One of the main focus of the Affiliate Summit is face to face networking. To make sure affiliate have lots of face time with affiliate networks, the show features a Meet Market on the opening day. Merchants have tables set up to meet with affiliates to discuss their affiliate programs and build relationships. Vendors that cater to affiliates and merchants also have tables to share information about their products and services.
In addition to the Meet Market, day 1 features knowledge sessions from leading affiliate companies and marketers. The highlight session was put on by John Hasson with his speech entitled, Which PPC Engines Work And How?
Tonight, we have a dinner party with Ian Fernando and then a party with Share a Sale aboard some big boat call the Odyssey. I thought we would be taking a cruise of the harbor but apparently, the boat is just going to be docked so people can come and go as they please. Look for more coverage tomorrow.
