What would winning the all expenses paid trip to Affiliate Summit West mean to me?
First of all, I've been doing affiliate marketing for nearly 10 years...and I've yet to "hit the big time" and be able to run my business full time. Sure, I've had some decent years. And I've had some bad ones (this one is closer to bad than decent). So hopefully this would give me that little extra push to get over the top.
Second, I'm not just some marketer pushing a bunch of junk. The sites I build are based on lessons I've learned, mostly the hard way. So I share those lessons, and the resources I've used, and in the process build a business around them. I'd love to be able to reach more people and help them get out of debt, buy their first house, or fix their back problems.
Third, I'm an eager student. For many years I sat alone and tried to build my business. Now, I'm focusing on building partnerships and learning from those who know what they are talking about (constantly buying the newest "get rich quick" program is definitely NOT the way to do this). So I would truly appreciate the opportunity to schmooze with the best affiliate marketers, and maybe even share a tip or two I've learned through the years.
Thanks for the opportunity, and good luck to whoever wins!
