#ASW15 – Day 1 Meeting The Industry Leaders

#ASW15: Affiliate Marketing Summit West 2015 – Day 1

One of the coolest aspects of the Affiliate Marketing Summit was the generosity of the industry leaders. Everyone that attended was extremely friendly and approachable, and willing to have a quick chat or pose for a picture.

Here we are with leading internet blogger John Chow

During the Rise of the Six Figure Bloggers session, many lessons are shared about how to generate a six figure income.

Take-home messages from Rise of the Six Figure Bloggers:

  • Start your email list immediately, even before your attempt to monetize your blog
    • John Chow calculates that his email list is worth $500 per subscriber per year, and Matthew Woodward calculates his list to be worth $45 per person per year.
  • Hang our where you audience lives – Matthew spends a lot of time in the Warrior Forum. Get involved with the community, and ask and answer questions.
  • Be consistent with your blogging schedule. If you commit to blogging everyday, then post every day.
    • John Chow told a story of the 90 Day YouTube Challenge he started, he challenged a group of people to post one video a day for 90 days. Over 95% of those who joined failed to complete the challenge. Everyone can start something, the key to success is to keep on doing it.
  • The big money is ultimately made from promoting your own products: bring prospects through the sales funnel of free products, tripwire products and then high-value products.

 

As newbies to the field of Affiliate Marketing we were really quite excited to finally meet those whose books we had read, blogs we had absorbed and podcasts we commuted to work with each day.
