Affiliate Summit East 2011 Part 2
Early Bird Whiteboard
In the first video reviewing Affiliate Summit East, I mentioned the early bird whiteboard that I thought was a real gem for attendees to take in.
It started at 8 am on Monday and Tuesday and was a really great session critiquing web sites and offering really helpful information.
It was run by Eric Nagel, but there were other knowledgeable people in the room who were experts in their own right so that made for some very good feedback.
But there were a couple of other really good resources.
The Bloggers’ Lounge ( also the Press Room)
The bloggers’ lounge was a room set aside for the press and bloggers covering the conference and was a place where you could find people who are nice to know.
In my case I ran into Vinny O’Hare by chance walking down a main lounge and introduced myself. I listen to his podcasts that he produces with Deborah Carney and wanted meet them to tell them how much I appreciated their work.
Well he invited me to stop in and see him and meet Deborah in the Bloggers Lounge when I got a chance. And that’s what I did.
The place was where presenters and big industry names hung out and blogged about what was happening.
So that was another great opportunity to get to meet really interesting folks.
Ask The Experts
The third resource was called Ask The Experts and was an end of the second day event where you could join a group run by an expert and ask any questions you wanted.
In my case I wanted to get information about setting up a Facebook page properly and I went to the Facebook table and learned a hell of a lot in the hour I spent there. It was run by Justin Rondeau who was a great presenter. Lots of questions from the group made for a really great session.
So there you have it. I made this video to fill out the information about what was available to you at Affiliate Summit and hope this will help in planning your own agenda if you decide to go to Affiliate Summit West or if you return to New York for Affiliate Summit East next year.
Take a look at the video and enjoy.
