Affiliate Summit and My Busy Schedule!

By Ian Fernando

Affiliate Summit is literally around the corner and I have been busy with so many things to get ready for it. This is why I haven't blogged in a while, but I wanted to give you a heads up on what I am doing and where I will be at during affiliate summit east in NYC. So I have been working on 5 big projects and you probably know 3 of the 5. The other 2 are still in process and will probably be my 2012 goals.

But I want to let you know that I am speaking at Affiliate Summit. The panel I am on is a very controversial issue and I have brought it up a couple times on this blog. The topic is called "Industry Clash: Balancing CPS & CPA Marketing" with Greg Hoffman as the moderator, Logan Thompson, and Jason Rubacky. Tihs alone is a very interesting topic and does happen in our industry. If you are attending affiliate summit (which you should), you will notice a separation just by walking around the conference.

The CPS side tend to hang with each other and their age group, while the CPA side does the same. There are also some issues on who does and profit more than one another. This is why I think this panel will be an epic discussion because of our major differences, in the end we are all marketers.

One of my major goals is to get Split Piston, my multivariate test engine and Offer Snitch, my affiliate link monitoring platform. I am going to be pushing these platforms pretty hard as I think it is beneficial to the industry and I personally use it myself and have been using it for over 2 years. I am now just releasing it to the public as I know it can make a big difference in their campaigns.

Another big thing that is happening is my IANteract Affiliate Dinner sponsored by NDemand Affiliates. This private dinner is a great way for me to interact and leverage with like minded users and of course network at a more intimate level.

Affiliate Parties

I will be attending Clickbooth's Affiliate Awakening Party which is located at the Arena in NYC obviously. They have a pretty sick video for it as well...


After that I think I am going to head to the BDR party which is hosted by Ads4Dough and - 2 of the best guys in the industry that know what they are doing and have helped me a lot with my own personal business.

The details for the BDR Engage event is:

  • Event Venue: Greenhouse
  • Event Address: 150 Varick Street, New York, NY 10013
  • Event Start Date: 08-22-2011 Mon 09:00 PM(EST)
  • Contact: Ted Dhanik
  • Number: 212-807-7000
THEN... the most epic party of Affiliate Summit will most likely be the Affiliate Ball. Affiliate Ball has done an amazing job so far at becoming the party to be at. I have been to all their parties since they first appeared at ad-tech I believed. It has celebrity performances and ofcourse a club environment, cause I can dance son!
See everyone at Affiliate Summit East in NY!
