WOW! I am so stoked! Shawn Collins – one of the founders of Affiliate Summit - personally reached out to me and asked if I'd like to do a speech at the next Affiliate Summit in Las Vegas!
This just brought up a childhood memory when I was 17 I was visiting my brother in Houston, TX when I realized there was an upcoming Affiliate Summit taking place in Las Vegas.
Now if you've been to an Affiliate Summit before, you know the age limit to attend is minimum 21 – so when I read that line on their website, I was thinking I will personally reach out to Missy Ward and talk myself into the conference.
I had no self-doubt I can do it - I am naturally like that – when I set my mind to something, a goal or project I fear no obstacles. :)
The only thing I was missing were my business cards – I thought to myself, a professional business lady like myself needs nice business cards to be taken seriously at a conference. I was in a rush because...
I am on the way back to my new home – Barcelona as I'm writing this article. I just got done with an amazing Chinese business trip – spent some incredible time in Xi'an, China.
Leadbit and Yeahmobi invited me as a speaker to their Chinese Affiliate Meetup, which took place on Friday. More than 400 affiliates showed up, mostly Chinese attendees but you could meet people from Canada, Romania, Russia, Thailand, Malaysia and Hong Kong.
They had speakers from all around the world, Kokofai from the well-known STM forum was hosting the event and he did an outstanding job, he speaks Mandarin and English so we had a good understanding of what's happening. The biggest challenge in China was the language barrier because not many Chinese speak or understand English very well, but international attendees had the same problem with Mandarin. :) So to overcome this gap – every attendee was provided with a headset for translation, you could listen in to the...
June 9-12, 2017 – the weekend of super affiliates.
And by super affiliates I mean the top 50. From all around the world. Guys (and girls!!) from Indonesia, Russia, Ukraine, Thailand, Slovakia, Romania, Hungary, US and many more took the time to fly to beautiful Antalya, Turkey. We were treated like superstars by the AdCombo team – hands down to an elite weekend! They covered the flight, the all inclusive luxury resort stay and looked after all our wishes.
When we arrived to the resort, the beautiful Adcombo girls greeted us with warm hugs right in front of their main prize – the Ferrari California:
After the heartwarming greetings, the raffle chips, choco strawberry and some champagne followed. We...
Super exciting!! Affiliate World Conference in Berlin is going to take place in just 8 days!
All conferences have one thing in common – the outstanding opportunity to meet people. This is what I tell my clients and partners that networking is the most important element of a successful affiliate marketing business ,as no skills are worth a dime without the right connections. As they say your network is your net worth – so focus on building your social capital if you want a long-term successful business!
You get to meet amazing people at these shows and truth to be told Affiliate World Conferences has been the most exciting show I've been waiting for this year! AWA in Bangkok last year was a blast, it was truly an amazing experience for me.
AWE will be great to meet CPA networks face-to-face, to find good JV opportunities and to have a good time in the meantime. It's a must to attend the before and after parties because that's where the real magic...
Here I am flying home from the London meetup - 3 hours should be enough to write this article... :)
It has been over a year ago since we had the last STM meetup here in London. Looking back, things have changed a lot since then. I am not just a simple affiliate anymore... I remember in London I was a solo affiliate with part time remote workers. Things have grown to the next level and my operations are keep expanding.
I'm not only a full-time affiliate marketer but also a consultant for Facebook ads with 100s of consulting hours behind me. My horizon has expanded and I have realized how important it is to take advantage of the opportunities that come across me. A lot of people hit me up for guidance on how to run on FB and truth to be told I wasn't very keen on letting “my secrets” out. But then I look at things from a different perspective. First of all not many affiliates have the willpower to take action. FB's algo is super complex and it takes a lot of...
