Just got my copy of Feed Front magazine and in it there are some great articles by Zac Johnson and other well known Affiliate Marketers. The theme for this month’s cover is “The Women Of Affiliate Marketing”. It’s nice to see the ladies of the industry featured and recognized. There is a nice bio on each featured person along with how long they have been in the industry, what they do, where they work, and some other information about them.
Hats off to Feed Front for showing that Affiliate Marketing is not the sausage fest it seems.
So speaking of Affiliate Marketing… I am getting geared up for Affiliate Summit West!
I get in on Sunday. Long gone are my days of getting in a couple days before and leaving a day after. I have 2 kids now… things have changed … for the better! Okay. So I get in on Sunday before noon. Then we are going to the Mirage where we are staying to check in. Then we will go to the RIO to register and hang out with the meet market.
Affiliate Meet Market
Location: Pavilion 8-11
Time: 12:00pm – 6:00pm
Exhibitor Move In: 9:00am – 12:00pm
Affiliate Summit kicks off with an extended session of structured, face to face networking. Merchants will have tables set to meet with affiliates to discuss their affiliate programs and cut deals. Vendors that cater to affiliates and merchants will also have tables to share information about their products and services. Each table is a meeting spot for teaching, learning, closing deals, creating partnerships and finding new opportunities.
On Sunday night, I have a few dinner invites but I’m still not sure what we are doing yet. (Yes, I’m waiting to see the best deal… JUST JOKING!)
WE HAVE A BOOTH!!!!! That’s right. We have a booth at the Affiliate Summit. The opportunity for us to get it just came about last week so we have been hustling trying to get everything ready. Having a booth is a SHIT TON of work. We have been totally busting ass to get everything ready. And when I say we I of course mean Tigh. Hopefully it’s not a ghetto booth! But we did everything we could to put together a booth in 5 days. Maybe it will be stellar…. maybe it will not.
I also was trying to get our friend Randy Couture (former Heavyweight Champion of the World!) to come and sign autographs in our booth… right now it’s looking like this isn’t going to happen. I think we’re a little too late on that but who knows.
When I am not at the booth, I will be speaking on the “Advertising on Facebook” Panel:
Advertising on Facebook
Location: Classroom D – Miranda 7-8
(This Session is Open to Platinum Pass Holders Only)
Learn about advertising on Facebook and how affiliates can reach over 100 million members. Join us for a panel discussion including a Facebook representative covering all you need to know.
Dan Murray, Internet Marketing Strategist, Ravenwood Marketing, Inc. (Moderator)
Zac Johnson, President / CEO, MoneyReign Inc.
Jeremy Schoemaker, President, ShoeMoney Media Group, INC
Alex Schultz, Facebook
Should be a great panel. We are still seeing a massive dislocation in advertising on social networks like Facebook. There is lots of money to be made there right now but it’s only so long before people become educated and the markets saturated. So now’s the time to educate yourself with this star studded panel!
At the booth we will be talking about ShoeMoney Tools.
Wednesday: Im outtie! I’ll be flying out early in the morning.
Please, if you see me introduce yourself. Don’t worry if I am already talking to people. I love to meet new people and have an attention span of 1 minute so it’s likely you are saving me from whoever I am currently talking to.
Everyone have a safe trip and see you at the Affiliate Summit West!
