Getting to know Eilidh Whyte, Senior Account Manager, affilinet


 

 

Eilidh recently joined the affilinet team as a Senior Account Manager. I decided to sit down and ask her a few questions about her new role and what attracted her to the industry. Find out more below.

  • You recently joined affilinet, what do you think so far?

Everyone has been so friendly and welcoming, starting at the same time as a couple others has meant there is a really good amount of enthusiasm in the office. Everyone wants to make a big influence in their respective accounts. Managing only one account has allowed me to give it the concentration it deserves.

  • Tell me about your previous experience?

I have had several jobs in many industries throughout my office life. I started life in traditional marketing at a subsea engineering company back in the homeland, I then moved to New York and worked in a structural engineering firm. When returning to the UK I moved to London and started my digital marketing career in gambling. Which, although I chose to leave the industry, taught me a lot.

Most recently I was working for an online travel agent called Loveholidays. I ran all online partnerships, which included the META partners, affiliate program, retargeting, tourist board partnerships and card link partners.

  • Tell me a bit about your new job role as?

I am a Senior Account Manager and I’m running the Thomas Cook account. I am looking forward to introducing the brand to new partners who can achieve their new goals and session targets.

  • What attracted you to the industry?

I feel it suits my personality perfectly. Highly analytical but still a big emphasis on personal relationships which I enjoy.

  • What advice would you give to affiliates looking to work with Thomas Cook?

Write great content about specific destinations and try to invest in good META software.

  • Where has been the best place you have travelled and why?

New York is still my favourite place. The list is endless …

  • Hot summers
  • Snowy winters
  • Broadway
  • Off Broadway
  • Dollar Chinese dumplings
  • Dollar slice pizza
  • Rooftop bars
  • Speakeasy bars
  • Bottomless margarita brunch

If you ever need recommendations I love to make them.

  • Describe yourself in 3 words?

Enthusiastic, positive, strange

  • Finally, what was the last purchase you made online?

A Mickey backpack in preparation for my upcoming Disney World trip.
