Influencer marketing is here to stay. It’s been embraced by both small and large companies, who have the vision to see how working with key influencers can build a brand. As a strategy, it’s evolving and growing, and those businesses not already investing some of their marketing budgets into this area could be missing a big trick. 
Affiliate marketing enables media owners like The Independent and Shortlist Media to maintain their editorial integrity whilst increasing revenue streams. At the start of 2018, Awin saw a 53% growth in sales for traditional publishing houses, with conversion rates slightly higher than the affiliate industry average.
What does a next generation affiliate programme look like? As we enter 2018 what are the tools that we need to have in place in order to build a campaign fit for purpose? Undoubtedly data goes to the very heart of these questions and this was the key theme considered in the global team's presentation at this year's PerformanceIN Live conference.
