Las Vegas 2017 is done. Just returning right now from the flight and I thought I would give people an overall synopsis of what took place in Vegas in 2017 in respect to discussions, how the event went down and also provide you with inside look “pics”(that pic above is an actual pic from the balcony of where the event took place).


First, there were 12 of us in total this year. There were many others that made it, but like every year we have to set a date and sometimes family, health, or other issues can prevent folks from coming. It would have been by far our biggest and most proactive group this year and next year we know that there are going to be MANY of you that are reading this and just starting out that will be sitting at the table.

We have just updated the challenge and if you can get 100 sales from Sept 1st, 2017 until December 31st, 2017, you are going to be sitting in Vegas with us next year. It is 100% possible for YOU to achieve this.

OK, so now for the walk-through of the trip.

Rolling in Style & The New “Bentley” Challenge

The Skylofts have updated their vehicles, for the last 6 years they have picked up their guests in a Rolls Royce, but they have updated their fleet to the Bentley NAME. There are actually only 10 of these in the world and the MGM has ordered 5 of them.

So we got a chance to ride in one of these when myself, Carson and Jay (whom is also from our hometown) arrived in Las Vegas.

By the way, if you achieve over 3,000 sales you can get this treatment too. You will be getting your very own Skyloft and you will be transported to and from the hotel through your own Bentley.

If you can reach 100 sales, you can reach 3,000 and I know lots of folks are gunning for that this year. Will this be you.

The 4 Day Event, How it Went Down

The conference takes place over a 4 day period and we love to mix things up every year. This year was another year of surprises. We always like to keep it fresh every year, but also keep it consistent from one year to the next so the guys and gals that attend also know the format.

The first night we got together for a meet and greet in the loft (our room) which is approximately 6,500 square feet. We hung out for some drinks, hanging out, and of course some great conversations about business, life, and the general excitement that surrounds the Internet.

Followed by this are 3 days of meetings where we hang out in the lofts (fully catered) and discuss where we are headed in the year ahead, how to best help YOU and the community here, and some exciting and industry leading projects we are working on.

Here is a sneak peek of the conference area and this years WA swag.

When you attend Vegas, you get the current year swag which changes every year. This year we did high end water bottles, new mug designs, Bettoni pens, and leather bound Royce padfolios.

We also had $200 set out for each super affiliate for gambling. :)

Night 2: Craft Beer Night, LOTS of fun!

Like the Internet industry, the beer industry has evolved drastically over the past few years and for those of you that are into the craft beer movement will know what we are talking about (like Carson and I are).

We had it set-up in advance to have get some our favourite craft beers and some we haven't tried available in our loft for a craft beer night...with of course our WA brand craft paddles!

Not everyone drinks, so it is completely fine if you don't drink of course but we did get some of the finest crafts available for everyone to test their beer palettes.


From there we made our way to Carrot Top, the 8th rated show in Vegas. The tickle trunk comedian got us all in hysterics, one of the funnier comedians out there in my opinion and it was a great time.

From there we all took over a craps table with our gambling money and a few good rolls later we all ended up at least $200+, doubling our money! Not a bad start.

Night 3: Craft Steak and Old Vegas

The second night we typically do a really nice dinner somewhere. This year we went to Craft Steak, a Vegas renown steakhouse with some of the finest cuts around. It was a wonderful time as it is every year with some engaging conversation and a lot of really great laughs.

From there we took a super stretch limo and went to Old Vegas to spend the rest of the night. A nice way to unwind and hang out.

Night 4: The Farewell (Let's Go Bowling!)

This year we mixed things up for the farewell event, we switched hotels altogether and got a room with a two lane bowling alley in it. It sounds unbelievable, but that is Vegas. Just when you think something can't be done, it can. lol


Here is a group shot of the bowling night which had cash prizes. I think the top group took the title with an average bowling score of 120 or so (for all of you bowlers out there).

All in all, it was an amazing trip and it only seems to get better and better with every year that passes. We are already counting down the days until next years trip and we look forward to having many more of you down there next year. Perhaps we will have some new surprises up our sleeves.

So What Do We Have Planned in 2017?

