Rated People Case Study
Rated People was using Impact Radius to manage their affiliate management programme in the UK. As the affiliate sector was the biggest source of high-quality performance-based leads for them it was prudent to invest in a modern affiliate tech. One of the biggest pain-point on their existing platform was the high level of fraud and the ability to control fraudulent pay-outs.
They were also struggling to identify the intrinsic worth of a lead to their business and to understand the net ROI from every lead. Moreover, the lack of flexible commercial pay-out options restricted their ability to work with only few partners. It was also very challenging to understand profitability for their specific trade sectors. To manage the affiliate sector efficiently they resorted to lot of manual reconciliation through spreadsheets.
A stringent bidding process was undertaken, and majority of leading online lead generation & affiliate marketing tech providers were invited to bid. After a 2-month long process to identify the most apt technology partner out of 4 top vendors Webosaurus’ s customer acquisition platform Webolytics was chosen.
Rated People chose to take 12-month SAAS license subscription of Webolytics platform to manage their UK affiliate programme more effectively.
