About Beacons ‑ Social Selling

Beacons is a new kind of affiliate marketing solution for your store that allows influencers and content creators — anyone, really — to evangelize your products.

How does it work?

Unlike traditional affiliate models, Beacons doesn't use tracking links or coupon codes.

Beacons enables full attribution accuracy for all affiliate sales. With more accurate attribution, you'll know exactly how you are getting your customers. This will let you focus your marketing spend to increase revenue from new and existing customers.

For content creators who have Beacons websites, they'll be able to embed your products into their websites where they can drive traffic from social media. The affiliate will earn a commission on every sale — everyone wins!

Why do merchants love it?

Working with influencers and content creators usually means a lot of manual work, browsing Instagram and updating numbers in a spreadsheet — we automatically track followers and engagement and put everything you need in a convenient dashboard, saving you hours of time.

By connecting your Instagram, we can instantly find all the creators that have tagged your brand. We also streamline your existing influencer workflows by automating tedious processes — for example, by automatically creating orders with discounts applied for sending product samples. Again, saving hours of work.

Unlike paid advertising, where you pay Google or Facebook up front to find customers for you with no guarantee of making back your marketing dollars — much less making a return — in the affiliate model, you only pay when sales are made, with Return on Ad Spends (ROAS) much higher than typically achievable in paid channels.

In addition, affiliate marketing is basically a digital and more scalable version of word-of-mouth, which generally leads to more loyal customers and higher lifetime values. Let your best customers find more people like them!

We only make money when you make money

To keep our interests aligned, Beacons is completely free for merchants to use, with no monthly fee. You only pay us when we help you generate revenue — the only way we succeed is together.

Support and feedback

The Beacons app was built completely in-house, so we can answer any question that you have about how the app works. We're always looking to improve, so don't be shy about reaching out over chat or email — your feedback will guide our product decisions!

I wanted to find a way to drive trafic to my store by not running Facebook or Google Ads. I had heard that partnering with influencers was a lucrative marketing method and wanted to give it a try. I found this app and liked how it recommended influencers in your space and their stats (followers.. engagement rate..), so it made the researching the right influencers to get in contact with easier. You can tell the app is pretty new, but I've seen new features and updates to the app added almost daily.

This is probably the best app for doing influencer marketing for 5 solid reasons: 1) followers can easily purchase the product within clicks from their favorite influencer, 2) the UI is easy and makes getting set up/connecting with influencers super fast, 3) offers insights into the influencers you work with, 4) you only need to pay per transaction made (so no more monthly subscription costs!!!), 5) getting connected with influencers relevant to your business is all FREE! I honestly don't know any other app that currently does all this right now.
What makes this whole experience even better is the customer service. They're always ready to help. They've already made significant improvements to the app in the time since I installed it. Definitely give this app a try.
