On August 15th through the 17th, the Affiliate Summit East was held at the Hilton Hotel in New York City. Superb Internet featured their web hosting offerings to internet marketers. Affiliates are internet marketers who monetize online traffic whether it is from having websites to sending out emails. Although affiliate marketers have been stigmatized as being unscrupulous, many legitimate businesses using the internet are affiliates. On a basic level, affiliate marketing is a method of monetization by referring traffic to businesses. When that traffic makes a purchase, the original traffic [affiliate] receives credit for it. Simply put, it is very similar to displaying ads on websites. In any case, I managed to meet the director of sales and product manager for Superb Internet. They are very chill and knowledgeable, being able to give great tips on how to improve any website. It is reassuring to know that there are employees at Superb Internet who are real smart.

Affiliate Summit East 2010 New York - Superb Internet

Superb Internet has a great product offering for affiliate marketers. In particular, I like how their IP addresses are so cheap. You can get them for $1 per IP as long as you purchase a dedicated server. Their cheapest dedicated server will cost $59 per month and includes 2 IPs. If you do the math, a 100 IPs will be just $157 per month with a server to use for anything. Best of all, Superb Internet is a solid web hosting company with a great reputation which translates into clean IP addresses. They are one of the larger web hosting companies around so they will have plenty of class C IP addresses available.

For those affiliate marketers starting out, Superb Hosting has a great web hosting package that I consider to be a huge value, their Grid Iron web hosting. Their cheapest plan starts at just $4.99 per month and you can have a website up and running in no time with the convenience of their one-click application install of WordPress, Joomla, or Drupal. For the beginners out there, start off using WordPress. This platform is one of the easiest ways to put a website up. Although WordPress was conceived as a blogging solution, it is widely used to manage other types of websites, even e-commerce stores. Most importantly, WordPress is awesome for SEO meaning it is search engine friendly. A website that is optimized for search engines will allow customers to find your website easier.

I have to say, Superb Internet had the absolute best gift they were giving out during the Affiliate Summit conference… a funnel s a.k.a. beer bong! I’ve been to a lot of these conferences and I have a huge stack of thumb hard drives, pens, water bottles, key chains, flash lights, and such. A beer bong is so unique. It is a good thing I was able to pick it up because I heard they ran out of it. Overall, the Affiliate Summit East was pretty good to meet folks within the industry as well as picking up some new tips. I highly recommend this event to any aspiring affiliate marketer.
