Have your say at the 2016 Performance Marketing Awards

Written by Sophie Johnson on . Posted in Network News

Two objectives have shaped Affiliate Window’s work over the past year: focus on the development of affiliate marketing and challenge the industry’s conventions.

These goals have driven our strategy over the past 12 months, and have seen Affiliate Window deliver first-to-market innovations that we believe are setting the industry up to deliver better results for advertisers, and expand the number of publishers that can make a genuine success of affiliate marketing. We hope this will be a major consideration for you when casting your vote at the eagerly anticipated Performance Marketing Awards this year.
