NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 07/03/14 -- I-Texts is pleased to announce it has partnered with Rakuten LinkShare as a publisher enabling I-Texts charities to receive income when its registered supporters purchase goods and services from Rakuten LinkShare Advertisers. The Rakuten LinkShare Network has more than 1,000 advertisers in the United States and more than 3,000 advertisers worldwide.

I-Texts was a sponsor of the recent Rakuten Marketing Symposium held in New York, New York on June 25 - 26, 2014.

Rakuten LinkShare is a leading provider of full-service online marketing solutions specializing in the areas of affiliate marketing, search marketing, and lead generation.

Over time it has become an integral part of marketing plans and a useful tool for specific marketing and sales objectives including increasing general sales, moving select inventory, and helping new brands become established. Affiliate marketing relies on two groups, the publishers (affiliates) who display advertisements online and the advertisers (merchants) who aim to increase sales for their online shop.

Over 5,000 people participated in the survey including advertisers, publishers and agencies. Rakuten LinkShare was cited for platform strength, quality of support and international capabilities.

"Our partnership with Rakuten LinkShare will benefit our charities by offering supporters an extensive range of products and services from national and local merchants through the Rakuten LinkShare Network. Charity supporters are enthusiastic about purchasing from these companies knowing a percentage of their purchase is going to a worthy cause," stated Frank Kristan, President of I-Texts, Inc.

As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS).
