Adult Affiliate Marketing in 2017, where is it heading?

RUNNING ANY ADULT TRAFFIC?

I just returned from Prague the other day, where I attended The European Summit (TES) Conference. TES was the first affiliate conference I ever attended, and I keep on returning there ever since … been there like 5 or 6 times already. This conference started as an ADULT only event, but for the past few years, the organizers tried to venture out to more areas of digital marketing.

However, it still has the adult feel to it, with all the hot and barely dressed models walking around, and waste majority of the exhibitors are adult companies too. Most of the affiliates that you can meet here are adult affiliates as well. That’s why I keep on attending this event from time to time, to stay in touch with the adult industry and to see where it is going.

SO WHERE IS THE ADULT INDUSTRY GOING AT THE END OF 2017?

For the past few years, the whole adult traffic segment was dominated with MOBILE… it was everywhere, mobile traffic networks, mobile affiliate networks … mobile this, mobile that … And this has changed this year. No more huge booths from the market leaders, they been present still, but on a much smaller scale.

It’s clearly visible that the regulations have hit the Carrier Billing Adult offers pretty hard. Large part of them moved to the mainstream side of things, where the regulations ain’t that heavy yet. Or let’s just say, mainstream offers can run in more GEOs than adult products – think about the Arab world or some large Asian countries.

I’ve seen the traditional, cover-all Affiliate Networks, trying to get some more business going with the adult crowd …

Affiliates are taking over MOSCOW – Event hosted by the STM Forum and Leadbit.

Affiliate events and conferences became very popular lately, since they offer an excellent opportunity to meet fellow marketers, find out what the latest trends are … or just get wasted with other affiliates, the call is yours 🙂

US, Western Europe or Asia usually host the main events, but this time, the fun is coming to “Eastern Europe”!

For the first time in history, Moscow will host a large affiliate conference and the organizers made sure it’s gonna be a blast. Speeches, ton’s of networking options, drinks, food and an exceptional party to make it a complete package … it will all be there.

The event will take place on the 30th of March, so mark your calendars and plan the flights, it’s only two weeks away!

How do I know it’s gonna rock? Cause it’s hosted by the STM Forum folks, do I have to say more? 🙂 STM Forum has been recognized as the premier resource for the Affiliate Marketers for quite some time already, you’d have a hard time finding a better one. And I’m not saying that because I a moderator over there! 🙂

Did you know STM is also behind the two most popular Affiliate Conference of the world : Affiliate World Europe (AWE) and Asia (AWA)? This alone should be a guarantee that the Moscow even will be awesome too.

AWA and AWE are huge multiple-day events, but not everyone has to like that. And that’s why you should attend the Moscow event in case you’re one of those who don’t like crowded places. It’s gonna be smaller and 1 day only.

And the best part : Entrance is FREE for all quality affiliates. Thanks to Leadbit.Com, who is the main sponsor and organizer of the event, the entrance is free. Leadbit will even give a way a Porsche Cayenne to one of their affiliates at the conference and you can still take part in the contest, check this for details : http://porsche.leadbit.com/
