What is Affiliate Academy?

Our Affiliate Academy is specifically designed for experienced Digital Marketing Account Managers. In a small group setting, participants are immersed into the world of Affiliate Marketing through a combination of formal training, job shadowing, and on-the-job training over the course of 3 months.

By the end of the program, Affiliate Academy graduates have the in-depth knowledge required to oversee their own portfolio of clients, including strategically managing publishers, networks, and clients, and hold the title of Account Manager on our Affiliate team.

As a digital marketer who was eager to make a career move and learn an entirely new channel of marketing, I couldn’t be more grateful to AP for hosting the Affiliate Academy. From day one, I was fully supported, encouraged and armed with the tools I needed to succeed. The AP training team was there every step of the way both guiding me and asking for constant feedback and input. I graduated the academy fully ready to dive into the world of affiliate marketing – all thanks to the amazing people, culture and genius of the Acceleration Partners team.”
