Don’t Miss Affiliate Marketing Digest


Our Affiliate Marketing Digest is here with the latest news and tips for you.

Halloween continues to grow as a commercial holiday – and it’s posed for another great year according to industry estimates. We’ve got a look at creative marketing that is helping retailers make the most of Halloween. Don’t miss the list of the most-searched Halloween costumes this year. Hint: minions are hot! We want a minion, already.
You can also take this opportunity to review the forecast for Q4 and holiday sales.

Forrester has a new study that suggests that while apps have consumer attention, in-app advertising is far from perfect.

We’ve got a fresh update on FCC regulations that might affect your business. If part of your marketing efforts includes auto-dial telemarketing, you should read about the latest FCC requirement.

For those of you who like to think about the future (you know who you are) we’ve got an interesting piece on digital wallets, which most adults expect to replace physical money according to a new survey.

This week’s actionable tips includes two must-reads: four words that double persuasion. Can you guess what they are? We’re told they are even MORE effective than a Jedi mind trick. You should also read the five reasons why you should embrace rejection (aside from the obvious reason: that rejection fuels inspiration for that country song you’ve been meaning to write).

We also announced a new client this week. Schaaf-PartnerCentric is now managing thePaper Style affiliate program on the CJ network.

One last thing: Affiliate Summit is now accepting nominations for your favorite affiliate marketing blogs. There are a lot of great blogs out there – and if you enjoy this weekly Affiliate Marketing Digest, which is a big part of our blog offering, we ask that you include the Schaaf-PartnerCentric blog among your favorites.
