Over the past years, we had a number of legendary marketers keynote AM Days conferences. In 2012 it was David Szetela and Brad Geddes (both: paid search), Jim Sterne (web analytics) and Roger Dooley (neuromarketing) in 2013, Bryan Eisenberg (conversion optimization and persona marketing) in 2014.

Somehow, though, up until now we have not had a major SEO figure deliver a keynote address at Affiliate Management Days. Things are going to change this year!

I am honored to announce that our eighth conference, AM Days 2016 (on April 4-5 in San Francisco) is going to be keynoted by one of the world’s top SEO authorities, founder of Moz, Rand Fishkin himself.

Chances are that you already know who he is; but for those who don’t, here is his brief bio:

Rand Fishkin is founder, former CEO and now Wizard of Moz (formerly SEOmoz), a leader in the field of search engine optimization tools, resources & community. In 2009, he co-authored the Art of SEO from O’Reilly Media and was named among the 30 Best Young Tech Entrepreneurs Under 30 by BusinessWeek.

Rand has been written about in The Seattle Times, Newsweek and the New York Times among others, and keynoted conferences on search around the world. He’s particularly passionate about the SEOmoz blog, read by tens of thousands of search professionals each day. In his minuscule spare time, Rand enjoys the company of his amazing wife, Geraldine. [source]

At Affiliate Management Days 2016 Rand Fishkin will talk about the (numerous) challenges that present-day digital marketing contexts expose us to, and what online marketers can (and should do) to overcome these [more here].

Anyone who is serious about affiliate marketing has undoubtedly been following the 2015 news on eBay Enterprise closely.

I, in turn, am super excited to have them express interest and return to sponsor our San Francisco conference in 2016.

The relationship between AM Days and eBay Enterprise started in 2014 when they gave our show a try on the Bronze Level and the company’s co-founder and CEO, Michael Jones, participated on the conference’s keynote panel on The Future Affiliate Network. In 2015 they returned to sponsor Affiliate Management Days again, but this time two levels higher — on the Gold Level, sponsoring also one of the two tracks of breakout sessions.

In 2016 they will be back again, and once more on the Gold Level!

Here is a bit more information about what they are and what they do:

eBay Enterprise Affiliate Network (formerly PepperJam Exchange) is known throughout the affiliate marketing industry for their high-touch services combined with unmatched results. Leveraging exclusive distribution, innovative solutions and strategic thought leadership in performance marketing, we build solutions for advertisers that bridge affiliate marketing with online, offline, mobile and social attribution.
