Retailers, merchants, sellers, vendors, marketers this is the one book for you. Learn the secrets, strategies and pathways to additional profits by effectively managing an affiliate marketing program from a true expert in the field, Geno Prussakov and his illuminating book AFFILIATE PROGRAM MANAGEMENT: AN HOUR A DAY.
My only concern is that the title is somewhat misleading and to some extent demeaning to the treatise. What I believe Geno is trying to convey is to not treat this book as an intellectual exercise, but as a disciplined process guide to initiating an affiliate program. I just think that the "Hour A Day" part could have been improved upon to give a more accurate and enticing impression.
Other than that, this is a book that is destined to become a staple read in the industry - a classic.
We had an affiliate system for several years, and had the idea to refresh it.
This book is helping us make a complete turnaround.
All of a sudden we where thinking about the right words / to have more banners in more sizes / to have a clear TOS / cookie life...
Normally when reading good business books, they are really helpful but often lack one thing: call to action through structure.
This I realized after reading this book, which has a big call to action.
With this in mind, we started developing our affiliate program from scratch,
in easy to follow steps.
Writing style -> perfect for following it
Knowledge received -> more than hoped.
If you are an affiliate manager / owner of an affiliate merchant system, there is no way around this book.
It is really a must, and money well spend.
If you are an affiliate, this book could also be of help since it gives you an inside to detect good from bad merchants.
Happy to have read this book.
