Affiliate Management: Top 7 Presentations (Slides and Videos)

Affiliate management speakerI speak on affiliate management quite often. This is what I do daily, and this is also the topic to which most of my books were devoted to. In fact, up to this point, most of my public speaking engagements have been centered around the topic of effective management of affiliate programs.

Having just analyzed my most popular presentations on SlideShare and YouTube, two things jumped at me: (1) all of the most-frequently-viewed ones were devoted to affiliate management, and (2) all of them were presented at one conference — Affiliate Summit (between 2010 and 2015).

And, should you wonder, the cumulative viewership of these has already crossed the 50,000 views threshold.

Today I’d like to bring you my top 7 presentations (descriptions and slides for all, and videos where available), hoping that they will help you make your affiliate programs better steering them towards growth and incremental value. Here they are (ranked based on the view count at the time of this post’s publication):

AM Navigator Named Among Best Affiliate Management Agencies of 2013

While some would rank “best affiliate marketing companies” monthly (often bundling up affiliate program management (or OPM) agencies together with affiliate networks and other vendors in the space), it is the yearly rankings that are most honorable, in my opinion.

There are several of these around — from network specific to industry-wide ones. Among the latter ones in the U.S. are Affiliate Summit’s Pinnacle Awards and ABestWeb’s “The Best Of” Awards.

Myself (and my company, AM Navigator) had the honor of making the list of finalists for Affiliate Summit’s awards (including the 2013 inclusion in the “Affiliate Manager of the Year” category), but it’s been some time since AM Navigator was last nominated for “The OPM of the Year” award at After holding the award for three years in a row (2006, 2007, and 2008) I was thrilled to see us nominated again for 2013.

The voting closed yesterday, and I am happy to see that we, actually, came as #2 (gathering near 30% of all votes):

Thanks to Kush of VM Innovations (who himself holds an Affiliate Manager of the Year 2014 Pinnacle Award from Affiliate Summit) for his nomination, and big thanks to everyone who voted for me, my work, and my business here.

Congratulations also to Greg Hoffman for winning this one, and to all the other nominees. It is a truly amazing line-up of agencies and individuals. I am proud to personally know every one of them.
