It can be a challenge when it comes to defining incrementality is and what it means to your business. For some marketers, incrementality means net new customers, for others, it is purely an uplift in sales, and for others, it is repeat purchases and lifetime value. No matter your interpretation of it, one of the most common things I hear when it comes to incrementality within the partner/affiliate channel is “we would have driven that sale anyway.”

The entire digital marketing industry seems to be talking about the WWDC announcement stating that later this year, apps will need to ask the user’s permission to track them or access a device’s Identifier for Advertisers, or IDFA.
From the Apple Developer site:
With iOS 14, iPadOS 14, and tvOS 14, you will need to receive the user’s permission through the AppTrackingTransparency framework to track them or access their device’s advertising identifier. Tracking refers to the act of linking user or device data collected from your app with user or device data collected from other companies’ apps, websites, or offline properties for targeted advertising or advertising measurement purposes. Tracking also refers to sharing user or device data with data brokers.
I actually started writing this piece before the current global crisis began. COVID-19 has made me realize even more that silos within an organization are real barriers to better performance. This pandemic has forced us to adapt and put new plans in place to overcome these challenges and work more synergistically. Ultimately, it’s made many teams work more effectively together.
I have been speaking with a lot of our customers about partnerships, to understand how they have found new ways to connect internally to be more successful. Collaborating is important within a team, but it also is important to work well across teams to get the best results.
Our employees are deeply outraged and saddened by the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis. This senseless death, along with the deaths of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and so many others, was rooted in the deep racial biases and inequities ingrained in society, culture and institutions.
In early April, when many parts of the world were long since on lockdown, we began looking at click and conversion activity across the Partnerize platform. As you well know, at that time, much of the travel industry was grounded, physical retail other than essentials was shut down, and the majority of purchases for many retailers shifted to e-commerce. Our intent in looking at the data was to report the trends in not just the partnership industry but also to provide a glimpse into consumer priorities during the pandemic.
Last week we brought 16 of our customers together for our first virtual customer roundtable. One of our key topics was adaptability – a timely topic for every brand or business given the massive changes that COVID-19 has spawned globally. Even the way in which we run roundtables has changed – shifting to an online format instead of an in-person gathering. The second discussion focused on incrementality in the partnerships channel, with attendees eager to provide input and hear from other brands.
