Patronomy.com founder Nigel Roth has announced the launch of an affiliate marketing platform for his crowdfunding platform. The program aims to help project creators solve the hardest problem for any crowdfunding campaign: where and how to find backers.
According to Roth, Patronomy provides project owners with support before launch, during campaigns, and in an ongoing long term partnership. “We believe in supporting our project owners in all aspects of their business, from the first stages of project presentation through to the final stages of delivery logistics and ongoing sales. Affiliate Marketing is just one of those Added Value Services but for most project owners it may well be the only way they will succeed,” he said.
Roth cites the advantage of using affiliates, saying the setup cost is low and the cost is a calculated percentage of what is raised. In short, he expects it to be a cost-effective marketing solution for project creators on Patronomy.
The referral program is run on the ShareaSale Network and affiliates are paid for valid leads. The program is run in-house and affiliates are paid a percentage determined by the project owner. More details can be found on their website here.
