The scale of 11.11 is truly mindblowing and affiliate marketers should take advantage of it. Publishers have a huge opportunity to boost performance. Taking learnings and data from events such as Singles’ Day will help you to tweak strategies and campaigns based on consumer behavior.

So, what to keep in mind?
  1. Even though the big date is scheduled for 11 November, by now your affiliate preparations are, and should be, well on the way. Essentially, participating in Singles Day is a very systematic and comprehensive work.
  1. Choose the most hyping and at the same time the most relevant to your audience products and join the affiliate programs.
  1. Even if you were not going to set campaigns for Singles Day for some reasons and were originally planning to push only Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales, it’s still very much worth looking at 11.11. This shopping day is huge in Southeast Asia, and even the companies which put all their efforts towards Black Friday week, are still going to launch something exciting for Singles Day too in order to drive shoppers in-store earlier.

And of course remember, affiliate marketing success usually doesn’t happen overnight…unless it’s Singles Day or Black Friday, because the sales on these shopping festivals are insane.
