Country overview – Croatia

Country overview – Croatia

Hello our dear affiliates and the ones who are ready to become part of our fast growing network,

I believe you already had a chance to read our posts about GEO’s Zetaniche is covering, or detailed country overview for our Balkan beauty – Serbia, that we have prepared for you before.

As we started series of posts dedicated to countries in which we are operating and offering some of the most popular market’s offers at the moment, we have decided to share with you some more information about Croatia this time.

Continuing in the same good and interesting rhythm, firstly, we would like to provide you with some interesting facts about Croatia. We believe there are a thousand and one reasons to fall in love with Croatia. Right from the rich history of Balkan, sun-kissed coast, wonderful architecture, numerous dreamy island, delicious cuisines and some of the best wines on the planet – Croatia has everything!

Did you know that one of the popular HBO series “Game of Thrones” was filmed in Dubrovnik, on the Croatian coast?

I’m sure you like these series as much as we do, but let’s get back to information that can be useful for you in regards of promotion our numerous Croatian offers.

Basic facts:

  • Croatia is a country situated at the crossroads of Central and Southeast Europe, on the Adriatic Sea, with its capital city Zagreb.
  • Estimated population in 2016 was 4,23 million.
  • Croatian is the official language of Croatia, minority languages are Serbian, Slovakian, Czech, Hungarian and Italian.
  • The Croatian Kuna is the currency of Croatia. The currency code for Kuna is (HRK) and the currency symbol is (Kn).

Internet usage

When it comes to the internet usage in Croatia, from total population of 4,225,001, in 2016. (74.2%) which makes 3,133,485 Croatians were using internet regularly (on average at least once a week) at home, at work or elsewhere.

As we can see a large majority of Croatians used the internet in 2016. It has become important for daily life, education, work and participation in society as it enables people to access information and services at any time from any place.

Studies are showing that almost 90% of Croatian internet users inform themselves about the product or service before purchase and to do that they use different channels. Since here at Zetaniche, we are offering our affiliates various health and beauty products for promotion, we did a small research and it seems that Internet users in Croatia are seeking for health and beauty information online very willingly.

The leading motivation for seeking medical information is “unanswered questions after visiting a doctor”. Patients who feel they were given insufficient information, or simply seek more information than the doctor provided them with, go online for more information, which no longer seems to be reserved to those with the highest education degrees. So, that is why we are recognizing a big potential in promoting health and beauty related offers in this GEO, where affiliates should consider promoting them on health and beauty related internet sites, portals or blogs, providing users information that they are seeking for and offering them products that will solve their problems.

The dominant source of information are still search engines such as Google, used by 61% of respondents. After Google, here are the most visited sites in Croatia:

Product overview: WhatsChat

Product overview: WhatsChat

Online dating is developed into a multi-million industry and it’s not showing signs of slowing down. By the latest researches, this industry is about to grow by around 6% by the end of this year compared to the previous one.

Online dating has been around for more than 20 years and meeting a partner online is not a new concept, but going into mobile and allowing audience multi-platform user experience is something that is definitely going in favor of promoting a digital dating offer. More and more people are changing their traditional social habits and looking online to find love or sex.

Let us present you star among our digital dating products – our premium SMS offer – WhatsChat!

What is WhatsChat?

When it comes to mobile affiliate space, one of the things Zetaniche regularly does is analyzing the market for our digital products. Zetaniche is always trying to keep an eye on the latest market changes, in order to find the best possible ways to make our digital offers work complied with current regulations, but making the highest possible income out of it.

Our premium SMS offer WhatsChat is especially sticking out among all the popular offers we are offering for promotion. WhatsChat is premium SMS offer that is working on SMS billing flow principle, which automatically means that we are not restricting our affiliates and publishers to promote WhatsChat through carrier connection only. With SMS billing flow, our affiliates are able to make conversions on wifi and desktop traffic, as well.

How does WhatsChat work?

WhatsChat is premium SMS offer, where subscription (conversion) is done either through clickable SMS – reply or pin submit. In both cases, user needs to use his mobile operator in order to confirm that he wants subscription and to be charged by his mobile operator for this action. Subscription amount is deducted from user’s balance or added to his mobile phone bill.

