Affiliate Summit Raleigh Meetup Group Recap


We had our first meet up yesterday at the cozy Mimi’s restaurant.  Around 8 people showed up to our first meet up.  We all introduced ourselves and what our businesses do.  Apparently we got a good mix of Affiliate Networks, Advertisers, Newbie’s and SEO. I, Gemi Hartojo the Director of Online Marketing at Atomicleads.com created a presentation that spoke about the basics of Affiliate Marketing, how it can it help grow your business and if you are not doing this already…how to get started!  
  
If you missed us, you can find this presentation on our Meet Up Group – Affiliate Summit Raleigh Meet Up !  Please join our group to get access!

Although we had a mix of seasoned affiliates and newbie’s the conversation was exciting and dynamic!  After lunch and introductions, due to the lack of plugs at Mimi’s, we crowded around a booth table and propped open my laptop and went through the slides.  This was super great because at each slide everyone chimed in with their own ideas and commentary out of that we got super great tips and even spoke about issues in Affiliate Marketing.  I think we are off to a great start... and look like everyone is eager to meet up again next month!

Our key take a ways – As advertisers want more for their buck affiliate marketing, although not easy, allow advertisers to really make their dollars count.  Affiliate Marketing allows you to be part of their marketing budget and really by passing the traditional agency format.  We touched on all the key players in the industry, what to be aware of, also we spoke about generating great content that is beneficial for the customer and also shows seriousness of the affiliate wanting to gain authority in that niche.



Hope you can Meet Up with us Next Month!
