8 Mobile Apps for Performance Marketers

There's an old cliché that says time is money, and on the Web, that is perhaps most true for the affiliate marketer.

Modern technology has afforded us all the opportunity to stay on top of our tasks from virtually anywhere thanks to mobile devices and the apps they run. This has (mostly) helped make us more productive, especially for those who work on the Internet, as it allows them to stay connected to their businesses at all times.

It was inevitable that developers would soon begin creating mobile apps aimed at helping improve the productivity of affiliate marketers by helping them stay connected to their various campaigns, view real-time data or make changes on-the-go. After all, time is money.
