When starting out as an affiliate here at Quiddi, one of the first things you will need to decide upon is the way in which you hope to market your business to consumers.
If you will be contacting them directly, then one of the most effective ways to do this is to use the method of email marketing. Before you do this though, you need to make sure that you have permission from the person in question that you are sending an email to, to contact them.
To make sure you are following the rules regarding email marketing, you must always remember to stick to the following;
Always give the person an option within the email sent or within the original terms and conditions set out on your site, to be able to “opt out” of any future contact or marketing materials being sent to them. You may wish to do this by using an unsubscribe link within your post (make sure it is obviously placed).
It is also a good idea to ensure that before sending out any promotional emails to borrowers, that any individuals who have already expressed their desire to be taken off any direct mailing lists, have indeed had their names removed from these. A quick and easy way to ensure this is to use the Email Preference Service.
What you need to include
There are a number of simple facts that you need to include in your correspondence in order to make sure that not only are you being compliant but that you are giving the borrower all the information they need to be able to follow up with an enquiry or for them to really become engaged with what it is that you are offering them.
In this case it is important to let them know who you are, the fact that you are trying to sell them something and for you to also include the promotions/products you have available to them (including any relevant terms and conditions).
If you stick to these guidelines then not only will you be undertaking a marketing campaign that is legally compliant, but it will also be one where you stand a much better chance of succeeding.
Maximising Your Online Marketing Campaign
No matter how successful your business as a Payday Loan affiliate with Quiddi is, there are nearly always going to be ways in which the campaign you are running can still be improved upon. This needn’t be a costly or even timely process for you to undertake – indeed it may just mean you implementing a few simple steps in order to get the most out of the online marketing you already have in place.
Take for example, the tag line used within an email campaign – does it really grab the attention of your desired demographic? Will the people that you are aiming your service at, really be interested in what you have to say just from reading those few words contained in the title of the email? If not – perhaps you need to think more about the way you are saying it – do you need to be more direct? Is the language you are using too difficult/advanced for your target audience? All of these points are things you need to consider.
It may seem obvious, but the more unique your site is/the more effort you put into being inventive as far as the way you reach out to customers is concerned – the more likely it is that potential customers will respond. For instance, if you decide to include extra information regards the service you are offering/industry you are involved within or if you go to the effort of creating a unique design – there is always a good chance that people will respond to this.
Finally, don’t underestimate the power of social media. You may want to, for example, include links within your emails detailing where to find your Twitter account or Facebook page, so that you can interact with your target audience directly – allowing them to ‘like’ your services or question you directly over what it is they are looking to find out about what you’re offering.
It is by taking the short amount of time it needs to make these changes, that you may find a significant impact is made in reaching potential customers, allowing you to expand your client base.

Recent figures show a 50% increase in the number of young adults planning to take out a payday loan. Previous statistics show that around 3.5m of this demographic had considered a payday loan, while the amount today is nearer the 5m mark.
So can the payday loan now be considered the new norm when looking for credit? Let’s see how it compares to the more traditional forms of finance available.
Up to one-third of eligible consumers in the UK have used a bank overdraft in the last 12-months. Many overdrafts available on the high street charge consumers if they go into their overdraft, some of them daily. And if the overdraft limit is exceeded, even for a short time, further charges are applied.
There are approximately 67 million credit cards in circulation throughout the UK, with many borrowers holding more than one. Lots of providers encourage people to repay only a minimal amount off the debt every month making them expensive when compared to a payday loan over a very short-term. And taking cash out from the ATM is even more costly.
Also, the majority of personal loans are taken out to pay off existing debts, which are often built up again, pushing the borrower into a spiral of further debt.
Payday loans don’t do any of this. They’re specifically designed to paid off within a very short time period. The beauty of them is that the cash can be in your bank account almost instantly and because it’s a loan advance, you can’t exceed the credit limit and incur further charges.
So perhaps it’s time that payday loans were viewed as a real alternative to mainstream credit streams. As R3 – a non-profit organisation aimed at helping individuals with debt problems – Council Member Louise Brittain recently stated “If used in the right way, to fill a genuine one off gap in finances, a payday loan does have a place.”
