A big impact from a small change: the $5 sign up fee

Written by Jasmin on . Posted in Network News

With the $5 charge an established part of the Affiliate Window sign up process, it still proves a hot topic for debate among our publishers.

The fee has proved to be a deterrent to potentially bogus affiliate applicants. The reality is that in the days before we implemented our sign-up fee, the network was inundated with bogus affiliate entries. The introduction of the charge saw the number of spurious applications reduce by more than 75%. This meant genuine publishers could promote products & services without fear of their sales being overwritten by non-compliant activity and advertisers could join the network safe in the knowledge that their brands were being protected.

PMI:NYC – An Interview with Geno Prussakov from AM Navigator

Written by Jasmin on . Posted in Interviews

We recently caught up with Geno Prussakov, a well-known affiliate marketing evangelist, author, speaker, Founder & Chair of Affiliate Management Days and the CEO & Founder of AM Navigator LLC, to discuss his involvement as media sponsor and speaker at PMI: New York.


As a conference partner for PMI: NY 2013, what are the key reasons you think it is important for delegates to attend the inaugural event?

Affiliate Management Days (AM Days) which I run, and a4uexpo, have been strategic conference partners since the launch of AM Days back in early 2012. The partnership naturally extended to PMI once it was launched. The three main reasons why I believe it is important to attend any professional conference are (i) education, (ii) networking and (iii) motivation. Looking at PMI’s agenda, it looks like this one is set to cover all three of these.