As with every year, the CORE focus of all of our meetings is the service at Wealthy Affiliate and what we can do to make the platform better in EVERY respect. Every year Wealthy Affiliate remains the most progressive, innovative, and advanced platform in the online business world and we have plans on changing that.

I can tell you that this year our rollouts and the new features that are going to be available to members are nothing short of amazing.

We are focus on:

  1. A much more efficient and integrated website building experience.
  2. Better design and navigation (which includes mobile)
  3. New tools for managing communication with fellow members
  4. Expedited help for all levels of experience, from newbies to expert
  5. A Series of HUGE systems and platform roll outs to further benefit members
  6. Pushing the hosting platform beyond ANY Wordpress hosting experience in the industry
  7. Brand new ways to earn money within Wealthy Affiliate
  8. And much more.

In fact, the synopsis outline for the group conference in Vegas this year was over 36 pages. These are all discussions about changes and improvements that come to WA and as with any other year there could be 100’s of updates that take place within WA each and every month.

Some subtle changes that slowly improve the platform here, some much more significant rollouts. We are going to be changing the game once again in 2017 and doing things that simply are not done anywhere else in the industry.

WA is Doing Big Things…

And we know this is going to continue to be a trend with every year that passes. We are committed to you, to the community, and to the ethics of the entire affiliate/internet marketing world and we will not step our positive and innovative progression within this industry.

WA is converting better than ever...

Retention has never been better...

Overall user satisfaction has never been better!

As time goes on, it only becomes easier and easier to achieve Las Vegas criteria. 100, 300, 1000's of sales are becoming easier and easier with each day that passes.

One thing that we haven't deviated from in the last 12 years at WA is our focus on making our service better. Expect brilliant things from us in the year ahead, with many rollouts and new features here already taking place, but with LOTS to come.

Are You Coming to Vegas in 2018?

100 sales. That is it. Like I mentioned, as time goes on WA is only getting better as a service, as a platform and as a community.

We want you in Vegas next year and I personally know with some effort you can achieve the 100 sales and far beyond, even if you are starting out.

Every single person that was in Vegas this year was at one point a newbie, at one point hadn't made their first referral, and now there are many people operating full time and very successful businesses through the promotion of WA and creating a brand within affiliate marketing/online business world.

Again, here are just some of the things included in the All Inclusive and very Exclusive trip:

  • You will be rubbing shoulders with other Superstar Affiliates.
  • You will learn about our plans for WA in 2018 (brilliant stuff coming)
  • Your ENTIRE trip will be paid for!
  • You will be put up in style with beautiful accomodations
  • Entertainment is in abundance (gambling, shows, dinners, drinks)
  • Delicious food catered throughout the day.
  • Surprises, we keep things interesting ever year!
  • You will be heading home with our latest high end WA swag .
  • You will be in the best shape EVER in terms of your business

This can and will be you if you put forth the effort and please do know that you have an entire community of help to help you out every step of the way. 100 sales. Ready. Set. Go!

To YOUR success and seeing you in Vegas next year!

Kyle & Carson

If I am still here at wealthy affiliate in 7 years, I would love to tag along for all the fun and annual drinks and the free trip. 100 is a lot of people, but I am sure that 100 is not impossible and that I can do it!! If you think you can make it to... I wish you good luck!:)

I'll give it a shot. I'm not to sure I have Enough time. If I have to get 100 new members in just over 2 weeks I think that is challenging to say the least. I'll be happy knowing I Put in the time required to persue this goal.

Attending WA Vegas 2018 would be AWESOME! One thing I do have to take into consideration is my health, as I am battling Leukemia. However, I am fighting it naturally and as I grow and succeed in WA, the better chance I'll have of beating the cancer as WA income will allow me to afford a healthier lifestyle!

I have been here since 2015 and I have never been any way close to going to Las Vegas. 2018 is going to be different. My problems were financial. I couldn't go full-year premium and sometimes my monthly premium payments will fail.I had to use videos and Bing ads and there also all sorts of financial snags. No more. I'm decided to go to Vegas!

What a great read... and who wouldn't want to achieve those results to get there. Looked like fun and definitely something I'd like to do, if not next year, then the following. If I can achieve a bit more than the goals I've set for myself (which weren't driven by a desire to go to the conference), then I'll be very happy indeed :)

As for now I just can't...

