Sponsormob’s acceptance “speech” for the Affiliate Marketing AwardsApril 20th, 2011 by Talya
As you may already know, last week Sponsormob took home two awards - Best Mobile Campaign and Best Affiliate Innovation – at the Affiliate Marketing Awards, which took place during ad:tech San Francisco. The awards were hosted by Murray Newlands and were created to celebrate the best in the affiliate marketing industry. We are truly honored to have been recognized at this event.
We at Sponsormob want to take a few moments to thank those who made these awards possible. First of all, our partners – including our affiliates and advertisers – are the ones who make things happen. We appreciate the trust that they place in us, and we look forward to continuing to grow and develop our working relationships. Performance marketing in the mobile space is still in its infancy, and we are excited about what the future holds!
We would also like to thank our team for working hard to ensure that campaigns run smoothly and that our partners are able to benefit from the mobile space and expand their business. Our success is directly related to the effort put forth by our team, and we are very thankful to be working with such an amazing group of talented individuals.
Many thanks also to Murray Newlands, the awards founder and host. Great event!
Sponsormob’s experience at ad:tech San Francisco 2011April 19th, 2011 by Talya
Several of us recently returned from San Francisco, California, where we exhibited at ad:tech San Francisco. The event was excellent, as it was last year, and we made many new contacts and were able to meet with several of our existing partners. We were also very happy that this year, unlike last year, our entire team made it to the show, thanks to no erupting volcanoes in Iceland or anywhere else. We had a great time and are already looking forward to spending time in San Francisco again next year!
Some of the highlights of the event were …
The Affiliate Marketing Awards
Hosted by Murray Newlands, the Affiliate Marketing Awards were introduced this year during ad:tech and were created to highlight the best in affiliate marketing. Sponsormob won awards for both Best Mobile Campaign and Best Affiliate Innovation. This was a tremendous honor and we are pleased to have been a part of the awards. As there were no official acceptance speeches for the awards, we will be blogging our “speech” within in the next several days, so keep an eye out for this! Pictures of the event have also already been posted and are worth taking a look at (if only to see our smiling faces after winning two awards!).
The networking parties are always a big part of any trade show, and ad:tech was no exception. We enjoyed getting out to several of the parties, including Yahoo’s big bash, the party hosted by Engage at The Ambassador, and Advertise.com’s party, among others. The Affiliate Marketing Awards were also a good opportunity to network before the show started.
Business trips of course should never be all work and no play, so we made sure to get out and enjoy San Francisco while we were there as well. For several people on our team, this was a first visit to San Fran. So we packed a lot of sight-seeing into a short period of time and had a great time doing it. We were able to visit Alcatraz, the Golden Gate bridge (one of our guys actually biked it!), Sausalito, and of course, the sea lions at Pear 39. Good eats were on the menu as well, and we enjoyed everything from burgers and milkshakes to Greek food.
So yes, this year’s ad:tech trip was a definite success and as always, we are looking forward to next year’s ad:tech San Francisco! Pictures of the event can be seen on our Flickr page.

ad:tech San Francisco 2011March 8th, 2011 by Talya
Next Month we will be exhibiting at one of the best events out there for digital and online marketing – ad:tech San Francisco. This was a very successful event for us last year, even though many of us could not make it due to the volcano in Iceland which grounded flights throughout Europe. Barring any unforeseen weather emergencies, we will be flying to San Francisco from Berlin to exhibit April 12-13 at the Moscone Center for ad:tech San Francisco.
Several of our staff will be at ad:tech San Francisco, including our directors, Peter Glaeser and Jet Patel, Johannes Zimmermann (sales manager), Anne Wiesner (advertiser manager), Verena Witkowski (publisher manager), and myself, Talya Shoup Burnett (PR manager). If you would like to meet up with us, please contact me to set up a meeting (email@example.com), or plan on stopping by our booth, #1304.
We are looking forward to seeing you there!
