you to connect FMTC’s feed to your site.