I will do everything that I can to be there,
I do invest a lot right now in my websites and online marketing therefore it will be a challenge.
Having said that I do put a lot of effort in my online business so perhaps it will pay properly for me to be able to come this year!

Getting to Vegas would be fantastic and its rewards very welcome. Apart from the business aspect, it's unlikely that I would be able to get to Vegas in this coming year due to personal circumstances. However, I intend to work and develop business within WA. For each and everyone there are daily challenges to meet, some big some small but the most important thing is to keep moving forward with a positive attitude.

That should definitely be the focus of you and what you want to achieve moving forward is creation of an actual business. Boot camp is going to be walking you through that process and the Vegas trip is just the cherry on top!

Hi Kyle

Re Vegas, although it may appear to be a negative attitude and not one to be made openly, there are realities that we all at one time or another have to face up to. When answering the question about the Vegas trip I've endeavoured to reply in an honest way. Should I qualify I would not be able to attend. I mentioned that there were personal reasons. Unfortunately, my Wife has a debilitating illness and needs to be cared for 24/7. This doesn't mean that my interest in building W.A. is any less, I still have time available to work and look forward to creating a substantial income with yourselves, which can and will be done. Should I qualify for Vegas you could always "cut me a cheque" as an alternative "maybe" :) :) :) My "final word on this" is, always be positive, put the work in and go onwards and upwards.

The three months I have spent with WA so far I have focused on building a personal website, I have made one sale! I wanted to focus in on making that successful so did not pay too much attention to this bootcamp option.

Now that I do have a grasp of how to build a website on my own i thought Id start trying to get the ball rolling on this bootcamp and see if it is something I like trying out.

Its late in the year so definitely will not be setting my sights on Vegas but hope everyone who is going to have a lot of fun!

I'm always interested in receiving an all expenses paid trip to anywhere, although I'm not very fond of Las Vegas.

I don't see myself qualifying this year but anything is possible.

To be perfectly honest, I am someone who shouldn't focus too much on incentives like this. I need to focus on the process and not look too far ahead. Focus is something I struggle with.

On the other hand, once I get things going, that's when I will be more interested in an incentive such as this.

The bottom line for me is if I focus too much on incentives, I get off track and try to rush things. It hasn't worked for me.

The Vegas trip looks amazing. I'm wondering if you're still planning to do the event there after the shootings at the country music concert earlier this year. That might be something that might make people discouraged to head to the event. That being said, I would love to be able to attend something so exciting, but getting 100 people by the end of the year is something that I don't feel I can personally accomplish. Maybe for 2019, though!
Reply

Yes, we are still slated to go there this year. We certainly are not discouraged from going to Vegas and they are a resilient bunch down there (knowing several close friends now down in LV).

Aim for this year Neila, if you come up a bit short you will be in excellent shape to make it next year.

We are planning a trip to the US next year and LA is included but coming to the event seems like an impossible dream to me right no, perhaps for 2019 would be possible. 100 sales in 1 month is a big ask when I have none so far. However it wont stop me trying.

This looks like an incredible experience! Can I go back and update my affiliate goals? lol just 25 sales short. That still feels realistic to me! 100 sales by DEC 21st? It's all about setting an intention and expecting a plan to achieve that goal! F-O-C-U-S. I'm going to buy sticky notes and write "Just 100 Wealthy Affiliate sales by DEC 21, 2017 takes me to VEGAS in 2018!

Yes, you can always update your goals and they will of over time. And just because you do not achieve a certain goal, does not mean that it is achievable. Sometimes I set achievable goals and if I come up sure I have still achieves a lot (and then I reset my goals).

I have a feeling that you're going to be sitting with us down in Vegas one day and I really look forward to seeing your progress moving forward. :)

I really want to come but only time and referrals will tell. Maybe it's even easier to have referrals in my country if the Philippines is included in the Free Starter Membership. I have talked to some of my neighbors and they seem to find difficult to go on Free Starter Membership due to technical concerns.

I just hope I can produce referrals, not for Las Vegas if I cannot meet the number but for my own benefit engaging in the online business.

Some countries are not allowed Starter memberships, but this is something that we may have a solution for in the near future.

