Publisher Competition: Mother Knows Best

Written by Jasmin on . Posted in Competition

There are times when Mother seems to be endlessly nagging – offering unsolicited wisdom, and generally being a know-it-all – but we all look back at some stage and realize just how right she was! In the run up to Mother’s Day (May 12th), we have been thinking about the best guidance that Mom ever gave us. We’ve also been thinking about the best way to say thank you to the most important lady in our lives. Sounds like it’s time for a fun publisher competition!

The top three pieces of advice will receive:

•  1st prize: Swarovski Galet Light Azore Blue Mini Pendant

•  2nd Prize: Swarovski Crystal Jay d Lovlot

•  3rd prize: Swarovski Ring

To be entered for a chance to win, simply send us a tweet or Facebook comment, telling us the best piece of advice that your Mom ever gave you.

Pay your Mom back for all her hard work keeping you on the straight and narrow, with a lovely surprise courtesy of Affiliate Window and Swarovski.

March Update

Written by Jasmin on . Posted in Monthly Update

It’s been business as usual here at Affiliate Window, here are the key pieces that have kept us busy in the month of March:

Conferences:

PMI:NYC took place mid- March and Affiliate Window was proud to be the Titanium sponsor for the inaugural event. A full round up of the event can be found on our blog and for those who did not attend, we recommend having a read of the #PMINYC twitter stream for all the data heavy stats, tips and quotes from across the two days.

Attendance at Internet Retailer

We are looking forward to attending the 9th annual Internet Retailer Conference and Exhibition, the world’s largest e-commerce event which will be held at Chicago’s McCormick Place West from June 4-7, 2013. Be sure to stop by Affiliate Window’s booth – number 841.

March Madness Dominating Sports/Ticketing Merchants

We published our March Madness newsletter as we geared up for an exciting month in sport. Some fun facts about March Madness- A survey conducted by MSN showed that 86% of employees will spend part of their work day checking on stats. Last year the four channels broadcasting the tournament took in $738 million- that’s $493 million more than the Super Bowl. $3.5 billion will be spent on March Madness betting pools this year. With 63 games and 2 possible outcomes per game, that makes your chance of filling out your brackets right 1 in over 18 quintillion.

Utah Drops Affiliate Nexus Tax Bill

March 13, 2013 saw the Performance Marketing Association and its law firm, Brann and Isaacson, send a targeted letter to Governor Herbert of Utah, outlining legal arguments around why the proposed ‘affiliate nexus tax’ legislation is unconstitutional. Learn more here.

Affiliate Tax

Many states actively pursued internet tax collection based on a University of Tennessee study indicating that approximately $11.4 billion in revenue would go uncollected in 2012; however now most are learning that those numbers were over-ambitious, as a new study forecasts a tax potential of only $3.9 billion.  New York has so far collected $360 million as of Feb, 2012, far less than the $2.5 billion the original study predicted. Overstock.com has notified Massachusetts affiliates that ties will be severed if current legislation passes. Utah legislation has died in committee.

The New York Supreme Court upheld the original state affiliate nexus tax legislation, setting the stage for a US Supreme Court case.  At the Federal level, the Marketplace Fairness Act received Senate approval in a 75-24 vote as part of the national budget negotiations.
