I'd never heard of this until this year but if you're interested in affiliate marketing, you should check out the Affiliate Convention. It’s in Los Angeles California on December 3 – 4, 2009 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza hotel. Cost? NOTHING.
You know how I started as an affiliate marketer? I heard someone in a class I was in talk about how he won tickets to Affiliate Summit. I got tickets and went and it really helped me. Up until then I didn't know any other affiliate marketers and didn't really know where to start. I met super affiliate and friend Jeremy Palmer, interviewed him for a story in a magazine and later started my own affiliate web sites.
So if you have any interest in affiliate marketing this is a great chance to learn more and to meet other affiliates. The convention is FREE for affiliates to attend. Their last convention had more than 1200 attendees with 87% of them being affiliates. Speakers include, the Marriott, The New York Times, Oprah.com, Danny Sullivan, etc.
Even though it's free, you still have to get there and find a place to stay. So they're running some fun promotions, including a video contest where one lucky winner may attend the conference All expenses-paid/VIP-style. Also, stay tuned and I'll have hotel discount codes for you.
Affiliate marketing is perhaps the best way to make money online that there is. You refer people to other web sites and make money doing it. I love it. It's a great way to make a residual income.
I want to go!!
