Speaking Event: A4d Meetup 2014

Next weekend I will be making my first, and probably last public speaking appearance.

The annual A4D Meetup is happening in San Diego, CA on June 21st, 2014 at the Hard Rock Hotel. Somewhere between 100–500 online marketers will gather for coffee, information sharing, food and drinks.

  • There will be no BS speakers and no one trying to sell you anything.
  • The information you’ll hear presented is catered for online marketers like you and I.
  • There will be some seriously heavy hitters in attendance.
  • –> It is also totally free

In my opinion, it’s the best conference of the year. At most of the bigger events (Affiliate Summit, AdTech, etc.) my friends and I all meetup at the after parties and in restaurants. The A4d Meetup is just a big version of that. Lots of big names and monster affiliates hanging out shooting the shit.

All you need are travel arrangements and a hotel room. If hotels are too pricey – check out AirBNB for San Diego. I found rooms for rent for around $60, full apartments for $150, the Hard Rock rooms are in the $300-$500 range.

I’ll be giving a 45 minute talk about ‘The Benefits of Volume’. In it, I will share tactics and tell stories of how I have rampaged and dominated on the largest traffic sources in the world for the last several years. There will be no recordings and I probably won’t share this information on the blog.

I normally wouldn’t do this. I’m not a big fan of public speaking. But I have gotten some great information from the conference in the past, and they’ve been asking me to speak for years. So when they asked this year, I figured F#ck it, I’ll do it.

So if you want to see me speak and hang out a little bit. This is probably the time.

To RSVP, get more information and see the full schedule of speakers go to the A4d Meetup Site.

Otherwise, I’ll see you there.

    Hi Malan, I can’t join the meetup but may I know how do you define high volume of traffic? 1 million target clicks per day?

    • http://malandarras.com/ Malan Darras

      Wilson, high volume is where you send so many leads, so fast that your affiliate manager starts calling, emailing and texting you messages like “OH MY GOD!!! CALL ME RIGHT AWAY, WHAT ARE YOU DOING!!?!?!??!”

      • Wilson

        Oh, that sounds very interesting!

  • Mike

    hey malan, how many leads a day do you consider as “high volume” for a single offer in a smallish country like Greece or Portugal?

    • http://malandarras.com/ Malan Darras

      high volume = enough traffic that is takes your server down and your web host calls you to see if you’re under some sort of attack
