Inviting publishers to join a program

  • Aktualisiert

If you are interested in cooperating with particular publishers, you can invite them to join your program. For that, send them invitations to join your program in the Inviting publishers section.

Invitations will help you increase the number of affiliates in your program—and thus get more clients and orders.

This section contains the following:

  • The Publisher invitations tab. It displays the list of Admitad Partner Network publishers' ad spaces from which you can pick a relevant one and invite them to join your program. How to do that

  • The Invitation history tab. Here you will find the list of invitations that have already been sent. You can also track invitation statuses or review sent invitations here. Learn more about this section

Rules and restrictions in invitation management

  • Weekly limit: 10 invitations.
    You can see the remaining invitations for the current week to the right of the tab names. The counter is reset every Monday.

  • Limit per ad space: You can only send 1 invitation per ad space.
    After an invitation is sent, the corresponding ad space will disappear from the list in the Publisher invitations section and appear in the Invitation history tab.

  • Sending invitations will be unavailable if the program no longer allows new publishers.
    To send new invitations resume search for publishers in the program. 

  • Invitations cannot be sent to some publishers.
    Publishers can disable invitations from programs. In this case, the following hint will appear in the Invitations column: Unsubscribed from invitations.

How to send an invitation on your own

1. In the account, go to the Inviting publishers section (Publishers → Inviting publishers).

2. Find a relevant ad space.

You can do that:

Using the search bar if you know the ad space's name or the username of the publisher you want to invite. Just start typing the name or username and select the item from the dropdown list.

You can use the following filters:

  • Region. This filter helps find ad spaces generating traffic from a particular country.
    After you select the Relevant to the program option, you will see the list of ad spaces that generated target actions from regions matching those specified in your program for the last 3 months.

  • Category. This filter helps find ad spaces already connected to programs of a particular category. You can select a parent category (with all subcategories) or a specific subcategory. As a search result, ad spaces that generated target actions for the programs of the selected category for the last 3 months will appear.

  • Account level. This filter helps find ad spaces owned by publishers with a particular account level.

  • Only show publishers who can receive notifications. This filter helps find ad spaces of publishers who allow notifications from programs.

After all the options are selected, click Apply.

3. The page will show publishers meeting the specified criteria.

You can also visit a publisher ad space (e.g., a website) and review its design and content. For that, click invitations-1.png next to the ad space name.

This function doesn't work for ad spaces of the Traffic purchase type. In this case, the link will lead to the advertising platform's website (e.g., ads.google.com)

4. Click Send next to the ad space you're interested in.

5. You will see the invitation template in the language specified in the publisher account settings at the time of sending the invitation.

You can edit this template if you need to. For example, you can offer the publisher custom terms or a bonus to encourage them to join your program.

6. Click Send to send the invitation.

Done! Your invitation has been sent.

After that, the following will happen:

  • the ad space will be moved to the table in the Invitation history tab. You can track the statuses of sent invitations there.
  • if the publisher accepts your invitation and connects their ad space to your program / submits a request for joining the program, the manager (who sent the invitation) will receive an email notification about such an event.
  • In this case, the status of the accepted invitation will be changed to Connected.
