For the first time ever, I submitted a solo speaker proposal for Affiliate Summit.  I’ve spoken on 5 panels in the past, all of which were terrific experiences.  For Affiliate Summit East 2014, coming up in August back in New York City, I decided that I’d dip my toe into the solo speaking with an Ask the Experts round table discussion proposal.

You can vote for it here: Utilizing Affiliate Manager Relationships

Whenever affiliates ask me for advice, I always recommend creating a good relationship with their affiliate manager.  I think there is endless possibility to grow your business when you take advantage of someone who has expertise that you don’t have.  This goes for any person, but it’s the most accessible for affiliates to reach out to an affiliate manager.  There’s nothing a good affiliate manager wants more than to make a connection with an affiliate, so why more affiliates don’t take advantage of good managers who work with the merchants day in and day out is beyond me.

Why Should You Vote For Me?

I have been an affiliate manager since late 2006, managing a variety of programs in different niches.  I’ve been both an in-house manager working for the merchant and an outsourced program manager working for a third party agency.  I have been a speaker at marketing conferences in the past, as well as contributing many guest articles for industry-leading publications like FeedFront Magazine, Marketing Pilgrim, and others.  I know what I’m talking about, I promise 🙂

I’m very happy to report that, as of last night, my submission is among the most popular, so thank you to those that voted already.  I’m looking forward to making a return to being  a speaker at summit after a few Summits off.  If you’ve already voted, please do me a favor and share the link with your audience for more votes!  Thank you!
