Singles Day or 11.11 Sale is one of the biggest global shopping festivals launched by Chinese online stores. Every year we see the explosive growth of customer demand warmed up by huge discounts for a broad range of different goods and items.

How can publishers benefit from this hot time period? Our recommendations are in the article below.

Sales are a really hot time for everyone in the affiliate marketing ecosystem. Advertisers increase their sales due to roaring customer demand, and publishers benefit from extra fees. Here’s the graph showing the conversion rate change for ‘Goods from China’ from November 1st to November 20th in 2018 (according to Admitad data):

So what can and should publishers do to get the most of Singles Day Sale?

Here’s the list of our recommendations based on the internal data and the information received at the summer meeting with Aliexpress team:

  • What do advertisers need, want and expect from any affiliate channel? New customers, indeed! So if you focus on this audience, advertisers will appreciate your work greatly
  • Native advertising: this is a type of promotion that customers like, it gives them a reason to make a purchase. Advertisers like it when they work with medium-level publishers. Bear this in mind!
  • 2019 is a year of explosive growth of new traffic channels. If you have a blog, social media channel or a chat in messengers, YouTube vlog, emailing service, you can easily benefit from Singles Day activities.