These are exact WhatsChat conversion flows:

  • Desktop conversion is pin submit. User sends SMS, gets pin, enters pin on page, if pin is proper, conversion is triggered.
  • Mobile conversion is click2sms, user gets clickable SMS composer, he clicks and after the message was sent, conversion is triggered.

Since conversion flows are via user’s mobile operator, user doesn’t need to use a credit card or other forms of payment which makes WhatsChat conversion process very easy and simple.

Where WhatsChat is available in?

At the moment WhatsChat is available in 17 countries: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, Croatia, Hungary, Lithuania, Latvia, Montenegro, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia and Slovakia, but there are more GEO’s yet to come.

We have been mentioning earlier importance and uniqueness of GEO’s Zetaniche is working with. Since dating niche is very competitive and over-populated for promoting, especially if you are new in affiliate marketing and you are maybe having concerns from where to start, possibility of promoting WhatsChat in low competitive GEO’s can help you to run this very competitive game.

Our low competitive GEO’s are giving affiliates who are working with various traffic sources possibility of working with cheaper traffic with relatively high payouts for mobile content and more possibilities for testing and optimization.

When it comes to direct site owners, since we are working in areas where audience haven’t been exposed to the variety of adult content ads, placing WhatsChat ads directly on your site will certainly be refreshment for your site audience, as something new and very easy to bring their attention to. This is why you won’t regret if you start promoting WhatsChat on your own local site.

What are the payouts?

Current WhatsChat pay-outs per GEO are:

 

Traffic sources, ad methods and landing pages

WhatsChat is working on desktop and mobile traffic both. Our premium SMS offer converts on all types of traffic, carrier and wifi. This means that user can be connected to a wifi over his laptop, tablet, or any other device and conversions will still be triggered, as long as he has mobile phone with him.

This is also very important from the perspective that we are offering our affiliates to monetize traffic that otherwise maybe would have been left unsold.

WhatsChat is adult related offer and our stats are showing that it is performing the best on adult and mature related content, no matter if you are working with various traffic sources, or you are willing to place WhatsChat ads on your own local adult site.

In case you are working with various traffic sources (adult ad networks, etc.), by testing our offer and collecting data, you will get the necessary knowledge where WhatsChat is performing the best and be able to easily optimize your campaign.

On the other hand, if you own adult related site, your advantage is that you already know your audience the best, how they are performing, how they respond on certain ads and what type of ads should be brought to their attention.

Mobile content offers are usually working on various ad methods, but when it comes to WhatsChat, at the moment we are offering promotion through banners and email, and it’s showing the best results.

*After you log into your Zetaniche account, choose and request WhatsChat offer, under the section “Do you want creatives for this offer” you can request creatives for WhatsChat.

When it comes to restrictions, we do not accept incent, push notification, SMS, Chat / IM traffic and there is no cashback.

To help our affiliates monetise their traffic and easier convert WhatsChat, we have built direct sales and pre-sell pages. We always suggest our affiliates to do the split test using direct and pre-sell pages, since as our stats are showing every day, we have seen them both working. Our landing pages are made in local languages for all GEO’s where WhatsChat is available for promotion.

Do we support SmartLink solution for WhatsChat?

Of course we do. Like with the rest of our offers, WhatsChat is not an exception, meaning that our affiliates can send non-targeted traffic for specific geo they have chosen for promotion. This means that they can send either desktop, tablet or mobile traffic and Zetaniche algorithm will detect device and display top performing presell pages for WhatsChat. We also have Smartlink solution where affiliates can send visitors to the best performing direct sales page in case they have more targeted visitors.

What are the advantages of promoting WhatsChat, premium SMS offer?

  • Easy conversion flow,
  • Possibility of monetising all traffic (both wifi and carrier),
  • Low competitive GEO’s and relatively high pay-outs,
  • Audience in GEO’s where WhatsChat is available for promotion haven’t been exposed to these kind of ads so much,
  • All landing pages are translated on local languages,
  • Usage of SmartLink solution.

This is pretty much it. We hope our WhatsChat product overview helped you in understanding huge potential you can experience with promoting our SMS premium offer in our low competitive GEO’s.

