Two Live West Coast Events Coming Up!
If you’ve read my post, What is Affiliate Marketing, you know that many bloggers use Affiliate Marketing to earn income on their blogs.
You may also have seen all the buzz about Affiliate Summit which is the most popular, highest profile, Affiliate Marketing live event by far. Affiliate Summit West is January 9-11, 2011 in Las Vegas. If you want the fast path to making money with affiliate programs you may want to attend.
This quote from DM Confidential sums up why people go to Affiliate Summit:
“You might wonder who would want to attend. Yet, year after year people do. They tell others and the demand continues to grow. It’s in this respect where Affiliate Summit shines and puts itself ahead of so many other venues. You don’t go because you feel you have to. You go because you want to. You go without many expectations but a belief that something will come of it. And, you find yourself proven right. You have those making a few thousand a month in the same space as those making millions, and only here do you find those whose salaries exceed seven figures manning their own booths. It’s hard to nail exactly, but at this show people seem more open, more approachable. You feel like you are among friends, that they won’t judge you but welcome you. It might be the nature of the industry or something unique to Missy and Shawn, the organizers, but whatever it is, you almost hate to leave.”
Influence People’s Social Media Marketing Las Vegas event is the day after Affiliate Summit West. Knowing how to effectively use Social Media will continue to grow in importance and the fastest way to get up to speed is by learning from those with the most experience.
If the entry cost for Affiliate Summit is out of reach, Early Bird tickets to this particular Social Media event are the least expensive of any of these top live events. These events have toured Internationally and received great unsolicited recommendations like this one:
“We were both impressed and surprised by the quality of the speakers and the information presented at the event. Sometimes you go to these events and hear nothing but a sales pitch. This conference happily, wasn’t that.” ~ Two of us from E3 European Agency Network
Sponsors and Partners for the Social Media Marketing Las Vegas event include Mashable and ReadWriteWeb among many others.

If you would love to meet the people you know online and learn cutting edge strategies from the best these events are a great way to do it. I hope everyone who wants to attend can go. There is still time to buy airline tickets at advance purchase prices. Check out the Southwest Airlines specials for Vegas and the Flamingo Hotel specials. Flamingo is one of the sponsors for the SMLasVegas event.
I’ve been a supporter of attending live events for a long time as they’re one of the best way to not just make but really to solidify relationships. Due to its location and timing, I unfortunately will not be able to attend this one but wanted to pass it along for anyone that was in the area. Both event names are well known and well respected and this is the sort of quality people you want to be rubbing shoulders with. Those are my affiliate links (and discount codes!) so if you register be sure to grab them to get your 10% off!
What is your favorite live event to attend? Have you attended any and what lessons have you picked up from them that you feel are unique to the experience of live conferences? If you haven’t had a chance to attend any maybe you’ll share your thoughts on what types of live conferences might interest you and what you’d love to see more info about!
Yours In Success!
