    It's no secret the networks I'm a fan of. For 2014 though, ShareASale is deserving because of their continued commitment to ethical affiliate marketing and in 2014, they really stepped it up with their platform tools. Their release of the Product Discovery Bookmarklet and the Product Showcase put some really awesome tools out there for affiliates that were an improvement over similar existing technologies. They also released a really powerful update to the Make A Page feature that really stepped up the functionality for affiliates using their system. They have great people and Brian and the team there were awesome to work with in developing tools to take our programs to the next level. 2015 is already shaping up to be a banner year for new tools from SAS as well.

    Echo Wade's nomination:

    Shareasale

    Simply the most stable platform with no issues for us last year (or any year that I can remember).

    Wish our merchants on other networks, specifically CJ and LinkShare, would migrate to Shareasale...

    I would like to nominate AvantLink who added an Australian network to compliment their US and Canadian networks. They added a slew of new tools and tracking enhancements:

    • Realtime Tracking with zero delay
      SnapDealist affiliate tool
      SnapVisi affiliate tool
      Tag Management (adjustable cookies, commission, referral restrictions, tracking parameters, etc)
      New Customer Tracking
      Dynamic Text Ad Integration
      Restrict Ad Campaigns to Multiple Affiliates
      Bulk Ad Editing
      You can read about these in their blog http://www.avantshare.com/blog/


    They also won an award for Utah Business Fast 50 fastest growing companies.

    My favorite has already been nominated, but the list isn't complete without the two big players in the industry. Neither will get my vote, but I do think they should be on the list of choices.

    Linkshare (or Rakuten Marketing, if you prefer)
    CJ
