Introducing eBay’s New Global Brand Campaign

global campaign eBay’s brand new global brand campaign, “Shop the World,” launches in Europe on 20th October 2014, showing how moments of inspiration can be instantly shoppable on eBay. The campaign highlights how eBay’s inventory paired with its leading multiscreen capabilities truly means anyone can shop anytime, anywhere.

The "Shop the World" campaign launched initially last week in the United States, and is being rolled out next in Australia, the United Kingdom and in Germany, with other markets to follow in 2015.

Designed to put eBay top-of-mind during the holiday season, this new campaign includes an extensive digital campaign in the UK, banner advertising and video content to inspire consumers. Each advertisement features several distinct moments of inspiration, with the item each shopper is ultimately inspired to purchase found on eBay. Themed collections of shoppable inventory coinciding with these moments of inspiration will also be shared on eBay.com.

By reinforcing eBay’s accessibility and selection, we hope your visitors will be more likely to click through from your site to eBay to make a purchase. You can also attract shoppers by sharing the themed collections that are most relevant to your audience, directing and connecting visitors who have viewed the brand campaign.

Take a peek at one of our example videos here, and let us know what you think!

Christmas Bonuses are here! Earn an extra 30% on UK Programme

Christmas Bonuses2

As Christmas creeps ever closer and festive shopping season enters our minds once again we’re offering a bonus promotion in November and December for publishers participating in the UK programme.

How does the promotion work?

Any partner who opts into the promotion and increases earnings by at least 40% during November and/or December as compared to your earnings in July 2014 will be eligible for the bonus.

The bonus is tiered as follows:

Bonus earned based on earnings increase Earnings increase in November – December 2014 (compared to July 2014)
30% bonus 40% Earnings Increase

 

How will bonuses be calculated?

Bonuses will be calculated per account, separately for both November and December, before being paid together with the rest of your earnings for that month.

 See an example of this calculation below:

Program July Earnings November Earnings Percentage Increase Bonus Percentage November Payment
UK £2,000 £ 3,000 40% 30% £ 3,900

For example, if your November 2014 earnings (in this case £ 3,000) are 40% higher than your July earnings (in this case £ 2,000), you will earn a 30% bonus on your November earnings. The same principle applies for your December earnings.

 Which regions will be eligible for promotion?

The promotion is available to all publishers participating in the UK programme on the standard ePN pricing model.

In order to participate in this bonus promotion, you must opt in by 31st October, by clicking the link below. You will be redirected to a secure form to input the name and email associated with your ePN account.

 Click here to opt in for the bonus promotion.

This promotion is just one of the ways we’re helping our partners during peak shopping season, and we’re excited to be able to offer this bonus opportunity to our valued partners. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us via our Contact form or by emailing ePN-cs-english@ebay.com, and we will be happy to assist you.

June Summer Promotion: Focus on Mobile

ebayMobile Here at ePN we like nothing more than recognising our publisher’s hard work and contributions to the programme. That is why for the whole of June (1st – 30th) we are launching a summer promotion scheme that offers publishers active in the UK program the chance to earn percentage bonuses based on their earnings.

But wait, that’s not all!

We’re offering partners the chance to earn even more depending on which channel your earnings come from. Mobile has seen rapid growth of late and we want to make sure that you are not missing out on its huge potential. That is why we are offering even larger percentage bonuses to earnings stemming from mobile (as opposed to ‘classic earnings’).

So how does it work?

It’s very simple; your bonus will be calculated by comparing this June’s earnings to April 2014. Use the following tables to see the individual bonus brackets.

Mobile/Tablet:
Increase earnings 10% - Bonus of 15% on all mobile earnings
Increase earnings 20% - Bonus of 25% on all mobile earnings
Increase earnings 30% - Bonus of 35% on all mobile earnings
Increase earnings 40% - Bonus of 45% on all mobile earnings

 

Classic/Desktop:
Increase earnings 10% - Bonus of 10% on all classic earnings
Increase earnings 20% - Bonus of 20% on all classic earnings
Increase earnings 30% - Bonus of 30% on all classic earnings

 

So there you have it! Need some tips on boosting those mobile conversions? Make sure you haven’t missed our recent Focus on Mobile and Boost Email Conversions with Mobile blogs!
