Amazon WILL pay affiliates for Twitter links

Author : Tom Rathbone

Last July we reported in this blog – as did many other industry watchdogs – that Amazon.com was refusing to pay affiliates a commission on any sales generated by use of Twitter or Tweets that involved URL shortenerssuch as bit.ly or tinyurl.com.

It’s taken some time, but now Amazon has clarified its position – stating that social marketing, Twitter and URL shorteners are all acceptable means of affiliate marketing via Amazon IF the affiliate follows Amazon’s guidelines.

A new article on SearchEngineJournal.com clears up the confusion and outlines Amazon’s guidelines as they relate to social media marketing.




PartnerCentric attends ShareASale Think Tank 2009

Author : Tom Rathbone

Hats off to Brian Littleton for hosting another great event to help ShareASale‘s top merchants, affiliates and affiliate marketing agencies grow their businesses.

ShareASale Think Tank 2009 took place at
The Resort at Pelican Hill, the newest and most luxurious Resort Property to grace the Southern California – Newport Beach coastline. Whether you’re in the Top One Percenters or not, if you’ve ever dreamed of relaxing in the lap of luxury as they do, this
is the place to Live The Dream.

The resort is breathtaking, and in addition to its massive and palatial design, it is surrounded by sweeping and panaramic views of the Pacific Ocean and countryside.

The Friday Night reception featured a fabulous Cocktail Hour and Dinner along with a casual night of networking and fun. It was great to meet old friends and associates and to make many new acquaintances, too.

Saturday morning was full of coffee and sessions with many panels of
leading merchants from all categories discussing the many challenges and
opportunities they face in Affiliate Marketing.

At lunch on Saturday PartnerCentric hosted its Meet N Greet table and
got to talk one-on-one with many of ShareASale’s Top Merchants and
Affiliates
. Thanks to all who stopped by to say ‘Hello.’

Saturday Afternoon we gathered outside the Coliseum Pool. Each merchant
had their own cabana with which to meet with Affiliates one-on-one to make
deals and get business done. Very cool.

Saturday evening was top shelf only – as in call the limo driver and well, let’s just say that “What goes on in Newport Beach, stays in Newport Beach.” No paparazzi, please!

Sunday Morning featured a great wrap-up session, I have to give it to Brian, he puts himself out there, right in the middle, and fearlessly listens to ‘both
sides of the room’. He is honestly, openly, refeshingly concerned to hear
from his constituents.

Overall this Exclusive Executive Retreatwas enjoyed by all. And the net
result is that ShareASale delivers on the promise of being a customer driven
company, with leadership that is open to innovation and generously promotes
sharing the unique opportunity only provided by affiliate marketing. The ShareASale staff also deserve a big round of applause
for the fantastic job they did in organizing a fun and valuable event!

Everything was perfect!

So, as the sun sets on our retreat, it left us with hope for the future
of our industry and a renewed vision of the opportunity available to those
who take the time to listen to their customers, and who remain open to new
ideas and innovation. ShareASale is that company.

But, the best part of all was when Brian gave everybody who attended a Free
Ferrari. At least I think it’s mine. I walked out of the hotel and
the valet said, “Here you are, sir.” Hey, who am I to question
serendipity?

So, as I speed off to John Wayne Airport to catch my plane with my police
escort, PartnerCentric and I would like to thank Brian Littleton and the
whole ShareASale staff
 for the opportunity to be a part of events such as ShareASale Think Tank 2009, which will help to shape the future of our business.
