Many of our affiliates will know our company by its former name, Treyn but after talking to our customers, especially people who had not experienced our holidays before, found that our old name lacked the excitement that we should all feel about taking a holiday and for some the name Treyn was confusing. So, we asked people their views about our brand and when we looked at their comments we saw that whilst our tours were as popular as ever our name was not representing us as well as it could. Rail Discoveries is the new name that was chosen by our customers for our customers and we are really excited by their choice – it says so much more about what we do and what a rail holiday is all about.
Not only do we have a brand new shiny name but we have also made improvements to our website, with the most significant change being to the booking journey. This improved booking journey will improve the conversion rate and should hopefully result in more commission for our affiliates.
We also have some excellent early bookings offers running till October which will also help conversion rates. You can find our latest offers here (http://www.raildiscoveries.com/special-offers/current-promotions.aspx).
To celebrate the launch of Rail Discoveries we have three exciting announcements to make that will help you to be reward more!
- 1. Cookie Window extended
We’ve decided to extend the length of our cookie window from the current 30 days to 90 days. We know that for many of our customers the starting point of their research is often on our affiliates websites. Given the length of time taken between initial research and final purchase we feel that some of our affiliates maybe missing out. So this new cookie window duration should help you to be rewarded more.
- 2. You Tube Video reward
We would like to offer our affiliates the chance to earn a little more commission simply by embedding one of our videos on your website. We will pay £10 to our affiliates if they embed our Rail Discoveries video on their website and £5 if they host one or more of our tour videos. To qualify for this payment you will need to send us the url of your website where the video is embed by the 1st of September, if the video is still embedded on that page come the 30th of September we will pay the commission. You can find our videos at https://www.youtube.com/user/RailDiscoveries .
- 3. Competition – Win an IPad Mini
Our final piece of celebratory good news is that in the month of September we will reward the affiliate who delivers the biggest single booking, with a fantastic IPad Mini. So get promoting our new long haul products and win an amazing IPad Mini.
