  • Start the year with these affiliate marketing resolutions
    With 2012 behind them, affiliate marketers have an opportunity to learn from the past as they strive to improve in the new year. Marketer Jennifer Ledbetter shares four resolutions aimed at helping marketers save time and make money, starting with doing at least one thing each day to make the business better. "Affiliate marketing is not about algorithms or black and white animals -- it's about people. Stick to that, and the rest will take care of itself," Ledbetter writes.

  • Privacy concerns could hold back Facebook ad network
    Facebook's efforts to create a mobile ad network could be held back by concerns over the network's privacy practices, agency executives say. The network has put the network on the back burner for now, and the future is in doubt, as media buyers are unlikely to want to commit until privacy issues are ironed out, explains Christian Juhl, president of Razorfish West.

  • Online sales tax debate rages on
    The debate over whether online retailers should be required to collect sales tax didn't die with Congress' failure to pass the Marketplace Fairness Act last year. In 2013, lawmakers are expected to again take up the issue, which often pits online retailers against bricks-and-mortar merchants who support using sales tax collections to level the playing field and state governments eager to raise revenue.
