Affiliate Summit West 2011 is in the history books (read through my session recaps). This was the first Summit in which I spoke (Datafeeds panel and Inside the Minds of Affiliates) and while I didn’t think it was a big deal, I was relieved when the second panel was finished.
It’s hard to write a session recap on the SEO Site Review/Clinic, because site owners submit their sites to the panel (Rae Hoffman-Dolan, Michael Gray, Kenny Hyder, and Michael Streko) and the critique is done on-the-fly with most of the content specific to the site owner. However, there are some useful tips you can get that can be applied to other sites.
While not quite a beginner at affiliate marketing, I had never heard James Martell speak before, so while at Affiliate Summit West 2011 in Las Vegas, I attended his session,
Making Money With Affiliate Programs for Beginners. Although it was a session targeted towards beginners, sometimes its great to hear what you already know to remind yourself that you know it 🙂
James did a great job with his presentation, and you could tell he’s a well-polished speaker. He outlined what was going to be covered, then told the audience about himself very quickly, which I appreciated.
The first session I attended at Affiliate Summit West 2011 was Randy Cassingham‘s
Creating a Successful Mastermind Group. I’ve been in a Mastermind Group in the past, and have organized one as well, which I didn’t feel worked as I had hoped it would. So I was looking forward to learning how to create a group that really worked for all involved.
