Affiliate Ball ASE locks in Gary Vaynerchuk to host the VIP hour + Special Performer!

Posted by Ad Hustler | Posted in Big Pimpin' | Posted on 12-05-2016

This upcoming official party of the Affiliate Summit is proud to announce that we’ve locked in another legend to be a part of the Affiliate Ball and he’s not an artist, he’s a successful money maker!

Gary Vaynerchuk builds businesses. Fresh out of college he took his family wine business and grew it from a $3M to a $60M business in just five years. Now he runs VaynerMedia, one of the world’s hottest digital agencies. Along the way he became a prolific angel investor and venture capitalist, investing in companies like Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Uber, and Birchbox before eventually co-founding VaynerRSE, a $25M investment fund.

Gary is also known for his motivational viral videos and his podcasts Usually you can only get to see Gary as a keynote speaker at huge mega conferences but this time we have a super special speaking engagement with Gary during our VIP hour during the Affiliate Ball. (VIP’s will be issued out by the sponsors during the Summit)

Darren Blatt, organizer of the Ball says, “The Affiliate Ball is always looking to bring in the best talent and sometimes we think outside of the box. I don’t want people to stereotype the Ball as a hip hop only party because it’s so much more then that. The Ball is a place for all marketers in our biz to come together to have fun, learn, do deals and leave with memories that will last a life time. Gary is definitely one of the biggest voices of our generation and our audience can learn a lot from listening to him. Big thanks to GoSocialAffiliate for sponsoring the VIP Hour session with Gary Vaynerchuk”.

Affiliate Summit East 2013 Day 1 Observations – Homeless Zombie Addition #ASE13

Posted by Ad Hustler | Posted in Ad Networks, Affiliate Marketing, Big Pimpin', Doing Business | Posted on 19-08-2013

If you’ve been reading my ramblings for a while you know how I cover conferences.  There are no long well written posts here.  I prefer to just post my thoughts and observations….granted, my thoughts can be kind of weird.

  • Philadelphia is filled with homeless zombie types wandering all over the place.  More people have asked me for 33 cents then have tried to give me a business card so far.
  • The bigger/more expensive the watch, the smaller the penis (and likely the sooner that persons company is going out of business)
  • A lot of people at Affiliate Summit don’t do affiliate marketing anymore, which there’s nothing wrong with.  A lot of people seem to have moved to more stable areas of internet marketing.
  • There seems to be a marked comeback of nutraceuticals which as just as uncompliant at Acai so expect another crackdown sooner than later.
  • Fake it till you make it is alive and kicking. I was talking to some insiders about affiliate networks.  Some of the affiliate networks you think are doing well, aren’t.  I learned yesterday that one network that you would think kills it every month is doing about $250,000 revenue per month and making about $30,000 and then still having to pay about 8 employees.  I say it all the time but KNOW WHO YOU’RE WORKING WITH & make sure you aren’t extending too much credit to these networks.
  • The parties sucked pretty bad last night exept for Badger Ball which was pretty cool.  If you want a badass party check out Affiliate Ball tonight!
  • I feel bad for newbie affiliates who are trying to make it and live the dream.  It’s going to be a long, hard, ugly road.

That’s all for now.  Talk to ya’ll tommorow.  If you see me today, say hello!
