AffiliateTraction aids AvantLink

AvantLink has established a Canadian presence with the help of AffiliateTraction. The country’s latest affiliate network has tailored its programmes specifically toward the country's consumers. So much so that AvantLink believes it’s the first exclusively Canadian network.

AffiliateTraction and AvantLink have decided the time is right to capitalise on Canada’s double-digit growth year-on-year growth in online commerce. The launch wasn’t a hasty decision, though. Almost a year of market testing and launch preparation took place according to AffiliateTraction.

CEO of AffiliateTraction, Greg Shepard, was pleased with Canada’s latest performance entrant. “We are building on our long-standing and successful relationship in the US and can now offer Canada an affiliate channel worthy of its reputable brands and fast growing online commerce sector,” he enthused.

AffiliateTraction brands available on launch

Several of AffiliateTraction’s Canadian clients will be immediately available with the launch of They include Under Armour Canada, North by Northwest and Skull Candy Canada. The network’s regular toolset will be available to help affiliates can captialise on their use of the launch brands.

Publishers and merchants don’t actually have to be from Canada either. AvantLink is opening up the application process to those in other countries. Payments will support Canadian, US, British and Australian currencies.

Scott Kalbach, CEO of AvantLink, was appreciative of the network’s affiliates. "AvantLink publishers are savvy individuals and having access to a dedicated, Canada-only affiliate network will enable them to take their marketing efforts to the next level," he said.
