Ad networks could give you access to a high volume of traffic, with low acquisition costs. Recommended for more experienced marketers, ad networks allow you to attract targeted, relevant traffic with a higher propensity to click-through to your site.

If you don’t have a particularly large budget, ad networks can provide 'unlimited traffic' at a low cost-per-click (CPC). Although, your cost-per-acquisition (CPA) could be high as traffic can be low converting. That said, well optimised campaigns can be extremely profitable, so experienced partners should give it a try!

There’s lots of debate around automating your social media accounts, as it can be a tricky to get the balance right. Here’s a selection of our best practice tips for partners considering using this as part of their social media strategy.

To get started, use social media site analytics to determine followers' behaviours, such as their most active days and times. Identifying peak times will help you to schedule posts so that you achieve the reach the maximum possible number of people in your audience. Automating tweets in advance also enables you to sit back and relax, knowing your presence is taken care of regardless of any other demands on your time!

Many partners find automation tools to be a real-time saver and a great way to recycle content, especially using features like bulk scheduling. While some social media tools will offer to grow followers on your behalf; we recommend you avoid overly aggressive following tactics to avoid breaking any platform specific rules.
