Why the Dawn of a New Ecommerce Baseline Means You Need to Demand More from Your Affiliate Platform | Ian Charlesworth, Regional Managing Director | 19th October at 12pm at Rakuten Stage
The mass adoption of online shopping, combined with the migration of many businesses to the internet and marketers finally fully embracing performance-based ad models, have broken affiliate into the mainstream once and for all. But with that added interest and investment come a new set of dilemmas: increased scrutiny and expectations of what the channel can deliver. This new ecommerce baseline means you need to demand more from your affiliate platform. More sophisticated tools, more robust tracking, more flexibility of service. In this session, Ian will show how the landscape has changed forever and why it demands a new set of expectations from affiliate platforms if the industry is to truly capitalise on its sudden popularity.
