What we learned from Shinji Ota

Here are some of the main points we learned from our engaging conversation with Shinji Ota:


Having a great relationship with your affiliate is one of the most critical core values for an affiliate manager. Moreover, you should always be there when your affiliate needs you or has questions or problems. 

This means that as an affiliate manager, you should ensure to attend to each affiliate’s needs and requests. If you’re a dedicated and responsible affiliate manager, your affiliates will trust you. 

Takeaway #2

For managers and their affiliates to become successful in this industry, they need to treat each other with care and provide support. However, ensure that you treat one another differently as not all affiliates have the same support and needs. 

This means that respect should always be present. It is the most essential factor in establishing strong relationships with affiliates. When affiliates witness their managers’ concern and support, they’re more likely to trust your brands, programs or firms.

Takeaway #3

It’s best to accept commissions in crypto since they’re flexible when exchanging funds for other currencies. With crypto, you don’t need intermediaries or third parties when transferring funds wherever you may be in the world.
