Todd Crawford, Vice-President of Sales, Leaving Commission Junction

Wow! I must say, I'm shocked. Just a few weeks earlier, the affiliate marketing community learned that Steve and Heidi Messer were stepping down at Linkshare and Steve Denton was moving on up. Now, Todd Crawford has announced that he will be leaving CJ on March 10 to "try something different."

I'm going to miss Todd, and I'm certain the affiliate marketing industry as a whole will miss him as well. I met Todd early on in my career in affiliate marketing, and considered him a friend. If I ever had a CJ-related problem and didn't know where else to turn, I could usually dial or email Todd and he quickly found a solution. Bumping into Todd at affiliate marketing events was always a treat because regardless of the topic of discussion, Todd had an opinion that he felt strongly about, and was able to articulate that opinion quite convincingly.

Best of luck, Todd, and I hope we bump into each other again sometime in the future.

Top 20 Blair.com Products for February '06

Here are the most popular products at Blair.com during February, excluding Clearance-priced items. By the way... the first two, the Women's Solid Knit Fleece Jacket and the Men's Scandia Woods Full Elastic Sport Pants) were wayyyy ahead of the rest of the pack. What makes the Fleece Jacket such a wonderful item is that it's available in a wide variety of sizes and an AMAZING 26 COLORS!

32747 Solid Knit Fleece Jacket
12406 Scandia Woods® Full Elastic Sport Pants
Knit Tank

What a difference a month makes! There is only one Men's product (in blue) on the list, and nearly all the products from December have been replaced by Spring fashions. The Mock Turtlenecks that were at the top for several months are gone, but have been replaced on the list by Short Sleeve Crested Mock Turtlenecks. We're just getting out of February, and the Tankini Separates have already worked their way into the Top 20. I wouldn't be suprised to see several other swimsuits joining the Tankini on the list next month.
