As Affiliate Marketing Executive, what does your role at Red Letter Days involve?
Predominantly the role is Affiliate Marketing. However, as we are a small company I have been able to get involved with the other parts of online such as PPC, Re-targeting, Prospecting, Group Buying and Product Reviews. Lots to keep me busy!
Tell us about your typical working day, what does it involve?
I don’t think anyone in the Performance Marketing industry can say there is a typical working day. The industry is so fast moving that it makes every working day different – except Monday’s…that’s our reporting day!
How long have you worked in the performance marketing industry? How did you get started in the digital industry?
In June 2010 I started getting involved with the Affiliate Marketing channel at Red Letter Days, moving over full time after the Christmas period that year. So I have now been in the Performance Marketing Industry for the past 4 years.
Tell us a bit about Red Letter Days- what are your unique selling points?
Red Letter Days pioneered the concept of giving unforgettable experiences as gifts back in 1989. Our vouchers are fully flexible and we give more time than anyone else to book. Our gift packs can be personalised with the customers own special message and includes free Personal Accident Insurance for peace of mind. We also have an instant e-Voucher option for those urgent gifts!
What are the 2014 goals at Red Letter Days- how do these fit into the digital marketing mix?
The main goal this year was to align the digital marketing plan, in order to send out a consistent message on all channels. In doing this we have the same messaging being relayed through Onsite promotions, Email, Social, Affiliate Marketing, PPC and SEO, resulting in a stronger brand image.
