Custom Granola, Luxury Watches & Sports Equipment – Ignite OPM Introduces 3 New Affiliate Programs

Ignite OPM continues to make forward strides, and this month is no exception. As Ignite OPM continues to cause a splash in the affiliate marketing world, 3 new clients decided to catch the wave – and rightfully so!

Lauren Pfanmiller, Managing Director of Ignite says, “Although our clients seem to funnel into familiar industries (retail, subscriptions, travel) our non-stop sales force continues to find new, unchartered territories for Ignite OPM to break through – like, custom granola... are you kidding me?! We’ll take it!” Let’s be honest, there’s little to disagree with Lauren on here. Ignite OPM continues to catch brands as they’re at the brink of a break-through, and they really rely on Ignite to not only springboard their affiliate marketing efforts, but focus on the optimization strategies that take their affiliate programs from an upward trend to “why didn’t we do this years ago?!”.

Here’s a closer look at our new partner brands:
