Rakuten Marketing LLC Key Developments

Rakuten Marketing Enhances Affiliate Technology Suite

akuten Marketing announced it has enhanced its affiliate technology suite with the addition of multiple product feeds a new feature of its merchandiser feed platform. Multiple product feeds give publishers and advertisers the flexibility to customize product groups for target audiences, while easily applying correct product information, pricing, currency and languages. This new feature will empower marketers to more effectively scale their global affiliate strategies and streamline personalized content creation to increase product conversion. The multiple product feeds feature delivers a new level of audience segmentation to affiliate marketing that enables strategic content customization based on what marketers know about their audiences. The added flexibility it provides lets advertisers easily manage and distribute the segmented data feeds through the Rakuten Marketing Affiliate Network. For example, an advertiser can organize product feeds based on language and currency to more efficiently scale the launch process for global campaigns. By leveraging multiple product feeds in strategic collaboration with publisher partners, advertisers can also increase sales of specific product categories by identifying and targeting those audiences that will be most likely to buy. Publishers also benefit from using their advertiser partners' multiple product feeds to improve content personalization. This latest enhancement allows users to continue to upload files utilizing the same process as existing merchandiser feed files, while expanding an advertiser's ability to upload feeds in different languages and currencies, helping both advertisers and publishers increase their global presence. Separate "promotional" and "marketplace" products from main feeds. Create feeds for a subset of products associated with a promotion, season, sale or holiday-themed offer. Create customized groupings, such as those containing high margin products or inventory intended for liquidation.
