We know from our blogs and our online community conversations that our customers are fans with great love and great loyalty. People who use Aquasana products tend to talk to their friends and family (and sometimes perfect strangers) about how much Aquasana products mean to them and how much our products impact their lives for the better.
As some of you know, we have had an affiliate referral program for some time through which our customers and loyalists speak out and spread the word about Aquasana products. In fact, our program became so large that it outgrew the platform we were running it on! So at the beginning of 2011, we researched and found a new company to host our affiliate program, LinkShare.
The affiliate relationship is basically a channel marketing relationship. Our Publishers (What LinkShare calls affiliates) post links on their websites that go to www.aquassana.com, whether text links, banner images or full-blown product detail pages, and each time someone makes a purchase on Aquasana.com from that link, the Publisher earns a commission*.
There is no cost to join the Publisher program on LinkShare, and if you have a website, adding us is often just a matter of getting the link code from LinkShare and plugging it into your site. Publishers enjoy the ability to participate in site-wide promotions, like the current April 30% off promo, and earn a little something for spreading the word about Aquasana products. Our Publishers range in size from single families who refer their friends and families to substantially sized companies: we welcome all shapes and sizes.
There are several popular Publisher strategies.
The Blogger writes new and fresh content, either reviews or information on water in general or other interesting, semi-related topics, and posts the blogs with links or banners for Aquasana.
Entrepreneurs populate websites with product images and details, like an e-commerce site. (Though this is fine, we do not allow online checkout.)
Coupon Clippers aggregate coupons and coupon banners (from various companies, not just Aquasana), promoting the discounts we offer to our publishers’ customers.
Thank you for all your continued loyalty and support as we spread the word of healthy, clean, delicious water!
*For commissionable items. Not all products are commissionable, and not all items earn the same commission. See LinkShare site for details.
Water filtration pitchers seem like a great idea at first. They are a cheap way to get cleaner, healthier drinking water. While to some extent, this is true, water filtration pitchers not the be-all end-all solution for drinking water quality that you would hope for.
Many water filtration pitchers do not have the same stringent requirements that Aquasana water filters are subject to. Water filtration pitchers are not subject to any of the government regulations imposed upon standard water systems. You can never be sure what you are drinking when using a water filtration pitcher. Another disadvantage of pitchers is their slow filtering speed. It can take nearly half an hour for a full pitcher of water to be completely filtered. Unless you are only filtering water for a small family, this water will quickly run out and you will be forced to drink unfiltered tap water.
Along with the limited supply of filtered water you can produce, using only water fiiltration pitchers means the water you use to cook, clean your clothes, wash your dishes and take showers in will all still be unfiltered, contaminated water. You will not be able to filter drinking water that comes from other sources like from your refrigerator water outlet, at a wet bar, from faucets in the bathrooms or the water that fills your automatic ice maker. So you are not getting very good protection from water contamination for you or for your family using only water filtration pitchers.
An Aquasana water filter can filter water at a faster rate and has a much higher capacity tank. It would take an extremely large group to drink enough water to overpower an Aquasana water filter. One advantage that water filtration pitchers do have is the initial investment. Purchasing a water filtration pitcher will be cheaper than a high quality water filter at first.
The filters in a pitcher will not last nearly as long, however, as those in an Aquasana water filter. You will find yourself constantly changing the filters in the pitcher in order to maintain the taste and purity of the water. In the long run, an Aquasana water filter will save you money on the cost of repeatedly purchasing filters. In the end, it simply makes more sense to purchase an Aquasana water filter instead of a Mavea water filtration pitcher. Over the long run, they will cost less and clean your water better.
