Affiliate Summit East 2010 , New York is an event that takes place every year.
And every year I had this dream, to be part of such event, but for different reasons each time, it didn’t workout.
This year I made it.
You see, I have been dealing with affiliate marketing since many years now.
I created products and took action as a merchant, I promoted other merchants products on my main website (TPK) and I have been following the market and reading a lot about it. You can read more about it here
Hmm…. What is actually Affiliate Marketing?

So, what was going on at the event?
At first, I enjoyed the Meet Market. The Meet Market was an extended session of face to face networking between merchants, publishers and affiliate people. Merchant had tables set to meet with affiliates and everyone discuss their affiliate programs, cut deals and shacked hands. Vendors that cater to affiliates and merchants will also had tables to share information about their products and services. Each table was a meeting spot for teaching, learning, closing deals, creating partnerships and finding new opportunities.
In addition, I enjoyed the different booths, experienced panels of experts in SEO, link building, PPC, social, affiliate marketing and more. I heard different lectures and updates about new web startups, services and applications and discover exciting new ideas that are helping to grow and highlight affiliate marketing industry.
It was a fun, educating and productive event 🙂
Hope to be there next year!!
