Welcome to the first of Affiliate Window’s monthly wrap ups, where we cast the spotlight on the latest conferences, new program launches, product releases and industry news relating to the network.
We are off to a great start and busy on all fronts. Here are the key pieces that have kept the Affiliate Window office busy so far this year:
Affiliate Window Now Accepting USD Credit Card Payment via Visa and MasterCard Credit Card
Our advertisers can now settle their commission invoices by US Visa or MasterCard credit card payment.
Affiliate Summit West 2013
The Affiliate Window team attended the Affiliate Summit West 2013 conference in Las Vegas, NV, which was attended by over 5,000 industry members, resulting in numerous new deals providing greater reach for advertisers and new top advertisers for publishers.
Taking a bite out of the big affiliate apple with PMI:NYC
This March, Affiliate Window will become Titanium Sponsors of the inaugural Performance Marketing Insights expo, taking place in New York City. The agenda will directly complement the delegate base with an advanced-level view at how the market is being shaped not only within the US but also across the globe. We want to meet you so contact the team in advance and arrange a suitable time.
PMI:NYC – An Interview with Geno Prussakov from AM Navigator
We recently caught up with Geno Prussakov, a well-known affiliate marketing evangelist, author, speaker, Founder & Chair of Affiliate Management Days and the CEO & Founder of AM Navigator LLC, to discuss his involvement as media sponsor and speaker at PMI: New York.
Performance Marketing continues to soar in the Travel & Tourism Sectors
The US online travel market has grown exponentially in the last 12-24 months, with the WTCC reporting that it reached $313billion in 2012. We have experienced firsthand the benefits of this growth with a range of new travel and tourism brands joining the network in 2012. Read the full press release on our blog.
We made the 2013 BLUE BOOK Top 20 Networks
Great news! Affiliate Window US was voted in as one of the Top 20 Networks in the mThink/Revenue Performance 2013 BLUE BOOK! Thank you to all those who voted and we look forward to receiving your support again this year.
Integration with Datafeed Aggregator Prosperent & GoldenCan
Affiliate Window publisher datafeeds are now available through datafeed aggregators Prosperent.com and GoldenCan.com; these services enable publishers to monetize text links and offer a full array of each advertiser’s products by adding a single line of code to a publisher’s website.
Advertiser datafeeds are already available through PopShops.com and Sellfire.com.
Affiliate Tax: New regulatory discussions within the US
Several states continue to pursue affiliate internet sales tax through new legislation, with bills introduced in Michigan, West Virginia, and Florida. Most states are primarily interested in the biggest internet retailers, and thus are trying to negotiate directly with Amazon.com; such is the case in Indiana, Connecticut and Massachusetts (beginning November 1, 2013). All details can be found on TheHub. Affiliate Window’s Account Manager, Jeannine Crooks joins the discussion with an Article in The Denver Post entitled Colorado Should Not Enact its Own Internet Sales Tax.
We are hiring!
We are growing and are constantly on the look-out for new talent. We are currently on the hunt for an Account Development Executive to provide day-to-day support and assistance to a number of Affiliate Window clients, including high profile brands and specialty sites.
