Tyla Cobb (Account Director) and Tess Waresmith (Senior Manager) have significant experience launching, expanding and managing global affiliate marketing programs.

In her nearly four years at Acceleration Partners, Tyla’s managed both domestic and global affiliate marketing programs for large, global brands, including Target, adidas, Reebok, Pier One and Tiny Prints. As an Account Director, she oversees the performance of global teams managing affiliate programs in multiple counties.

Tess Waresmith is a Senior Marketing Manager at Acceleration Partners. While at AP, she’s had the unique opportunity to live and work in Asia (Singapore) while helping one of AP’s largest clients get their affiliate program off the ground.

On this third and final episode of our three-part Taking Your Affiliate Program series, we discuss what companies should be looking at in the first six to 12 months to assess performance and address challenges.


This episode is Part Three of a three-part Outperform series on “Taking Your Affiliate Program Global.”

Although this series barely scratches the surface, we thought that the best way to convey some of the key aspects of a global affiliate marketing program launch and expansion would be to break it down into three parts:

Part One: The important things to consider and do BEFORE you go global.

Part Two: What to know and do AFTER you determine there’s a viable opportunity to take your affiliate program global.

Part Three: What you should be looking at and evaluating in the months following the global expansion of your affiliate program.
