Earlier this month, Matt Bidinger took to the ABestWeb Forums to compare the major affiliate networks operating in the US. Encouraging both the networks themselves and the wider affiliate community to get involved and offer updates and additions to the information available, the result is an easy-to-use, unbiased profile which we believe will prove a useful tool to anyone working within the channel.
We caught up with Matt to find out what sparked this idea and his hopes for it affecting progress within the industry.
How long and in what capacity have you worked in the affiliate channel?
I have worked actively in the affiliate channel since February of 2011. I say actively, because I’ve had a hand in driving affiliate revenue years before I knew what the industry was about and upon joining ABestWeb at that time I learned what it really meant. I am an affiliate on the side currently, and my day job is community management where I’m employed by iNet Interactive – the owners of ABW.
