Attending webinars and seminars about internet marketing is a great idea. Not only can you learn more about things you’re not currently knowledgeable on, but you can also do some serious networking that could result in new ventures and joint ventures.
As affiliate marketing and internet marketing increase in popularity major cities are starting to host more affiliate marketing events such as:
- Affiliate Summit
- Ad Tech
- Commission Junction University
- SMX – Search Marketing Expo
- Smart Online Profit Systems
- And more
There are dozens of events around the globe every year so whether you’re an Aussie internet marketer with experience, a dabbling marketer in Canada, or a newbie in the Philippines, you can find a lot of convention opportunities.
By attending events hosted by expert industry gurus and rubbing elbows with fellow internet marketers you can do a lot for your business including staying ahead of what’s hot so that you don’t miss out on groundbreaking techniques and opportunities in the industry.
Sure, these events often have items available that you can buy, but the hosts know that people need real value if they’ll consider buying a ticket next year so workshops and presentations are sure to be filled with cutting edge information.
Not many people in an internet marketer’s personal life can truly understand the excitement and passion in this business. One of the things about working from home that can be a bit on the negative side is the solitude. Meeting and greeting with others at these events can be exhilarating when you realise you are in the presence of people that truly understand your challenges and know what it meants to get excited about statistics and conversion rates. And if you’ve not yet met with someone making a living doing the same thing you’re doing, you could be missing out on a great network and learning opportunity.
