VENNDY provides affiliate marketing monetization tools for digital content publishers.
We believe that publishers (bloggers, influencers, social media mavens) should be compensated for their creative content when helping others make better, easier, and more personalized choices. In a hyper connected world truth is the best marketing strategy for building trust. Trust leads to strong relationships, which increase engagements, which, in turn, improve conversion and help you monetize your content. And of the many monetization methods used by digital publishers, affiliate marketing is the one that most encourages dependable relationships. It is around this concept that we built VENNDY with tools to help you easily share your valuable experiences with your followers and help them easily access and save all your recommendations. Building these connections online takes time and effort, but once established, you can enjoy monetizing your creative content as you become a trusted maven, or expert, in your field.
For example, by turning your Instagram into clickable links, you not only introduce yourself better, but you also provide greater value to your followers by improving the way they can discover new businesses and products online. Same goes for Pinterest; it is not just about pinning endless products with affiliate links but rather about telling a story by sharing a full experience. The clickable links break your story down into shoppable items. This way you provide your followers with greater value by improving the way they discover new products and businesses online.
Our purpose is to help you:
Diversification is key in affiliate marketing, and with VENNDY you can diversify your affiliate networks, your publishing channels, and your revenue sources. You curate your content once, add your affiliate link once, link it to a few different experiences you have collated, and share it across any platform you choose. You thus increase your social reach, grow your influence, and boost your potential income all at the same time.
You can start using VENNDY by following these 3 simple steps:
VENNDY is perfect for digital entrepreneurs, influencers, bloggers, and content publishers who want to: 1) BE different and 2) MAKE a difference in people’s lives.
With VENNDY you can multiply your income potential and build your audience while doing what you love. And you can do it when you want and where you want.
Once registered, you can start uploading recommended Items (with or without affiliate links), collate them into Stories to match a blog or Instagram post, or a collection of Items to be shared on other social media. This way you build your go-to VENNDY store, with a collection of your favorite and recommended products, experiences, tips, reviews and advice.
VENNDY’s tools offer you a simple, fast, and effective way to collect all lifestyle experiences in one place. The LinkCollector collects items (products, places, blog posts, articles, and services). Rating the product and adding your notes helps you build trust by offering useful tips and reviews and, when you’re ready, you can add affiliate links to promote your stories on your blog, website, and social media sites.
Turn your tips, views, and reviews into Stories which connect everything. A Story is a collection of items which describes a complete experience: where you went, what you wore, what you did, how you felt – in short, whatever you want to tell your audience about. You can add a blog post, an Instagram post, shoppable products, and non-shop-related items. No matter where you share your content, with VENNDY both your everyday and your special adventures can quickly be converted into clickable links that help your audience either buy a product you recommend or save something to their wish lists. Help others by collating useful information in your stories and sharing your tips and finds across many verticals. By using your original creative content, you can help improve the way consumers discover new products and businesses online.
VENNDY’s tools allow you to work more efficiently and effectively as you grow your influence and reputation online. You’ll help your tribe find valuable and useful products and services and, at the same time, generate more commissions. What could be better than that?
Anything that is lifestyle related and fits the pre-defined categories. Lifestyle is defined as the way of living on a day-to-day basis which is expressed in both work and leisure behavior and patterns. It can include activities, interests, opinions, values, and allocation of income. Think of it as a cheat sheet summing up all your commerce related and non-commerce content that can bring value to your readers.
Well, it really depends on your preferences. We only suggest that you consider the distinction between:
A combination of the two probably makes the best impression.
If you are new to VENNDY, take a few moments to go through the process of getting started and getting to know VENNDY's tools.
You can use VENNDY’s content and share on social media without being registered. However, in order to benefit from VENNDY’s features (i.e., to save Items and Stories, to interact with other users etc.) and its personalized recommendations tools, Let’s VENN feature, and other connectivity elements, you need to sign up and interact.
To start using VENNDY, register by using the sign-up button. You can with your email and a password. This will allow you to decide who to follow and what to like, to add items to your wish list, to vote on the style chart and to comments on Items and Stories.
In order to upload items, start by downloading VENNDY's Extension, currently built for the Chrome browser, from the Google Store. The Extension will allow you to easily collect any content from the web and give it your own interpretation.
Once downloaded, a VENN-It browser button (marked by NN) will appear on your Chrome. Click on it to login on initial use. Use the same email and password as used when registering on the VENNDY site.
To upload text content, check the box next to the Selected Content title on the Extension window.
Go to any website on the web, highlight the text you want to use when posting your new item, and click the VENN button that will show up next to the highlighted text. This should help you add a description of a product, highlight a sentence from an article, or gather any reviews you have written on an online retailer's website or a social network and put them all under the same roof – in your own VENNDY collection.
If there is no text you wish to copy to the site, simply click the NN button. The NN button turns on the extension which then automatically appears in a pop-up window with a suggested TITLE and IMAGE from the page you're browsing. You can change the title, choose one of the suggested images, select a category and subcategory, and rate the product or service you are uploading. You can then write some text of your own (a recommendation, a reminder, your thoughts). VENNDY is perfect for addressing personal content and commerce-based topics; anything that falls into one of the pre-defined categories. By clicking the VENN button you send your experience straight to your VENNDY where it can now go on to inspire other VENNRs.
The VENNRs you follow impact your personalized feed. Once signed in, you can choose to view the FEED/EXPLORE/VENNRS screens; otherwise only the Explore option will show on your Home Page.
You can increase your contribution by uploading content, but you can also have a greater degree of influence on your web experience and what you see by using the Interaction Features: designating Loves, voting in the Style Chart, adding items to your Wish List, commenting on Stories and Items, and sharing on other social media.
Our purpose is to provide a user-controlled web experience. We want you to be the one in charge of what you share to enable you to get better personalized recommendations. We have chosen to create transparent communication so that we all get to know you better, according to what you choose to share and not your other online activities.
Please note that for now the information you share on My VENNDY is all public. That includes your Stories, Items, followers, Loves and the VENNRs you are following (this is your public information). However, your Wish List, Style Chart, Archive, and Settings are all private and accessible only to you (this is your private area).
We would like to state that the information you share on your VENNDY will be used only for its initial purpose, namely, to place the power of influence in the hands of the users. It is you who determines by the content that you upload which links will forward information to other VENNRs and to which sites.
Since we are bootstrapping the company, we will soon be looking for ways to make money; otherwise we will not be able to sustain a viable business, serve you better, improve our product, or adhere to any requests, suggestions, or needs that arise. We plan to use the links created by users to drive traffic to other sites. We will not, however, be selling your information.
As much as we welcome the advantages of technology for evaluating big data and producing important valuable outcomes, we do not appreciate the fact that technology interferes with privacy or that users’ information is exploited by other parties. This is why VENNDY is about letting you choose what you share. By using the Interaction Features embedded in the platform, we will do our best to help users get the best relevant information from other VENNRs.
Without the LinkCollector you will not be able to collect your tips and recommendations, add your affiliate links, and share across all platforms.
You will miss the opportunity to connect with targeted audiences and share your inspiring stories.
