Hi everyone,

My name is Kier and I'm an Account Manager at Webgains. We're an affiliate network, initially founded in London but we've now expanded across Europe (France, Germany, The Netherlands, Denmark and Sweden so far) and we've recently put live our Irish platform: Webgains.ie. Following a chat with Michele I've come here to say hi, explain what we're all about and start building up relationships with you guys.

Currently there are two programs live for you to promote specifically on the Irish platform: Envirofone and Electric Shopping and we have plenty more that we're currently integrating so I'll be letting you know as and when new programs go live. You can of course also promote any of the other merchants that we have on the various regional networks should you have relevant traffic available.

To tell you a little bit about what we're all about:

Account Management - Each account manager specialises in several sectors and deals with all programs within those sectors. This means if you're big in lead gen for example, you can quickly get recommendations on the best programs we have currently going and your AM will have a good understanding of the market in question. We also do not split our account management staff into separate teams for merchants and affiliates, we all deal with both sides of the relationship to ensure a thorough understanding of the issues involved.

Technology - Our tracking is extremely reliable and can track orders even where cookies have been deleted or blocked. Affiliates have reported this can mean up to 10% more orders are tracked when compared with other networks. We always strive to ensure you have the best quality product feeds available and map all merchant categories to our own category tree for consistency. We've also recently introduced tracking functionality specifically to deal with voucher code promotions which offers a lot of flexibility in running exclusive offers for individual affiliates and can even be used for offline promotion. All merchant news, promotions etc. are published on our blog where you can get RSS feeds to stay up to date with everything that's going on.

Naturally there's more I could say but I'll keep it brief ;)

I'm very interested to get to know you all and build up productive relationships so please don't hesitate to get in touch and let me know what I can do for you.

Welcome to the site :)

Do you guys have an Irish office at present or are you based in the UK?

Hiya,

We're currently running this out of our London office but as it expands we'll be looking to get an office running in Ireland as we do for the other countries we're present in.

Hey Kier!
Welcome to Ireland. The most underserved and under exploited market in the world for affiliate networks :)

It is very refreshing to see the UK networks taking an interest as there are a lot of good affiliates here that keep well under the radar.

Great you give out your IM too. Some CJ performers *cough cough* cannot even get their AM's IM! (True).

I absolutely love working with the UK networks. (OMG and to a lesser extent buy.at) If you can source some Irish financial vertical merchants, I think you will be in VERY good shape. Tradedoubler have made an effort with merchants here but believe me, a lot are WAY behind and are only exploring online for the first time.

Just signed up now. Nice easy process.

Hopefully we can have a chat soon.

Hiya,

Nice speaking to you the other day. So you know all the AM team here are contactable by MSN, phone or email. We also have a support email address and MSN contact for after hours support.
