by James Martell on May 30, 2012

In this edition of the Affiliate Buzz audio newsletter James Martell, successful publisher, speaker and author talks with Matt McWilliams, winner of the 2009 AWeb Best Affiliate Manager and Affiliate Summit’s Pinnacle Award for Affiliate Manager of the Year 2010 as they walk through a day in the life of a top affiliate manager.

Matt, affiliate manager of Tiny Prints, the number two ranked affiliate program in ShareASale is a frequent contributor for Feed Front Magazine and is a published author in Internet Marketing From Real Experts.

But just what does it take to be named affiliate manager of the year two years in a row? Listen in as Matt shares the ins and outs of managing an affiliate business, always striving to improve “the numbers” and making sure affiliates know how important they are to the overall business.

Matt divides his day into a 3 part work day with one third focused on the individual affiliate, one third focused on all affiliates as a whole and one third, his least favorite part of the day focused on the numbers.

As you follow along with Matt’s day it’s easy to understand why he was chosen as affiliate of the year – his attention to the affiliates. You’ll learn that talking with his affiliates is his favorite part of the job. In fact you’ll learn that that one on one interaction is what gets him through his less than desirable parts of the job.
