The Monthly Digest: Issue 1
In Affiliate Window’s first installment of The Monthly Digest, we roundup one of the most relevant and interesting industry articles published in the last 30 days. Keep up to date with trending topics being debated within performance marketing by reading our top five recommended posts each month.
Publisher Spotlight: Prosperent
Prosperent builds the tools and provides the data necessary for publishers to make more money on their traffic. Founded in 2009, the company is one of the fastest growing performance advertising networks, serving up millions of ad impressions per day.
Dial M for mobile
One of the hottest mobile commerce topics at the 2013 Internet Retailer Conference & Exhibition last month was responsive web design. That's the technique that enables a retailer to use one set of web content and one code base to render a single site differently to match any device's screen size and shape. It's the alternative to building an m-commerce site for smartphones and a tablet-optimized site, in addition to a conventional site for consumers using personal computers.
TheHub: Our Essential Publisher Portal
If you’re not familiar with TheHub, our publisher portal, we encourage you to check it out and bookmark it today! TheHub is another great way for our publishers and advertisers to communicate with transparency, keeping our publishers up to date on Affiliate Window program launches, updates and promotions! Our advertisers and account managers actively keep TheHub current with everything you’ll need to know to run a successful affiliate campaign!
Program of the Month Opportunity on TheHub
Any advertiser with a strong publisher offer or incentive that is valid for at least a month is eligible to request the Program of the Month section on TheHub homepage. If interested, please get in touch. If you are a publisher, don’t miss this month’s merchant feature.
Publisher Spotlight: Kiosked
We are excited to partner with Kiosked who enables advertisers and publishers to create contextual storefronts out of visual content (images, videos & applications), enhancing the overall shopping experience.
Mobile Ticketing in the Performance Channel
Mobile commerce has experienced incredible growth over the past few years. As a network we are now seeing a staggering one in every five clicks originating from a mobile device. With consumers regularly turning to mobile in order to access the internet, there have been significant opportunities to capitalize on the growth trend.
The Affiliate Window payment system
Now US publishers working with UK advertisers can be paid via direct deposit. The Affiliate Window payment system now accepts a US publisher’s bank routing number and account number, enabling ACH payment. The new functionality enables publishers to be paid quickly for their UK advertiser sales without having to find a bank that accepts international wire transfers, or pay the fees frequently charged by banks for that service. Since Affiliate Window has hundreds of UK advertisers that ship to the US, this is a huge opportunity for US publishers to add new advertisers to their websites without payment concerns or delays.
Legislative Update – July 2013
Amazon and Overstock.com combined forces by filing an application to petition to be heard before the US Supreme Court on the Affiliate Tax issue. This includes hiring powerful attorney Ted Olson, who recently won the legalization of gay marriage in front of the Supreme Court. This has delayed consideration of the Marketplace Fairness Act in the House indefinitely. Meanwhile, additional media sources are concerned about the bill’s impact on smaller businesses.
Tax collection began July 1 in Minnesota, but Amazon had already severed ties with all publishers in that state. Though tax legislation passed in Ohio, Gov. John Kasich vetoed it. The tax will go into effect in Missouri on August 28th. Although the Governor had vetoed the original legislation, the language was attached to a larger bill which included a variety of unrelated items, and passed without hearing or debate.
