We’ve had a lot of fun this year bringing you one piece of new, original content every day during our “Daily Blog 2013” project. This post will be the final post of the year as we look to recharge our batteries, take a little bit of vacation, and finalize preparations for a busy 2014. Here are 10 things we are really looking forward to in the coming year.
AFFILIATE SUMMIT WEST 2014
ShareASale is the Titanium Sponsor of the Affiliate Summit coming up in January in Las Vegas. We look to the 2 Affiliate Summits every year as amazing opportunities to meet with our clients, and introduce new Affiliates and Merchants to the ShareASale Network.
We also host a party on Sunday night – this year it is themed as “Super Heroes vs. Super Villains” – we hope to see you there!

Looking to have your Affiliates post printable coupons – and reward them through the Affiliate Channel, you can utilize our Online/Offline Tracking to get it done.
With mobile traffic nearly doubling in its percentage of overall Black Friday and Cyber Monday traffic – there is no doubt that more Merchants will be focused on this channel in 2014.
Utilize ShareASale’s Mobile Tracking to track installs of your app, and more importantly transactions/sales that take place within that app.
INCREASED FLEXIBILITY ON CLICKSTREAM COMMISSIONS
ShareASale’s innovative Clickstream Commission Tracking and Personalized Commission Rules give your Merchant program the chance to set yourself apart from others. You can now see directly on each transaction which of your Affiliates were involved and commission them differently based on when/how those clicks took place.
ANOTHER YEAR OF PARTICIPATING IN OUR INDUSTRY ORGANIZATION
ShareASale is a proud Charter and Industry Champion member of the Performance Marketing Association. This year, the PMA successfully challenged the State of Illinois in court and invalidated the “Nexus Law” that hurt Affiliate Marketers in Illinois.
Our President and CEO, Brian Littleton, is the current Board President and will be working closely with other board members to continue good and necessary work on behalf of the entire industry.
We have a fun new fundraising initiative that allows you the opportunity to get your message out to the Performance Marketing community, and help out the PMA at the same time – check it out below!
MORE BLOGGERS – MORE CATALOGS
We’ve been helping bloggers monetize for over 10 years, and look forward to meeting more of you at the upcoming conferences in 2014. One of the ways we love connecting with bloggers is through our Merchant Catalog which comes out seasonally (4 per year) and is filled with promotional ideas, ShareASale Merchant highlights, and timely articles.
You can see the list of past catalogs here.
STOREFRONTS AND FUNDRAISING
If you are a Merchant on ShareASale, an exciting new program is available to you which we expect to see a lot of in 2014.
Help your favourite charities, fundraisers, schools, PTAs, or other organization raise money for themselves while inspiring a whole new building block for your program.
GOOGLE+ and PINTEREST
We already love communicating with all of you on Facebook and Twitter, and look to expand that in 2014 with additional pages on Google+ and Pinterest.
