AdTechNYC13 and the HeavyT Recap

Posted by on Nov 13, 2013

So its been a while since I posted on my blog and done a conference post. Last one I posted on was ASW and I did attend ASE in Philly. But Adtech NYC 13 was a pretty good conference for me overall. We headed out Tuesday morning to NYC for Adtech and flew first class on us airways leaving from DEN. We had a layover in Philly before heading over to LGA. After a short stint in the Us Airways Club on the new F terminal at PHL on the layover we headed to LGA and finally landed in NYC. Unfortunately even those we had priority on our bags they missed one and we had to run around the airport for the next 2 hours before finding it and heading to the city to our hotel. After finally getting to our hotel and settling in Jason Von Felt with Dan and the crew from Exclusive CPA hit me up for dinner. It was last minute and after calling around was able to make reservations for the 10 of us at Ruth...

I almost DIED. I was in the hospital, in Australia, for 3 months.

Posted by on Oct 17, 2012

Some of you are friends on Facebook with me and have followed along the past couple months of what happened to me. Some of you might not know and wondered where I been and how come there haven’t been any updates on my blog. Long story short I was in the hospital in Australia for several months where I almost died. It all started on saturday night in early May. I got an email from my dad. My mom and him were on a cruise going around Australia. The email started with, “your mother had a stroke” my heart sank. I frantically searched for the emergency number for the cruise ship and called paying 9 dollars a minute to find out what was going on and what happened. After first calling the wrong ship, I finally go a hold of my dad and booked a flight out to Australia the next morning. The flight was 6am by the time I was done and off the phone with my dad it was 2am. I woke up a couple house later and packed my bags. I headed...

I divorced my current webhost…..

Posted by on Jan 29, 2012

As many of you know I’ve been a strong supporter of liquid web for many many years. As of today I no longer have any services with them. It was a tough breakup but it had come to this. Now don’t get me wrong it was nothing they ultimately did, and I would still recommend them to any of my friends or people looking to get sites hosted, BUT we just outgrew each other. Over the years I’ve used liquid web for everything but my needs continually grew. The support, staff, and attention to detail they had and still have is top notch. My requirements for speed and equipment just outgrew what they were able to provide. You see they couldn’t grow with me affordably. Now I have a couple servers and at one point I had over 15 at liquidweb. Then at another point in my need for expansion or consolidation I moved those servers to cloud and was amazed at their storm on demand system. I helped the staff, owner/ceo with my concerns and gave them feedback on what could be improved with their...

After finally getting to our hotel and settling in Jason Von Felt with Dan and the crew from Exclusive CPA hit me up for dinner. It was last minute and after calling around was able to make reservations for the 10 of us at Ruth Chris. It was already getting dark and we all grouped up and headed to dinner and on the way ran into one of the guys selling comedy tickets in times square. He did a pretty good upsell, I was impressed and I couldn’t complain about the downsell and upsell, so we all decided to get tickets and attend the show. After dinner we headed back to the hotel for a quick rest after dinner before heading over to the comedy show. It was hilarious to say the least, when guys in nyc talk about doing comedy is some back room and working their way up I know what they are talking about now but the majority of the comedians were very good. After the comedy show we parted ways and the group headed over to LeSouk and we headed to grab some street meat. It has been forever since I had Halal from the cart next to the Hilton. Yes I might have lost over 130lbs but I’m still a fat kid at heart and missed good food. After grabbing a combo plate...

ASW13 the HeavyT Recap

ASW13 the HeavyT Recap

Jan 21, 2013

I decided to fly in Saturday morning to the conference and got in around 4pm. Since I’m living in Denver now I had to connect though phx but it was still cheaper then flying direct on frontier or united. When I got there I met up with my buddy Steve. I’ve known Steve for a while and I’m mentoring him. He has the drive and the hunger for this business and is really the only person I’ve considered mentoring. We hopped into the limo and headed over to Caesars to check in. Unfortunately the room wasn’t ready when we got there so since the bronco’s game was on we headed to the diamond lounge for high rollers and checked our bags and ate a little and drank while watching the game. At most Harrah’s properties the diamond lounges are provided to people with diamond or seven star statuses and inside they provide free drinks and an awesome food presentation at certain times throughout the day. I got a call that the room was ready so I headed up and got settled in and finished watching the game. After the game we decided to go get something to eat. Affiliate.com and Redirect.com were having a little get together over at old homestead, which is an awesome steak place in Caesars. On the way over I ran into Vito of cpatank, and who just started a new boutique network called OWN located at http://OneWorldNetwork.com which pays weekly and is so exclusive you can only get in by referral or by a player in the game. After talking to Vito about what he was up to with OWN we headed over to dinner. Scott and the crew always have a good time. The dinner went really well. This was this awesome seafood platter as an appetizer that was huge and had dry ice in it, the pics below don’t do it justice it was really big. Kevin from over at xy7 was also at the dinner sharing in the fun. After dinner I decided to head over to the Louis Vuitton store to pick up some goodies for me and one of my am’s. It’s not uncommon for me to reward my managers with gifts as well as networks returning the favor....

I heard about www.Redirect.com and the technology that was involved behind it. Brian, brian@redirect.com handles my account and manages all the traffic I send on a day to day basis. This dude is a trooper, works past 5pm, i can always get a hold of him by email phone or text, he’s my type of manager i look for in this business. Now I’m sure you want to see the screens, after all I always show proof. The first screen is when I got started and just started throwing traffic at www.Redirect.com and was trying to see what stuck. The second screen shot is after I started to optimize the traffic for the highest roi possible.   Now you might be thinking is www.Redirect.com just for arbing traffic? Actually no its not arbing traffic to this service is just one aspect that www.Redirect.com can do, if you have a network and say an affiliate runs a usa offer but traffic from canada comes through or from a country you don’t have an offer for thats where www.Redirect.com comes in and makes you money. Its also good for people who have huge domain portfolios with traffic such as typo domains or popular domains that once had...

I headed to the airport and got on the plane to PHL and then to LAX. When I landed at LAX I got a call that my cat had died while I was in flight I was upset but I needed to travel on. I landed at noon at LAX and the Quantas counter didn’t open till 3pm so I had to wait 3 hours in the terminal until I could check my bags. After I checked in my flight didn’t leave till 11pm so I had to wait in the chairmans lounge for 8 hours. Longest wait of my life, but the plane flight to Brisbane was 14 hours, more waiting. We got on the plane and then took off. I fell asleep about 3 hours in after watching the last season of mad men. When I woke up the captain was talking on the radio and I looked at my watch and we were 3 hours early wow he made great time. Then I heard the words “There was a medical emergency on the plane and we had to make the decision to turn around...

For those of you who haven’t attended one of Darren’s events….you’re missing out, enough said. “Affiliate Ball New York ASE signs a Beastie Boy, Ice-T & Coco” There is big news and a lot of hype swirling around the Affiliate Ball.

This year’s party is expected to have over 2,500 invited guests of the Affiliate Summit, as it is THE official party on Monday night. Blatt changed venues so that the VIP’s can experience an outdoor, rooftop VIP area which can support over 500 of the industry’s movers and shakers. The VIP area will have a “hipster orchestra” featuring the music of: Nirvana, The Strokes, Black Keys and more. Keeping the New York vibe in tact again this year, the Affiliate Ball has retained MixMaster Mike, the legendary DJ of the Beastie Boys to perform over a 90 minute set.
