I just arrived back home from Ad-tech in san francisco. It was pretty awesome being there and meeting all the networks in person and networking with super affiliates.
I will tell you this, the big money is in backend of it all. Forget trying to go out and promote a offer, create your own and get it onto these networks.
I had the opportunity to meet shoemoney.com as well, hes a kewl guy. I spoke to him for a bit.
Also saw the founder of Wikipedia, and the founder of Digg speak. Those are two great people with a tremendous amount of success online as well.
I was able to shake hands with some of my affiliate managers, and also networked with some advertisers who own these offers everyone is running as well.
If there is one coming to your city or close by, I def. encourage you to go out and network with these people, leave them your business card and establish profound relationships.
I am looking at the possibility of 2 JV's with some top marketers, and I was only there for a few hours.
thank you for reading!
