Affiliate Summit Session Videos, Transcripts, Audio and Presentation Slides

If you are a regular Affiliate Summit attendee and newsletter subscriber then you already know that Shawn Collins published all available Affiliate Summit video recordings from the past two years for free on the web. It is not necessary that you have been an attendee of the event in order to be able to access the content.

In order to be able to access the password protected area of the site with the videos, is it necessary that you request the username and password here. You will ask to subscribe to the affiliate summit email newsletter “Real Deal” in exchange for the access. That is not much to ask in return for over 70 videos, over 13 gigabytes, several dozens of presentation slides and more. You will not lose access to the content if you should decide to unsubscribe from the newsletter, but why should you?

Update: A special domain is now available to access the Affiliate Summit videos at

Video recordings are available for the Affiliate Summit East 2006, West 2007, East 2007 and West 2008. Shawn also published in the past some videos for free and also transcripts, audio recordings and presentation slides via either the Affiliate Summit blog or his Affiliate Tip blog. He does not refer to all of that c ontent from the new pages that contain the videos of the past four US shows. There is also no reference to any content from the Affiliate Summit 2007 UK show in London.

The old sites, such as and now redirect to the new pages.Here is a list of all the sessions from the four US shows with links to additional content that cannot be found (yet) at Shawns website, including content from AS London. Furthermore are there numerous other references to resources and content related to the Affiliate Summit conferences, including a brief outlook at the upcoming Affiliate Summit events and reasons for why you should attend one, if you have not already done so.

Additional Affiliate Summit Content and Resources

And last but not least a post of mine that I wrote at Affiliate Summit West in February that discusses the question that I hear from people who think about attending a conference, but never did, all the time: “ What is the Value of Attending Real Life Conferences?“. I hope that my rather long post will clarify that a bit and will convince the one or the other to get beyond the “thinking about” step this time.

  1. Thanks for detailing the Affiliate Summit resources.

    We didn't record the sessions in London, so those will forever just be available in the minds and hearts of the attendees there.

  2. You are welcome, feel free to use any of this for your pagess. I know that you had stuff all over the place so I started digging up the interesting stuff from … well all over the place and put them together in just one place hehe. I did it just for me and then thought, heck, others might spend time on the same thing.. now they don't have to anymore. I hope that I got everything. 🙂

  3. Hey nice blog my friend. Affiliate marketing is the fastest growing business in world. However its not that easy as it looks. Obviously you need advanced knowledge about

    affiliate marketing . If you are dead and broke , you can learn most of the startup tricks via marketing forums.
