The Winners of The Affiliate Summit West Gold Passes

This was without a doubt the hardest contest I have ever judged. I received so many great entries for my Affiliate Summit Gold Pass contest that I had to spend almost an entire day trying to choose the ten winners. I wish I could have given away more passes because there were so many fantastic entries.

In the end, I selected a group that I think represents a nice range of experience, skill level and background. I think everyone on the list will get a lot out of Affiliate Summit and I hope you take the knowledge you learn from it and run with it. All your entries were awesome and I look forward to meeting you. Congrats to the following winners.

  • Darryl Tott
  • Syed Balkhi
  • Shaina Peterson
  • Rob Merlino
  • Bruce Clancy
  • Joseph Ritchie
  • Charles Bohannan
  • Hugh Kimura
  • Geoff Richards
  • Joseph Taylor III

Not only have the winners won a free pass to ASW11, they’ll all be VIP guests at a party I’m sponsoring at the The Hardwood Suite at The Palms on January 10. This 10,000 square feet suite is the only hotel room in the world with its own basketball court. How cool is that?

I’ll see you guys in Vegas. And don’t worry, Hugh Kimura will not be rapping!

  2. Hello John,

    I just wanted to take a moment and tell you “Thank You!” for the Gold Pass to Affiliate Summit West! I truly feel this event will provide the benchmarking and instruction and experience needed to rocket our affiliate marketing into orbit and keep it there.

    Meant every word in my entry post. Already started on using your methodology to get a Clickbank site up this week. Looking forward to the party and the socializing. I promise to make it to you to shake your hand and Thank You personally.

    Take Care,

    Congrats to all of the winners! 🙂 I think I’m a little more jealous about the VIP access to the party now!

      I agree with you Kristi; there’s a smidgen of jealousy lurking around somewhere. However, I am happy for all the winners.

      Congratulations guys!

  4. Rob Merlino says:

    Very Cool indeed! Thanks for picking me to attend the Affiliate Summit as your guest. I’m looking forward to the learning experience and some quality time at the craps table. The party sounds fun too.

    I meant what I said about that hot dog- there are some fine hot dog joints in Vegas and I’d LOVE to do a post on Hot Dog Stories with you as a guest dogger.

    See you in Vegas!

  6. Congratulations to the winners! I also wish I had access to that.

  7. Kirk Taylor says:

    To the winners, you are going to have a great time! I won last year and I can’t thank John enough for introducing me to Affiliate Summit!

    I would have loved to won this year, however. Being a VIP at the party would have been a great reward! Any chance of getting an invite to your party?

  8. PPC Ian says:

    Congrats to the winners! It should be an amazing event! You can’t beat Vegas and you definitely can’t beat the Wynn.

  9. John!

    I owe you! Thank you so much for choosing us to attend ASW! I appreciate the invitation to the party as well. I’m sure we’ll all have a blast. I look forward to meeting all of you, and sharpening my marketing skills. 🙂

  11. Hugh Kimura says:

    Thanks John! Looking forward to meeting everyone and learning a lot.

  12. STOKED! Thanks so much John, all 10 of us are truly excited to start 2011 with an event like Affiliate Summit West. And the VIP party to boot!!!

    I truly look forward to meeting you and all the others in Vegas in January. You won’t be disappointed, that I promise. Aloha

  13. Darryl Tott says:

    Wanted to say a big thank you to John for selecting me as one of the ten winners. I am really looking forward to meeting all the winners and especially John.

    The flights for the UK are being booked tomorrow and accommodation sorted as soon as possible. New camera equipment to purchase and a coverage strategy to produce.

    I cannot wait for the experience

  14. Syed Balkhi says:

    Thanks John for the awesome opportunity. I hope the room comes with B. Balls… because I want to shoot some hoops…

  15. Atniz says:

    Congratulations guys. I wish to visit more frequent your site now. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have missed this contest. Hope to see next one soon.

  16. Abhik says:

    Congratulations to the winners.. Hope you’ll share your experiences with all of us.

  17. BenSpark says:

    I’m very happy that my friend Rob won. He’s fun to hang out with and will be able to find the best hot dogs in Vegas. His adventures in searching for the perfect food are great. We meet up from time to time and it will be great to see him go to this conference.

    That party sounds awesome. A basketball court in it, fantastic!

    1. Rob Merlino says:

      Com Pho dogs you say? That could be a stretch!

      Just for S&G’s, I plan on going to Slots O Fun for their 1 pound hot dog. Supposedly not the best dog in the world, but it’s iconic: it was featured on The Hot Dog Program.

  18. It is really a hard thing to choose 10 winners from so many commenters.

    Congratulations to all winners and I will also try next time, maybe.

  19. fas says:

  21. Congratulations to the winners.

    Maybe next time I can win!

  22. Steve says:

    OMG! That rap is terrible. Please take back his ticket! 🙂

  23. NewsEruption says:

    Congrats to all of the winners! Hope to see next one soon

  24. Ha, I think the rap is funny…

  25. Congratulations to all the winners of the summit, hope next list will have my name also.

  26. I shall go next year, it’s all about information, the more you hear the more chances you will have for success
