Day 1 of Affiliate Summit has come and gone. As usual I have some observations/thoughts so here goes….
Speaking solo is way harder then speaking on a panel.
It literally seems like 75% of the old CPA guys are gone from this industry
The guys that are left don’t seem to be using Affiliate Marketing as their main business model. Everyone from back in the day seems to now own a product, service or network. It makes sense because the stability of CPA offers is like the stability of a drunk giant riding a unicycle.
Meet Market was packed and a lot of new companies in there.
NDemand Affiliates & Ian Fernando throw a hell of a party. Great dinner and every attendee got a pair of designer sunglasses…..now that’s baller….I missed the Ian Fernando party bus though.
Affiliate Summit is doing a much better job at check in. I remember years ago when there were huge lines at check in. Now they have so many people working that it’s nice and smooth.
I’m hoping that i’m not starting to see history repeat itself but i’m fearful that I am. As soon as I see new companies pop up that are spending way too much money on showing how successful they are…..well…that never seems to end well.
The amount of people that read this blog amazes even me…and I thank each and every one of you for that.
Have any observations? Post a comment!
