Affiliate Summit Forums Are Now Live!

by Jeremy Schoemaker on January 23, 2011 · 107 comments

Shawn Collins announced last week that the Affiliate Summit forums are now live.

The affiliate industry is in bad need of an affiliate marketing specific forum that has quality people and not just a bunch of kids acting like they are big ballers.

The Affiliate Summit IMO is in the perfect position to do it.

Awesome! Count me in!

2 Jim Petersen

Nice one! This should be both an excellent networking platform and go-to place for quality resources.

3 sasha_482

I enjoyed reading some of the discussions there already. Found some links that pointed me to really interesting recaps of this year’s ASW.

4 Fields of Clover

Looking forward to reconnecting with people I’ve met at ASW as well as get to know those I haven’t had the chance to meet. Props to the Affiliate Summit people for launching this!

Not much is more exciting than joining a new and growing community. Except when money is involved and fresh and new ideas are being shared.

6 New Bee

I think this is a great platform to keep track of relevant industry news. Thanks for the heads-up, Jeremy!

7 Nikki Stewart

Not only that. I think more than the updates you get it’s the opportunity to build your network that provides the most value. This would offer a great venue to form and maintain a strong circle of contacts. A solid network is worth more than information you pick from it IMHO

8 B.Logan

I couldn’t agree more. Most of the time, you only get to do that during industry events. I think that this forum should help strengthen connections that have already been established in former affiliate summits.

9 moolahmachine

I believe that this is an effective way to add a boost to my email list. Hope my warm market improves in the next few days since I am looking forward to joing Qivana’s bandwagon.

10 Andrew Says So

Always good to find a reliable source of information and updates. I’m definitely signing-up!

11 AnnieP78

Is this entirely free or do you have to dish out some bucks to maintain an account?

12 Missy Ward

Hey Annie,
Yes, membership is completely free.

13 Austin

The tools and services section certainly makes a great addition. I’m sure a lot of people would benefit from this forum.

14 Mark Mead

Found some interesting information there already. Looking forward to discovering some really cool tools from there.

15 spameater

You know what? I thought it was the landing page for 4chan the first tile I checked it out! :D

16 Melanie Johnson

Is this forum open to everyone, including newbies? This would really be a great way not just to network but get the latest updates and industry news as well.

17 AurorMine

Hi, Jeremy! Thanks for the info! Is this exclusive to previous affiliate summit attendees or open to everyone?

18 Creative Marketer

I think it’s an open invitation. It’s an excellent venue indeed not just for networking but for finding great resources as well. I’m really excited about it.

19 Missy Ward

It’s open to all affiliate marketers.

20 Vince

I won’t be able to contribute much there if ever. But I’m interested to join.

21 PokeYerFace

Not a good idea to sell yourself short. Just give it a try and see how it goes.

22 WanderingMommy

I hope they have a section for the little guys.

23 Donny Gamble

I think this will be a good place for a lot of newbie affiliates to finally get the real answers to their questions

24 Big Al

How does the branded sub-forums work? Will take a closer link at their site later.

25 Sanjay

Interesting. This would really come handy if you wish to keep track of relevant news and trends. Great way to network, too.

26 Undercover Affiliate

I’m really excited about this! It’ll be easier for me now to get the latest conference related information. Looking forward to seeing how this pans out.

27 Lola Dee

This should make a great venue to discuss affiliate summit insights and experiences. I like to follow updates so this would be a huge help to me.

28 Yes2Freebies

This marks a sweet milestone for affiliate marketing!

29 internetFTW

Just signed up and I am so ready for the first installment! Thanks for the heads up, Jeremy!

30 AL0101

This is a great idea introducing an affiliate summit forum. I hope this will bring together web marketing enthusiasts — veteran or tenderfoot — in a positive way.

31 TomYoon

Great update, Shoe. Enough said. Time for a beer.

32 E. Langdon

Noticed there’s a lot of content now. I feel like I’m missing a lot already.