UK Credit levels now stand at a staggering £3.5bn
According to Marketing and consulting firm Apex Insight, the UK credit market is now worth an eye-watering £3.5bn, a figure that has doubled since 2008’s credit crunch. The company’s new report also states that the lending picture has changed in the last four years as companies have had to find innovative new products that give consumers exactly what they need.
Among these new products are payday loans. There’s been an explosion of companies offering short-term, quick-fix loans to consumers who may not be able to borrow through conventional means. Apex Insight is quick to praise payday loans for helping these customers avoid unlicensed loan sharks and other dangerous money lenders.
At Quiddi we’d like to endorse this refreshingly positive endorsement of payday loans. As the UK’s most reputable payday loan affiliate brokers, we’ve seen a rise in the number of consumers seeking payday as an alternative means of credit. Managed properly, a payday loan is a great way to manage between pay days. Often, it’s the only way many people can survive - a fact supported by Apex Insight Director Frank Proud’s statement, saying “We have seen a big increase in the number of customers under financial stress, and a retreat by the mainstream banks from serving these customers.”
Maybe the tide is finally turning in favour of payday loans. The industry is becoming ever more tightly regulated as affiliates, lenders and consumers are faced with more choice.

Instant payday loans and cash advances have never been easier or faster to get, especially with the development of mobile optimised payday loan sites. Payday loan affiliates, it’s time to get mobile optimised!
Mobile Payday Loans
The whole payday loan process can now be done whilst on the move, from searching for the best payday loan, completing the payday loan application to then see the money hit your bank account.
For the millions of people who apply for payday loans the main reason for doing so is for the need of instant cash. It is important, for payday loan affiliates, that their strategy includes mobile optimised techniques.
Mobile optimised payday loan websites make it incredibly easy to navigate and forms easy to complete so the customer can apply for a payday loan whilst on the move. If you include a mobile marketing technique you are undoubtedly going to succeed as a payday loan affiliate.
Demographic of UK smartphone owners vs. payday loan consumers:
|Payday Loan Applicants
[Age demographic of smartphone owners: Statistics taken from comScore MobiLens, 3mon.avg. Dec-2011, U.S. and EU5] [Smartphone Owners: 7.6% of owners aged 13-17; however, payday loans are only available for individuals aged 18+ therefore this statistic has been omitted]
[Age demographic of payday lending customers taken from The Office of Fair Trading’s Annexe C: Supplementary analysis from the OFT’s consumer study and other sources of data (June 2010)]
The demographics shown on the chart illustrate the strong correlation between smartphone users and payday lending customers. The age demographics clearly show that the age brackets for smartphone owners and payday-lending customers correlate to provide a key customer base for payday lenders and payday loan affiliates.
It also shows that smartphone marketing needs to be optimized for the payday loan industry. Payday loan affiliates need to ensure that their payday loan site is fully operable on smartphones as it is more than likely that this is how your customers will be applying for your loans.
The Mobile Payday Loan Process
According to AT Kearney’s study on “The Internet Economy in the United Kingdom”, ‘traffic on mobile networks is growing by 84% year over year and is expected to account for 11% of total traffic by 2015’. This shows that an increasing number of people in the UK are using their smartphones as a means to browse the Internet.
Payday loan affiliates need to ensure that their payday loan site is highly ranked on Google through a watertight SEO strategy. If people are browsing on their smartphones they are doing this due to speed and convenience and will therefore not trawl through page after page.
Once their site has got through the search process it is important to ensure your site is mobile friendly/mobile-optimized so that the customer can easily navigate through your site, and of course complete the payday loan application form with ease so that they convert to a sale.
Once the customer has submitted the payday loan application form they can see in real-time when the money is deposited into their banks through mobile banking facilities which then be used to pay off the debt/bill that the loan was intended for, and then used again to pay back the loan.
Payday loan affiliates, are you mobile-ready? If not then you are missing a trick!
