New York, NY (PRWEB) January 16, 2007
Jamie Birch, Director of Affiliate Relations at Converseon, has been nominated by his peers as one of the three finalists in the Affiliate Manager of the Year category of the Affiliate Summit Pinnacle Awards, to be presented at the Affiliate Summit 2007 West in Las Vegas on January 22, 2007.
"It is a great honor to be among such a high caliber group of finalists," said Birch. "Affiliate marketing is an exciting and challenging industry and to be considered for this award is one of the highlights of my career."
In Jamie's position at Converseon, he coordinates an impressive number of successful affiliate programs for prestigious clients including Hilton Hotels, Factory Card & Party Outlet, Taylor Gifts, Mikasa, MyWinesDirect and Edmund Scientific.
According to Birch, the secret ingredients of Converseon's exceptional performance in affiliate marketing services are relationship building and marketing channels integration. "We take a very proactive approach to managing the affiliate programs of our clients. We spend a great deal of time building relationships with our affiliates that, over time, yield fruit for our clients and our affiliate partners. We strive to provide our affiliate partners with the information and collateral they need to be successful with each of our programs, and we keep them updated via dedicated weblogs hosted on ConverseonAffiliates.com. Because Converseon also manages many other aspects of our clients' online marketing, we can work with affiliates in many new avenues and in a more integrated way with other marketing channels."
Prior to Converseon, Jamie managed a multi-million dollar affiliate program and search campaign for Coldwater Creek, a top-5 national women's apparel retailer. He was able to generate a high volume of sales and incremental revenue through creative partnerships, efficient promotions and product placement strategies with top partners as well as small niche affiliates. He has also held positions with a number of e-commerce and online marketing companies where he focused on performance marketing and customer retention and activation initiatives.
When Jamie is not working, blogging at revenews.com/jamiebirch or spending time with his wife and three children, you may find him playing his guitar or training. He currently competes in several triathlons a year as well as cycling races. In June 2007 he is planning on attempting the Ironman Coeur d'Alene tournament, as well as the Spokane Marathon in October.
