Affiliate Compliance and All Things Regulation

The affiliate marketing podcast is continuing the 8th season with once again, another amazing guest on the show! On this week’s episode, we have the founder of Rightlander, Ian Sims. Ian is a web developer with a background in financial services. In 2004, he started to create a network of affiliate websites which he subsequently sold in 2016. Following this exit, he started to develop Rightlander, initially as a tool to monitor the relevance of a customer journey but soon to develop a focus on compliant content as online marketing regulations became stricter. Rightlander launched in 2018, now has 18 staff and monitors publisher, affiliate and influencer content across multiple channels for over 300 global brands.

Rightlander analyses millions of web pages, posts, ads and videos every month from different countries to identify affiliate marketing that does not comply with industry, partnership or product guidelines. Clients then review and remediate prioritised results via Rightlander’s online portal, or via API integration, to reduce business risk, save time and develop their partnerships with confidence. Who else is better to discuss affiliate compliance and all things regulation?
