I’m in the PPC Super Affiliate session comprising Amit Mehta, Colin McDougall, Ros Gardner on the panel and Anik Singal moderating.
From the sessions I’ve attended and attendees I’ve spoken to, there seems to be a sizable contingent of new affiliate marketers (with less than a year’s experience) attending the show.
If you’re in this group, here’re my tips for getting the value after the show.
- Connect with experienced affiliates: Find out if they have twitter accounts or blogs (here’s my twitter account). Build a relationship, read the content they’ve already published. This creates a better impression than sending a direct message or email with the request “please teach me affiliate marketing”.
- Take advantage of resources: I had a chance to sit down with Wil Reynolds and he mentioned that all his resources are listed at Delicious. Check them out.
- Take action: No magic beans were being given away at the show, on the tradeshow floor, or at the parties. Sorry. You need to take action, and you will get results.
Most importantly, have fun while you’re at it.
