The eBay affiliate teams around the globe have been out and about lately, spreading the word about the eBay Partner Network and having a great time. In April we had a very successful run at AdTech San Francisco, one of the premier events in digital marketing. We had the opportunity to meet a number of you and are pleased to report that feedback on the new eBay Partner Network has been very positive.
The affiliate team in France attended AdTech Paris, where more than 3000 people showed up. The eBay Partner Network booth proved to be very popular (we don’t think this had anything to do with the France ePN team giving away two Nintendo Wiis to lucky competition winners!).
In case you missed it, we also spoke about key ways to maximize revenues as an eBay seller and an affiliate at the 9th eCommerce Summit in New Orleans in April, an event co-sponsored by PESA (Professional eBay Sellers Alliance). We’ve compiled some of these tips into another blog post, which you can check out here.
We have several upcoming events this summer and we’d love to see you at one (or more) of them. We’ll be at the eBay Developers Conference June 16 -18 at McCormick Place West in Chicago, followed by eBay Live! 2008 from June 19-21. The Developer’s Conference targets any savvy developer or company with great ideas for making e-commerce better with tools, widgets, solutions, or services, (which is likely to be many of you!). eBay Live! is, of course, our annual gathering of more than 10,000 eBay Community members, with a mission to share tips, strategies and a great time. This is one of our favorite events of the year and we hope you’ll try to make it out.
If you can’t make either of those, on July 9 and 10 you can find us at the eComXpo, the free global virtual forum and job fair for ecommerce marketers. The coolest thing about the eComXpo is you can attend without leaving your house (or changing out of your pajamas), so there are no excuses not to check us out there.
Lastly, for our international affiliates, we’ll be at the A4U expo in London on October 14 and 15. We always like to get to know our affiliates in person, so if you’re going, please stop by!
We hope to see you soon!
