Attending conferences and industry events can be a very valuable experience if you’re looking to expand your brand as a blogger or marketer. I recently ran across a post Unique Blog Design’s Nate Whitehill published, on this very topic. You might find it’s worth the read.
One conference that holds tremendous networking opportunities is Affiliate Summit, co-founded by IZEA Blogger Advisory Board member Missy Ward. Affiliate Summit is the leading global conference and tradeshow for the Affiliate Marketing industry, and having exhibited there earlier this year I can recommend that it’s well worth your time and money. The next show is in Las Vegas from January 11-13, 2009.
