    First Annual “Super-Affiliate Auction” for Charity
    Eight of Affiliate Marketing’s most eligible super-affiliates will be up for grabs during Affiliate Summit’s First Annual Super-Affiliate Auction to benefit the Starlight Starbright Children’s Foundation.

    Along with various sponsorships and activities to generate donations from the affiliate marketing community, Affiliate Summit will be hosting a “Super Affiliate Auction”. Merchants, Affiliate Networks, CPA Networks, Technology Providers and more will bid for the extraordinary opportunity to meet and dine with one or more elite, hand-picked super-affiliates to discuss affiliate marketing, during Affiliate Summit 2007 West.

    The following super-affiliates are scheduled to participate in this exciting event:

    • Mike Allen, President and “Chief Executive Shopper” of Shopping-Bargains.com, LLC
    • Michael Coley, Founder of Amazing-Bargains.com
    • Patrick Grady, Chief Revenue Engineer of RhinoFish Media
    • Scott Jangro, President of MechMedia, Inc.
    • Billy Kay, President of The Mail Order Shoppe
    • David Lewis, CEO & Founder of 77Blue (Cashbaq)
    • Tim Storm, Founder and CEO of FatWallet.com
    • Adam Viener, Chairman and Founder of Imwave, Inc.

    Bidding will take place January 28 – February 1, 2007 on eBay. Auction winners and the affiliates will pre-arrange a convenient time for their lunch or dinner during the Conference, to be selected and paid for by the auction winners.

    100% of the funds received during this auction will go directly to the Starlight Starbright Children’s Foundation, which has dedicated nearly 25 years to helping seriously ill children and their families cope with the pain, fear and isolation through entertainment, education and family activities. Starlight Starbright’s programs have been proven to distract children from their pain, help them better understand and manage their illnesses and connect families facing similar challenges, so that no one feels alone. More information about this incredible organization can be found at http://www.starlight.org.

    More information about these super-affiliates and details about the Super Affiliate Auction can be found at http://auction.affiliatesummit.com



    A heartfelt thanks goes out to the affiliates that have made this all possible! Y'all rock!

    Do you think they would allow either a dining opportunity for AS East or a phone consultation instead? I am not going to AS West.

    I think the affiliates would probably all be pretty flexible on the timing and details of the lunch or dinner. It's probably best to check with the affiliate before bidding just to be sure.

    Missy used the wrong picture for me! Here's the one she was supposed to use:



    Seriously, though, it's a great opportunity all the way around. I get to support a fantastic charity. I get to spend some truly quality one-on-one time with a merchant. And I get a free meal.

    LOL @ that picture Michael!

    Whoever wins the auctions is the "lucky" one - you guys would all make great dinner/lunch companions. One on one time spent with each of you will be worth way more than the price of a donation and meal.

    Oh Rexanne -- you know me better than that. We all know that it's the women that rule Affiliate Marketing!

    Unfortunately, the ladies that were asked to participate, declined this time around, for one reason or another.

    There were limited invitations sent for this first Auction as we didn't what percentage of the affiliates that were asked to participate, actually would.

    Hopefully next year, some more ladies will say yes.

    With weirdos out there like Billy, I was too afraid to participate. Who knows what kind of freak, (and I have seen and met many of you) would have won my auction and next thing you know Connie is missing. "Gee, I took her out to eat in the desert, she must have gotten lost..."

    For the record... I've taken many people "out to the desert"... and all have returned safely

    Although, I haven't seen a post from Joe Lilly in a while????

    or....

    I took Loxly to Laughlin for Thanksgiving... DEFINATELY out in the desert... and haven't seen her since!!

    I've just finished uploading all of the auctions into eBay. They are scheduled to start on Monday, January 28th at 1:00am PST and will run for 5 days. As soon as the listings are live, I will post the links here.

    In the meantime, please visit http://auction.affiliatesummit.com to learn more about the super affiliates that have selflessly volunteered their time for this great event to benefit the Starlight Starbright Children's Foundation.

    After you check out their profiles, I'm certain you will agree that winning any one of these fine gentleman, will prove to be an educational and fun time.

    Thanks again for all the support!