First I would like to say is that this Las Vegas trip for the 1st person to get 100 sales is fantastic but who ever makes that many sales by then, definitely deserves to go to Vegas. I'm sure it's gonna take more than average marketing knowledge to make that happen. Good luck to all! Let's get after this!

You are more than capable of achieving this Mark, and far beyond. Las Vegas has never been more achievable as the service and the platform here continues to improve with each day that passes (which means that it is easier to sell and converts better than ever).

300 Premium referrals gets me a all expenses paid trip to Vegas. It also means over $50,000 in a year. That very nearly replaces my salary at my current job, which would mean I could start doing this full time, have complete control over my life and time, and give me time to spend with my kids (my inspiration for doing this in the first place). I will definitely be making this goal a priority!

And it also means that you have a fully scalable business, one in which you can scale and grow just by doing more of what you are already doing.

As you move through the bootcamp, you are going to be building exactly this time of sustainable, long term business!

True, my starting here late doesn't mean I cannot get rolling. But like I said, I need to learn all the tricks of the trade here so that I could convince my friends to join here. In less than a month of my joining here as a Premium member, I have learnt a lot and have been steadily climbing up the ranks. However, there's so much to learn and when I said it would be difficult to push for that 100 figure, it was more because of the "target" period of Sep - Dec '17 and I'm still very much a novice. Perhaps, when I have some kinda experience, I could try. The upside to this is, it gives me another reason to extend my Premium membership after this one expires :) Cheers!!

If you can reach 10, you can reach 1000. There are many folks well over the thousand mark and heading towards the 3000 (the Rolls Royce challenge).

In the scheme of things this is a very small number of people in the world that you need to capture the interest and ultimately help out. There are 3.75 BILLION people online that can benefit from the platform and services here at WA!

As you move through the Affiliate Bootcamp, you are going to be given all the strategies and techniques that you need to create a full-time business through the promotion of WA and other products and services in this industry.

I would love to be in Vegas for this event in 2018, however, at this stage of my training and development of my business, I'm not planning on it. Not sure if I saw what the dates are for the event next year. Anyway, since I'm planning on having success in my online marketing, I will plan to be in Vegas for the 2019 event.

That is perfectly fine, you can set up your business nicely this year and get the foundation rolling, and then moving through 2018 you can really start to scale your business!

You have lots of healthcare from the community every step of the way Robert!

this is just the thing i need to prove to others that this is real and if it could happen for me then it could happen for them and they will jump on board. but i need to somehow get 100 to buy into it so i can be there taking pictures with Kyle & Carson, first. if i can get 100 without the pictures and videos of me in Vegas then how many will i get with them. Challenge Accepted!!!

hey Kyle, what other way can i earn my way or win that trip to Vegas? reach out a little further, i can't grab hold of your hand yet. i really want the experience because i love traveling so much and taking pictures and videos. i want to be in a comedy movie. and when i come back with all the proof that this is really real then i will have no hesitation going out there and spreading the word like it's the gospel truth!!!

Hi Guys, I joined the club in september, kind of late for this convention. I went to few conventions in Vegas. A result of measurable time specific goals that were achieved. I think two months given that my site is not up may be too optimistic, but I believe in miracles too. See you next one. Although, I live three and half hours from Vegas, I might crash the party.

Yea ha,
What fun vegas would be especially if Kyle & Carson are going to pay for it.............that's unprecedented. Always improving is a great attitude. An old saying: I'm not a Saint but I'm working towards perfection. It's simply not settling when you know you can improve on yourself today and Vegas is the reward for the effort.......today.....what other rewards we don't even know about yet that are coming when we reach these independent levels.....let I said yea ha. Thank you Kyle and Carson for keeping the light lit.

Having spent one month with your trainings, of course I would love to meet Kyle and Carson. But this is now such an unknown countryside, I am going to explore how French people react on the WA opportunity, and if a surprise pops-up, I will be the first pleased !
Above all, I want to say thank you for your vision and creation.

