Affiliate Marketing Industry News 2-11-2016
Thanks for checking out this week’s edition of the Affiliate Marketing Industry News Roundup! I’ve collected some interesting and timely pieces from around the interwebs.
Here is a preview of some of our top stories;
This week was brimming with insightful posts! Greg Hoffman published a couple of posts; one that offers phenomenal insight into the strategy of a thriving affiliate management company and another about managing a remote workforce…with a lovely reference to FMTC. 😀 We’re excited to announce the release of the public Merchant Hub, destined to become the go-to resource for publishers. AMDays early bird registration closes tomorrow, and Geno Prussakov wrote a post that cites CMOs as having a paltry 22% mastery of affiliate marketing and AMDays Early Bird period ends tomorrow. We can’t forget to highlight Fresh Press Media’s upcoming LIVE EVENTS, aimed at connecting niche publishers with relevant advertisers.
As always, if you have an industry story that you’d like us to share, there is a submission link at the end of this post.
“Being Indispensable” is the mission of FMTC, and Merchant Hub is a gigantic leap toward that goal.
Publishers Use Merchant Hub to:
- Find merchants, products, and brands that visitors will love
- See which networks each merchant is listed
- Review detailed program information & policies
- Keep track of affiliate relationships with thousands of merchants
- Build monetized deep links
- Find logos, screenshots, and other assets
Read this post to learn more uses for Merchant Hub and optional Publisher Toolkit.

As you may guess from the title, CMOs were least knowledgeable in the area of affiliate marketing, with only 22% mastery.
Also, AMDays early bird registration ends tomorrow! Use coupon code FMTC to double up on the savings!

We are accepting applications for 3 Advertisers and 30 Influencers in the Fitness Niche to come to Chicago in March to work together to develop an influencer marketing campaign and perfect pitch.
It is a workshop. No speakers. No meet market. Just a roomful of industry leaders that want to sit down and work together on developing a lasting business relationship.

I loved this post by HubSpot because it provides much-needed information to copywriters and publishers.
The Performance Marketing Summit in Chicago is taking place right before ShareASale ThinkTank at the same hotel.