Not Zetaniche affiliate yet? Don’t worry – we are always open for new partnerships. JOIN our network today, request your premium SMS offer, select GEO where you want to promote WhatsChat and start earning some money!

How to choose right GEO for promotion?

How to choose right GEO for promotion?

Nowadays, as affiliate marketer, almost every country in the world can be your market, and every citizen of the world can become your potential buyer or lead.

You have probably heard about TIER country breakdown. This term is most commonly used in online marketing industry. Definitive split per countries doesn’t exist and there is no precise rule which can define this split. Split is closely related to payouts, traffic costs, geo market regulations and audience living standard.

In this matter, there are 3 major TIER groups:
Tier 1 countries – these countries have been considered as most competitive ones, with most expensive traffic.
Tier 2 countries – these GEO’s are less competitive and population has lower average income.
Tier 3 countries – these GEO’s have a very little potential in regards of the buying power.

Tier 1 are English speaking countries and some European countries, Tier 2 are considered to be most of the European countries and Tier 3 are rest of the world.

Every country in the world is under certain regulations and internet audience is not exception for regulations, as well. Tier 1 countries are the most regulated, because these countries have been exploited for years and governments have made certain regulations in order to protect their citizens. From the affiliation perspective, these regulations (especially when it comes to carrier billing) are directly influencing on advertising campaign and conversion rate. So even payouts in these countries can go very high, sometimes all this is not worth all that bothering and struggle.

On the other side developing countries that may be included in Tier 2 and 3 have less regulations, traffic is lot cheaper and more possibilities for you as affiliate marketer to run stable campaign with more possibilities for conversion rates.

ZETA countries

Zetaniche is covering: Albania, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Montenegro, Morocco, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and Ukraine.

Zeta countries are mostly considered as Tier 2 countries. Besides lower competition, cheaper traffic, less regulations and easier monetization of mobile traffic that we have already mentioned, very important thing on which we wanted to pay attention in this blog post is the audience habits and buying interest in these GEO’s.

Since it’s not possible that we provide you full information for countries one by one, we will try to give you a few general pointers that will help you understand why these GEO’s may be excellent choice for you.

Europeans are quite active in the internet based market. One in four Europeans with internet access shopped online at least once a week last year, while over 60% shopped online once a month. 6% of Europeans shop online every day.

About 75% percent of the population has already tried online shopping at some point and 46% percent of the population shop online regularly.

When it comes to Portugal, over 46% of 16-54 year-old’s purchased online in the last 12 months and they have spent 4.2 billion euros online last year.

Greece buying power is less advanced than in other EU member states. The main reason, in addition to the prolonged economic crisis. Cash on delivery remains the most popular method of payment. Web-based trade in Cyprus remains relatively small, but is growing.

In Belarus, most people prefer to pay by cash on delivery, as this was chosen by 60% of online users. Far less popular are credit card payments, which has been used by 13% of Belorussian online consumers. Then comes the method is paying via a cell phone, where 0,3% ever used it.

Of those with internet access in Macedonia, 19.3% ordered through the internet in 2016. Facebook advertising is currently the most successful, due to the popularity of Facebook in Macedonia.

In Croatia 47% of online buyers prefer paying with cash-on-delivery and the amount of 65% of online purchases in Croatia is €50 euros or less.

61% of Montenegrins are frequent users of the Internet. Due to the increased consumer awareness and the demand for products, Montenegro should be a choice for promotion as well.

Nearly 60% of Serbians are frequent users of the Internet. Number of online orders in Serbia exceeded 2 million in 2016.

Ordering online through use of a credit card in Bosnia and Herzegovina is not that common. Cash-on-delivery method is the most popular.

In Albania internet shopping is in its early stages, due to the low use of credit cards, low purchasing power, and the high cost of shipping. Facebook is widely used for marketing purposes.

Central Asia and North Africa

Internet use of Kazakhstan has grown quickly over the last year, to 77% of the population in 2016. The most progressive types of purchases are online payments for mobile services and public utilities. Payments for orders over the Internet from Kazakhstan are mostly done by cash-on-delivery or bank transfer and rarely by credit/debit cards.
