Las Vegas 2017 was a hit and we are just ramping up to our Las Vegas Conference in 2018

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 in 2017. 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.

If you can make 300 unique Premium referrals between Jan 1st, 2018 and December 31st, 2018 you are going to be sitting in Vegas with us next year. It is 100% possible for YOU to achieve this and you have more than enough time 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 Mulsanne. 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 300 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 2018?

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 Next Year?

300 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 300 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 2019 (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. 300 sales. Ready. Set. Go!

To YOUR success and seeing you in Vegas next year!

Kyle & Carson

Before I upgraded to premium I had a good look around . I'm wanting to be at the top of rankings WA and looking forward to it. I've been doing the training in the green box Getting Started and Affiliate boot camp. I'm now a bit confused. My fault .
Could you answer a few questions.
1 can I train to do my own website.( which I have )
2 I've been looking and reading a lot of contents regarding Getting started , Affiliate boot camp. Jaxxy , Rubix and live chat.

Would love to hit the goal but Vegas is not my cup of tea. I am a wilderness jungle backpacking gal, the Bentley has no appeal either.. I learned to dive in one many years ago but left that opulent life behind However if I do make the cut and the dates work with my schedule it would be great to meet some of the other Affiliates

I want to meet You, Kyle, Carson, Nathaniell, Eddy Salomon etc. I know it depends only on me, but since I am in the SA program I really think I can make it work out for me. My goal is to get 300+ WA referrals until August 2018. I already have some awesome plans (beside the SA program) for achieving that...

Set your goals high, and you will achieve much higher results. IF you set it at 100 premium joins per month, and you come up short you may have 30-40.

You are capable far beyond 300 premium referrals in a year, so it is absolutely OK to shoot for the stars and if you come up short, you are still going to be sitting on the moon!

Sounds to good. A lifestyle I have been missing out on for years since I left Hawaii (22 years my paradise). Never less it helps me raise my bar and behold I got a light-bulb showing up. My greatest struggle is in finding a niche I can be happy with. Since I live now in Germany (I am German) it could be beneficial to focus more on this local market and help expand WA's popularity.
Additional research conclusive, perhaps you could help me with some stats throughout the course. Thanks

I focused on the "Progress" course last year and didn't attempt the Affiliate Bootcamp at all. Having now gone through the introduction, the Bootcamp training seems to be simpler and may even start providing returns more quickly. I believe I can hit the 300 referral mark by the end of this year.

Sounds like a perfect round-up of a great rocking year. If I make it next year, I'll surely come fully loaded with ideas to make the WA platform even better than what it already is. Vegas sounds fun, but personally, I'd prefer spending time with all of you guys in a countryside farmhouse. And discuss things over a campfire. Beer or whiskey, anything goes :)

This year I'm focusing on improving my online business funnel so that referring affiliates who upgrade to Premium becomes a regular activity.

As stated elsewhere, my goal for 2018 is simply to refer one long-term Premium member per month (or 12 in the whole year, as long as the "average" is one-Premium-member-per-month).

One that step has been achieved, I can then run the process at a more intense level, scaling up to a rate of one Premium referral per day, and therefore "Las Vegas in 2019".
Reply
Kyle Premium
Set your goals higher, and you will achieve much higher goals. IF you set it at 100 premium joins per month, and you come up short you may have 30-40. If you set at one per month and you come up short, you will have less than one.

You are capable far beyond 300 premium referrals in a year, so it is absolutely OK to shoot for the stars.

Ok. I am just doing what the lesson suggests. Just being honest. I have way too many other goals on my list right now to add yet another. My goal is set. Get my first 100 Wealthy Affiliate referrals this year. I'm not really feeling Vegas so much right now. I went there years ago and it was way too much smoking which almost made me sick and I am not into gambling. I have ended up with serious bronchitis twice in my life behind being around cigarette smoke. I also have mild asthma. If it were not for Vegas still allowing public building smoking it would be ok. I would LOVE to go there and be able to go to the various shows and enjoy the hotels in peace but I cannot. That is my take. My goals right now when it comes to Wealthy Affiliate Bootcamp center around seeing whether I have what it takes to make money with a blog that I create from scratch to promote Wealthy Affiliate. At the same time, I will be applying new skills to my office blog that currently brings in a ton of clients into our office - so it can also start earning me passive income. Once I get there then I just might revise my goal. I suppose - right now - I feel just like I did when I first started massage therapy school in 2009. I recall now sitting in class one day and thinking - Gee, I could spend $8000 on this school and then find out I suck at it! Of course, now our office has some of the best reviews in our area for our massages but that is where I am at with this. Just have a LOT on my plate like serious weight loss (lost 60 and have another 100 lbs to go), taking my practice to a whole new level, etc. etc. so as I grow, my goals with get revised. Right now, I want to sit at the feet of Kyle and Carson and other teachers on here and learn and DO and learn and DO.

This is going to be my main focus to start with in Wealthy affiliate. The goal of making 300 referrals comes out to roughly 1 a day. that seems like a pretty realistic goal. However I am going to put the pressure on right up front and go for 100 referrals by the end of March. 100 in 60 days to jump start my goals and also put me into a bit of money that I can count on as I build other sites. Vegas Here I come.

I am no gambler nor may not enjoy sporting events, nor a drinker, but this is something I have never gotten anywhere near due to personal issues on a grand scale. I have successfully worked out most of this baggage from my life, with just remnants left now.

I am ready to systematically put my time and effort into the system and training here to put myself where I need to be in life as a productive citizen in the United States.

