Quick News from Affiliate Summit East

imagesHi, folks. I should be in NYC right now attending day 2 of Affiliate Summit East, but I stayed in for a little extra sleep.

I’m attending Affiliate Summit East 2009 in NYC at the Hilton. It’s my first Affiliate Summit, and I have learned so much in less than 6 hours that it’s hard to believe. I’ve learned a bit about marketing, and I’ve learned that the affiliate marketing community is real tight and friendly. A bunch of great people out there.

First, thanks to Evan Weber of Experience Ads (@experienceads) for helping me get my pass. And we finally got to meet after trying to meet all day.

Sunday I attended three seminars: Getting Noticed Fast (with Mike Buechele, Trisha Lyn Fawver, Jen Goode, and Stephanie Lichtenstein), Viral Campaigns by Larry Bailin, and What the heck is a web site? (Or are web sites dead?) All three were very informative, and chock full of useful info and ideas. I’ll write more about them later.

I met some more bloggers such as Ben Spark (Drew) at benspark.com; @HeatherinBC (boatinginbeautifulbritishcolumbia.com) who was great; Brett Bumeter from softduit.com; and Andre Natta of bhamterminal.com. Real nice people.

I also got to chat briefly with John Chow of JohnChow.com and Jeremy Schoemaker of shoemoney.com. I completely look like I snuck up behind them and had someone sneak this photo when they weren’t looking, but I had been chatting with them both beforehand. It was great to meet them, and they’re two really down to earth guys for such well-known bloggers.

Much more to tell, but I’m going to save it for later and head on down to ASE09 ASAP.
