Welcome to TheHub

What is TheHub

TheHub Homepage

TheHub is our publisher portal, providing a platform for our advertisers’ updates and promotions, as well as network news, newsletters and an industry calendar. If you have some news or an offer or incentive to promote to publishers, TheHub is the best place to post this information.

Advertiser Access

Advertisers should use their own profile to post to TheHub platform. This profile will give you access to the back office of the site so that you can post programme updates and promotional information.


Registration

If you are new to Affiliate Window or wish to register a new profile, click here and enter the name of the programme you will posting on behalf of, as well as your email address. NB: Once you have done this, contact the communications team to request permission to post to all categories.


How to post to TheHub

Visit this page to log in to TheHub.

Login Screen

Editing a Post

Once you have access to TheHub back office, select the New Post option from the top ribbon.

Dashboard

Add a Title to your post and edit the body of the post, either in the Visual or HTML tab.

Editing Screen

Select all relevant categories for your post.

Remember that you can now choose a Network category, as well as selecting sectors within both update categories and promotion categories. As long as they are correct and relevant, select as many as you like. Programme news, like a launch announcement or permanent change to terms and conditions, should be categorised as an update. All consumer or affiliate offers and incentives should be categorised as a promotion.
