The emerging activewear brand just launched their company with a directive to grow brand awareness and sales with a limited budget.
After discussions with the Versa business development team, the activewear brand decided to move forward with a performance-based affiliate program as their primary go-to-market marketing channel.

Editors writing about relevant topics and reaching the activewear’s target audience were identified and contacted. Product was sent to them, and the brand story and product focus explained.

Within the first 6 months the activewear’s affiliate program was generating a monthly run-rate of 6 figure sales and rapidly growing each month.
Editor reviews and write-ups helped amplify the brand’s products. The earned media secured would live indefinitely on the publications and was ranking on the first page of google for many of the brand’s relevant keyword terms.
