Doing The Infolinks Boggie Dance

The Blog World Expo show floor featured about 100 exhibitors showing off their wares. As you can imagine, trying to capture the attention of show goers can be a challenge. Infolinks came up with a novel approach to grab people’s eyeballs. Do a boggie dance!

As part of their African Safari promotion, Infolinks hired a bunch of dancers to do a traditional African dance every 30 minutes. While the show goers enjoyed the performance, I’m not sure how the booth next door felt about it after the third or fourth boggie.

In addition to the Infolinks dance, the video features Syed and I getting into trouble (again) by throwing footballs at people. Enjoy!

    I’ve got to get to The Blog World Expo next year! Other than the information, what are the main benefits of going?

    1. John Chow says:

      Networking and meeting other bloggers.

    2. You will also get materials to post on your blog … Like John is getting.

      But you need to have same enthu

      1. PPC Ian says:

        That is true. Also, you don’t have to wait till next year. There should be one in Las Vegas later this year!

    3. Networking. The most valuable reason to go.

    I’m not sure how I felt about the dance after the first minute, let alone all day long!

    1. Kevin Kimes says:

      I thought it was a pretty neat presentation. But the 2nd time would get repetitive. The nth time would get downright annoying.

      Feel bad for all the presenters in the immediate area, especially for the inevitable moments that they’re trying to talk to prospective new business contacts when one of these breaks out.

      1. PPC Ian says:

        Yeah, it cant be too fun for the booths close by. But, I think that’s part of the fun in it all, seeing the look on the faces of the competitors/other booths!

    2. After every half an hour is I think too much …. May be 4 or 5 times will be good enough in one whole day.

    1. Yeah bro this is a big sport show time too I guess

    2. Yeah thanks for bringing smile to our face ….

    3. Jayrweblog says:

      Haha, funny thing about that.

  3. Make Money says:

    LOL, good to see that they are having some fun!

    1. John always have the fun and with that we have too fun as well …

      That’s why we always wait for the john attend these kind of events.

    Good stuff. InfoLinks went all out with their exhibit hall dance crew. They had a perfect location for this on the exhibit hall floor as well. Not too many other exhibitors or freebies at BlogWorld this time around…

    1. No freebies …. John will miss them a lot and we will miss video of those funny acts …

  5. I can see promoters discouraging this after it catches on…no one wants to be left on the sidelines…I can see the amount of networks trying something like this increase for visibility…soon it’ll be a carnival ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Quite agree with you … What if everyone started like this get attention

      1. PPC Ian says:

        That would be truly crazy! I love it! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. fazal mayar says:

    cool stuff, this looks like a great even. I may go next year if im starting to be popular.

    1. Develop the relation … I think you should start joining now.

      You never know which contact can open the gate for you.

  7. Great links & great event!

  8. What else will they think next time! lol

    1. May be we will be able to see John’s dance.

  9. John,
    Infolinks is cool and it does well on my blog. I only have it set to five per page, it looks like you have it set to less than that.

    The dancing reminded me of a festival. Cool video thanks for sharing.

    1. Jayrweblog says:

      mine too, infolinks is next to my adsense as one of my primary monetization tool.

  10. Never tried infolinks – how do they compare to using Adsense?

    Aren’t they all CPA?

    1. Infolinks is less intrusive then adsense. Infolinks is the blue underlined words that you see on John’s website. When you hover your mouse over the underlined word an add pops up. You get money when someone clicks on the add.

      I get clicks almost everyday from infolinks. Also you can set how many words that you want to be underlined on your blog. It’s from one to twelve I believe. I have mine set to five on my blog. Too many underlined words may be a turn-off to your readers.

    2. Huge difference between adsense and infolinks. Infolinks works on your texts while adsense clearly shows on your page.

      1. Adsense doesn’t clearly show on the page if you blend it well and its even harder to notice if you are a ‘premium’ adsense member

      2. Jayrweblog says:

        But adsense pays better than infolinks, lol.. I love both infolinks and adsesnse anyways.

  11. Louie Sison says:

    Looks like you really had a nice time.

    1. John always have my friend …

  12. Great event seems thanks for uploading the videos

  13. Really amazing funny dance. Seems to be they danced with more tough. I wonder how they danced every 30 minutes.. Anyway great dance and It’s very fun.!

    1. simply to get more attention ….

    2. Jayrweblog says:

      Funny thing is that it makes us laugh by their dance, lol.

      1. With this kind of dance their booth will always be center of attraction.

  14. Kevin Kimes says:

    These videos are great! Your shenanigans are reminding me of the crazy road trips my buddies and I used to take to the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3).

    1. fazal mayar says:

      yep, the internet lifestyle is all about travelling while being successful online!

  15. Looks great event!!i have seen videos these are awesome like john….
    John you are so entertainer man….

  18. fas says:

    1. Jayrweblog says:

  21. Haha John please say you do this dance???

    1. Boy I would love to see John’s dance steps … Infact I requested John so many times to add posts of his cooking but so far no success …

  22. doroki says:

    This is the marketing strategy for InfoLink. Some thing funny and dancing platform like this will attract the attention of lot of people. Seems show was great.

  23. They were using some steps from the folk dance of west India its called garba.

  24. Different kind of marketing strategy used by infolinks

    Hi John,
    When I saw the title of this, I thought it was going to be about something similar to the ‘Google Dance’ as when I added infolinks to my site my traffic practically stopped! I left it on there for two weeks to see if it increased, but no. In the end I took it off, and traffic is now back! You can see the site I put it on at – shelley bailey

    I also have adsense on this site, and I know you have said Google are fine with both, (as it is on your site) but it definitely destroyed my traffic. I hadn’t changed anything else, and my page position on front page of Google did not change, so any thoughts?

  26. Infolinks are looking best when comparing to other affiliate networks

  27. Forex News says:

    cool stuff, this looks like a great even

    mine too, infolinks is next to my adsense as one of my primary monetization tool.
