Ft. Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) April 8, 2010
Following the announcement that Schaaf Consulting, an affiliate program management firm, announced Wednesday that it had acquired Internet marketing firm PartnerCentric, Inc., the CEOs of both companies, Brook Schaaf and Linda Woods, will talk about the new company, Schaaf-PartnerCentric in a special edition of the Affiliate Marketing Insider podcast Thursday April 8th at 3pm Eastern Time.
They will discuss the history of their companies, the decision to join forces, the vision for the new company and what it means for merchants, affiliates and the industry at large.
Linda will remain with the new company as a strategic advisor, but will step away from the radio program she has hosted since 2008. Fill-in host Wade Sisson will serve as the permanent host of “Affiliate Marketing Insider”.
She will be leaving the program following a 60-episode run, leaving behind a clutch of highlights. Guests who appeared on the program have been those whom Linda has recognized as the “whales” of the affiliate marketing space. They have included the likes of Pepperjam’s CEO Kris Jones, and Super Affiliate James Martell. Other highlights have included a two-part roundtable interview with the Women of Affiliate Marketing thanks to inspiration from a front page article on the April 2009 issue of Feedfront Magazine.
The program has also gone on the road for a number of memorable shows including a live broadcast on location from Affiliate Summit West 2009 where she featured a two-part roundtable with her fellow panelists following their Affiliate Marketing in 2009 session, as well as broadcasts from Commission Junction University and Affiliate Convention 2009 in Los Angeles, CA.
