Announcing the 2010 Affiliate Industry Preview Series

The beginning of a new year always signals an opportunity to create new growth and positive change. In preparation I sat down with Affiliate Summit, Commission Junction, LinkShare, Google Affiliate Network, and ShareASale to provide you with their insights to what’s ahead for the industry in 2010. The interviews focus on:

  • impact of the recession on the affiliate industry
  • impact of the anti-affiliate taxes (aka Amazon tax) in 2009
  • how the battle against anti-affiliate tax legislation is shaping up in 2010
  • lessons the affiliate industry has learned as it has evolved
  • what technology will be at the forefront in 2010
  • what their plans and goals where for current year

Don’t expect blood in the water. There won’t be any mudslinging. There will however, at the end of the series, be a “mystery” interview with a company that is about to launch a public beta this week with a very interesting new model.

The goal of these interviews will be to provide an insight into what each industry leader feels is important to the industry’s continued success and a preview of what they are focusing on in 2010.

Here are the links to the interviews:

Interview with Shawn Collins of Affiliate Summit

Interview with Kerri Pollard of Commission Junction

Interview with Jonathan Levine of LinkShare

Interview with Brian Littleton of ShareASale

Interview with Larry Adams of Google

“Mystery Guest”

Editor’s Note: We did attempt to include Buy.at in the series but were informed that their PR team was not interested in providing access. Charlie Calabrese runs a great team that has always been generous, giving, and approachable. It is too bad that internal restraints have prohibited them from taking part.
