Econsultancy and A4u have this week launched the 2011 Affiliate Census aimed at the thousands of UK affiliates who drive billions of pounds in revenue for advertisers each year.

The research, sponsored by Commission Junction and Argos, follows similar reports published in 2007 and 2009.

Those affiliates completing the confidential online questionnaire will get access to a free copy of the resulting report (normally worth £250) when it is published in October.

The 10-minute survey is aimed only at affiliates operating in the UK marketplace.

Econsultancy’s Research Director Linus Gregoriadis said: “Since it was first launched four years ago, the Affiliate Census has become established as the most influential research available into the publishers who play such a vital role within the UK e-commerce environment. This year, we are excited to be running the census in partnership with the 65,000-strong Affiliates4u Community.”

Matthew Wood, Founder of A4u, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Econsultancy for this year’s UK affiliate census. Through data collection and analysis it’s fantastic to be able to assist all stakeholders within the sector, effectively allowing advertisers to fine tune their affiliate marketing activity and match their future strategic plans to the desires and direction of their key publishers.”

Florian Gramshammer, UK Country Manager, Commission Junction, said: “The affiliate census is a vital tool for the industry. Affiliates often sit at the forefront of innovation and as the channel continues to rapidly diversify and grow, it is of paramount importance to gauge affiliate opinions on a regular basis. As such, we see this as an important piece of research to add our support to.”

The deadline for taking part in the survey is Friday 2nd September. The findings will be previewed in October this year at A4uexpo London, Europe’s largest affiliate and performance marketing conference.
