I first met Carolyn “CTang” Kmet in Miami at Affiliate Summit 2007. She was with ShareASale on the time, and I used to be harassing Brian Littleton, the community’s founder, about needing affiliate managers for the Kowabunga community. I had been studying weblog posts and following Carolyn’s concepts concerning the trade and advised him I wanted somebody identical to her. He flatly refused to interact in my banter, and I don’t blame him.
Following her tenure at ShareASale, Carolyn was the CMO of a Canada-based full-service e-commerce company. She has additionally led affiliate marketing online efforts for corporations corresponding to Groupon, Orbitz and the Bradford Change.
In 2018, Carolyn was honored with the Affiliate Summit Pinnacle Legend award for her contributions to the efficiency advertising trade. She can be the recipient of the Affiliate Summit Pinnacle Award for Affiliate Supervisor of the Yr (2010), New Advertiser of the Yr from Fee Junction (2011) and Small Enterprise Influencer Progress Champion (2014).
