Friday Podcast: How Affiliate Summit West Can Bring Your Business To The Next Level

This week I had an opportunity to discuss the power of networking at live events with Affiliate Summit co-founder Shawn Collins.

Shawn is one of the most experienced and friendliest contacts I have made since getting involved in affiliate marketing and I appreciate the fact that he’s a friend whom I consult over IM and through the email.

It was great to hear how Shawn got started in affiliate marketing in 1997 as an affiliate for Amazon, and how he’s progressed to founding the Affiliate Summit seminar/tradeshow with Missy Ward, manages the Affiliate Tip blog, Authored “Successful Affiliate Marketing for Merchants”, his annual AffStat report, the weekly Affiliate Thing weekly podcast co-hosted with Revenue magazine editor Lisa Picarille, an Affiliate Manager forum and probably 100 other projects, including one which will be launched soon.

Here’re some of the topics we discussed:

  • How to get value out of attending seminars and events (as opposed to staying home and reading blogs and forums)
  • Important things you should do BEFORE and AFTER attending an event
  • How to catch all the conferences free
  • How to gain an unfair networking advantage at ASW
  • How to get free consulting from industry veterans and experts at the event

Affiliate Summit West is from Feb 24-26 at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas. Last year the tickets ran out and scalpers were having a field day on eBay.

And Shawn has given a special Affiliate Summit coupon code for my blog readers “ANDREW10” which will give you a 10% discount off your tickets.

Here’s the registration link: Affiliate Summit West.

Get your tickets early to avoid disappointment, and if you’re headed for ASW, I look forward to seeing you there.

    It always helps to standout, because with 2,500+ people at the event, you need to!

    Hi Debby,
    From the time I’ve started out till now, I’ve not had difficulty in finding helpful people on the net (even located halfway around the world), to get help with my projects.

    The major advantage of a live event is the face-to-face nature of it.

    Well said Andrew. There are just so many things you can talk about and relate in person that don’t come across online nearly as well. Affiliate Summit should be a good boost in everyone’s online business.

    For sure, Jon.
    Which is why I’m flying halfway round the world for this.

    BTW, interesting anchor text.
