The Awin Group Story
Awin emerged in 2017 when consolidating zanox and Affiliate Window operations, both of which had been driving sales for affiliate partners since 2000. zanox grew from a Berlin, Germany, tech startup while Affiliate Window started as a small operation in London, UK. Throughout their histories, zanox and Affiliate Window were repeatedly awarded for innovative affiliate marketing solutions and exceptional service.
In 2017, Awin acquired one of North America’s largest platforms, ShareASale. ShareASale has been a pure-play affiliate marketing network, successfully growing its business by nurturing relationships, building cutting-edge technology and guiding clients to success in affiliate marketing since 2000. As a leading network in the US, ShareASale is known as a fair and ethical business partner with a goal of supporting performance-based partnerships.
With over 20 years of affiliate marketing experience for both Awin and ShareASale, our trusted platforms offer a global community of people, technology and business intelligence insights. No matter what type of partner, level of service, or tools your business needs, the Awin Group provides solutions to drive sustainable growth.
Part of the Axel Springer and United Internet Groups, with Commission Factory, Awin and ShareASale are powered by 15 offices worldwide, over 1,000 employees, 211,000 contributing publishers and 15,200 advertisers. Connecting businesses with customers around the world across the retail, telecommunications, travel and finance verticals, the Awin Group generated $12.4 billion in revenue for its advertisers and $915 million for its publishers globally in the last financial year.
"Awin is driven by a relentless desire to connect advertisers and publishers together for mutual success. We are privileged to work with many of the world’s most recognised brands and our publisher network is rich with opportunity. The pure CPA model that underpins affiliate marketing continues to grow in popularity as the modern advertiser demands greater levels of clarity and certainty on their ad spend. Our desire to push forward the boundaries of technology and innovation alongside our experience, duty of care and strategic insight form the foundation of our company. Expanding this approach across the globe ensures the security our clients expect and the growth and reach they seek, are never compromised."
