Casai curates beautiful apartments that merge the design and comforts of a boutique hotel with the technology of a San Francisco home and the local ambiance of a vacation rental.
Fill in the blank - Affiliate marketing means to me:
New opportunities to grow together. Since we started working with affiliate marketing, we saw an increase in revenue and it has become a key part of our company’s marketing strategy in a short amount of time.
What’s your “elevator pitch” for potential partners or those who are unfamiliar with your company?
Does arriving at a hotel room spark joy and inspiration? What about arriving at a vacation rental, only to lose the WiFi connection mid-Zoom call? Casai eliminates common travel pain points by offering modern apartment rentals in Mexico City, Tulum and Sao Paulo with the consistent service you deserve.
What sets your company and affiliate channel practices apart from others in your niche?
Our openness to creative collaboration with our partners, utilizing both of our strengths to allow both parties to grow and learn from each other's experiences. We also believe in listening to the experts, in this case, Awin. All the proposals and suggestions have been enriching and it shows in our results.
What are the benefits to working with you in the affiliate channel?
Our number one priority is to be a reliable partner, setting our partners up for success. We believe that the affiliates succeeding is our success; we try to adapt our strategies to every affiliate and we definitely have a flexible posture when it comes to new strategies or initiatives proposed by the affiliate.
What makes a great partner in your eyes, and what kind of partners are you looking to work with?
A great partner is one that cares about their customers and readers as much as we do. Partners who reach out either because they are looking for an exclusive promotion or with an idea for a new plan have helped us achieve better results.
In addition to what you consider to be a great partner, how do you measure success of said great partnership?
We measure success mainly by sales but also by clear communication and fresh, creative perspectives. Yes numbers are important, but there are factors that cannot be measured quantitively that provide a higher percentage of success. In this case, having a constant stream of communication or thinking outside the box is something we appreciate and consider as a factor of success.
Do you have any advice for those who are new to affiliate marketing?
Joining an affiliate program requires a lot of time and dedication in order to see the results. Once you begin, make sure you have someone on your team that can be responsible for and eager to take on this task.
What is your favorite part about working with Awin? Do you have a favorite tool or feature?
Our favorite part would have to be the people we work with at Awin. Everyone has been extremely open and helpful since day one. If we ever encounter roadblocks, the team is always ready to help out in the most enriching and detailed ways possible.
What is the future of Casai and Awin?
Since we are growing at a fast pace, we will be releasing even more promotions, partnering with new affiliates and continuing to work with the partners we have to provide the best hospitality experience in Latin America.