The Convention is awesome, but far better is what happens to one's income if they are able to pull the 300 qualifying referrals needed to make the trip. After sitting out for three years and a fourth without Internet access before this three-year period, I have removed the weights and can now go full speed ahead.

I'm back here again with no reason why I can't make this work as intended.

You don't need to be a gambler or a drinker (many folks that attend are not), you need to be motivated by business, helping others, and gaining insight into the year ahead here at WA!

I want to see you make this in the year ahead Daniel, we would love to have you there!

With your help, I will. I am ready for the challenge and I will show you, that in the necessary things that had to be done in elimination and complete change of environment in order to increase my performance, I can put my writing to work like I never have.

I think so too. I put a lot of time into making ready.

I hope to see every single one of us there. Once I hit three hundred, if anyone is struggling, I will do my best to guide and help anyway I can. A team is only as strong as their weakest link. key word TEAM. There should be no weak link. We should strive to help each other as much as possible!

That is kind approach to business and there'll be many different ways that you can pay it forward once you start achieving success (that is what the community is about here). Not to mention that you will be in a great position to scale your own business. ;)

I'm really looking forward to a steep learning curve and new experience using a computer for very different purposes than I did during my previous employment. The focus of learning, earning and giving/receiving helpful information on a friendly, social basis should be much more enjoyable than problem solving, model building in a pressure cooker type deadline environment.

There is definitely going to be a learning curve as there is with learning anything new, but you are to get the hang of things very quickly and you are going to be proficient with the process of building a website and your business online before you know it.

I look forward to working with you!

I applied to the super affiliate project. I start from scratch here. I will do anything it takes to go to Las Vegas.
I work here for 8 months already, had my first sells and organic traffic but now I want to start a new website and concentrate all I have already learned and all I will learn in future into this project.

Great to hear Stefan, sounds like a good approach as well. Start with your website in a "state" that you are happy with and a brand that you are excited about right from the starting point.

You can accomplish a lot through the course of a year, and you certainly can achieve Vegas in a years time!

I lived in Vegas for two years while stationed at Nellis Air Force Base in the 1970s, and loved every minute of it. However, my wife has never been to Vegas, and it would be just awesome if I could visit Vegas again along with her. So, what better way to do so; have Kyle and Carson pay for it! Vegas ...here I come!

Onward and upward!

No better way to go to Vegas than on someone elses dime, in particular when you get to meet up with some of the top affiliate marketers in the world (and you will be one).

Looking forward to meeting you one day Joshua and this will certainly be your most special trip to Vegas yet!

I can't believe I let this slip through my fingers!!! UGH!!!

Kyle has been the one who has left me a few comments on my posts and responded to my PM's so I can't believe that I'll miss out on meeting him in January!

But I'm not leaving Carson out, either; I remember he responded to one of my questions with the quickness and had the issue fixed by the next day!

Oh, good grief...I'm actually getting emotional typing this! Perhaps I need to read this post every day, as a reminder that this will be the last year that I don't qualify to be in Vegas! I want to be there as a way of showing my appreciation for being a part of this incredible platform; to show others that this is the real deal, and for myself, as a reminder that my dreams don't have to stay dreams...they can become a reality!!!

Set goals, daily, weekly, monthly and yearly. For the longer term, set loft goals, for the daily and weekly set things that are attainable, but really lead you to being productive!

Here in your corner and willing to help you through the entire year of 2018 to make this a reality. You can and you WILL achieve this.

I appreciate your reply, Kyle. I've set yearly, monthly, weekly and even daily goal, but there have been too many times when I made taking action an option as opposed to it being mandatory.

Thanks for always being in my corner!

Wow. Sounds awesome. But I just joined in late December. I know I could make the 100 goal if I had three months, but a week and a half. I'm not selling myself short or underestimating myself, but just being realistic, I'm not going to hit that goal. Crying already. Laughs.

While it would be nice to reach this milestone, I worked in Las Vegas casinos for 25 years. The last hotel-casino I worked was Mandalay Bay. I can honestly say that I would prefer to have 100 referrals than to go to Las Vegas. This does not take away this great incentive by Kyle and Carson. I always worked the strip, and when I left one property to work at another, I closed the door behind me and embraced my new surroundings. Besides, I had back surgery in June, 2015. It left my back very weak, and my right leg numb. So I can't walk any great distances. This is not an excuse not to reach my goal. In fact, I want to double my goal for 2018 to 200. I might make a post out of this and go a little deeper into why I feel the way I do.
Good Luck to those of you who go this year.

Okay, so I lied before. I was going to start boot camp back in January of this year and unfortunately things got in the way and I’m just now getting started again. I know that I’ll be seeing all of you in 2019 however.

I’m going to screenshot this comment and post it on my blog here at Wealthy Affiliate for motivation as I move forward in 2018 to hit the Vegas goal. When I finally pull it off, I’m going to post it for a second time so that everyone else here can see that it is fully possible to make your dreams a reality.

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!:)

100 is very few actually, in the scope of the Internet. I know 100 people alone who could benefit from this, but the actual audience is the 3.75 BILLION people online that could benefit from WA.

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.

How's that for a, well, almost a Goal? lol

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! Hope to see you all in Vegas 2018

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 :)

Well, that certainly provides a lot of motivation to make the required sales to be included in the Las Vegas trip! Best part, it sounds like a heck of a lot of fun.

I will work very hard to be one of your leaders promoting WA..

I wish I could say today - Yes I will be there.
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!

Cya soon!

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!

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.
