Brook Schaaf, Founder and CEO of Schaaf-PartnerCentric, spoke on “Daily Program Management: Recruitment, Optimization, Compliance” at the Affiliate Summit Meetup in Austin, TX on February 28, 2012.
Brook talked to the crowd about OPMs, the two halves of the affiliate marketing empire, tracking solutions, recruitment, optimization, and compliance.
The meetup took place at Beets Café, and while I am an unabashed carnivore, I was happy with the “Raw Reuben” (sunflower flatbread layered with 1000 island dressing, kraut, marinated portabella mushrooms, caramelized onions, and Swiss cashew cheeze. Served with beets salad and veggie chips) I had for dinner.
Thanks a lot to Brook and everybody that came out for some raw foods and piping hot affiliate marketing information.
