Previously, ThinkTank was by invitation only, and everything but your travel to the event was covered by ShareASale. This time around, they opened it up to everybody, charged a whopping $50 for the event, and you were on your own for mostly everything else.
ShareASale ThinkTank is less than 2 weeks away, and if you’re doing business with them but not going, you’re missing out.
This is a great event, traditionally held in Q4 by wisely moved to the generally slower Q2 this year. I was lucky enough to get to attend the ThinkTank 2010 event, and will not only be attending this one, but also speaking at the “Deep Dish Datafeeds” session.
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.
I left Buffalo on Sunday, and made my way to San Francisco via Boston (huh? Yeah, not quite direct) and arrived in the early afternoon. Upon landing I found Kristin Kinsey looking for a ride, so we shared the Mercedes I had hired to the resort. The car looked tiny when it pulled up, but had lots of room on the inside.
