There a bunch of marketers who live in San Diego, and that makes it even more sad that our Meetup202’s are almost non-existent. Hopefully, things are turning around for the better.
This is the second meetup being organized by Internet Dynamix. They are a San Diego based affiliate network and have been around for awhile. Last year, they organized the first 202 meetup. It was really small and held in a little yogurt shop downtown. But like most meetups, whether they are Meetup202’s or full-blown Affiliate Summits, they are what you make of them.
Back then, Internet Dynamix was called Pinnacle Dream Media, and I had never heard of them. Since the turnout was so small (I’m talking like 12 people) I was able to chat with a few guys from PDM. I ended up signing up with their network and had a couple of profitable campaigns. The point is, if I hadn’t gone, I never would have made that money.
Another conversation I had was with a guy who’s well known in the industry. I had no idea who he was until someone else told me. But we talked about PPV and some offers. After a few minutes, I could tell he was way more experienced than I was. Because of this, I decided I had no “secret” campaigns, that he didn’t already know about. I actually started mentioning a campaign I was running along with some specifics. This is, obviously, something I don’t usually do. But after I did, the conversation got WAY more interesting. As soon as I shared, he shared back and I got some pretty good ideas. But I would say besides the tips, I think the most important thing was that light bulb going off in my head. Sharing can be very beneficial.
So back to the upcoming meetup. This looks like the first “real” Meetup202 in San Diego. The speaker line up looks pretty good and the venue is pretty nice. Seau’s is a cool sports bar & grill and it should be a good time. I hope to see you guys there.
