As we move into the final quarter of the year, there's only one thing on everyone's mind - how can we round off the year successfully? At Affiliate Window, we are constantly striving to produce tools and solutions which will help you to be most effective during the busy festive season. Not working with us already?

The Hub, our publisher portal, is a great way for our publishers and advertisers to communicate with transparency, keeping our publishers updated on Affiliate Window program launches, network news and latest promotions. Our advertisers and account managers actively keep TheHub current with everything you'll need to know to run a successful affiliate campaign.
Search for keywords and brands, as well as browse through the various categories in order to find the posts most relevant to your own site and activity. Additionally, access centralized news from the network, the industry calendar and publisher newsletter archive.

Our Google Chrome extension for publishers, MyAW adds a button to the Chrome toolbar which can be used when a publisher visits any Affiliate Window advertiser site, whether they are joined to the programs or not. Publishers can join programs, quickly generate shortened tracker links, 'One-click' share links on Twitter, Facebook and Google Plus; generate custom URLs and generate links to specific product pages.
In addition, the extension shows all the latest consumer offers and will highlight the exclusive coupons available to publishers. For those publishers with multiple accounts, 'one-click' account switch functionality has been added for ease of use. The plugin also offers a 'one click' deep link generator. You can see a live demo on our YouTube page.
Exclusive Coupon Codes
Advertisers can now offer exclusive codes to publishers which are only visible to the chosen publisher. The code feed was modified to include the exclusive codes. Publishers who wish to include this detail in the feed are required to pull the new link from the discount codes page.
In order to add greater transparency, our interface reveals to advertisers if a publisher uses an unauthorized exclusive code, as it will be marked red further highlighting which publisher should be credited with the transaction.
Overall, you will find that the discount code pages (both for advertisers and publishers) have been improved to ensure a user friendly interface.
Batch Processing Transaction Queries
Our market leading transaction query system hugely benefits both publishers and advertisers!
Publishers can upload any number of claims with ease and efficiency by creating a csv of the transactions they wish to query and upload them all at once.
It's just as easy for advertisers too who can simply download the queried transactions, add the word 'approved' or 'declined' to them and then re-upload the file for processing. Better still, you can even amend the amounts of commission involved and our system will know to automatically apply any changes you make. Adding, reviewing and altering claims has never been so easy.
Mobile Tracking Ensured!
Earlier this year, we launched an initiative to ensure advertisers without tracking on their mobile sites were diverting mobile traffic through to the desktop version of the site. While this did not lend itself to a seamless mobile customer experience, it meant publishers were being fairly rewarded for the sales they were driving through mobile handsets. This was put in place as an interim measure and as soon as advertisers add tracking to their mobile sites, all traffic will be sent back to the mobile site to ensure a fully optimized mobile customer journey.
Your Vote Counts
The Revenue Performance survey for the Top 20 Performance Marketing Networks is now open. Whether you are a publisher or advertiser, your views matter. 2013 saw us take further steps to introduce new products and to improve our service levels as evidenced above.
