Tues, July 10 RMIUG mtg Affiliate Marketing: Make Money Sellin PDF Print E-mail

Just a quick reminder.

We hope to see you on Tuesday.


The Tuesday, July 10th meeting of the Rocky Mountain Internet Users
Group (RMIUG) will discuss "Affiliate Marketing: Make Money Selling
Other People's Stuff Online"

As legend has it, Jeff Bezos, CEO and founder of, chatted
with a woman at a cocktail party about how she wanted to sell books
about divorce on her web site. After that exchange, Bezos thought
about having the woman link her site to and receive a
commission on the book sales. This was the impetus for creating the
"first on the Web" Associates Program.

That was 1996 and, if you believe the legend, the Affiliate Marketing
industry was born.

10 years later, Affiliate Marketing has grown, according to Marketing
Sherpa, into a $6.5 Billion industry. Thousands of people, known as
affiliates, literally earn their livings (or, as in yours truly, some
extra coffee money), selling other people's stuff online. Stuff that
they never have to touch, ship, or handle in anyway.

Nice way to make money, no?

At our next meeting, we will explore Affiliate Marketing industry,
learn how it is structured, what the future holds for it, and get
insight from someone who earns his living as an affiliate.

We are pleased to welcome the following speakers

Bob Dunlap, director of marketing for ClickBank, one of the world's
largest online retailer for buyers and sellers of digitally delivered
products and services, has a long and successful career in the area of
planning, developing, launching, and marketing high tech products for
global markets. He came to ClickBank nearly two years ago and since
that time has worked closely with the company's nearly 11,000 product
vendors and 100,000 active affiliates. Bob will be addressing the
functionality of online networks and what the future holds for those
engaged with affiliate marketing.

Dan Murray (Dan@...) is Internet Marketing
Strategist at Ravenwood Marketing, a performance-based search engine
marketing firm in Boulder, and has spent the last five years as an
affiliate. He will be speaking from the affiliate perspective,
discussing various affiliate business models, networks and how
affiliate marketing works. Dan will also cover some economic
realities of the field as well as "a day in the life of an affiliate"
and some additional resources for affiliates.


The meeting is Tuesday, July 10th from 7:00 - 9:00 pm (with optional
6:30 pm start for refreshments and informal networking). The meeting
will be held at The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) at
1850 Table Mesa Drive in Boulder. To get to NCAR from the Boulder
Turnpike (US 36) or Broadway (US 93), take Table Mesa Drive west
towards the mountains for approximately 2.5 miles into the foothills.
NCAR is at the top of the hill. For door-to-door driving directions,
go to MapQuest (, click on Driving
Directions, enter your starting address, NCAR's address, and voila!
Park in the NCAR lot, go in the main door, and ask the guard to point
you to meeting, which is held in the main auditorium, right off the
lobby. The meeting is free and open to the public, but we may pass the
hat to help defray expenses.

Our meeting location seats about 120 people. That is usually enough
room to accommodate all attendees, but it's impossible for us to
predict how many people will show up for any given meeting. Seating is
always on a first-come, first serve basis, and in the event of more
attendees than seats, we won't be able to admit additional people into
the auditorium after all seats are filled.


I plan to be there, and I would think any affiliate marketer in Colorado would be interested as well. I've been a member of the RMIUG for awhile, but this is the first presentation I've seen on affiliate marketing. It's a nice combination since we have a guy from one of the major affiliate marketing providers as well as a user (I assume super user) of affiliate programs and can give us more insight into how to do this whole thing. I have a feeling this event will be well attended, so I plan on getting there early. If anyone wants to join me, please let me know.
