“I had the opportunity to attend Influencer Marketing Days 2017 in New York last week. IMD is a 2-day conference providing speakers from around the world providing the latest trends, data and insights into influencer marketing today. I was able to attend some great sessions that provided helpful knowledge about the state of influencer marketing. Although there were many fantastic sessions, I’ve chosen just a couple to recap this time.”

“Influencer Marketing does not need to be expensive… but you should take the right approach.
In my humble opinion, Influencer Marketing can be done in 2 ways:
1.You have a large budget… and it is enough.
2.You do not have a large budget, but you have the knowledge, you are passionate about your business, and you know how to build mutually beneficial relationships with others.
In this article, you will learn amazing ways to advertise your business through influencer marketing if you have a limited budget or even no budget!”
“We consider the Affiliate Summit attendees to be an important part of the team and the decision making process for the conference and tradeshow.
And we want to know what you think, where we can improve, and any ideas you have for things to add to Affiliate Summit.
Check-in and get your badge early (before the lines on Sunday), then come out and join Affiliate Summit Co-CEO’s, Missy Ward and Shawn Collins, for an open discussion.”
“Do you get up at 4am to work before the rest of the world wakes up? Does your morning routine include meditation, cold shower, coffee? Or coffee, cold shower, meditation?
With the amounts of tips and tricks out there telling us how to have the most productive morning possible, you’d think the majority of the working population spends the pre-lunch hours lifelessly shuffling around like a bunch of office-bound zombies.
In fact, nothing could be further from the truth”
“Affiliate program management is the process of overseeing and developing a brand’s affiliate marketing program.
There are various ways to handle it, and in this article I would like to look at three approaches which are quite popular among advertisers.”

“From Thanksgiving how-tos and holiday buying guides to sporting events and odd observances, there are plenty of content topics your business can use in November 2017.
Content marketing is the act of creating, publishing, and distributing content with the specific goal of attracting, engaging, and retaining customers.
Useful, informative, and entertaining articles, videos, and podcasts are a form of owned media your business can use to first build an audience and then sell to that audience.
What follows are five topics meant to inspire your November content marketing efforts.”
“As brand marketers look for additional ways to build, grow and engage with consumers they are often turning to influencer marketing. This means working with select content providers and bloggers that have developed a following and can help the brand reach a new audience in ways they couldn’t.
More often than not, this involves the merchant paying the blogger to create a one-time content piece that appears on the influencer’s site. That strategy works and yields results for both parties. However, it usually results in a traffic spike for the merchant only for a short period of time and the influencer is only paid once for their content.
Recently, speaking at Influencer Marketing Days in New York, Marty Marion, Director of Digital at iAffiliate Management, discussed additional ways for merchants and influencers to work together. His presentation called Beyond Sponsored Posts: Monetizing for the Long Haul, focused on both parties establishing a relationship and creating a long-term content strategy that is a win-win.”
