200 People Lifted Me Up… Thank You!

Yesterday I celebrated my 32nd birthday and was blown away by something incredible that happened. Social media and an Industry I love so much lifted me up more than I’ve ever experienced before.  In the last 24 hours over 200 people sent me love, blessings and well wishes through Facebook, twitter, email, text and phone calls. Can you imagine me sitting here having over 200 people sending positive, happy vibes? I could barely contain myself.

I don’t know many industries, if any, that allow for people to care that much about those around them and express it so clearly and beautifully through social media and connectivity. People that I admire and respect more than anything sent me messages like this: (more…)

Top 10 Affiliate Marketing Conferences of 2013

Affiliate Marketing Conferences Events Expos and ShowsWith Affiliate Summit West just around the corner, I was inspired to write a post about some of the top affiliate and internet marketing conferences to attend this year. There are more than the list below, such as LeadsGen, the Performance Marketing Summit, LinkShare Symposium, and so on, however here are the Top 10 “must attend” conferences on my list for this year:

1. Affiliate Summit

Affiliate Summit West, East and Central are THE hottest affiliate marketing conferences in North America. With over 5000 attendees at both the East and West shows, with the latter next weekend in Las Vegas, attendees will get an incredible taste of the excitement of affiliate marketing through educational sessions, meet markets, networking events, an exhibitor hall, new comers program and more. I will be speaking at Affiliate Summit West at 12:30 Sunday about Affiliate Strategies for a Post Penguin World.

2. ShareASale Think Tank

One of my favorite affiliate networks holds their annual Shareasale Think Tank once a year and although in the past this has been an invitation only event for top tier affiliates and merchants to meet (very exclusive with about 100-200 attendees), last year this event opened to the public and was a great success. We will absolutely be attending this show this year. (more…)
