Affiliate Summit Tips from Shawn Collins

I interview Shawn Collins, via fake satellite, on today’s Daily Flip show. Shawn is the co-owner of the Affiliate Summit event, taking place (this time) at the Rio hotel and casino in Las Vegas in February 2008. Shawn answers some questions like “Can I still get a press pass?” and “What’s the top piece of advice for a new attendee?”, plus more.

Will Google Try To Own Affiliate Marketing Like Everything Else?

dreamgooglehe2.jpgAs I walking up to do my speech on blogging at the last Affiliate Summit event in Vegas, a gentleman got out of his chair and stopped me to say hello. He introduced himself as a product manager from Google, gave me his card, and told me he was looking forward to hearing this presentation in particular.

How’s that for pressure?

Turns out, we communicated after the show and he agreed with my ideas and like my presentation. Looking back at the moment, and seeing all the news the last few days about Google’s move into the affiliate marketing space, you just have to wonder…

(insert dream sequence dreamy music clip here)

Was Google scouting the Affiliate Summit in preparation for this move?

How long will it be before the Affiliate Summit event is the size of Ad-Tech with a Google booth bigger than the dining area?

Can Google harness the essence of affiliate marketing on a grand scale and make it work?

Will Google buy the Affiliate Summit from Shawn and take it global? Will Shawn let them?

Will Google try to use their power to rename the term affiliate marketing into something more, well, better?

(end dreamy dream music)

Feel free to leave your answers and thoughts in the comments below. I know Shawn will be here soon to deny that he’ll sell to Google, but c’mon Shawn, everyone has a price. :)
