Day three at Affiliate Summit West 2011 was a great day. I started off the day with some coffee and decided to hang out with Luke Smith from Motive Interactive. Around 10am the exhibit hall?opened?up. Luke and I stopped by several booths and entered several contests wish us luck winning Ipads. After the exhibit hall I decided to go to the “Are You Buyers Mobile, Yet?” session. In this session they talked about how using services such a appmakr allow pretty much any business can make an app. Also how paypal and other merchants are making it easier for you to make purchases for pretty much anything using your phone to pay for food,clothes,apps etc. I'ts going to change the way we use our phones.
As I was leaving for lunch I ran into Shawn Collins Founder & Owner of Affiliate Summit. If you have never been to any of the Affiliate Summit events you should?defiantly?go to ASE in New York this summer.
Day one of Affiliate Summit West 2011 was pretty awesome. I decided to skip some of the sessions and head for the Meet Market since the Exhibit Hall did not open until Day two of Affiliate Summit West. It was packed. I stopped by the Media Trust booth and hung out with Peter Bordes founder and CEO of Media Trust he talked about?their?new platform for CPC and how this will?benefit?the affiliate industry. I personally think Media Trust is on to something big & will test out?their?new Performance Exchange?CPC bidding platform.

After hanging out at the Media Trust booth, I headed to one of my favorite networks booth Blue Global Media. They have grown into an amazing network over the last couple months. If your not with BGM you need to be! I highly recommend them they are very experienced affiliates & test the offers before they go live which is one thing I have not seen any other network do.

Later that night I decided to go to the ShareASale Under The Stars Party. I had an amazing time Tryst club was packed John Chow & Syed Balkhi were on the dance floor showing everyone up. Syed decided to start break dancing, good times.
