One of the keynote speakers, Parul Bhargava said, “India Affiliate Summit is an event very close to my heart - being the only affiliate/performance-centric event in the country. The event historically has experienced great brainstorming and networking by and with stalwarts of affiliates from our country who contribute to the global industry. Since the pandemic restricted our travels, it's amazing to see how IAMAI is working so hard to ensure the affiliate industry comes together virtually every year with great insights on how affiliate trends are emerging.”

"Indian e-commerce has seen massive growth and a shift in consumer behaviour over the last two years," said Rohan Bhargava. "With D2C brands gaining popularity, CashKaro and EarnKaro have witnessed the same trends in sales and high ROI we drive for our partners like MamaEarth, MCaffeine and Ustraa. Cashback, rewards and affiliate programs are definitely the place to be right now for real results. I am really excited to explore this further with other players in the space at the India Affiliate Summit."

“Having the second-largest e-commerce market in the world and with digital shoppers increasing, India has seen immense growth in affiliate marketing in the last one-and-a-half year,” Admitad Affiliate India’s country manager, Neha Kulwal remarked. “With inventories like content sites, influencers, loyalty partners being capitalised by brands via affiliate marketing, it is imperative for brands to launch their affiliate programs to maximise growth. In line with e-commerce, other sectors such as fintech, online education, and many more have added affiliate channels into their advertising mix.”

“Affiliate marketing has become an integral part of our growth strategy and the event is a great platform to discuss ideas and best practices. The affiliate ecosystem in India is still at a nascent stage. As the ecosystem matures, media tie-ups could transform into strategic win-win business partnerships in the future,” added Aditya Satpute.
