With the Amsterdam Affiliate Conference less than a week away, our diaries are filling up with meetings fast. Events are a great way to build your network and meet new people but where should you focus your time and how do you make attending worthwhile? Here are 4 key things you can do at this event, to help your affiliate business grow and expand your brand reach.
1. Commercialise your affiliate business – with a little inside help
If you want to take your affiliate business to the next level, then you have to learn to network at big events. The art of small talk helps but you can also look to align yourself with industry mentors who can help you get better connected in this competitive community. Our founder, Lee-Ann Johnstone, has over 20 years of experience in the affiliate marketing business. She can quickly identify areas where you could be improving your business , affiliate programme and branding plus help get you connected to companies that are serious about the affiliate channel. We offer unique mentoring 1:1 for affiliate businesses and arrange unique retreats which could help you to progress your affiliate business forward. These invaluable mentoring sessions can take your affiliate business from zero to hero. If you struggle with accountability or feel like your brand is stuck in a rut, these sessions can really help.
2. Improve your affiliate marketing strategies
It’s a great way to learn new skills. Whilst the event streams offer a lot of thought insight the job of an affiliate manager is complex. Learning how to implement strategies that can help expand your portfolio growth is a good way to improve skills development in your team. Our affiliate manager training courses offer great insight and an opportunity for your marketing team to gain insight with an expert. You can also glean essential information to make your brand thrive in the current competitive landscape. Affiliate manager’s have to keep ahead of the digital landscape. With targeted training, you’ll be kept ahead of the curve and learning the latest trends to upscale your brand reach. Whether you want to be better at negotiating or just require a programme tune up, we can help.
3. Investigate diverse conferences
At a conference this big you don’t always have a chance to have meaningful conversations that can lead to new business opportunities. There is much to see and do and there are so many people meet on mass. Finding conferences that are smaller and can offer a deeper level of content and networking can be useful for your business as well. AffiliateFEST offers a depth of content provided FREE to affiliates to allow them the opportunity to get a deeper understanding of the affiliate landscape and a expert view of the ever disrupting digital environment. Operators and suppliers can learn more about affiliates views, what the challenges are and overcome them to work symbiotically together. You’ll also have the chance to put your brand in front of affiliates who are serious about growing their business. This is a fantastic opportunity to get involved in an incredibly engaged audience.
AffiliateFEST is a really unique event and that makes for a great opportunity for advertisers. Our delegates are driven to take their business forward and they’re excited to learn about brands that can help them do just that.
