That quickly moved to vacation properties and places that were not normally occupied by the owner, and then agents appeared to were managing several of properties at once. While Airbnb still very much has a lot of properties and hosts who fall into the first three groups, it needs to turbo charge its growth to really fill out its $31 billion valuation, which in theory puts it between Hilton and Marriott in terms of market cap. And this is one of the ways it hopes to get there: by making it much easier to list and manage properties, bring more eyeballs to its inventory, and quickly convert interested browsers into bookings.

(This would make a lot of sense: Groupon itself has been working on expanding its travel and local experiences business as part of its effort to diversify beyond daily deals from local retailers. Recent moves involve a partnership with Viator to boost its inventory of local activities, and acquiring LivingSocial, which had also reoriented itself to focus on that sector after its own daily deals business took a nosedive.)

You’re obviously wondering why I pulled this app. The biggest reason is because it required a lot of upkeep based on how I built it – I had to manually update the XML and keep the installations fresh. By the end of the first week I was getting a lot of people who were pissed that the product prices weren’t accurate – when BB changes their pricing on the master XML feed, I would have to re-export it, modify it for my own structure, then upload it to my own site. This included sales and promotions.
As an affiliate, you must add the LinkShare Affiliate Tracking Code to your queries to receive credit for a customer purchase.

The LinkShare Affiliate Tracking Code is the 11 character alphanumeric code behind “id=” and before “&offerid=” in the link code.
The implementation of affiliate marketing on the internet relies heavily on various techniques built into the design of many web-pages and websites, and the use of calls to external domains to track user actions (click tracking, Ad Sense) and to serve up content (advertising) to the user. Most of this activity adds time and is generally a nuisance to the casual web-surfer and is seen as visual clutter. Various countermeasures have evolved over time to prevent or eliminate the appearance of advertising when a web-page is rendered. Third party programs (Ad-Aware, Adblock Plus, Spybot, pop-up blockers, etc.) and particularly, the use of a comprehensive HOSTS file can effectively eliminate the visual clutter and the extra time and bandwidth needed to render many web pages. The use of specific entries in the HOSTS file to block these well-known and persistent marketing and click-tracking domains can also aid in reducing a system's exposure to malware by preventing the content of infected advertising or tracking servers to reach a user's web-browser.
There are several ways to find an affiliate program that provides offers for a specific business vertical. The key is to apply multiple techniques to eliminate any possible bias. The place to begin your research would be Affiliate Networks directories, such as the one that mobyaffiliates hosts. To evaluate multiple networks you may pick up from a directory, you need to find people’s feedback on these networks on places like Quora, online forums and LinkedIn. Make sure you tried multiple search queries on these resources to find as much feedback as possible, avoid comments that are strictly negative or positive, genuine feedback is usually in between these two extremes. On LinkedIn you can find both affiliate networks company employees to ask questions and groups dedicated to affiliate industry. But again – don’t expect an affiliate network employees to share with you any cons of the company they work for, approach these people to figure out in general – do they provide offers for a particular vertical or not.

Really interesting post from Carter. I’ve been cautious about moving into Apps, primarily because I don’t know how to make them myself and I didn’t want to get taken in by all the hype. But, Carter’s mentioned two things that I hadn’t read before. One, that an app that is essentially a store with affiliate links – sounds great. Two, apps are great ways to build lists and drive traffic. Excellent info. I’m off to download Carter’s free e-book. Seeya!
