The Performance Marketing Association (PMA) is a non-profit trade association founded in 2008. It is the only trade association representing the performance marketing industry. We are a 501(c)6, incorporated in the State of Delaware and doing business in the State of California.
The PMA’s mission is to champion and protect accountable performance marketing. Our main goals are:
- To promote the growth of the industry,
- Help model standards and best-practices and
- Advocate on behalf of the businesses that comprise the performance marketing industry
The PMA strives to raise the profile of performance marketing by demonstrating the value of this multi-billion marketing channel, which comprises more than 200,000 businesses and individuals. Continued growth of the performance marketing space is expected as advertisers, facing small budgets and big expectations, increasingly look to performance-based marketing initiatives to expand their business.
In addition, the PMA gives performance marketers a unified voice to address issues and challenges facing the industry, such as the “advertising tax” proposed in some states. The PMA investigates these issues, maintains close contact with members, advertisers, legislators and news organizations to inform and educate and provide resource materials.
The association also coordinates advocacy efforts, speaking on behalf of the industry – allowing its members to be heard while still focusing on their respective businesses.
With the PMA leading the charge, businesses will continue to grow and succeed, the quality of work will be demonstrated, and further quality participation in the performance marketing field encouraged.
PMA Members have access to tips, tools, tricks and resources that focus on the practical implementation of strategies that will help grow your business. Read all whitepapers and best practices here.

Is Your Site Ready for Primetime?
When a marketing campaign underperforms, the knee jerk reaction from many advertisers is to blame the traffic. Now, obviously not all traffic is created equal, but there are many reasons for the success or failure of a campaign, and the traffic quality is just one component.
