For those of you who are always fussing at me for not tooting my own horn enough (you know who you are), this post is for you. I was excited to learn that AffiliateFairPlay is a finalist for LinkShareâ€™s Golden Link Awards for Most Vocal Advocate. Toot toot!
Winners will be announced June 19th at the Golden Link Award ceremony to be held at the Cipriani. The pictures on their site really donâ€™t do justice to the venue. If youâ€™ve never attended the Golden Link Award, you should definitely consider attending. Linkshare goes all out for the event and itâ€™s definitely top notch. Iâ€™m not certain, but it appears some tickets are still available. It is held the evening before the Linkshare Symposium, whose theme this year is Performance Marketing 2.0: Innovation & Collaboration.
Alas, much to my chagrin, I will not be able to personally attend the event. However, I am extremely pleased that Angel Djambazov will be in attendance representing AffiliateFairPlay. đź™‚ If you are going to the Golden Link Awards, be sure to seek Angel out and ask him anything you would like to about AFP.
