Apparently fall is conference season if you’re into marketing. Dan Kennedy is doing his InfoSummit 2008, Armand Morin just announced his BigSeminar 12, and Russell Brunson and Stu McLaren are co-hosting the Affiliate Incubator. I’m sure there are many more happening, but I’m not on everyone’s mailing list =).
I’ve been involved in Russell’s mentoring program for a few months now, so I kind of get the inside track on their information. Kind of like an early warning system. Anyways, I’ve just registered for the Affiliate Incubator in September, and it looks like it is going to be a great seminar. It’s completely geared towards affiliate marketing, covering the usual topics such as traffic generation, pay per click, etc, but from new perspectives. I’ve been following many of the presenters for quite a while now and I know they’ve got tons of great strategies up their sleeves. I was on a webinar yesterday by Stu and Russell and the info they gave away there was really great stuff. A lot of new stuff I hadn’t heard before, and that was only the teaser for the seminar!
For instance, Mike Koenigs and Frank Sousa are the guys behind Traffic Geyser. Traffic Geyser is a really cool bit of software that allows you to submit a video clip to over 40 popular video sharing sites. It also strips out the audio and submits that to podcast directories. You can then attach keywords and a description to the video, and the idea is that it very quickly gains top rankings in the search engines. Ideally, you target low traffic keywords, so you still really need to do your keyword research. In fact, Traffic Geyser is so cool, I’ve just decided to do a post specifically on that. Look for that in the next day or so. Mike and Frank are truly video marketing experts, and video marketing is one of the biggest new waves to hit the internet in the last year or so.
I’m looking forward to what the creators of Traffic Geyser have to say, but the other presenters are also top of their field as well. Russell and Stu are both presenting, and what they have to say is worthy of their own posts. Look for that soon. Then there are a few “Mr. X” presenters that are being billed as revolutionary and controversial. All in all it’s shaping up to be a great seminar full of incredible new tactics that I’m really hoping will help explode my business.
So anyways, I’m going to Affiliate Incubator 2008 (Sept 25-27). If you’re planning to go as well, leave a comment below and perhaps we can meet in Dallas!
