Affiliate marketing conferences worth attending this year
Keen to meet the top affiliate marketers and advertisers in the industry but unsure how and where? In this article, we’ve decided to share large-scale affiliate marketing conferences happening in 2022 to help navigate your way.
Affiliate marketing conferences: waste of time or a must?
Most affiliate conferences, both online and offline, are not free. So, the question is: are they worth it? Well, it’s up to the attendees to decide what’s in it for them to visit these events. Let’s talk about why even top affiliate marketing experts should attend conferences from time to time.
Whether it is general info about affiliate marketing or some useful advice for companies on how to open up a new revenue stream using affiliate marketing, conferences help you acquire knowledge that’s not available elsewhere. Most experts just don’t share this information online unless there is an occasion, like a conference or forum. And we know the sky’s the limit when it comes to acquiring knowledge.
Even if you have only learned something new about your area of expertise, that’s already perfect. One day, this knowledge will pay off.
Networking is the most popular reason people attend conferences, forums, and other similar events. But what is networking all about? It involves exchanging ideas and information among people specialized in one sphere or sharing a common interest. Networking is usually done in an informal social environment, for example, during a break between performances or at the afterparty following the conference.
Affiliate marketing conferences may give you a unique opportunity to connect with world-class experts, local specialists, startups, or unicorn companies with exclusive knowledge and experience. You can ask whatever questions are on your mind about affiliate marketing. At the same time, it won’t be annoying because all the people at the conference joined for one common goal – to exchange ideas. Not all conferences are dull. Remember to make it an experience for yourself.
Below we share the top affiliate marketing conferences you should consider attending in 2022.
