    I'll nominate Goldencan. Though I do wish they were a little more aggressive in the pursuit of new clients.

    I'm going to have to say Jason Rubacky at ShareASale. He's been a great help to any affiliate I've referred to him since he joined ShareASale. He's always available by instant message, phone or skype. With his background as an affiliate and later as a great manager, Jason understands the needs of his affiliates and really knows how to connect with them. His knowledge of the features and benefits and even shortcuts in the ShareASale system make him an invaluable tool for affiliates.

    Wasn't Carolyn Tang nominated for best tool last year? SAS has got a lot of good tools.

    That's hilarious.

    I nominate DataFeedR.com - relatively new to the datafeed aggregator list, but a great Wordpress integrated tool.

    The two tools I find most useful - both as an affiliate and for our affiliates - other than the "tool-people" at SAS, are GoldenCAN and PopShops.

    I have to vote for Wordpress too.

    The changes made over the last couple of years, enabling it be more of a CMS, coupled with the ability to place sidebars almost anywhere has increased it's value to me as a publisher tremendously. I can concentrate on content and promotion much more than I used to.
    I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Bud Lite than Kay.

    I don't remember if this was 2008 or 2009 but the GAN self administered ftp data feed subscription tool was a HUGE advancement, if that was not 2009, then CJ's implementation was another HUGE advancement...

    This automation really is opening up the availability of datafeeds. Prior to that only companies who specifically tried (Sierra Trading Post, Buy.com, Overstock.com, Amazon) had datafeeds available to those just starting out. ShareASale has been much more open, but it sounds like setting each new affiliate costs $ so it was not the same as the new open access model.

    Jason definitely!! He taught me about PopShops, lets me know when there are new merchants that are a good match for my niche, and is always willing to help. Not to mention he always answers my questions - regardless of how trivial they are.

    Second vote goes to PopShops.

    The tool doesn't have to be new in 2009. (For instance, WordPress isn't.)
