Performance marketing is at the forefront of the mobile revolution. In 2012 Affiliate Window anticipates it will drive more than two million transactions through handsets and tablets. As a proven acquisition channel the pressure is now on, more than ever before, to fully understand the scope and range of activity. This session will look at mobile from all angles. Building on Affiliate Window’s analysis conducted throughout 2011 and into 2012 we will kick off by showing the extent of mobile in the channel flagging handset trends, key sectors driving sales and those affiliates who are forging ahead. We’ll then showcase some affiliate success stories, the practicalities of working with mobile devices as well as look into where mobile is heading including the wider online to offline picture. The session aims to offer guidance to advertisers and insight for affiliates keen to take advantage of a channel that is revolutionising our shopping habits.
