In the course of the past three weeks we were flooded with speaking proposals for Affiliate Management Days, the new professional forum for affiliate program managers, and everyone involved in affiliate marketing on the advertiser’s side. It wasn’t an easy task, but we’ve selected the speakers for the San Francisco 2012 conference, and the agenda is already live on the website. Here are just a few things to highlight:
- 4 keynote presentations
- 20 breakout sessions
- 25 speakers
- Topics include affiliate recruitment, dealing with fraud, adware, and black hat techniques, web analytics, attribution data, landing page optimization, branding, influence and persuasion, trends and innovations, mobile, video, social, and much more!
