Shining a Light on the a4uAwards in London

spotlight We’re excited to announce our participation in the a4uAwards happening on May 17th in London!

We know that our industry is full of hardworking folks that continue to innovate and drive the business of online marketing forward. We feel it’s important, from time to time, to shine a spotlight on the great achievements that continuously unfold behind the scenes. To that end, we’re proud to announce eBay Partner Network’s sponsorship of this event. Specifically, we’re supporting the “Vertical Awards” category:

From the a4u website:

As an Advertiser, judges will be looking for evidence of how well they have integrated their Affiliate Marketing activity into their Digital Marketing strategy. In addition, the judges will want to see evidence of transparency, relationship management, communication strategy, innovative thinking and aligning Publisher expectations with internal brand goals.

For Publisher awards, the judges will be looking for evidence of success in engaging Advertiser relationships, aligning revenue opportunity with Advertiser goals alongside transparency, value-add, innovativeness and vertical performance.

In addition to ePN’s direct participation, two of our European agency partners are up for awards. Affilinet is nominated in two categories for “Publishers Choice of Affiliate Network” and “Best New Entrant,” and R.O.Eye is nominated for “Best 3rd Party Application” for their eBay Geo-Targeting Tool.

We salute and congratulate all the nominees on their accomplishments and wish Affilinet and R.O.Eye the best of luck in their respective categories!