33 BearPile

Sounds great! Nice way to reach out to the affiliate community.

34 FirenzeZ

I am so in! :P

35 KrisM77

Onward to e-commerce success!

36 Cristina Dy

You said it! Now I’m just gonna tweak my landing page and I’m signing up in a few minutes.

37 Robin Sterling

Browsed the pages and found the Paid Announcements section. Rigggggggght.

38 Patrick R

Maybe you’re just overreacting. All proper forums have paid sections to keep the site afloat. Right, Shoe?

39 WanderingMommy

Where’s the LIKE button when you need one?

40 Jona712

So does this work like Facebook or any other social networking tool out there?

41 Bowie

It’s that part of social networking where you hobnob with the best. ;)

42 Runs With Scissors

A great way to get insights as well as share any of your own.

43 Richard Pascal

There’s a wealth of information available at various social networking sites. Unfortunately, you’d have to sift through tons of info to find the ones that are relevant and reliable. I think this forum would be a great go-to site for affiliates to get quality information more easily.

44 Nicholas Oli

Although the idea isn’t novel, the concept of having a forum just for affiliate marketers is just innovative. I hope to learn new stuff from all the veteran contributors. Hey, what ever happened to Justin Goff’s follow-up post?

45 Dmitrii Anastas

Wish there would be a free ASE pass up for grabs in the mix, too.

46 WilmaP

I’m hoping for that, too. I so wanted to attend that one this year.

47 Shawn Collins

We always give away a lot of passes – there will be announcement in the forum in the future.

48 Cristina Dy

Just signed up and read the latest posts. It really does help if you were a previous Affiliate Summit attendee to have an idea what all the nitty-gritty’s about.

49 BigMoneyBrooklyn

I’ll be attending the next one. In the meantime, I could get the information I need from this forum.

50 The American Dream

Great post, Jeremy! :P

51 Norman Nevelle

Thanks for the update. Keep them coming!

52 SmallBiz Sue

That’s why I follow this blog. There’s always something fresh, interesting, and useful to find here. I’m not into affiliate marketing but I’m very much interested with this forum. I hope I can join, too.

53 Bash Bosh

This looks great… going to register right now.
I think this would be a great source of information for all affiliates out there!

Thanks for sharing

54 Togrul

I’d love to join this event someday.

55 California Dreamin

Make someday today. Joining this forum may not be a perfect substitute for attending the conference but it’ll do for now. :)

56 Affiliate Marketing Forums

I think it’s great that Affiliate Summit has created a forum. Just signed up thanks for posting!

See everyone at ASE11!!!

57 Transmission Line Tower

Its very nice blog and great service.I found so many entertaining stuff in your blog,especially on this post. Keep up the good work.

58 Feeding Frenzy

Great! I can’t wait for ASE updates! Thanks for the info!

59 John Dillon

Though forums aren’t exactly new, somehow, this one’s different from the rest. Judging from what I see so far, this particular forum is a great resource for relevant information. Kudos to Affiliate Summit organizers for setting this up!

60 Rylan Howie

I agree! This one’s definitely worth checking out!

61 Kevin A

I bet my bottom dollar that they’ll just talk about old stuff…

62 AnnieLouJ12860

LOL why so cynical? You might be surprised what you’d find there.

63 Hans Anders

Looking forward to additional posts from you, Jeremy! :)

64 Willow

This is good news! I’ve only recently started with affiliate marketing. Am I qualified to sign up for this?

65 Mark Dee

I guess so. It says here all affiliate marketers are welcome. :P

66 Farzad H.

Nice one! I’ll go sign up now.

67 Jason S.

I haven’t been to any Affiliate Summit event. Would I still be able to join? I’d like to sign up and learn more about affiliate marketing.

68 Missy Ward

You don’t have to be a past attendee of the conference to join the forum.

69 Gabby Dell from SC

The calendar’s one of my favorite features already. I’d love to attend the conference so this would make it much easier for me to keep track of updates.

