Kicking off the 2012 Affiliate Industry Preview Series

The beginning of a new year always signals an opportunity to create new growth and positive change. With the economy signaling a recovery and the increasing expansion of the digital world offline, 2012 holds a lot of promise. This year I’m happy to say that a wider array of industry experts participated than ever before in our Affiliate Industry Preview. I sat down with industry leaders from Affiliate Summit, LinkShare, Google Affiliate Network, ShareASale,, and Impact Radius to provide you with their insights as to what’s ahead in 2012. The interviews focus on:

  • the state of the affiliate industry
  • opportunities social media and mobile will bring in 2012
  • how SOPA legislation will impact marketing
  • outlook on the Amazon tax
  • what network advances each are working on
  • what their plans and goals are for the current year

The goal of these interviews is to provide an insight into what each industry leader feels is key to affiliate marketing’s continued success. We will kick things off today with an interview with Brian Littleton, owner of ShareASale!
