Tell Us a Little About Yourself:

How long have you been at Adscend Media and what is your role at the company? I have been with Adscend Media for about two years. Currently, I am a business development manager, and work mostly with managing publishers and network accounts.

Are you able to explain to your friends and family what you do? Yes. Usually there are multiple questions, but we wind up getting there!

What do you like most about your job? The dynamic environment. Every day is a very new day and there are new challenges every day. And with those challenges come new opportunities to grow skills and become better educated. It is an exciting field.

How would you recommend someone get started in affiliate marketing? I would recommend to be as active and as hands-on as possible. Networking, being active on forums, actively keeping updated on industry news, and reading press releases are all great ways to get started and get familiar with industry buzz words and day-to-day processes. Creating your own publishing channel can also help you increase your knowledge at your own pace as well.

If you could give only one piece of advice to your affiliates, what would that be? Pay as much attention as possible to daily communication. In your daily conversations and email exchanges, there is a lot of information and potential growth opportunities for your business. Whether it’s communication between a business partner or a user from your website – carefully considering all details in your daily communications to identify where there might be growth potential can help you grow your business.

What do you like to do for fun when you aren’t working? I enjoy listening to music and playing guitar.
