Using data feeds to promote products

This article helps affiliates understand how they can utilise data feeds to promote products on their website.

Data feeds can be a great way to promote an advertiser and refer traffic to their website or online store for customers to transact. The Data Feeds section under the Creatives area on the platform will contain information such as the advertiser's name, the name of the data feed, the type of data feed, and the number of items, as well as when the data feed was last updated.

Data feeds can be used by affiliates to promote multiple products on a single page, through to creating an entire affiliate store powered by data feeds obtained from selected advertisers. For instance, you may choose to create an affiliate 'surf shop' by using 5+ advertisers selling relevant products and brands or creating a shop section within your website or blog.

For new affiliates and affiliates that are not experienced with using data feeds, Commission Factory recommends using a third-party service such as datafeedr or WP All Import to help make this process easier and streamlined.
