How BBG increased the number of tracked conversions by 20%

Multi brand e-commerce • Germany and Europe • • •

The challenge

The Berlin Brands Group (BBG) is an internationally operating e-commerce company in the direct-to-consumer sector that unites a couple of  own brands such as Klarstein, Auna, Electronic-star and Blumfeldt from the home & living, consumer electronics, sound & light and sports sectors under one roof. 

BBG works with Dognet, an affiliate marketing partner, to get more people to visit their website. It's important to keep track of this affiliate traffic so that BBG can pay the promoters of their brand fairly.

Before using the SGTM Dognet template, BBG had problems, especially with tracking affiliate traffic effectively. This was because we couldn't see Dognet conversions when users didn't agree to cookies. As a result, some conversions couldn't be recognized as coming from Dognet affiliate partners.

The approach

The SGTM Dognet custom template has significantly improved BBG's affiliate marketing approach, offering a versatile framework that seamlessly operates in various modes. Its streamlined integration process eliminates the need for extra frontend code, resulting in faster and lighter frontend operations. With unified configuration settings and potential overrides by front-end Google Tag Managers, the template provides flexibility and efficient management. The stealthy operation ensures a seamless user experience, securely storing Affiliate Visitor Ids in a Firestore database, free from Dognet-exclusive cookies, bolstering privacy and security with personally identifiable information (PII) structures.

The results
