Find me at Affiliate Summit & Win

I have been, or can be if you click on a link and make a purchase, compensated via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value for writing this post. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Hey everyone… I’m going to have a real simple contest during Affiliate Summit where you can win a $25 iTunes gift card. No purchase necessary, but you must be present to win. Here’s how to play:

  1. Find me, and trade business cards. I mentioned earlier that I’ll have some really cool cards, and I was super-excited when I got them. I ordered a few decks of personalized Bicycle playing cards, with all of my information on the back. These cards are sweet! So pick a card… any card.
  2. Then you have to follow me on Twitter. Easy enough… go to and click that little “Follow” button.
  3. Watch the tweets! I’ll be chosing the winning card from a full deck and tweeting the winning card. For example, I may tweet “If you have my 9 of diamonds, find me at lunch to claim your $25 iTunes gift card”.

Now for some fine print… I have 9 decks of cards, meaning about 450 business cards. Once they’re gone, they’re gone. I’ll bring along my boring cards for the fish bowls, and save the nice ones for networking.

I also have only 6 iTunes gift cards. I’m giving away 2 per day. So if 3 people with the winning card find me, only the first two get the gift card. Also, you must have the card before it’s named the winner. You can’t find me after I tweet that, then rummage through my decks of cards looking for the winning card. Finally, winners will be announced via my twitter account, so be prepared to share your twitter username with me.

This is a fun contest… not a multi-million-dollar lottery, so I’m not making up a long list of rules. Don’t throw a hissy over it.

Start collecting cards once I land in Vegas (on Saturday the 10th). I don’t know where I’ll be Saturday night, but Sunday morning I’ll be at the CAMA Gospel Brunch at the House of Blues. Then onto the Meet Market.

In the end, I’m using this as a networking tool. We trade cards, chit-chat a little, and take it from there. Who knows… networking is what Affiliate Summit is all about!

    Certainly a fun and different contest 🙂 Too bad I can’t come.

    Cool contest! But I will probably not check Twitter while in Vegas – too many places to go and people to see – hope to meet you there!

    What do you look like? Maybe you should twitpic a photo of yourself in the mirror in the morning when you’re about to head out the door, so we know what you look like.

    Good question, Steve. I’m usually behind the camera, so looking at my photos doesn’t help any. Here’s a shot of myself and Ian, from his website (I’m on the right).
