I’m in Las Vegas at the Affiliate Summit today. It has been two years since I was last in Vegas and not much has changed. I think one of the most interesting things about Vegas is that, if you are inside a hotel, it is nearly impossible to figure out what time it is without looking at a watch/smartphone.
Anyways, I am here because the affiliate space has become a very interesting opportunity for Dwolla. Not only affiliate, but all types of payouts (customer rebates, survey incentives, fantasy sports, marketplaces). Anytime you need to pay out to a large amount of people, a quick and cheap way to do so is by using Dwolla. We’ve been seeing many companies paying with Dwolla instead of sending checks. So the affiliate industry is a logical space to spend time and effort.
You can check a short blog post I wrote for the Dwolla blog about the event and why we are attending.
This is my first time here and I’m not so familiar with the event, so if you know anyone going that is friendly, please connect me!
Also, if you or someone you know is at a company, paying out to a group of people, and looking for a cheaper way to do it, send them my way. I’d love to connect!
