Just a few days after the launch, more than 2,000 bloggers and "Social Media Lovers" have joined the program, with products already being sold through sharing on Social Media.
The system is easy: the users just need to sign up as "Promoters", pick the products they like and share them on the Web. Each link will include the Promoter's details so that she/he earns a commission every time a sale is generated. Further info and registration at: http://www.blomming.com.
Blomming currently hosts more than 20,000 Shops. Among these, more than 500 have already joined the Affiliation program, a number that is growing day by day. Promotable Items are about 30,000 for a total 250,000 products in the platform catalogue. The most interesting ones are highlighted at http://www.blomming.com/buy and a bright new design has been conceived to facilitate product search.
The redesign has been made by GNV&Partners, a design and front-end studio that worked with international customers such as Matt Mullenweg and Om Malik, as well as other startups.
Nicola Junior Vitto, Founder and Product Strategist, stated that "E-Commerce can be a powerful engine for the monetization of the Net. And with the Social Affiliation Blomming opens up this opportunity to everybody. We think that this is a significant leap forward for Social Commerce. We are pleased with the very positive reactions we got from our Sellers, Bloggers and Social Media enthusiasts."
What is Blomming
Blomming has a peculiar vision of Social Commerce, offering a platform that allows anyone, individuals or businesses, to sell through their website, blog, or Facebook page as well as on Blomming itself and on smartphones, all from an integrated, pervasive platform. Over 50,000 users are currently registered with Blomming, powering more than 20,000 shops with a catalogue of over 250,000 products on sale.
What is the Social Affiliation
We all give opinions on products and Shopping advice to friends and relatives. And many of us do it on the Net, where we interact daily with others via Blogs or social networks like Facebook and Pinterest. Blomming, leading Social Commerce Platform, has designed its new Affiliation system to empower this.
It represents a new channel for those who sell, but also allows every Internet user to give value to Recommendation and Social Sharing activities. Everyone can monetize their content production or curation. The system fits perfectly with Blogs and Publishing or Community websites such as Sports, Music, Food & Wine, Travel, Mom Blogs, Crafts, Handmade, Design, etc.
Unlike other Affiliation programs, this is the first case in which Promoters are able to choose products according to their taste. In this way, they will only share what their Community is really interested in.
