Niche Affiliate Marketing Workshop – You Gotta Go!

Learning at NAMS

Learning at NAMS

What makes the difference between struggling to learn how to make money online and actually doing it? For me it was meeting the right people who were more interested in teaching me valuable information than selling an ebook. The first Niche Affiliate Marketing Workshop (NAMS) was held in January and it was my first Internet Marketing conference. Wow! I wish it had come months earlier. I could have jump started things a lot sooner.

To be honest, I wasn’t sure you could make a business in Internet Marketing before this workshop. I thought IM might be just people selling stuff to each other and waiting for newbies to show up with fresh cash. All that was cleared up literally on the first day of NAMS. We worked like dogs! I fell into bed exhausted every night but incredibly excited about all I had learned that day and actually put into practice.  As you can see from the picture, we were actively engaged in the process. The guy sitting next to me in the yellow shirt became a good friend and is one of the most interesting guys on Twitter. You should definitely follow @DanRMorris. The next day I moved to the front of the room to not miss a single word.

This was not a pitchfest as they say in the business. We learned detailed step-by-step information about affiliate marketing from Lynn Terry (Click Newz), article marketing from Jeff Herring (The Article Marketing Guy), niche marketing from David Perdew (founder of MyNAMS), creating joint ventures from Willie Crawford (founder of the Inner Circle) and building a successful business from Mark Hendricks (Internet Success System). Jeff even got us to write at least one article in class and submit it to an article directory using his easy template system. For some of us, it was our very first article.

Now all these folks will be back for NAMS2 in August but this workshop will be even bigger and better. David Perdew, the mastermind behind NAMS, discovered that one size doesn’t fit all and the class represented varying levels of expertise. So he has assembled 14 instructors so that each person can learn at their own level in separate groups. No one will be left behind.

Do yourself a favor. Get over to Atlanta August 14-17. Through June 15, the cost is only $197. I know you have spent more than that on ebooks sitting on your hard drive! Click Here to get the full scoop and the workshop itinerary. See you there!

[2011 UPDATE] NAMS6 is in Atlanta August 19-21. Price through May 30, 2011 is $297 using coupon code 100special or take the 3 pay plan of $99 each after applying the code.

    Thanks for posting, I’ll definitely be subscribing to your blog.

    Thanks for the useful info. It’s so interesting

  • Loretta says:

    I am really looking forward to NAMS in August! I am pinching together my pennies to grab a ticket this week. My husband is actually just as excited as I am about this workshop, just from hearing me talk about it and the opportunity to learn more about affiliate marketing.

  • chriscobb says:

    I think dividing the group into experience levels will especially help the new people get up and running faster.

  • David says:

    It is good to see that there really are people in this business who care whether newbies learn hoe to market online. I am a newbie and I get very discouraged sometimes and think what’s the use. But I am going to hang in there because I am sure I will find a mentor sooner or later. I am thinking about joining a membership site.

    • Chris says:

      For sure hang in there! The basic principles of business are really no different online than what you probably know from your offline experiences. The difference for me was attending the NAMS conference where I met the people face to face that would end up being my mentors (see below). It was well worth the cost of getting to Atlanta for a few days. So my first advice would be to register and go to NAMS in August.

      My second advice would be to join Bob “The Teacher” Jenkins’ IM Success Library. He is a terrific teacher of the tactics of Internet marketing.

      My third advice would be to check out Mark Hendricks’ ISS program if you want to take all the pieces and put them together into a long-term online business plan.

      Between all three resources, you’ll be able to learn everything you need to know.

  • Michael says:

    I’ve never been able to make it to a workshop like this before but I would love to go to something like it. Hopefully one will take place soon, and a little more north than Atlanta. 😉

    • Christine Cobb says:

      Hey Michael — I think Atlanta will be the spot for the foreseeable future. I just got back from NAMS8 and it was awesome. Great to see so many people making great strides in their business. NAMS9 will be February 8-10, 2013. The pre-sale is going on this week at

    Thank you for sharing Christine. I myself attended Affiliate Summit in Denver about a week ago. I have to say I’ve got a lot of inspiration. I think it is very important for a beginning IMer to meet successful and experienced people. Otherwise it is very lonely business and it is mentally tough to overcome all obstacles by yourself and easy to become discouraged. And yes, taking action always must follow the process of studying:) Unfortunately won’t be able to make it to Atlanta.

    • Christine Cobb says:

      Hey Adam — I’m glad you got to go to Affiliate Summit. You really nailed it… “it is mentally tough to overcome all obstacles by yourself”. One of the things I really enjoy at the NAMS Live workshops is sitting in the lobby area with a group and discussing what is going on in my business. I love that everyone knows what I’m talking about and the advice I’ve gotten in these impromptu settings has helped big time!
