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

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!

Bile means that is a good approach. We always recommend heading in a niche that you are passionate about. Down the road you can definitely consider another niche and you can consider the promotion of Wealthy Affiliate through a Bootcamp related site.

I would also love to go to Vegas, never been in the states before so that alone would be a win for me, but to hit 300 sales before the end of the year i would need to have a miracle happening :)

first learn the system and go on from there, and see if i can get as many sales.

I have started on another site already which I have managed to get to page 2 so far so will need to create more content for that. I hope I don't spread myself too thin here but there is an element of urgency for me, so as I say, I'll put my best foot forward and get the show on the road!

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.

That is what you should get excited about and hanging around with fellow entrepreneurs for for five days!

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.

I learn quicker with my hands then with reading info, so im struggling with trying to not only learn all of these wonderful steps and protocols yall have laid out before me but also actually RETAINING the knowledge. lol

1) still be with this amazing affiliate community
2) have the resources and networking ability to complete the tasks required to achieve in order to attend.

I am forever grateful for happening to stumble up this great program, and I hope to see you, my peers and mentors, by 2019.

It won't happen overnight, but it can and will happen. Ultimately the goal of your website at the end of the day is to HELP people, not sell them on anything. If you can do this, then you are going to have a long term and very much sustainable business on your hands. :)

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! :)

I really do look forward to working with you and seeing your progress moving forward.

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!

Would the accommodation and catering included in this, be able to also cover my husband joining me if I were able to qualify for it? I have a fairly limiting disability and thus would not be able to attend alone. I do have documented proof of my disability as I am registered blind.

Yes, that is covered and of course you can bring your husband. That won't be an issue at all. :)

Since it is already July 2017, I can't commit to being Vegas in 2018. It would be exciting for me to get to fly out west and see the city of Vegas for the first time in my life, but I am not "signing any contract as of now." BUT the impossible happens every day!

Hi John,
I know it seems scary but I don't believe there is a "contract" to worry about. The information which I have been fervently studying appears straight forward. The support I have been receiving has been amazing! I encroach you to take a leap of faith. Know that I too am scared as I am out of work and need to make this succeed. I hope you give it a try and we can win in this journey together!

My first thought was, "UGH!!! It's already July!!!" But, why not push myself! I've been to Vegas a few times already, but to go and hang with some of the members of the Wealthy Affiliate community would be incredible! Plus, we really need to have some more ladies represented!

Just to shake Kyle and Carson's hand would be well worth it; a victory like that would be tremendous!!!

You noticed that, too, did you? Three women! What's up with that!

I would definitely like to meet other members of Wealthy Affiliate. It would also be super-nice to meet the two young men responsible for this entire enterprise.

Haven't seen Las Vegas since I was 18 and headed back home from California to upstate New York on a Greyhound bus! We had a 5 hour layover there and I couldn't even enter the casinos!

Do I plan to be there? I don't think so. But, they say that miracles never cease....

It is running towards the end of the year now but one can make it if there is a mechanism or vehicle to do it. And WA is the vehicle.

If I qualify to go to Vegas and I do not want to go for some reasons, can I exchange for money instead of the trip?

We don't do a money exchange, but if you make it, you will have a full time business on your hands and you will be able to make it subsequent years. :)

We spend our time between Portugal and Hong Kong. Do you fly international affiliates to LV? Work for it and eventually this will work. At least you don't have to carry any inventory. (WINK). I think the yearly fee is spot on and it's clear that you are entertaining more values than simply price. It seems to me WA is sincerely doing good. Doing good is way better than simply making an effort to do no harm. I hope I make some good friends and collaborators in this community. Retirement could be fun.
Reply

Oh yeah, regardless of where you are located in the world we will make sure that you are there! :)

Our focus has and always will be on the service and the value we offer. We have not changed our price in the 12 years we have been in business so I think that our focus on the platform and on members is more than apparent.

Retirement can and should be fun and operating a flexible online business is definitely ideal!

I don't expect to get 300 referrals by the end of the year, but I'd be pleasantly suprised if I do. I prefer to start small with my goals to not set myself up for dissapointment (and I still have ambitions!).

I got some clever marketing ideas though, so lets hope.

PS: Will the new layout of WA support widescreen resolutions? The empty sides are bothering me. I'd love the middle to have more space for text and such, as I find it easier to read that way. I only find this layout good for laptops.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Expect it. Work for it. It can an d will happen.

If you do come up short though you are going to be in prime time position to make it subsequent years.

ALL websites have empty sides if you look, we follow internet standards with our development here. No advanced technology site would program for full widescreen.

I've had pretty ambitious expectations in the past and got upset for not reaching them, so I'm playing it safe for now. My mind during the start of the year was rough (and has been like that for years)...I've been climbing out of a negative mindset this summer. It takes steps.

As for web design, alright. I can look foward to a more mobile-friendly version, though. Of course this site will always be the best for PCs, but it would be nice to check in on what people are saying without the need to zoom in constantly.

Hello, Kyle: I have been with WA since 12/16. I actually hate to admit this but I completely missed that Affiliate Bootcamp was devoted to affiliate marketing of WA. I just started the bootcamp today. In 6 months, I did set up a decent website, How To Make Money INternet Marketing and bring in 4 people, who have not yet signed up.
But think what I can do with Affiliate Bootcamp training? My goal is 2 signups per day for the rest of 2017, or 320 people. It would be a dream to go to Las Vegas.
Cordially, David

My conscious mind is questioning...is it possible to make 300 by Dec-31??

Thinking Numbers:
Time to work on training : until June 30 (really roller coster).
July - Nov: 154 days
Dec: buffer of 31 days to make up any shortfalls
No. of referals required = 300 referals / 154 days = 1.94 per day

1) How many sales would I need per day? 2
2) How many unique visitors to my site-may be 2000 or 5000 (out of 1 billion people)...need to work out
3) Conversion rate don't know need to work out

Instead of thinking is it possible, I am pushing myself to think, "Why NOT, How do I get there"...I guess mind will figure out during the journey...off course its going to be a roller coaster!!!

Love your goals and there is no reason to think this is not possible. It has never been MORE possible to achieve this and as WA continues to evolve and improve, it is only going get even easier to promote.

In fact, you no longer have to sell it, recommend people to WA, let them know what they are doing and let it sell itself.

Vegas is a very nice bonus incentive indeed! The four days of the 2017 edition looks to be amazing. I have been doing this all wrong, trying to push my own niche instead of pushing this niche, which is already well established and renowned the world over.

Don't get me wrong, I have learned a ton of stuff about how to build a successful website in the certification courses, so nothing I have done so far is lost. :)

However, there are millions and millions of people out there looking to make money online, so 300 of them is only a drop in the ocean. Let's do this!!!

It sounds great and highly beneficial for our training. There are 7 months left on 2017 for me to achieve the figures: challenging times ahead, but perhaps achievable.
I wonder how many people from the WA community have achieved the 300 figure required for this year's trip, as per Kyle's comments above, some of them were not able to travel in the end.
12 people at the conference sounds to me as a pretty low amount, if compared with the proposed goals read. I wonder what the realistic goals would be and I am determined to soon start finding this out!
Let's start rolling guys!

There have been several folks that have already achieved the 300, many more established affiliates (that started off in your situation) accomplish this within the first few months of the year.

We also run another challenge starting in September, so if you are a late started in the year it is definitely more than viable that you can achieve Vegas. :)
