“I am very pleased to be named among such an impressive list of affiliate marketing industry experts and professionals, this is an exciting opportunity to work with such an esteemed panel.” Stated Heather Paulson.
Boulder, CO (PRWEB) November 4, 2010
Heather Paulson, President and Founder of Paulson Management Group, Inc. has been named to the Blue-Ribbon Panel of performance marketing industry experts by Revenue Performance magazine. The Blue-Ribbon Panel was formed to provide guidance during the development of Revenue Performance magazine’s BLUE BOOK Top 20 rankings of the leading CPA and affiliate marketing networks. The results were published November 3rd 2010.
The BLUE BOOK Top 20 is an independent ranking of the best CPA and affiliate networks, published bi-annually by Revenue Performance. Winners are determined through surveys gathered from over 5,000 publishers and advertisers, and input from the Blue-Ribbon Panel of 14 industry experts. More than 500 different networks were considered in the evaluation process. This year, ClickBank was chosen as the top ranked affiliate network in the performance marketing industry, and Epic Direct was selected as the top ranked CPA network. Other networks making a strong showing in the BLUE BOOK Top 20 include Never Blue, oneNetworkDirect, ShareASale, Market Leverage, Affiliate Window, Commission Junction, and LinkShare.
Members of the Blue-Ribbon Panel were carefully chosen from a cross-section of the performance marketing industry. Paulson shares the honor with 13 other experts in their fields, including Jeff Kamikow, President of Pulse360, Brendan J. Smith, CEO/Founder of Motive Interactive, and Chad P. French, President/CEO of PeerFly. The views of each panel member were evaluated and aggregated to make up 20% of the final weighted score for each network in the ranking process. Although some networks were represented by members of the Blue-Ribbon Panel, the procedure was designed to ensure that those networks had no competitive advantage.
“The Blue-Ribbon Panel of experts provides valuable insights into the state of play in the performance marketing industry. These are people with years of experience at all levels, as publishers, advertisers, program managers and network executives,” said Chris Trayhorn, founder of Revenue Performance magazine and CEO of mThink. “The BLUE BOOK Top 20 rankings help advertisers and publishers cut through the clutter to find the quality networks that are best suited to their needs. The Blue-Ribbon Panel plays an important part in ensuring the rankings can be a trusted reference for everyone in the affiliate marketing industry.”
