Shifting away from a central, network-focused perspective, the latest edition of The Awin Report hears first-hand from various advertiser, publisher, agency and tech provider partners to highlight the diversity of the affiliate channel, demonstrated by the spectrum of partners, sectors, partnerships, business models and tech solutions it facilitates.
Additionally, the report features numerous case studies showcasing affiliate campaigns that delivered powerful results with brands including the BT Group, Sephora, HP and The Hut Group.
Coupled with thought leadership essays written by experts on topics such as influencer marketing and regulation, The Awin Report 2019 provides a comprehensive and essential guide for all digital players.
“Following a turbulent 2018 with digital scandals and data privacy dilemmas dominating the headlines, more than ever brands are in need of a marketing channel that offers stability, transparency and guaranteed return on investment. Likewise the dangers of the Facebook and Google duopoly in advertising were brought to the forefront of both advertiser’s and consumer’s minds. As the number of affiliate partnerships continues to grow, the industry provides a healthy antidote to increased advertising homogeneity through the breadth and diversity of deeply forged partnerships. We hope the report provides a clear indication of the channel’s ability to be a trusted custodian of precious marketing budgets”.– Kevin Edwards, Global Client Strategy, Awin
