    Greg Hoffman (because gorillas are an endangered species)

    and Chris from AMWSO who always seems to be working quietly, watching our backs.

    (Probably broke the rules here - if it comes to a split vote, take Chris LOL.) (Only because I don't think Greg needs my vote.)

    • Some of the cleanest run programs
    • NO bullsh*t - straight shooters
    • Great communication


    Do I really need to say more?

    Agree with above + some new OPMs not nominated yet in alphabetical order:

    Acceleration Partners - looks like they successfully manage some of the biggest most respectable brands and often convert them into ShareASale users; which imho is great for us all.

    Adam Riemer Marketing - for relentless pursuit of value driven programs and informational posts and best practices for both affiliates and merchants on his blog.

    AIM - Sarah Bundy & Carolyn Tang Kmet FTW! For leadership, advocacy and education. Jewels of our industry (hope they don't mind me saying that

    AMNavigator - Geno's Affiliate Management Days conference is an important one of our industry, his presentations are among the best most valued sessions, also a huge advocate for our industry + consistently educates both affiliates and merchants in most cases free via his blog and the books are worth every penny.

    Voting is now open: Multiple votes are allowed and all votes are private. Poll ends on June 30, 11:59 pm and winners will be announced on July 1. To avoid non-members coming it just to vote for their friends or co-workers, a minimum 25 post count will be required for your vote to count.

    Greg Hoffman was nominated both individually and as part of Greg Hoffman Consulting. With Greg's agreement, only GHC is listed as a nominee.

    I wish I could vote twice. Chris Sanderson has gone 10+ years without ever resorting to any kind of digressive hype or bullkaka; there aren't many AM's/OPM's out there that this can be said for.

    Oooops I'm having attention span issues today

    So two votes it is, then. Or would be, if the software would let me. ("you have already voted in this poll")

    Have you read the terms on their affiliate programs? I'm specifically referring to jumping through hoops which are not affiliate-friendly.

    But good luck to everyone.

    Per requests and in the interests of correctness, the nomination of Liz Gazer-Proudfoot has been moved to this category from "Best Affiliate Manager in 2013".

    Thanks for my nomination as well even though it was originally in the AM category. Either way, always an honour to be recognized in any way however big or small. Kudos to all the nominees!

    Which specific hoops are you referring to?

    Looking at Reebok, Zulily, Tiny Prints they all look pretty straight forward to me. They want to partner with value add affiliate partners who don't really focus on PPC and request them to be straight forward e.g. not practice questionable tactics that are detrimental to merchants, their existing affiliates and the industry as a whole.

    I was kind of curious about that, too. I've never worked with AP, but I've heard excellent things about them from people in the industry that I respect greatly.

    ProWebAddict: If you'd like to split this out to a separate thread so this discussion can get more attention and we don't lead this thread too far off topic, just say the word.
