Affiliate Summit is the best show for the performance marketing industry. You can find affiliate partners that can bring you new customers as well as learn how to combat poaching and theft. There are also sessions to help grow your business inlcuding SEO, Monetization, Email, Blog Optimization, PPC, Affiliate Marketing and more.
While you’re going around to learn from the speakers and network with more than 5,000+ people, you have to make the best use of your time. That’s why many newcomers and some who have been to the show already ask themselves, “how do you effectively pick who is a good partner so you can spend time with them and also give an effective pitch so that they are interested, without wasting time”.
This post will help you to figure that out and develop the perfect pitch to evaluate a partner, see if they are a fit and deliver a perfect pitch to get them to want to work with you.
There are three types of people that will be pitching affiliates (for the most part).
- Merchants – those with an ecommerce store or offer
- Networks – tracking technology platforms that work to provide tracking solutions for affiliates and merchants
- Other – Vendors, agencies, etc…
In this post I’m going to go over how a Merchant and a Network can effectively pitch an Affiliate and help to get them interested.
(Side note: If you already have meetings set up, especially with an SEO affiliate who you want to build a site out for you or dedicated pages, you may want to read this post with how to pitch an SEO affiliate.) [Read more…] about How to Pitch Affiliates at Affiliate Summit (Networks & Merchants)
