Well, just got back from the Linkshare Awards Dinner – Food was awesome at Cyprianis and the networking was even better – these events are far too much fun to be considered work!
2 AMWSO clients were nominated this year, Forzieri for International Merchant and Gaiam for Innovative Merchant, and unfortunately we only won one of them.So Forzieri is a bridesmaid for the second time – but I get the feeling a future Golden Link is on its way for this excellent merchant and its super AM Patrick Goodfellow.On a brighter note, Gaiam as expected won Innovative Merchant of the Year for the use of affiliate coded text links in video – very cool – and it was a thrill to go up with Bill Moran from Gaiam to accept the award on behalf of Pete and James Nardell (the AMWSO AMs for Gaiam). Nice job indeed guys!
Personally I think the Innovative Merchant Award is one of the best prizes to win – it’s super to be recognized for creativity and ingenuity! Congrats to all the winners, and indeed all who were nominated – see ya all at the Symposium.
