Another affiliate summit has come and gone and I’ve had some time to relax. I think it’s funny how you go to a conference for a little vacation time along with it and you just end up being more tired when you come back. But that’s what’s going to happen when your conference is in vegas.
My wife and I got into Vegas early Saturday and had the entire day to visit places we have not been to the previous trips. We did a lot of walking, got our badges early and made sure we hit the Treasure Island gym to get in our daily P90X2 workout. Since we’ve been on this health kick it’s now just plain natural to workout everyday no matter where you are at. Even on vacation.
Sunday was my big day of the conference. I had two events lined up and missed the entire meet market. My wife walked the floor and said it was huge. I had a six hour private meetup with Affplaybook at the Palms during the day.
Right after that I headed back to Caesars and got in on the IMGrind Mastermind session. This concluded around 9pm so I headed back to T.I. to get ready for the night.
Some of you might have thought it was dumb to go to these types of meetings to hear what people are doing in the space. I have a different opinion obviously. The two meetings were nearly 180 degrees apart from each other. I was really happy to listen to the different opinions of everyone that spoke. It just goes to show you that internet marketing is huge and you can find anything out there that will make you money.
Monday we woke up late and got in a workout and headed to the show floor. While I was walking around and checking out the booths it made me realize how my goal of attending ASW is very different than others. Everyone that goes has an agenda on why they are there. Sunday, I met people that didn’t even buy a pass and had no intention of going to the show because everything that they were there for was private meetings outside of the show.
This got me thinking about ASW ’13 and how it will be different for me. Will I even buy a pass knowing that just a few weeks ago I spent less than 3 hours on the show floor?
Monday night was the affiliate ball party. Nelly was the headliner and it was great. Last year with 3 Six Mafia I had a great time but felt like it wasn’t as good. We did not stay for the very end because of a 9am flight on Tuesday.
Affiliate Summit West 2012 was a great time and I got to meet some new and old friends. The information I gathered was great and can’t wait to make 2012 my best year in internet marketing.
