I gave my First Timers Orientation for Affiliate Summit West 2013 session at 10:00 AM, and I was glad to see a packed crowd of folks eager to learn how to optimize their time at the conference.

This was followed by sixteen breakout sessions throughout the day that covered coupons, video marketing, social media, WordPress, productivity, local advertising, and more topics.

This was followed by the Newcomer Program meetup, and then everybody heading out for their Affiliate Summit evening plans.

I checked out the ShareASale Under The Stars Masquerade Party at the Chateau Rooftop at Paris Hotel.

There were lots of entertaining costumes, but nothing came close to the grandeur of Adam Riemer’s get-up.
