Affiliate Summit West 2015

I missed it last year so am really looking forward to getting back to Vegas for some blackjack, craps and roulette. No meetings before midday this time, live and learn! I first went to affiliate summit in 2012 and in my opinion it’s the best show of the year. The  location, the parties, the sheer volume of people that attend. It’s not one to be missed! Hope to see everyone,...

Big Brands Screwed By Facebook Because Of ViralNova

We were sold on spending huge budgets to gain Facebook page likes with the promise of being able to publish content to those fans for free. Facebook has now done a U-turn and is saying that in future only 1-2% of your Facebook fans will see organic content and that you will need to pay again to get your content in front of those fans on each post.

EWA Gone Under

EWA Gone Under

It’s not nice to see any company fail (especially when they owe so much to so many) but never in this industry have I seen it happen to a more deserving character. Goodbye Ryan Eagle and the joke/scam that was EWA.

Las Vegas 2013, Affiliate Summit West, iDates etc.

Four shows and countless parties in 8 days. Here are some pics from Las Vegas this January: Some takeaways I had from this trip: Don’t ever book meetings before midday and preferably later still. Even if you can party till 4am and get up and sober for a meeting at 10am the chances are the person you are meeting wont. Blackjack is fun but the real party is on the...
