Building intelligent links through Geniuslink is a great way to ensure that your entire global audience is arriving at the optimal destination when they click on one of your links. When someone in the UK clicks on your Amazon link, you want to make sure they’re arriving at the product you’re promoting in the Amazon.co.uk storefront. Likewise, when someone on an iPhone clicks on an album link from Japan, you want to ensure you’re sending them to that album in the iTunes Japan store.
I’m sure you may be asking yourself, “Who are Tapdaq?” So, let’s start by answering that question.
Tapdaq is a community of developers who exchange insights and installs to help each other build better applications and acquire users, for no cost.
Ultimately, we believe developers who build high quality applications should have a fair opportunity to succeed, and from the start, GeoRiot has been helping us to achieve this.
The Story of Bob McRecords
Bob McRecords arrives at his office on the 12th floor of the EarJam record label headquarters Monday morning as usual, still wiping the sleep from his eyes and sipping his first coffee. He had spent the weekend attending shows for one of the label’s biggest artists and was suffering the consequences of back-to-back late nights out. But it’s a big week for EarJam Records, and more specifically for Bob. Their newest musical superstar will be releasing her debut album and, as the digital marketing manager for the label, it’s up to Bob to ensure that it sells. As Bob drains the final sip of his liquid energy, he settles into his chair and prepares for his best marketing effort, ever.
Today, Bob is not just a digital marketer. Today Bob is a superhero in the world of Digital Marketing, saving the damsel in distress from flat record sales, and taking EarJam records into Profit Town – one digital album at a time.
Notice something different?
We thought you’d never ask.
We’re absolutely tickled to introduce (drumroll please!): GeoRiot 3.0.
First, you might notice we’ve had a little work done. (Hey, after nearly four years and closing in on a billion clicks we’re not spring chickens anymore!) Along with our sleek new look, you’ll notice a cleaned up, more concise explanation of, and approach to, international affiliate linking.
However, as you familiarize yourself with the new GeoRiot website and updated dashboard (don’t be shy, we’re still the same unified affiliate linking provider you know and love!) you’ll see that our makeover is just as much about brains as it is beauty.
Our first-of-its-kind, zero-click link-making tool is front and center, greeting all those who enter. Kind of like our version of a ‘Welcome’ mat. We figured, why beat around the bush? Creating bad a$$ globally aware affiliate links is what we do best. By featuring the tool, we’re making it easier than ever to convert your iTunes links into a single, internationally aware affiliate link. Pretty cool, huh? Feel free to grab an iTunes product URL and play around with it. (While you’re at it, help yourself to a free GeoRiot account using our new automated account set-up process. Go ahead…. We’ll wait…)
Dive a bit deeper into the new GeoRiot and you’ll soon discover that our site is chock full of support and resources. Last summer, we went back to the proverbial drawing board to begin this massive overhaul. We had lots of ideas about how to improve GeoRiot, but one collective goal. We wanted to bring affiliate linking to the masses by making every step of the process über user-friendly. From explaining the problem at the root of it all: geo-fragmentation, to helping you build and manage your links, to offering detailed illustrated affiliate network guides, to providing support for optimizing and tracking your links – we’ve created a site that we hope will broaden and extend the appeal of affiliate linking, rather than cause users to throw up their hands and reach for a beer. To make sure we accomplished this goal, we even spent some time in the video-editing booth creating a series of HD tutorials to help you get started with the TradeDoubler, DGM and LinkShare affiliate networks, and then incorporate them into your GeoRiot dashboard. Head over to our brand new YouTube channel to watch these and, while you’re there, be sure to check out our animated promo video. It’s pretty cute if we do say so ourselves.
It’s been a long and exhausting couple of weeks wrapping things up. We’ve consumed enough energy drinks to fuel a professional football team and had plenty of Turntable.fm- inspired late night dance-offs, but we’re passionate about what it is that we do. We’re on a mission to fix the Internet one affiliate link at a time, and the new GeoRiot.com is doing just that.
We couldn’t be more pleased with our appearance in this month’s issue of Appreneur Magazine!
