Affiliate Marketing – The Xⁿ Billion Dollar Business

Affiliate marketing, even after being around for many years, is starting to take its deserved place in the news and in companies’ marketing budgets.

Why are we seeing so much explosion in the affiliate marketing space? Is it because affiliate marketing has finally become mainstream, or is it because affiliate marketing is a natural fit for the breadth of online services and apps that have been launched? Looks like affiliate marketing has finally found its niche in the New Services Economy.

Affiliate Marketing in Emerging Markets

From an international merchant perspective, after you have the “hottest” regions of the world already covered – North America and Western Europe – the next step is to look towards emerging markets. These markets provide room to expand if you address them the right way.

The City of Affiliate Love: Affiliate Summit East Review

I have to admit I was somewhat reluctant when I saw the announcement that the Affiliate Summit East 2013 was being held in Philadelphia instead of New York (where it’s been for the past few years). One of the good things about the move was that holding the event in a dedicated convention center helped with the free networking activities. The space was much more generous and you could just sit down and talk with the people you set meetings with, which was really a plus. One not-so-joyous aspect of the change was the fact that all the Philly shops close at 7 PM, so if you wanted to do some non-food-and-drinks shopping later than that, you were in for a surprise. :)
