Setting up exclusive rates is one of the best ways to optimize with our Publishers. We are constantly working with the networks to make this process as seamless as possible. You can set up an exclusive rate for a Publisher or group of Publishers if any of the following apply:
- You are in CJ, Impact or Partnerize. You can set up exclusive rates for our Publishers in your network (instructions for each network in link for network).
- You have spoken with our Managed editorial Publishers (e.g. Hearst, Verizon Media Group, Conde Nast, Vox Media). Please have that Publisher reach out to their Skimlinks Publisher Development Manager to set up the exclusive rate.
- You have a Skimlinks Merchant Account Manager. Please contact your AM about setting up exclusive rates for groups of Skimlinks Publishers or individual Publishers.
If none of the above apply to you, then we encourage you to increase your rate to Skimlinks overall in your affiliate network and update your Merchant Profile with your latest offers, hot products, etc. This is the type of information our Publishers are really interested in as they are constantly updating the products they link out to, and this should help grow revenue!
Setting up exclusive rates with a specific Publisher or groups of Publishers requires operational time and cost so we need to be sure it is financially rewarding for all parties, which is why we have the above requirements for setting these up.