God gave you a marvelous brain!! I tried WA a year ago and quit after lesson 4 on level 1. In January I started a yard care business and it has been very successful. However, it is very hard physical labor. Also I do not get paid very much. I now have 1 to 2 workers helping me. It is very hard keeping track of all their hours in the different jobs that need to be done. I came back to wealthy affiliate and looking at the program and decided that there was no way that I couldn't do it. So I have started with a vengeance and now have almost completed the very first level on getting started. I have already built my first website and have typed many articles already. It has been really easy and I have done the entire thing from my phone. I have not yet touched my computer. If I can do it you can do it. So hang in there and be persistent and work every single day spending several hours completing the lessons. Build your first website and then in the affiliate Boot Camp. I hope to see you in Las Vegas next year. You can email me at yourchronicpainsolution@gmail.com. My website is yourchronicpainsolution.siterubix.com. God bless you, Tom Purtzer

This is impressive. I am not likely to make it unless I can get my wife to agree for me to take the time to drive out. It's a four day drive for me, and I don't fly. Not making excuses...that's just my life. But I love my life, and so far I am finding WA a great enrichment to my efforts. But who really knows?

Just an update here folks, we are renewing the Las Vegas Incentive challenge.

If you can make 100 Premium referrals from September 1st, 2017 - December 31st, 2017, you will be getting an invite to Vegas for the all expense paid conference early next year!

Absolutely everyone can achieve this, and I truly hope to see many of you achieving this, this year. Time to take action today, get out there and create lots of content, and ask for lots of health as you move forward through the rest of the year. Action leads to success!

I'm going to be honest. I'm not all that motivated to go to the Las Vegas SAC. I'm twice the age of the average age of folks who attended the 2017 SAC above.

What's an old fart like me going to do with these young guys and gals in LV. I don't gamble and a glass of wine or two with dinner is the extent of my drinking habit.

But I so-o-o enjoy reading about the activities at the annual SAC. I've been to LV many times, and I'm not in to the 24 hour glitz.

I love this WA training platform, the community, and I think Kyle & Carson are the greatest young entrepreneurs I have ever had the pleasure to meet.

It definitely is not a gambling trip nor is it a booze trip. It is a trip about online business and a trip about our plans and focuses in your head to help you become more and more successful and to make the platform here at wealthy feel it best that can be.

Hi, and yes I'm definitely shooting for the Vegas trip (as long as my wife can come lol), but yeah. I'm from southern California originally been to Vegas a few times it's a place I'd like her to see at least once lol. But not sure if I'll meet the 300 sales requirements. Since all my work and progress is done from my mobile phone till my sales buy me that lab top lol.
Really do appreciate the tools and knowledge in wealthy affiliates, have been looking and hoping there was help out there, and now I've found it, I'm gonna put it to use.

1) still be with this amazing affiliate community

Well...it is ideal I get to Vegas in 2018, however, being so new here and having no idea about affiliates and having tried so many other website ideas (I enjoy the learning!), I know it takes lots of time to get started and learn. With only 5 months left of 2017, and working/studying full-time, my chances don't look promising. Perhaps Vegas in 2019 is more achievable!

We were all "new" and "just starting out" at one point. You are going to be just fine Melissa and there is no better time to get started than now.

Also, do know that we "renew" the challenge every September to make it 100 sales in the last 4 months of the year and you can make Vegas! :)

Hi if any of your successful affiliates don't drink, gamble or smoke
out of choice or cultural reasons. What alternative can you offer? because I learnt that on a business or personal level, it is good accommodate diversity. At Toastmaster's this is what we learn. I love traveling but due to the above reason it would be difficult for me. I think cash incentive would be best. Anyway its great you guys take care and I hope as a team we are successful. I believe in Win Win Situation. Kyle and Carson thanks for your encouragement and being patient with me so far. By the way your kids are really cute.

Incredible. Let's break it down.
I just joined. I have 6 months from now till the end of 2017. This means, every month I have to get 50 refferal. Every week should be 10-12 reff. Every day should be 1-2 reff. It still makes sense right?

Next...

I have to check my "to do List".

1. "The Green Button", is the course material already practiced?
2. What is my preferred niche?
3. My website design, is it as recommended?
4. Is the web content occupied?
5. Traffic problems?
6. Optimize the WA community for my success. Learn from the leaders and members of the WA community.

Wish me luck!
