Connecting with Our Partners at Affiliate Summit West

Another Affiliate Summit is in the books and I suspect that many of you have returned home and started executing on some of the information and actionable contacts you picked up in Las Vegas. Additionally, we know that many of you can’t make the event each year and will gather takeaways from blogs and other social media channels. For those that are interested, we thought we’d share the focus and the takeaways of our trip to Affiliate Summit.

In years past, we’ve focused industry trends and what other companies are working on in the space. And while we’re still dialed-in to the greater affiliate marketing industry, our focus was a bit different this year. Instead of looking outward at the events and sessions, we chose to focus our team’s attention on partner meetings.

You’ve heard a lot about our V.O.T.E.S. strategy and that will continue to be a familiar theme as the year progresses. We’re working hard to remove obstacles and better understand what our publishers need to grow their business with us. Our meetings at Affiliate Summit went a long way to helping us understand what we need to do to move the needle.

What were some familiar themes you kept hearing at Affiliate Summit? We’d love to get your feedback in the comments below.

Every January Affiliate Summit West sets the tone for the New Year in online marketing by hosting one of the premiere conference events in the industry.
