The Amazing Women of Affiliate Summit

Although Missy Ward and Shawn Collins’ Affiliate Summit West seminar and tradeshow is now over, going through the 300+ photos I’ve taken makes me realize that although the affiliate industry continues to be male-dominated, there’re a number of female faces to take note of too.

With that, here are the women of the Affiliate Summit:

justine ezarik

Justine Ezarik is a lifecasting star who vlogs over at iJustine.tv. She spoke at the social marketing session with Sam Harrelson, Stephanie Agresta, Debbie Schultz and Tris Hussey sitting on the panel.

stephanie harris

Schaaf Consulting’s Stephanie Harris spoke at the Anik Singal’s AC Certified workshop the day before Affiliate Summit.

melissa salas

Buy.com‘s Melissa Salas chaired the video marketing panel and also received the Affiliate Summit Pinnacle Award for Affiliate Manager of the Year award. She’s done some great work with Buy.tv.

Irene Rojas

Irene Rojas is an affiliate manager with the OfferHive affiliate network based out of florida. Met her at the Affiliate Bash and she is friendly.

carolyn tang
Carolyn Tang: I’ve talked to her on ABW and on Facebook and it was great to meet her at the summit. Carolyn’s probably the second most public face of ShareASale after ski fanatic and founder Brian Littleton. Although we didn’t have a chance to talk a whole lot, it was great to meet Carolyn and a number of the SAS merchants at the Affiliate Meet Market and the trade show.

Laura Alter, Lauren and Andrea Schoemaker

WickedFire regulars Laura Alter of Notebook Forums, Lauren AKA Turbolapp and my homie Andrea from PlanetAndrea…who’s been one of my buddies and supporters since I began.

samantha brachat

Samantha Brachat: Sam over at NeverBlueAds has been a great affiliate manager and we did a podcast on seasonality and getting started in affiliate marketing. (Samantha Brachat Friday Podcast)
heather paulson

Heather Paulson:
We’ve exchanged emails and talked on the forums. I caught her presentation at the Affiliate Classroom Live workshop and it was a great opportunity to meet and talk to an experienced OPM and PPC manager like Heather at SAS’ Party Under the Stars. Check out the Paulson Management Group.

ms danielle
Danielle Nagami AKA MsDanielle
It’s always a great opportunity to meet people behind the blogs and meeting MsDanielle was no different. We were talking at the John Chow BBQ pig out the last day of the conference and I even got to carry her box around…

Robyn Jones
Robyn Jones
The former Ms Robyn Martin and now Mrs Kris Jones, always looking fab. Check out the PepperjamNetwork.

rachel honoway

Rachel Honoway: Affiliate marketing veteran Rachel (who’s driving the AC Certified program) and I had some fun with the moving bed in the suite during the ShareASale party…but it’s really not what you think! If you haven’t yet, check out this edition of the Friday Podcast we did earlier. (Rachel Honoway Friday Podcast)

Julia Stead

Julia Stead: We’ve talked on Linda Buquet’s 5Star Affiliate Marketing forum and I was surprised at how short she was.

Well, actually she’s like over 6′ and used to play basketball. We actually had got some footage of her and fellow ShareResults affiliate manager Jamie Fortunaso dancing on the couches at Tao during the Affiliate Bash, but the footage didn’t come out…

Ah well…ASE Boston I guess.
Debby Banning
Debby Banning: Building trust and credibility is important in building your network and I first “met” Debby when she added me as a friend on Facebook. I checked out the link and saw that Mark Wielgus of 45n5.com was a common friend. Debby’s with Market Leverage.

Note: This is a snippet from the 300+ photos I took at the seminar. More to come, including some commentary and analysis of the topics covered during the show.

    It was so nice to meet you at the Affiliate Summit. I really appreciate that you made a post about women in the industry. I can’t say that I have seen a post on this topic. Good topic!!! I hope we will catch up again and have more time to chat.

    Yes Andrew – great post from a great angle. Our industry has so many high profile men and most of the bloggers are men, so it’s easy to loose sight of the fact that we have some powerhouse women too.

    Oh and BTW I’m really upset that video didn’t turn out. I’ve been trying to get a video of Jamie dancing for 2 years now. I told the ShareResults team to be sure to get a pic of him dancing on the tables, but dancing on the couch would have been almost as good! :-)

    Sounds like everyone had a great time! Thanks for the great pics too Andrew!

    Hey Andrew,
    I didn’t get a chance to meet you at ASW but I’ve heard a lot of good things… Ah, next time.

    Seem like a ladies’ man to me… ;)

    Hi Linda,
    yes, Jamie and Julia can tell you I was almost in tears when the video didn’t turn out.

    BTW, it’s my mission to meet you at the summit one of these days!

    Hi Debby,
    It was a pleasure to meet you in person too.
    Pity we didn’t have a chance to talk more. Time is always the limiting factor and perhaps we’ll see the summit go to 5 days in the future.

    Hey Andrew,

    Wow you have some great photos of some fantastic woman! It was great meeting you and I really enjoyed our time at the ShareaSale party! I am pretty sure I will be seeing you again at either the next Affiliate Summit or sometime in between!

    ;-) It was fantastic meeting you!!

    Hey Gyutae,
    It’s a busy conference! I saw you in pics with Danielle.
    Perhaps we’ll meet next time!

    Hi Andrew,

    It was great meeting you at ASW 08. Thanks for sharing so much great info! Can’t wait to chat more.

    It was awesome meeting you Andrew, and I promise that in Boston you’ll get some real footage of Jamie dancing.
    As for my height….let’s not exaggerate, barefoot I’m only 5’11 and 3/4 ;)

    As always it was great seeing you! :D

    Just kidding. :) It was great meeting you finally! Looking forward to the next Summit, and I promise to shrink so we can get a picture together. :)

    You are a pimp Andrew Wee. A PIMP!

    Andrew Wee is a sly devil. Notice how the attractiveness of each female decreases on the way down in the post.

    Seems deliberate. Seems pretty, fucking, perverted.

    OMG i didn’t know you’re such a ladies man. I’m a bit jealous of you in that photo with Justine Ezarik :)

    I think there is a growing list of Female Affiliates online but we just dont really waste much time on forums etc online :) .. im a member of that FemaleAffiliates.com / MomCPA.com who are a female only affiliate network and they boast around 3000+ female affiliates who are a part of their network so we are out there :) x
