It’s about 47 days to Shawn Collins and Missy Ward’s Affiliate Summit West in Vegas, and if you’re headed there, drop a note in the comments and I’ll be sure to keep an eye out for you.
I added a note to my Facebook profile to add a countdown alert (via the Top Countdowns application).
So some of the choices available:
I picked the 2nd from the bottom cos it looked kinda “slot machine-ish”. [You'd have to pay a hefty sum to see the cupcakes on my profile..........]
After I added it, I was thinking about unconventional uses, specifically guerilla tactics for Facebook applications for affiliate marketers…
For the first time in its history, Affiliate Summit will be travelling outside the continental US to the UK (United Kingdom) and I had an opportunity to find out more about the event from Affiliate Summit co-founder Shawn Collins.
Founded in 2003, Affilaite Summit brings together affiliate marketers, affiliate networks, vendors and merchants. The event has been going gangbusters with this year’s Affiliate Summit West and Affiliate Summit East nearing or breaching the 2,000 attendee mark.
I had a chance to talk to Shawn about the upcoming Affiliate Summit UK. Aside from a June 2004 Affiliate Summit held on a cruise ship from New York City to Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, this’ll be the first time (more…)
Shawn Collins’ and Missy Ward’s Affiliate Summit East has wrapped up in Miami and it has provided some buzz, even from where I’m at halfway around the world.
If you didn’t make it down, Shawn has posted a listing of WebProNews’ video coverage of the event.
Jim Kukral seems to have been holed up in the Blogging Room the entire event and has posted quite a bit of content. Pity I wasn’t down there, else I’d have visited him once or twice (For real this time, Jim…)
He did post this marvel of a pic though:

Shawn has also blogged about ASE:
5Star Affiliate Linda Buquet has linked to the Affiliate Summit East blog posts. [Incidentally I won 5Star's "Blog Buzz" prize a week back. Thanks Linda!].
Shoemoney has posted his reflections on Affiliate Summit East and has a number of interesting photos in his photo gallery.
Super Affiliate Zac Johnson, who spoke at ASE, has posted (more…)
I just touched down in Singapore earlier today and although the 14 hour time difference is causing major havoc to my body clock, I figured this is the perfect opportunity to reflect on Affiliate Summit West and the takeaways from having flown 20+ hours around the world to attend.
Thanks to Shawn Collins and Missy Ward who conceptualized Affiliate Summit and have been grown it from strength-to-strength at about 200 participants in the first AS in 2003 till more than 2,000 at the recently concluded ASW.
It was a great opportunity to meet up face-to-face with a number of the online marketers I’d been reading and talking with over the past few months like ShoeMoney, Scott Jangro, Kris Jones, PlanetAndrea, Jon Fisher from WickedFire and Joe Whyte.
Becky “Webmoxy” Ryan was a friendly and intelligent person to talk to (even though I was deep in thought and seemed to have unintentionally ignored her when she called out a few times).

It’s 10 more days till Affiliate Summit West (ASW) and I’m stoked at the opportunity. (Incidentally, the event is sold out)
It’ll be my first trip to the US in about 4 years and I’m planning to hit Fry’s, Best Buy, get my fill of prime rib and margaritas in Vegas.
Here’s my to do list for ASW:
- Attend the great sessions planned
- Meet and greet the affiliate managers present, as not many have a point of presence in Asia.
- Finally put a face to many of the personalities whose blogs I’ve been reading, or emailing, or catching their web radio programs, or whose forums I’ve been participating on.
- Get a Shoemoney t-shirt (one of the new black one maybe?)
- Get some nice WickedFire merchandise at their booth
- Catch some great parties
This is one of the few times I’d be heading halfway around the world (I’ll be battening down the hatches in Asia to work on a couple of major projects once I get back).
So far, I look forward to the opportunity to meet and greet with Shoemoney, Jon F, Anik Singal, PlanetAndrea, Chris Hooley, Scott Jangro, Robyn Tippins, Shawn Collins, Missy Ward, the LunarPages blogging team (including Joe Whyte) and it looks like Pepperjam will have a good presence there too.
I might be approaching some of you to do interviews, so you are forwarned, and perhaps forearmed.
If you’re planning to interview any of the folks at ASW, here’s a couple of pointers (more…)
