I’m waiting for class to start on the 3rd day of the Niche Affiliate Marketing Systems workshop. For you beginning bloggers and affiliate marketers a conference like this is gold. Unlike many seminars this is not a pitchfest and the gurus have taught us marketing lessons that they sell for big money.
Maybe just as important are the friendships and alliances that we are forming with each other. The group is very diverse ranging from folks who do not even have a website to those who have several websites and are making money online. We have people who know WordPress, copywriting, article writing, video making, teleseminar techniques, Google Adwords, traffic building, etc. I have personally benefited just from sitting around at lunch or in between classes talking to other class members about my particular issues. I’ll pass on many of the resources I have learned in future posts. To start go to Sprout New Media. Lisa Wood is incredibly smart about setting up and optimizing your website. More later.[July 2012 Update: I’m now an instructor at MyNAMS. Won’t you join me there?]
