Affiliate Marketing Digest: What We’ve Got for You Today


So much of the news we have to share with you in today’s Affiliate Marketing Digest has to do with industry trade shows. We’re just back from Affiliate Management Days, which took place last week in San Francisco. Did you go? It was a great show. We look forward to the AMDays London next month.

It has just been announced that ShareASale ThinkTank will take place Oct. 19-21 in Charlotte, N.C.

And Brook Schaaf has just selected to speak at Affiliate Summit East, which takes place Aug. 10-12 in New York City.
Check out the full show agenda for the lineup of sessions and speakers.

If you’re planning to attend any of these conferences or would like more information, let us know. We’d like to coordinate and schedules and hope to see you at some of these shows!

Topping our news share this week is an info-filled deck from Business Insider called The Future of Retail 2014– and the big take-away here is that e-commerce is capturing a larger share of sales than ever before – much more than experts had expected.

We’ve also got a Q&A about the recent CJ Conversant rebrand.

You’ll also want to read this great case study about how one company used promoted Tweets to heat up sales during the Polar Vortex (that’s newspeak for winter storm).

Eric Nash at Stamps has something to share with us this week. just made a blog post that compares delivery times, packing tracking and shipping costs for USPS, FedEx and UPS.  It is focused on package delivery for e-commerce sellers and we wanted all of our Digest readers to have this information.

One last item: As a reward for meeting a big goal we set for ourselves as a company in February, the entire team took a Half Day to Play last week. The only requirements were that we each did something for ourselves – and that we share a photo of the fun. We invite you to check out our Half Day to Play photo gallery.subscribeAMD
