Running a successful email or internet marketing company isn’t just about doing business on the internet, it’s also about making the right connections and taking advantage of everything this industry has to offer. A perfect example of this would be to attend any of the many different marketing conferences that are taking place almost every day across the United States.
While there might be a lot more daily activity in places like Silicon Valley for smaller get-togethers and networking groups, there are definitely some larger events that you should add to your list as “do not miss”. Even with the West coast being well-known for all of their internet startups, the East coast has quite a bit of their own success and activity of their own as well. New York City obviously is one of the most active and hottest startup locations in the world today, which also makes it a great location for some of the world’s best internet marketing conferences as well.
We’ve listed four of our favorites below.
Affiliate Summit East
In the world of affiliate marketing, Affiliate Summit has become the event to attend, exhibit or speak at. What started out as a small one-day event with a couple hundred people, has now grown into a West and East coast event with over 5,000 attendees at each. When it comes to finding industry experts and networking opportunities, it’s important to add Affiliate Summit to your list as it’s always going to draw the most interest and business opportunities. This conference isn’t just a must for anyone with lead generation and affiliate marketing on their plate, it’s for anyone doing business on the internet today.
Affiliate Summit is held twice per year. One in New York City (July/Aug) and Las Vegas (January).
