“I worked with ebove & beyond for roughly 2 years prior to moving on from Steiner Sports. We had a few affiliate program managers, both internally and externally, prior to them. What Jen and her team were able to do was quite honestly very impressive and exceeded what I was expecting from them.
Our affiliate program was bringing in 3-4% of our revenue month over month before Jen and ebove took over. When I left in September 2014, they were consistently driving a good deal of our new customer acquisitions and around 25% of our monthly revenues. This was also over a period of substantial growth (60% profitability, 35% overall sales growth during the same span) so it's not as if those numbers are skewed.
They are extremely responsive; they have a fantastic ability to get you placed where you want on premium sites and blogs. Additionally, they aren't really a "junior" company. What I mean by that is they have relationships with the people who make decisions, not just account managers.
They always exceeded my expectations. They had no problem helping us chase down tough goals and always put the time and care into helping us build our brand and revenue. This is why I was confident in bring in ebove & beyond when I moved to Dylan’s Candy Bar. They have been able to produce triple digit growth in our affiliate program here year over year and are extremely ambitious in their program management.”

“We came to ebove & beyond with some tough goals and they far surpassed them. We launched in October and throughout the holiday season they accounted for 11% of our total revenue. The conversion rate from this program is much higher than our average and we also see a strong AOV. A lot of the program's success can be attributed to the team - namely Ann - who is out there pounding the pavement for us every day, bringing on new partners, getting us exclusive placements and negotiating great deals. Jen and Ann are always available to jump on a call to review numbers, brainstorm ideas, and offer advice. I've had a wonderful experience working with them and look forward to seeing what the future holds.”

“Best OPM out there, hands down. I'm a network representative and I've worked with nearly all of the OPMs in the industry. There is NO ONE out there that puts the amount of effort into growing merchant campaigns that ebove & beyond does.”
