Missy Ward and Shawn Collins’ Affiliate Summit West 2008 from February 24-26, 2008 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, looks like it’s shaping up to be yet another successful conference.
They’ve secured Jim Kukral as the MC.
According to Shawn’s post “Speaker Submissions for ASW 08″:
The submission deadline is October 26, 2007. Read through all of the information on the speaker submission page. submissions failing to follow the instructions and/or adhere to the deadline will not be considered.
…Accepted speakers will be notified no later than November 16, 2007.
Due to the volume of submissions, we will not notify applicants if they have not been accepted. Therefore, if you have not been contacted by November 16, 2007, your proposal was not accepted.
The speaking proposals are evaluated on the basis of:
How are speaker submissions selected?
The speaker submissions are reviewed by the Affiliate Summit Advisory Board and selected on a number of factors, including speaking experience, industry reputation, and attention to detail (failure to follow instructions on the form will count against you), etc.
Here’s an interesting idea from a year ago for ASW 07 (held in January this year)
If you are interested in speaking, one thing that would help evaluate your proposal is if you also send a video (just fire up a Web cam to shoot it) and talk about what youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be speaking about at the conference. (Potential Affiliate Summit Speakers – Send Us Your Videos)
Although taking the effort to put together a video – scripting, shooting, editing – will take much more time than merely filling in a text form, you can expect massive dividends in terms of branding – something that cannot be easily counted in dollars.
Some of the most successful marketers have remained at the top of their game due to their efforts in keeping in constant contact with their readers through regular email.
Now think about what video can do for your business…
