Vancouver Affiliate Meet Up

This will be my third trip to Canada and the 4th Annual Networking Dinner is on at the same time again, great timing there Ian. It’s strange to think that for first few years working in affiliate marketing I met no one from the business, not one. And then when I attended the Vancouver Networking Dinner for the first time it was stunning to find some many people in one location speaking about the affiliate business, from all kinds of backgrounds too! This years event looks like being the biggest yet and we’ll have theWestern Union team as our guests too. Brian from Read More…

Baghaus Launched on ShareaSale

Launched just last Thursday on the ShareaSale Network, - AMWSO’s newest partnership with designer inspired handbag retailer, Bagahus.com. We’re all very excited to be working with Baghaus, as the owner Jason has an excellent grasp on what affiliate marketing is, and is always open to recommendations. A fine demonstration of this followed a thread started by an affiliate over at ABestWeb regards potential leakages from the site.

Affiliate Marketing, the only equal opportunities employer

It occurred to me the other day that affiliate marketing offers the opportunity to make money to everyone who wants to try. Yes you’ve heard that before, but think of it like this. In the offline world, when a person walks in for an interview for a sales job (or any job) , the person doing the interview already has an idea of the kind of person they want to hire, based on their own preconceptions or prejudice , or based on the target market they are looking to sell to. Regardless of qualification a person can fail to get the Read More…

Top Affiliate Programs for December 2006

The results of the Christmas sales are in and from the below data we can see that there were no great surprises from the top programs. Except perhaps GT Media which usually has an average Christmas and then powers up in Q1 as fitness and diet sales kick in. The GT Xpress was the big seller there. As I mentioned above fitness and diet will be the big focus over the next two to three months, so we expect to see Gaiam, Waterfront Media and GT Media dominate the top places, especially GT Media with a brand new Billy Blanks fitness program Read More…
