Private forums launched for affiliate managers
We are pleased to announce that we have created a new private forum area open just to affiliate program managers. There is one forum open to all affiliate program managers
and another open only to sponsor affiliate program managers
We are working to give all GPWA affiliate program managers access to these discussion areas. If you are an affiliate manager and don't have access to these areas please send a private message to
or email him
and he will make sure you are given appropriate access.
We hope the new forums will enable affiliate program managers to exchange ideas, share best practices, and work together to help make the industry more successful in the same way that GPWA portal webmasters collaborate and work together in our forums.
