A definitive discussion on Consumer Focused Marketing PT 2
AwinTalks recently sat down with Victor Dahlborg: Co-founder of refunder to discuss consumer focused marketing. Victor is uniquely qualified to talk about this topic, as his background and current practices will illustrate. Affilate marketing is, in many ways leading the way in development of tools and methodologies to help serve the complex needs of online shoppers. Often times it takes a shock for us to realize business principles that should have long been right in front of our noses. The reciprocal value of consumer focused marketing and a consumer value driven approach seems to be the great takeaway from years of Amazon devouring the ecommerce world. In many ways, the affiliate industry has long been a viable channel for the acquisition of satisfied traffic. Of traffic, that represents a consumer already receiving value from the publisher funnel.

A definitive discussion on Consumer Focused Marketing PT 1
Victor Dahlborg is the Co-founder of Refunder. Today Refunder is Swedens largest cashback site – or – as they describe themselves, a Social shopping site. Victor Dahlborg "I would characterize myself as an entrepreneur, but I have a previous background as Global Brand/Marketing Director for companies like PriceRunner and MTG and Telefonica. Some people might also know that I was the founder of the certification Trygg E-handel, that guides consumers in Sweden and Norway to retailers who actually fulfill higher demands than what the law requires. I also co-founded the car buying guide FACIT.com that helps people who really doesn’t care about the logo on the hood, but wants to find a car that matches their needs and price. And that is a really interesting industry. I would say that the car industry is probably the last disruptive industry after the travel and music industry. It really needs to go through a big change in order to meet the new buying behavior we see in so many other industries. Something that not so many people know is that I was working with a team to build the first – and actually a better version - of todays AirBnB. The problem was that it was launched only 2 weeks before the dot.com crash (in April 2000) J. And the conclusion of that…… its all about Timing."

The not so popular truth about traffic type values.
In this episode of AwinTalks, I had the opportunity to chat with one of the Nordic affiliate industry´s most long standing experts. Mats, a former network Head of tech created Kickback in 2009. KickBack is now one of the largest affiliate publishers in the entire Nordics, is a part of Schibsted Media Group and now operates within the verticals of CashBack, Voucher and editorial content. Some of the questions asked in this interview at times push the comfort zones of both myself and my guest as we explored the value of big media house investments in the affiliate industry and the relevance of influencer agencies. As always I want to carve out some space for my own opinion. I believe in accountable traffic. As is it the case that Affiliate traffic is generally the most accountable of all digitally driven, at times I find it difficult not to deride any affiliate players making claims of value that are not verifiably trackable. This is basically where I land with regard to some agencies. Advertisers and influencers should tread carefully when it comes to evaluating returns from such partners. Unclear value return creates a surefire scaling gamble. This is not a blanket statement about influencer agencies. This is a statements about those who operate as outlined only. Affiliate marketing by design shields advertisers from making such gambles through its performance based commission model. It may be simple and it may not be laced with buzz words but, it’s accurate and scalable. Mats also focuses heavily on the need for greater education in the digital marketing field. He advocates for education through relationship building and a focus on transparent business practices.
