Semrush has announced that it is shutting down Berush.com, a platform that it has used to run its affiliate program since 2009.
In a notice sent by Semrush today, Berush will be shutdown on January 31, 2023. The discontinuation of Berush program means that affiliate links created on Berush will not be tracked by 31st January.
Semrush affiliate program will continue to operate through Impact.com. Impact radius is one of the most reliable affiliate marketing management platforms. On June 6th, 2022 Bluehost closed its own affiliate program platform and moved to Impact.
The work of managing your own affiliate marketing platform is so complex and time-consuming that many businesses have opted to rely on third-party platforms like Impact Radius that are specialized in the industry.
Why Migrate to Impact?
Semrush says that the benefit of migrating to impact is that marketers will get advanced reporting of their promotions. A commission of $200 once per successful sale, $10 per trial activation, and $ 0.01 per registration will still be retained.
If you have been using Berush, you are required to apply for Semrush affiliate marketing through Impact Radius and then update the affiliate links on your blog.
Commissions earned by January 31, 2023, through Berush will be paid on February 10, 2023. If you would not have provided the correct payment details by February 9th, 2023, your commission will be canceled.