70 Screechy Rich

Bookmarked… Will sign up later.

71 BTK

Same here. I’ll be right back to check on the sweet sweet stuff I’m gonna get in a while. Thanks for the tip off, Shoe!

72 Foul

Looking forward to the free stuff that I could get my hands on! :P

73 Ethan

Looking forward to joining contests and win awesome prizes like Vinay did.

74 Raul Lago

Could I be your next chaperone for this year’s Playboy Mansion party?

75 Alan Alan

I just checked it out. A lot of interesting posts there.

76 Rod S. Lee

The paid advertisements section is quite a bit fishy, don’t you think?

77 Shawn Collins

Why so? Some people want to announce their affiliate program or other related company and it’s clearly labeled.

78 Get That Ball

Cool! Now I can learn a few more tips and tools that can help me up my game.

79 F2Xsites

About time! This would keep the momentum for those who attended an affiliate summit. And a great resource for newbies and those who’ve been in this business for a while.

80 Heinrich Sture

Let the posting begin! ;)

81 Fridtjof Salomon

Now, now, kids, let Uncle Fridtjof check this out first to make sure the content is appropriate.

82 Patrick R

I just want to ask if Qivana’s offering discounts if you’re a Shoemoney fan?

83 TheSandMan5050

Just read this post. I’ll check the forum site in a while. Thanks, man!

84 Manisha Sithembile

So is it mandatory for all affiliate marketers to join this forum?

85 Almira Keefe

I don’t think so. Well, the upside is you’ll have additional helpful affiliate marketing pointers when you jump on the bandwagon.

86 Benito Salvatore

I wonder if this forum can handle the incoming spam in the next few days. How secure is this site anyway?

87 David R

No one can tell for sure. Seems like a basic setup to me. :D

88 Chris Green

I still haven’t received my confirmation mail. :(

89 medomoc

I’ve come across some forums discussing the affiliate summit. At least now there’s one that’s initiated by organizers themselves.

90 Baseer Hannan

I am so excited to give this a try. Looking forward to hobnob with all the affiliate marketing superstars. :)

91 Kyle

I beat you to it already! LOL

92 James Is (Not Working)

Dibs on the super poster rank!

93 Roshaun Philips

Can I post images here or just pure text-based contributions?

94 Susan Armand

Glad to know the world of affiliate marketing is still getting better and better!

95 Hollaback Will

Last one to sign up is a rotten egg! :P

96 Fiona Wong

When is Lisa Barone posting another article?

97 Go Harry Go

I heard R. Kelley’s birthday is coming up! :D

98 Guy Cleveland

Whatever happened to Logonerds?

99 Patrick R

“You will not use this forum as a venue for resolving issues with moderators, affiliates, merchants, networks, agencies or other service providers;”

Looks kind of dead, only 3 people online. I think most people already talk to each other on Twitter. Looks to be more of an “affiliate summit” forum rather than an “affiliate marketing” forum. I guess that’s why it’s called a networking forum? Lightweight chit chat, networking, the usual people you already see online all the time and based on what I quoted, I guess no talking about real issues because the might offend some of the advertisers or somebody you might need to retweet something you’re pushing. Not for me, right now looks pretty boring.

101 Shawn Collins

> based on what I quoted, I guess no talking about real issues because the might offend some of the advertisers or somebody you might need to retweet something you’re pushing

We simply don’t want to be the place for people to take their private battles public – we created it to foster networking and education, rather than be a troll party.

Sorry if that’s boring to you.

102 Adelide

Thanks for the info! Is it true that the registration is free?

103 Amy Ely is thrilled to be part of the new Affiliate Summit Forum! We’re looking forward to meeting new affiliate marketers, networking, continuing industry discussions between conferences, providing insight, and fielding any questions.

Thanks to the Affiliate Summit team for officially launching this great new community. We’re looking forward to watching it grow :)


104 Super Bowl Ads 2011
