Affiliate Marketing Committee



The Affiliate Marketing Committee is being established to educate the industry
as well as create guidelines and best practices for Affiliate Marketing as it
relates to Mobile.



The initial priority will be to create a cross
-
carrier guideline for affiliate jump
pages, at the request of the US Consumer Best Practices Committee. In an
effort to grow the space by providing further clarity to the affiliate space, the
committee will then work to establish educational materials to define “affiliate
marketing” as well as develop broader best practice guidelines for affiliate
marketers in the United States.



The Committee will also monitor and discuss changes in the regulatory
environment as it relates to mobile affiliate marketer networks.
