Vegas 2018. It Was Big. Vegas 2019 Will Be BIGGER.
We have just returned from the Las Vegas Super Affiliate Conference. I would be understating it if I said it was a great time, it was nothing short of brilliant and it was amazing to be surrounded by such an awesome group of people. There's something to be said when you're hanging out with 15 fellow (our largest group yet), like-minded individuals what's it coming goal of helping people create success within the online world.
Vegas also gives us the opportunity to hash out ideas and current projects that we are either working on, or we'll be working on by some smartest minds in the business. Sometimes our ideas are great, sometimes our ideas aren't quite there yet and need some refinement (after we get feedback). That is business and that is what we love about it.
In addition to that, lots of great conversations and feedback took place (as they do every year) And ultimately as a result of that super conference, you can expect some brilliant things out of us in the year ahead. Even more so than we had already planned or anticipated.
**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.
So let's take a look at the entire trip and what you have to look forward to if you achieve the 300 sales and make it to Vegas next year.
The 4-Day Event, How it Went Down.
Our plane arrived in Vegas late afternoon and after getting settled in our Skyloft (Penthouse at the MGM Grand) we got together for a meet and greet. There were lots of old friends there from past years, and as usual some new faces in the crowd. Being members of the community, the new Super Affiliates fit right into the conversations immediately.
When you have a group of people that build their businesses helping others, there something that you said about the type of person and it is more than self-evident that EVERYONE that attends Vegas every year are caring, wonderful, as well as being very successful affiliate marketers.
It was a great time and we had some casual drinks and food to kick things off before the conference commenced the next morning.
The Conference, A Round Table of Super Affiliates
Usually when you hear the word conference, you picture a stuffy room with figureheads speaking on stage. We are operate things a little differently. We definitely do not feel as though we are above anyone, and that is not an appropriate approach to having conversation about business or explaining our ideas.
No different from communicating with folks here within the community, we are always open to new ideas and when take the conversational "round table" approach to our conference.
Throughout the 3 days of round table discussions, we cover a great deal of material about what we've accomplished in the past year, but the core focus being projects and plans that we have in the year ahead.
A fixture of every conversation is how we can deliver a better product and service, and improve upon the already great help folks are offered here. Our goal is to get people help in seconds, not minutes.
I have included a photo where you can see the set-up of the table before we got rolling with the breakdown of the itinerary, discussions points, some cool swag, and $200 cash that we usually gamble with (although people do whatever they like with it). Some of us usually like to play craps, blackjack, poker or other games. Up to them though.
Upon concluding the daily "group" meetings, we spend some time with folks in a more private setting through the private meetings.
Private Meetings. Hang Out With Us 1-on-1!
Every year we also have private meetings with all the guests. Although very time-consuming for Carson and I, it is well worth it and something that we thoroughly enjoy doing. Not only does it give us the opportunity to share some knowledge we have accrued over the past 16 years online, it is an opportunity to for us to work in a more "specific" manner with people and offer feedback and potential opportunities based on what they are doing, and where their particular businesses and brands are headed online.
As usual, it is also an opportunity for folks to share anything they have on their minds in terms of ways we can improve the platform and environment here to better equip them to promote WA, with a focus of course being our overall service. It is an incredibly useful exercise!
The Nightly Events. Always an Experience!
Every night we get together as a group for different events. We change these up every year, whether it is a nice dinner at one of the top restaurants in Vegas, a show, an activity, or a get together in a brand new environment, we have a unique itinerary every year to keep everyone on their toes! LOL
This year was no different and we had a really fun 3 nights of events together. I will give you a quick breakdown here.
Night 2: Limo to Prime Steak @ Bellagio
The first night after our conference was complete, we caught a Limo from the MGM Grand over to the Bellagio. This is the hotel that has become famous for their fountains, but they always have one of the highest regarded steak houses in all of Vegas.
We had two large tables (there were 20 of us in total with the guests that came), and we at family style meaning that the table shared all the appetizers and the sides, and you ordered your main. Here is a shot, sorry about the bad photo the waiter tried many times and this is the best he could do. ;)
It is nice ordering this way as you can have a taste of many different things on the menu, with over 10 sides and 10 appetizers to choose from you get to really see what a restaurant has to offer.
I think it is safe to say this was probably some best food I have ever had in my life. Even the bread they served us was out of this world!
Night 3: Top Golf, Drinks & Food
Not everyone plays golf, not everyone likes golf. Top Golf is an experience all in its own and something everyone can enjoy. If you saw some swings out there, yet how much fun folks were having, you would have realized that this is the new age way of going to the driving range.
Here is a photo I took while we were at top golf.
With the golf, you have music, TV screens everywhere (one over 400 inches in size), your own waitress/waiters, a culinary experience, a wide array of drinks and an evening to remember. This was an awesome time and we all had a blast. It was a great way to spend our 3rd night in Las Vegas and if you ever get a chance to visit a Top Golf, I highly recommend it.
Night 3: The Farewell in Style, It Was Magic!
Every year we do a "surprise" for our farewell to make it fun, exciting and highly anticipated. This year we decided to get a 9,500 square foot Villa with a pool/spa, BBQ area, and large outdoor area and for our farewell. We like to mix it up every year, last year we had a room with a bowling alley in it!
This year we stepped it up from that. We had a fully catered BBQ (Southwest style) along with cornhole games set up for everyone to play...branded with Wealthy Affiliate of course.
The Villa was actually just recently used a few weeks that for Michael Jordan's 50th Birthday celebration. Being a huge basketball fan, I was hoping that he had accidentally left a few signature "Jordan shoes" in closet, but no luck. LOL
For those that are toilet aficionados, you will get a kick out of this and all the settings that all the toilets had within the hotel.
While all of this was going on, we had an amazing magician walking around performing magic. He pulled of some mind blowing sleight of hand card tricks, and then moved to some bigger tricks using novels, props, and he even hacked my phone in front of everyone. It was my first up close experience with a magician/mentalist and I was in awe with his craft.
All in all it was a brilliant way to wrap up the trip, and it summed up another really motivational, fun filled Super Affiliate Conference down in Vegas.
This leads me to...
Are You Coming to Vegas Next Year? 300 Sales & You are IN!
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. Some folks there this year started within the online world "mid-year" last year, with no prior experience!
Again, here are just some things included in the All INLCLUSIVE 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!
- We will be giving you "extra" $$$ to use however you like
- You will be put up in style with beautiful accomodations
- Entertainment is in abundance (gambling, shows, dinners, etc)
- 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!
And before I leave you, one more thing.
3,000 Sales = Vegas AMPLIFIED!
If you can achieve 3,000 sales in a calendar year, you are going to get the royal Vegas treatment. It starts with a Bentley picking you up on arrival, one of only a few Bentley Mulsanne. There are actually only 10 of these in the world and the MGM has ordered 5 of them.
You will be getting your very own Skyloft and you will be transported to and from the hotel through your own Bentley. The Skyloft includes full butler service, and you can sit in the comfort of a 3,000 square foot room!
If you can reach 300 sales, you can reach 3,000 and I know lots of folks are gunning for Bentley Challenge this year (and several will most likely make it). This can be you and if you put forth the effort and once you get your bearings on how to build and scale your business, the sky is truly the limit. We are dealing with an audience of 4 BILLION people that can benefit from the service here at WA...3,000 sales is a grain of sand in comparison to the size of the market.
Here is to YOUR success in the year ahead (and seeing you in Vegas)! Let's make it happen!
