Description for case is given below :
After three years of rapid growth in a relatively young industry, the affiliate and payment processing company RevenueWire.com found itself operating in a very different environment. Sales growth in the company’s affiliate network service had leveled off, and orders for Q1 2010 looked just like those for Q1 2009. New competitors, low entry barriers, and a plateau in the affiliate market meant few opportunities for growth across the industry. Despite those conditions, the company’s owners had set aggressive revenue targets for 2010 to 2012. The general manager must evaluate options for growth, including new markets and new products, to determine how to meet her targets. Because RevenueWire.com’s competitors are privately held, there is little public data on the state of their finances or the size of various markets. The general manager has learned how to use surrogate data to gauge the market and make strategic decisions, and the students must do the same to develop an effective three-year plan that will meet or exceed the owners’ expectations. The case exposes students to decision making in a global industry dominated by privately held companies. It also exposes students to the affiliate marketing industry from the viewpoint of an entrepreneurial company that serves as an intermediary between merchants and affiliates. It describes many of the challenges facing an intermediary in an industry that includes not only legitimate merchants but also a vast array of scam artists and phony products.
