When you’re ready to launch your e-commerce business, finding the right platform for your online shop is one of the first — and most important — steps you’ll need to take. And one of the most popular options is BigCommerce, which makes it super easy to quickly set up a platform you can use to start selling online. 

Businesses of all sizes can take advantage of BigCommerce, which helps you save time and resources by taking care of things like web hosting that you’d otherwise need to worry about. It also lets you sell your products across multiple channels, and it’s scalable to keep up with the growth of your brand. The Bigcommerce dashboard makes it a snap to see everything going on with your store, as well as how it’s performing. 

But what about BigCommerce affiliate marketing? Is it possible to run your shop while also getting help from affiliates? Yes! 

Sure, you can access some BigCommerce affiliate tracking features, but you can go a step further by implementing LeadDyno. With LeadDyno, you can launch, manage, and track your affiliate program with even greater ease and accuracy. Keep reading to learn more.  

Why BigCommerce?

There are several reasons why BigCommerce has become a top choice of e-commerce business owners and affiliate program owners. Put simply, this is a smart place to go when you want to run an online shop in the simplest way possible, with the fewest headaches.

Whether you’re starting your online shop from scratch or you’re migrating it from a different platform, you can do so rather quickly to save time and avoid frustration. Just about everything you need is built right into this platform, and you can integrate extra tools and apps like LeadDyno. But the benefits of BigCommerce go beyond making it easy to get your store up and running. 

Once you’ve established an online shop, it’s essential to stand out from the competition, and this is yet another area where BigCommerce shines. For example, you can take advantage of features that make it easier to implement your search engine optimization (SEO) strategies for driving more traffic to your website. 

BigCommerce can even help with boosting conversions by giving you access to several helpful built-in tools

For example, customers who leave items in their cart can receive emails to be reminded that they need to finish their purchase. Specific products are easy to find with faceted search, product comparisons help consumers make the right choice when they aren’t sure, and live chat can help anyone who has questions. Using coupons and checking out are also made simple for customers, so they’ll be less likely to abandon their carts. 

The bottom line: When you combine the best features of BigCommerce with the strength of your affiliate program — and the affiliate management capabilities of LeadDyno — you can gain more control over your e-commerce business while also finding it easier to promote and manage it.
