Bitdefender Achieves Rapid Affiliate Sales Growth With Avangate

Avangate, the agile eCommerce service provider trusted by thousands of software and SaaS companies to grow their businesses worldwide through any channel and any model, today announced that Bitdefender, the award-winning provider of innovative antivirus solutions, has nearly doubled its Affiliate Program revenues through the Avangate Affiliate Network Program.

Bitdefender currently employs Avangate’s SkyCommerce solution, utilizing its eCommerce, affiliate and partner management modules, to support the marketing and sales of on-premise and Cloud security solutions across global markets to companies and consumers. By increasing its focus on Avangate’s Affiliate Network and employing Avangate managed services, Bitdefender saw remarkable results to its bottom line: a 95 percent increase in affiliate-generated revenue within 6 months as well as improved product awareness through a 46 percent lift in the number of clicks generated by affiliates.

“With the online marketplace becoming more and more competitive, especially for the security industry, sharpening our affiliate channel to not only broaden its reach, but also boost its efficiency, was pivotal to increasing revenues. Our work with Avangate on this initiative has proven to be a remarkable success, helping us streamline our affiliate campaigns as well getting Bitdefender in front of the right power affiliates,” said Marius Motohon, Bitdefender Affiliate Manager.

“Affiliate networks require day-to-day management and support in order to be successful. The Avangate Affiliate Network team guides vendors from setup to promotional programs, working one-on-one to develop effective tactics for engaging with the right partners to grow affiliate sales, improve worldwide reach, and increase speed to market. Our results for customers are strong, as in the case of Bitdefender, from a revenue and awareness perspective,” commented Michael Ni, Avangate’s CMO and SVP of Marketing and Products.

Given recent changes in buyer behavior and the blending of online sales and marketing, affiliate-style marketing channels have solidified their role in the complex software sales ecosystem. The Avangate-Bitdefender success story is a validation of this market trend and proof that the effectiveness of the affiliate channel can be increased further with the right tools, counseling, and guidance.

The Avangate Affiliates Network, recently featured in the Blue Book Top 20 Affiliate Networks, is one of the largest software and SaaS vertical affiliate networks globally, currently comprising more than 35,000 affiliates.

Avangate's SkyCommerce platform was recognized by the Software & Information Industry Association, CODiE Awards as one of the “Best Electronic Commerce Solutions” and was named a Deloitte “Technology Fast50” company among other global accolades.
