I was able to get away for a couple of days and attend the New York Ad-tech show, which I’ve made it to I think just about every year. It is one of my favourite shows because the volume of companies exhibiting is so substantial – and one can really get a good idea as to where the money is flowing in startups/launches/new ventures.
I was also lucky to have the opportunity to speak with Shawn Collins on his “Affiliate Thing” podcast at the Affiliate Summit booth. Also on board were co-Affiliate Summitter Missy Ward, and Connie Berg. We had a good time talking about some industry news, issues, and it gave me an opportunity to talk about our PPC “3 Strikes” policy as well. Since September 1st when the policy became active, we’ve received a great amount of feedback and reports. I would also like to thank all of the affiliates who have really stepped up their efforts to make sure that they are in compliance with the rules at hand. I know how difficult it is to keep up with so many policies, and your effort is very much appreciated. We know there will always be mistakes, hiccups, etc… and will continue to do our best to determine the difference between an honest mistake and a continued violation. So thank you….
