Make Your Affiliate Program More Competitive with Compelling Creatives


With over 80% of e-commerce brands implementing partnership programs, you have to stand out from the competition somehow. While you can try incentives like higher commission rates, there is another angle you can take that won’t necessarily cost you any extra time or money. In this article, we’re diving into the secret sauce behind every killer affiliate program – your creatives section. It’s time to get creative with your creatives!

Why You Should Optimize Your Creatives Section

Picture this: You’ve spent all this time and money starting your affiliate program. You’ve got this fantastic partnership channel all set up and ready for lift-off. You reach out to all the most strategic partners to onboard. You’ve got the products, the commissions, the whole shebang, but something’s missing. You’re stuck wondering why you’re not getting any bites until it finally hits you! You forgot the visuals. 

Equipping your affiliate network profile with canned creatives and media for your partners to incorporate into their content is a sure-fire way to make sure your affiliate-generated content matches your brand voice and style as well as attracts top-producing affiliates looking for robust programs with a wealth of materials to join yours. This signals to them that they will have support when they partner with you. Think, providing high-quality media to promote your brand can help the publisher during their creative process whether that is helping better understand your brand guidelines or sparking inspiration for their content pieces, providing a rich bank of content will lighten their load which is a huge green flag.

Content Examples

You can stock your creative section with virtually anything you want to get promoted through publisher content. Of course, you need your brand logo, but what else could you supply your partners with? Here we list all the ways you can supply visuals and campaign language that will make your affiliate program pop. Walk with us.


Equip your creatives section with mockup photos of your products as well as lifestyle photos that depict your brand in your desired aesthetic. Affiliates can mimic these images or post your original content directly. These can likely be pulled from your existing media projects. This will be great for keeping your brand cohesive across different campaigns which will boost your brand visibility. 

Think about it – affiliates at their core are content creators. They thrive on things like product images, lifestyle shots, banners, social media graphics – you name it, they need it. Because let’s face it, nobody wants to see the same old boring stuff all the time.

Campaign Language

You can also include campaign language for promotions or even scripts and captions you want your affiliates to use. This will cut their production time in half while still ensuring your desired quality and style are met without fail. If you want to still give your affiliates some creative control, it can serve as a guideline for their content writing process. Win-win.


Bottom line? Optimizing your creative section is the secret weapon of any successful affiliate program. If you want to compete with other e-commerce brands seeking the same partnerships that you have, build your program with compelling creatives that will attract the best and brightest to your program. Your competition is quaking in their boots.
