Back in February, I posted a variety of ways that anybody could get a free pass to Affiliate Summit East 2012. Lots of people have told us they don’t have funds to pay to attend, so we just ask that they pay attention. We announce everything on the Affiliate Summit blog, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, our weekly newsletter, and the Affiliate Summit forum. Anyhow, we are expecting about 4,500 affiliate marketers at Affiliate Summit East 2012, taking place August 12-14, 2012 in New York City, and a whole bunch of those people will be going for free. We put set up a variety of ways to get a complimentary pass to Affiliate Summit. If you’re still looking for a pass, some of these have already passed, but others are still available.
