I just came across the announcement of the Commission Junction 2007 Horizon Awards winners.
And the winners are…
People (shown an enthusiastic commitment to pay-for-performance marketing)
Advertiser: Theresa Tao, ShoeBuy.com
Publisher: Craig Cassata, MrRebates.com
Greatness (proven to have exceptional performance increases over the previous year and who inspire greatness in others)
Advertiser: HP Home and Home Office Store
Publisher: Liquid Apogee
Innovation (in appreciation for their support to Commission Junction and their commitment to people in the industry)
Advertiser: MidPhase Services
Publisher: Move Marketing
Global Vision (action, strategy and initiatives best reflect a commitment to realizing the global potential of affiliate marketing)
Apparently, Lisa wasn’t too happy with the entertainment at the awards:
The dinner â€œentertainmentâ€ was Kevin Joyce, a CJ account director on the publisher development team. His act involved way too much talking and nobody was really listening. He totally dissed Revenue and the Spider for some missteps about CJâ€™s reorganization announcement in July. But at least the Spider is usually humorous and doesnâ€™t stoop to bad puns or bad magic tricks. Oh wellâ€¦.
Meow. Love ya, Lisa.
