The new agreement between Expedia and Tradedoubler broadens the companies’ existing relationship beyond 18 European countries into Latin America, and will now include online marketing services for both web and mobile channels. Expedia and Hotels.com will also continue to use Tradedoubler’s industry-leading affiliate marketing technology platform, which should serve to optimize the efficiency and effectiveness of its partner marketing.
According to EuroMonitor research, online travel in Western European countries is forecast to grow by an average of six per cent a year, growing from 16% of travel bookings in 2012 to 33% in 2016.
“Travel is one of Tradedoubler’s strongest verticals and we are delighted to be continuing to work alongside the fantastic teams at Expedia and Hotels.com,”said Jon Lord, Group Director, International Sales & Client Development, Tradedoubler.
“Our long-term partnership will ensure we can manage growth targets effectively as we continue to develop and innovate on the network. This includes international market expansion, developing mobile sale channels and building new tools and technology for publishers. After great growth over the past few years, we expect to take the programme to the next level in run-up to the summer peak in 2012,” continued Lord.
“Tradedoubler’s technology platform has proved very effective and we anticipate that their strategy of diversifying the range of publishers in the affiliate network will help us reach new customers and revenues,” said Sabrina Fiorini, Head of EMEA Partner Marketing, Expedia Worldwide.
“Tradedoubler’s ability to incentivise its network to drive more traffic via mobile, and intelligently analyse buying behavior, patterns, and trends makes a valuable contribution to Hotels.com’s growth on the increasingly important mobile channel”, said Josie Shah, Director, Affiliate Partnerships, Hotels.com.

More than 8,000 advertisers and publishers participated in the 2011 AffiliateBenchmarks Research Survey. And this year, AffiliateBenchmarks wants to top that number.
“The AffiliateBenchmarks Research Study is an invaluable tool to anyone involved in affiliate marketing,” says NetX founding partner Peter Figueredo. “This study demystifies the affiliate marketing landscape by giving insight into the affiliate marketer’s profile, industry trends and affiliate marketing best practices.”
Participants who complete the full survey will receive a complimentary copy of the finished AffiliateBenchmark report. All survey participants will receive their results within two weeks after the survey closes.
“We created this survey because there is not a lot of available data on the affiliate marketing industry,” Figueredo says. “We feel this survey does a good job of covering a multitude of topics relevant to affiliate marketing – and the data can be used to improve affiliate marketing strategies.”
The annual AffiliateBenchmarks Research Study is open to companies of all sizes. Google Affiliate Network, eBay, Amazon.com, Commission Junction and LinkShare are just a few of the prominent industry leaders that participate in this annual report. The insights generated from the survey are essential to developing successful best practices, business strategies and relationships.
The AffiliateBenchmarks Research Study is open to both US and international companies, and runs from June 25 to August 25, 2012. Advertisers and publishers are encouraged to take the quick survey before the August 25 deadline.

The program was launched by two industry leaders, David Sharpe and David Wood who are masters at creating automated sales funnels that sell without the help of the affiliate. David Wood has a rags to riches story going from living in a Van, to making over $30,000 in a single day. David Sharpe is also a master sales person having had similar results with the program.
With Empower Network, affiliates get access to a fully optimized blogging platform for $25 a month. They can upgrade to the Inner Circle Training for an additional $100 a month where they get access to weekly calls from 7 figure income earners, top marketers and trainers.
The Empower Network offers two training programs:
a). The Costa Rica Intensive for $500
This includes the best of the best marketing training pulled from a weekend retreat in Costa Rica
b). The 15k Formula for $997
9 videos interviewing the top income earners in the program that reveal their marketing secrets on how they earn $1000 a day or more.
Affiliates can start with Empower Network for only $25 and upgrade to the Inner Circle whenever they want - making the program an easy market entry and easy to market to the masses. The two training products The Costa Rica Intensive and the 15k Formula are both optional. If an affiliate has purchased these products, they collect 100% of the commissions for reselling them. If they have not purchased the products but someone they enroll purchases them, those commissions roll-up to their referrer.
The marketing plan for the Empower Network is also unique. The 1st, 3rd and 5th commissions are kept by the affiliate and the 2nd, 4th and 6th go to the referrer. Then, every 5th commission thereafter goes to the referrer.
As a person enrolls new reps into the program, they end up with multiple income feeders that are sending them pass-up commissions in the program. This makes the program very desirable for both conventional marketers and internet marketers that understand the power of the internet.
People with no internet experience can get access to valuable training information they need to create content, generate leads and create both passive and residual income.
Empower Network currently ranks at the 782 most trafficked site on the web. With so many people blogging on the platform, it makes it an authority site and allows for much higher ranking on Google.
