In this episode, Trisha & Daniel look at the elephant in the room – Black Friday & Cyber Monday data – and wax philosophical on whether or not these kind of days are relevant to online marketers. Also discussed is – why not a Cyber Monday in May? They take a look at the new Performance Marketing Association board of directors, say glowing things about president-elect Brian Littleton, and bring it back around to holiday shopping.
In this installment, Trisha regales us with her frustration having to fulfill her civic duty for the courts and, probably because of that, gets annoyed at Penn Jillette calling Adam Carolla a ‘pioneer’ of using Amazon links. Of course, that evolves into a semantic discussion of the concept of a podcast sponsor vs. a podcast using affiliate programs.
In this installment, after missing a week (blame Trisha), Trisha & Daniel debated the methods behind the lack of moderation of proposed panels for Affiliate Summit, discuss their feelings of the changes to this year’s Pinnacle Awards, and give some props to charity. Hindsight is 20/20, and we talked about the retirement of the Affiliate Marketing Legend award and our speculations, but if you listen to this week’s Affiliate Thing, Shawn explains the actual fate of the Legend award.
In this installment, the first on QAQN, Daniel plays a supporting role while Trisha goes for Oscar gold as host of Affiliate Marketing Fanatics. Former co-host Mike Buechele is mentioned, as is an update to what Trisha’s been up to lately in the affiliate marketing world. Our hosts discuss the positive ROI they got from attending Affiliate Summit East 2012 in New York and some recent knee-jerk reactions by affiliate managers that are false, and developments in the affiliate nexus tax in California and Pennsylvania that are true.
