Free Fiver Friday is here!

Written by Lisa Hammond on . Posted in Network News

Forget #FF (Follow Friday)! For our publishers, Friday is now #FFF – Free Fiver Friday! For a bit of fun at the end of the week, we will be giving away $5 on Fridays to publishers.

Fridays are a time for rewarding yourself for a week’s hard work – indulge in a gourmet coffee, a well earned drink at the bar or a snack for the commute home. With #FFF that treat could be on us.

Getting involved is as easy as pie. If you are a publisher, just make sure that you tweet @AffWinUS each Friday and include hashtag #FFF. We’ll randomly select one tweet that we receive and credit them with their $5.

Make sure you are following @AffWinUS as well – so we can send you a direct message to confirm your account ID/handle if you’re one of our winners.

Festive Fun & Games with Affiliate Window

Written by Sam Surry on . Posted in Network News

The end is nigh! With the hectic festive season fully upon us, you might be a bit overwhelmed by all the hustle and bustle, and short of a vital present or two. Don’t worry, here’s a little glimmer of joy in the form of our new festive flash game – Refuel Rudolph.

Gone are the days when every child believed in Father Christmas and his team of magical flying reindeer; it’s 2012 and Christmas Spirit is in short supply…it’s a bad time to be an elf. Worse still, without Christmas Spirit Santa’s sleigh can’t get off the ground – which means Christmas is canceled!

Rudolph needs your help to save Christmas. Help him find the power to fly by eating his favorite festive foods – carrots, gingerbread men and mince pies. Collect enough and you could even win yourself some Christmas cash to treat yourself or your loved ones this holiday season.

Save Christmas and help our red nosed friend fly by feeding him all his favorite treats. Catch the most falling food from the sky and win big as it’s not all fun and games – there are also three cash prizes to be won!

1st Prize: $800 USD/CAD (£500 GBP)
2nd Prize: $480 USD/CAD (£300 GBP)
3rd Prize: $320 USD/CAD (£200 GBP)

Top Tool Tip: Create-a-Feed

Written by Jasmin on . Posted in Awin Tools

The Create-a-feed tool is designed to make product feed creation easy and user friendly. It can be found in the links and tools section of your account. Be aware that if you haven’t used it before it may take some time to load as we will be retrieving an API for your use.

To create the feed:

First, click on “select advertisers” and select the ones that you want in your feed. It will show you how many products that advertiser adds to the feed. Once saved, it will take you back to the main screen where you can see an increase in the total amount of products in the feed. If you then want specific brands or specific categories, you can include these by repeating the same process but with the different sections. Each time you filter it, the total amount of products in the feed will decrease.
