Today I was a special guest at the Rocky Mountain Affiliate Marketing Association's meeting. It's a local organization (here in Utah) of companies running online affiliate marketing programs. I guess they wanted to get the affiliate marketer's perspective on how to attract the best affiliates and keep them happy.To be honest, I don't recall much of what I said, but I'm sure it was all very inspiring. Mostly I wanted to open it up to questions to see what they wanted to know. They all seemed pretty interested in what I have to say. It's rare that they get the chance to talk face to face with an affiliate like that. I know I haven't met many affiliate managers I work with in person. It was also interesting to hear a bunch of affiliate managers talk about the world of affiliate marketing, to see kind of what makes them tick...too bad I had to leave before they got into any of the real secrets of the trade.
The meeting was at 1800 CONTACTS in Draper, where they have a full-time chef. The grilled ahi was highly recommended by the chef, but I decided to go with the prime rib--it was very good. The heath/chocolate chip cookies also got my stamp of approval for dessert.
If by chance anyone from the meeting reads this and has any questions, call or email anytime.
Thanks again for letting me sit in on your meeting!
