Friday Podcast: Building Your Affiliate Karma With Missy Ward

missy wardI’d hesitated about approaching Affiliate Summit co-founder Missy Ward for this series till I felt the time was right.

As an experienced affiliate professional, Missy has built up a reputation in the industry, serving in senior management positions like:

  • Director of Public Relations for Media Breakaway LLC (formerly CPA Empire, now known as affiliate.com)
  • Vice President of Partnership Marketing for eBound Strategies
  • President of Aluria Software
  • Vice-President of Marketing for Global Travel International

Some of these positions were concurrent with taking a leading role in launching and growing the Affiliate Summit conference/trade show as well as a number of fundraising intiaitives.

If you’ve had a chance to talk to Missy during one of the trade shows, you’d find that she’s personable and knowledgable. During the course of our discussion, I got to know Missy better, including:

  • How she got involved in affiliate marketing
  • The formation of the Affiliate Summit and it’s goals and growth over the years
  • How she got involved with fundraising activities, concurrently growing her affiliate business
  • A preview of upcoming Affiliate Summit conferences and related events
  • The guerilla marketing strategies used to promote the summit (merchants and affiliate networks can take a leaf out of Missy and Shawn’s playbook)
  • Missy’s video blogging and promotion strategies
  • A number of inspirational moments from the recent Affiliate Summit
  • Key updates involving projects like Geekcast.fm, a new podcast in the making, Missy’s return to affiliate management and the revamped AffStat affiliate industry survey

    Wow — did we really talk for an hour? The time just flew by! I hope we don’t put your listeners to sleep ;-)

    As we talked about before the call, by design, I don’t like to do interviews unless I’m comfortable with the interviewer and the situation feels right.

    This is the first interview I’ve done in a long time and I did it only because you and I subsribe to the same philosphy on “paying it forward”. And, that’s something I can wrap my arms around.

    I am honored to know you and I thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to come on your Friday Podcast Series.

    You made the interview not only painless, but enjoyable. It’s always a pleasure to talk to you.

    And, when I get those dates set for this year’s AffiliateMarketersGiveBack.com 60-mile walk to fight Breast Cancer, I’ll be banging on your door to drag you with us :)
