Catch Up on the Latest Industry News and Tips


Welcome to another Friday – and another edition of Affiliate Marketing Digest. We’d like to send a shout-out to those of you who are now enjoying the last day of ShareASale Think Tank in Denver. If you weren’t able to attend you can follow the fun on Twitter at #thinktank13.

First, let’s all just take a moment to ponder this statistic: 102.5 million adults will use online coupons this year (an 11% increase over last year).

At the risk of being called Captain Obvious, we’re sharing the news that mobile devices will play a big role in holiday shopping this year (duh!) because the statistics within this story are worth noting.

You already know that Alibaba is a huge player internationally. Now the action has crossed oceans as the company launches an e-commerce investment group in the United States.

While we’re on the topic of money, Twitter is expected to raise more than $1 billion with its upcoming IPO.

If Google+ is part of your marketing mix, you’ll be interested to read this article about how the social media outlet drives very little traffic.
You can also read about how companies waste big bucks on their paid search campaigns.

We’re all in the midst of Q4 mania, so it’s a good time to check out these infographics about the Q4 push for profits.

Check in with Affiliate Marketing Digest each week to get all of this and much more – and tell your friends, too.
They can subscribe today to receive the Digest every Friday.
