What Happens in Vegas Shouldn't Stay in Vegas
Many here at Wealthy Affiliate know of the incentive that Kyle & Carson offer, for us to get 300 "Premium" Referrals within a calendar year from January 1st to December 31st, and if successful they will fly you out to Las Vegas, NV. This offer is open to all members, not just Ambassadors. Have any of you ever been to Las Vegas?
I HAVE AND I WILL AGAIN
First off you do not need to like gambling to want to go and visit Las Vegas. It has many other things to offer like live entertainment, stage shows, hiking, camping, sporting events, and pretty much everything that most major U.S. cities have to offer. I also love it for its weather in January, which is warmer than what I am used to here in New Jersey.
Prior to joining Wealthy Affiliate I had been to Las Vegas a total of 8 or 9 times. Each time I didn't have to pay for anything except personal expenses beyond the $100.00 /day expense money I was given by the video game company I worked for. Everything was paid for, round trip transportation, a rental vehicle, 3 meals per day, and accomodations in a casino hotel.
Those were the good old days of living large in a city that like New York, never sleeps. Rubbing elbows with entertainers, having dinners with athletes, getting to meet with TV personalities, becoming friends with porn stars,... Oops, maybe that should have been a reality that stays in Vegas. LOL They are normal people too, they just have a taboo job.
I remember getting looks by people, mostly men who knew who I was having drinks with at a casino bar or playing a competitive video game at the arcade. Then there were to nasty looks my female co-workers were getting from other women for also hanging out with me and this now semi-famous porn star by the name of Tabitha S------.
BUT I DIGRESS
I highly recommend that those who are either in affiliate marketing or are thinking of starting, to go visit Las Vegas during the first weekend of January and attend the Consume Electronics Show (CES). You will be absolutely amazed at how many niches are all on display for you to interact with and to learn about. No matter what niche you are in, you can benefit from CES.
With technology becoming more integrated in our lives, the products, equipment, services and even automobiles being displayed at the show, is a treasure trove of popular niche markets. Are you in the health and fitness niches? What was on display at CES 2020 would benefit your niche. It truly is amazing how many niche markets are represented at the show.
The same if you are in the renewable energy niche, the OLED TV niche, the security camera niche, the video games niche, the water purification niche, the virtual reality niche, the smart watch niche, the travel niche, the smartphone niche, the sports niche, the drones niche, the transportation niche, the computer niche, the 3D printer niche, and hundreds more!
I did happen to return to Las Vegas to visit friends who live there and for Christmas 2008 (see above) with family. A couple of years ago I went to Las Vegas and blogged about it here at WA. Though I didn't go for free by invitation from WA, I was able to use the money I have earned from affiliate marketing and other income thanks to the WA training and you can too!
GET WA TO HELP YOU TO LAS VEGAS
If you really want to visit Las Vegas you will find a way. You can either work your butt off effectively promoting WA and get those 300 Premium referrals, or work hard to grow your own affiliate marketing business and/or freelance your website building skills you learn here at WA. Then save your money and purchase yourself a plane ticket and hotel accomodations.
If you plan to do the latter my advice is to NOT stay at a casino hotel on the Las Vegas Strip, those tend to be much more expensive because of where they are located. You can easily save $200.00 per night by just getting a room at another casino hotel only a block or two off of the LV Strip or at the extreme south and north ends of it. Location costs more.
I had a little more than $1,200.00 saved up from my affiliate marketing and SEO content writing freelance endeavors. I was going to travel to Las Vegas last week for CES 2020 but decided to wait another year or two because I couldn't make connections with certain friends in Vegas. Maybe in another year or two I will be going to LV by invitation from WA.
Regardless of how I get there I will have WA to thank. Without taking the training learning how affiliate marketing, keyword research & SEO works, I would not have the financial opportunity to go. You too have these same opportunities but you really need to want it and work hard for it. Take a look at what made the top niche products at CES 2020 at the below link.
DID CES 2020 HAVE A NICHE FOR YOU?
Did you notice how many different niche ideas and markets were showcased in the above video? And that was just the tip of the iceberg in the form of the overall niche markets offered up at CES 2020. Not shown were flying taxis operated by artificial intellegence that even Uber plans to start testing this year in select cities and hand-sized AI security drones.
Though CES is not open to the public, if you have a website about technology or in a niche represented at a CES convention, you can use that website to get you a press or consumer pass. Just note that every pass does cost money but it is not that much and is worth it if you are doing research for a possible future niche. And then you have what Las Vegas offers.
If you have never been to Las Vegas most of the mega casino hotels on the Las Vegas Strip all have their own characteristics and theme. I've stayed at the MGM Grand, Luxor, Excalibur, and others. The Bellagio is my favorite when it comes to over all visual eye-candy. It is hard to explain, so watch the video walk-through below. The fountain show at the end is amazing!
