Day One of Affiliate Summit West 2014 in Las Vegas was crazy busy in the Meet Market where affiliates, vendors, advertisers, agencies, marketers, bloggers, OPM’s, networks and Hulk Hogan interacted, creating business opportunities and networking.
At one point, the super energy generated knocked out the power in the room. Backup lights immediately came on creating a comfortable, dim ambiance, but I had to wonder if all of Las Vegas was in the dark! The lights in the hall were still on so we knew it was a temporary situation – phew…
I attended a session put on by John Chow, Syed Bhaki, John Rampton and Zac Johnson. These are all 6 figure bloggers who enjoy sharing their success stories, failures, comebacks, favourite money making sites and how to start a successful blog. They all agreed there have been many failed projects in their pasts, much controversy, hate and love. Learning to deal with the problems and move on rather than giving up was great experience, they said.
An interesting tidbit John Chow shared was that he now regrets naming his blog JohnChow.com because no one will ever want to buy it! So, keep that in mind when you’re starting your blog…
If you every wonder if blogging is profitable, I met a man who has over 350 blogs. He outsources everything now, from the wordpress setup to writing posts and monetizing – and he only “manages” the whole production. I’m thinking the management part would be a nightmare – lol!
I spent time in the Blogger Lounge, enjoying meeting Heather Diamani of BlendHappy, catching up with old friends and making new friends.
Day One ended with the annual Share A Sale party at the Chateau Nightclub – an indoor/outdoor venue in the Eiffel Tower.
