While the concept of affiliate marketing is almost as old as Indian e-commerce itself, a new online startup Linkis is trying to bring a twist to it.
Launched by Parity Cube, a performance marketing company, linkis.in is introducing the concept of shopping boards to simplify the process of organizing different deals and coupons, to make them easy to discover by shoppers. Along with the proposition of letting shoppers earn money, it also allows fellow shoppers to follow and interact with avid shoppers in the community. It lets users create their own micro affiliate channels.
One needs to create a shopping board & add deals or coupons they discover on various e-commerce portals on the board created by them. Every time someone shops using a deal on a user’s shopping board, he/she can earn money in his linkis.in account.
For instance users can create a shopping board of Amazon coupons and add all Amazon coupons on it or create a board for Recharge deals & share all deals related to mobile recharge on it. And other users can follow the boards they find relevant.
Commenting on the launch Mr Mehul Jobanputra –CEO and Co-founder of Linkis.in said, “In the next six to eight months Linkis.in is all set to launch in countries such as UK and US. We are also pleased to announce that Linkis.in is the first of its kind product which caters to two different set of shoppers one who are looking to discover awesome deals and other set who are interested in making money by sharing deals”.
The technology backend is designed in such a way that online shoppers can share deals and all purchases made via those deals are automatically tracked by Linkis.in and commission earned is shared with the Deal hunters. The shoppers can earn as much as 75 % commission on every purchase which happens through the deals shared by them and also earn a discount on their own shopping by purchasing from the link generated by Linkis.in. Shoppers can encash once the earning has reached Rs 500 in their account.
While there are already several established couponing sites in the country, this might still come in handy for those who want to share the online offers they find with their friends. And also for those who are looking to earn some extra cash online.
