SELLING YOUR BOSS ON

CONFERENCE ATTENDANCE Sarah Beeskow Blay Director of Client Services

There are many benefits to attending conferences and networking with business partners face-to-face that you could emphasize. I’ve listed three that I feel provide the most value to businesses: 1. Sessions/Education: Conference sessions can provide some great education on any new technologies, issues, or techniques in the industry. These are all items that can help an organization grow. They also often are full of best practices and training on processes that can directly benefit

job tasks. 2. Networking: The power of personal face-to-face communication is undeniable. The ability to find commonality and bond through small talk and read body language are two benefits that are difficult to replicate via email. Meeting individuals in person also gives you the benefit of:

3. Exhibit Hall: Meeting with potential vendors can lay the ground work in identifying prospective partnerships. Often times there may be competing vendors, so you can easily compare different organizations within one space. Once you have carefully weighed the expenses and benefits of conference attendance, you are now ready to present and sell your proposal to management.

you can thoroughly research any deals on air fare, car rental, or hotels. Conferences will also often have an early bird rate for registration, so be sure to check out the conference website and any related social media for any other special promotions. Once you know what the cost is going to be, you can provide full disclosure on the expense and present the key benefits that you will reap from attending the show. You can lay out exactly what you will be able to contribute to the company in return for their investment. This can be a bit difficult to quantify. However, if you are able to point to specific skills, contacts made, or knowledge gained you will be able to follow up on that once the conference is complete and the extra business starts rolling in.

UPDATES

FROM THE TECH TEAM

2013 MERCHANT TOOLS:

NEW FEATURES FOR YOU! Ryan Frey

ShareASale Tech Lead

In 2013, ShareASale has maintained their commitment to adding new tools for our Merchants to use that will benefit their affiliate marketing program, here is a small sampling of the tools we have rolled out.

#1

MOBILE TRACKING: Merchants now have the ability to track in-app purchases as well as other app-based events.

#2

NEW CUSTOMER TRACKING: Merchants can add an additional parameter to their tracking pixel in order to track new vs. returning customers. Once this parameter is in place, commission rules and bonuses can be setup to reward Affiliates who refer new customers.

CONTACT SHAREASALE@SHAREASALE.COM TO LEARN MORE!

32


#3 SHAREASALE WIKI: Wiki.ShareASale.com is a portal designed to allow anyone, from the seasoned vet or marketing newbie, to ask questions and receive answers from our expert community.

#4

COUPON CODE TRACKING: Merchants can adapt their tracking pixel to report when a sale came through a specific coupon code. This allows a Merchant to setup custom commission rates or bonuses that will be awarded when a customer uses said coupon code during checkout.

#5

CUSTOM STOREFRONTS: Clubs, Teams, School Groups - they all need a way to easily take advantage of the buying power of their individual networks without all the hassle of building and maintaining Affiliate Websites. Utilizing Storefronts, these small fundraising groups can have a fully functional Affiliate site in a matter of minutes.
