On tuesday night of Affiliate Summit Myself, Ian Fernando, Jonathan Volk, Jim Banks & DK were sitting around having a lot of laughs at the Parasol Bar at The Wynn. DK pulled up my observations post from day 1 (since he’d never read AdHustler.com before) and laughed hard. I mean really hard. We decided to as a group come up with some observations about Affiliate Summit. Some are mine, some are DKs, some are the groups. Here they are:
- Even if you don’t have business cards you can still win 1000 in a business card drawing. (It Happened)
- If you are at an affiliate conference to market your network, don’t have a line of people, waiting to speak to you about the money you haven’t paid them.
- If you are going to have babes working in your booth, make sure they at least know what affiliate marketing is.
- If you are trying to impress a girl, don’t tell them “I have been with the same girl since I was 14 so I have had time to practice being “the creepy guy”. (Actual comment overheard).
- The Wynn and Encore are such a labyrinth that Jason Rubaky, covered in tattoos was seen riding a hover round (old people scooter) around the hotels and parking it in his room.
- If you want to want to lose money at a bar or make everyone at a party uncomfortable, invite DK and Ad Hustler and have them talk about how they don’t drink, smoke or take drugs.
- Don’t think that just because you spent $2000 for your hotel room for the week that you can use your cell phone without holding it against the window.
- While someone is peeing is not the appropriate time to introduce ones self.
- Shoemoney knows how to draw a crowd to a product launch. He had Rob Hustle with Dancers introduce the session
- There is a huge difference between a good session & a bad one. Not all sessions work, not all speakers are good
- I like people who can see the comedy in themselves – don’t take yourself too seriously
- Don’t ever ask someone how much they make. If you do, you deserve your head dunked in the toilet
- Whether you are “big” in internet marketing or “small” be nice to everyone. Small fish become big fish and big fish fall. Make friends, not enemies. Treat people with respect unless they prove they deserve otherwise
- Don’t talk to someone when they are on the phone
- I had the undying need to write my name in the blue pads in the Wynn urinals every time I peed.
What can you add?
