Oh, it’s that time, Friends. No, no, not August. It’s almost time to head down to the next big marketing conference to meet new friends, share some knowledge, and generally cause a ruckus. This time it’s Affiliate Summit East that is just two weeks away and Rae and myself who will be making the journey. Can you even believe it’s that time already? ME NEITHER!
First, the bad news. If you waited to buy your tickets, it seems like ASE is already sold out! Keep an eye on the registration page, though, as they’ll be opening up a small number of tickets as they process cancellations. Today could be your lucky day.
If you’re going to the show, you’ll want to make time to check out Rae during Monday’s SEO Site Review/Clinic where she’ll be handing out advice alongside friends Michael Gray and Greg Boser. Make sure you hit it and offer up your site to some famous faces of SEO. I hear it only hurts a little.
If you won’t be attending ASE this time around, you’ll want to tune into the Outspoken Media blog to stay up to date with our liveblogging coverage. I’ll be around to cover what’s happening in and out of the session rooms. You can check out my schedule for that below. Also use it to keep tabs on where I’ll be throughout the day so you can come up and say hello! Or, you know, to bring me snacks. I like cookies.

12:00pm-1:00pm: Fast Track Your Business with Outsourcing

Sounds like fun, right?
One last note: If you’re attending Affiliate Summit, I’d also recommend you secure a ticket for Audience Conference before it sells out. Audience Conference will take place on August 14 (the day PRIOR to Affiliate Summit) and will get you up close and personal to people like Chris Brogan, Chris Pearson, Loren Feldman, Jason Calacanis and others. It’s a unique conference that blends business and stand up. Why on earth would you miss it?
Hope to see you in New York City! And if we will, let us know in the comments!
