Every now and then in life, if you are lucky, you get to be a part of something that becomes very special to you.
That’s how I feel about being a part of the Niche Affiliate Marketing System Workshop recently held in Atlanta, affectionately known as NAMS 3.
The brain child of David Perdew, NAMS has quickly grown into the premiere Internet Marketing Conference on the Net. (I keep reminding David of the great line from JAWS, “You’re gonna needa bigger boat.”)
Why do I say that?
Here’s a few of the reasons:
- From the beginning NAMS was designed as a workshop, not a pitchfest. Participants actually get things done!
- Instructors stay for the entire 3 days of the workshop. We are there to help, not sell.
- The sessions are set up in tracks – beginning, intermediate and advanced – so there is something for everyone.
- You always hear that half of the value of a conference is the networking that you are able to do. To call what we do at NAMS networking does not do it justice. I think the better word is “fellowship.”
- Watching folks learn and do right away, and get results right away is such a kick. This helps to prevent the typical “post-conference let down” that causes most folks to put what they have learned on the shelf where is becomes “shelf-help.”
- For the last two NAMS we have created a product on Saturday morning and everyone can be selling it by the afternoon with 100% affiliate commission.
This year we created Strategies 4 Social Marketing with Willie Crawford, Kevin Riley, Joey Smith, Maritza Parra and me. David Perdew asked the panel 5 important questions about Social Marketing and the answers, tips, tools and strategies that came out our fantastic and are captured in the 60 minute audio Strategies 4 Social Marketing.
- Watching instructors learn from each other is so refreshing. I’ve been to so many conferences where experts hold onto their info like a sack of gold. Brainstorming with other experts that you trust is so cool…
- This is a special community. If you could not make it this time, you can get the recordings from the first 3 NAMS by clicking here. I’ll keep you informed about how to get registered at the lowest possible price and become a part of this community that meets again in August 2010.
- I’ve been using a favorite lyric lately from Dan Fogelberg that goes like this:
“It’s the chance of a lifetime, in a lifetime of chance. And it’s high time you joined in the dance.”
And THAT is what NAMS is all about….
