Affiliate Summit East 2009 is nearly here! To say that I’m excited is an understatement…I look forward to each and every Affiliate Summit conference for the following reasons:
- I get to meet new affiliates and potential new clients.
- I get to meet affiliates that I’ve worked with (sometimes for years) for the first time in person.
- I get to catch up with old friends and acquaintences.
- I get to host two awesome events with Wade & Joel, the CAMA Gospel Brunch and a super secret event for our client’s affiliates!
- I get to spend an entire weekend NOT explaining what affiliate marketing is!
and best of all, this time, for the very first time, I am a speaker!
Come and listen to me, Brian Littleton of ShareASale, Melanie Seery of Affiliate Voice and Beth Kirsch, volunteer for the Performance Marketing Alliance on the Advertising Tax Impact, Accomplishments and the Future.

Affiliate Summit Success Tip:
Now, I’ve been to a lot of Summits over the years, so over the next week, I’ll be posting tips for how to make your Affiliate Summit experience a success! Today’s tip: Plan ahead! You really don’t want to be standing at the door to the Meet Market reading the agenda…you’ll miss out on great sessions and opportunities if you are!
Step One: Download this: AffiliateSummit2009-East_Schedule This is a simple spreadsheet you can print out on a single sheet of paper and take with you. I’ve been using this for years and our team swears by it.
Step Two: Decide what sessions you will attend by reading the descriptions in the Affiliate Summit Agenda. Mark them on the spreadsheet. Be sure to sign up and mark the parties you plan on attending as well…some of the best deals and networking happen here, so don’t skip out!
Step Three: Print out the schedule and take it with you. I keep mine folded up in my pocket at all times. (Be sure to select the “Print to one page” option to get it all on one sheet.) Not only will it keep you on track and remind you about events, it’s great for jotting down notes and scheduling impromptu meetings.
