Thinking about your affiliate program, how long have you been in this space?
THE ICONIC affiliate program has been running for 7 years, launched in 2014.
How do you work with Skimlinks today?
Skimlinks helps us streamline our affiliate program, in particular to help monetise affiliate links for some key content publications that we work closely with.
You’ve been able to build great relationships with publishers through Skimlinks, what value has that brought?
Throughout a challenging year in 2020, Skimlinks was able to connect us with new publishers across different verticals, but especially in the content landscape. Being able to have direct communication with these content partners has allowed us to work more closely and strategically, and we have seen strong growth off the back of this.
