Having returned from the Amsterdam Affiliate Conference where we met a host of new affiliate business owners, spoke in depth – about start up cultures and business mentoring we wanted to share some inspiration to help you start your week.
Creating and running your affiliate business is tough work and you might find yourself falling out of love with it quite quickly. When you feel like this, it’s great to be able to look around the industry to find speakers and leaders who can identify with your journey and possibly help you get your spark back.
AffiliateFEST is one of these events that has been designed to help affiliate businesses to grow, network and come together to learn about new digital trends outside of their own business sector. Asides from our headline speakers that have already being showcased ahead of this exclusive event , here are some of our next favourite inspirational speakers.
If you’re feeling like you need a pep talk online, then Andy Cohen has a vast library of videos to browse through. From Ted Talks to audiences at Google, he’s undoubtedly one of the most watched gurus out there. His core message is about The Assumpt, which will help you to challenge your assumptions on the world of business.
If you think you know it all and want someone to turn that on its head, then this is the speaker for you. This can get your creative juices flowing in the right direction and push you to try something new. As entrepreneurs, we didn’t start out to do everything the same as others in our industry, but it can end up that way. Refresh your way of thinking and you might just start leading the pack instead.
Another one of the greats, Robin Sharma has a laundry list of high profile clients. He tends to focus on the basics but then builds on them as his series of videos go on. Whether you struggle to get up early or to stay productive, he’ll push you in the right direction. His videos do have more of a spiritual vibe so he may not be exactly right for you if you don’t gel with this style of open thinking.
As you progress through his teachings, you should be feeling more productive. If you become a member of the 5am Club, then you could fit more hours into your day and increase your productivity.
While you might think of Neil Patel as more of a marketing guru, however there’s a lot of motivation to be had from his advice. If you struggle to get out into the market and try new things then this is the perfect person for you to follow. With inventive tips and tricks, you can pick up a lot from this famous face.
You can use this to get into the mind set of being inventive for yourself. Instead of following all of his marketing tips, this might mean that you come up with a few of your own. Taking risks and trying these new things don’t always work out exactly the way you want, but this shouldn’t discourage you from trying none the less.
If you want a piece of business motivation added to your Twitter feed daily then Tony Robbins is a good personality to follow. Whether you’re struggling with managing risks or want to be more confident within meetings, you can glean some interesting tips here. He also produces some great short pieces of video content on his social media platforms, which are entertaining to watch as well as being helpful too.
He’s a great all-rounder if you’re looking to work on more than one element of your personal development. Paying attention to these different tips will help you to get more out of your journey as an entrepreneur.
He’s outspoken, but he tells it straight and he’s a force to be reckoned with. Having built two businesses (his family wine business) and an independent digital media business (VaynerMedia) his no nonsense approach to digital can really be inspirational once you get used to his straight forward style of delivery.
If you want to really fall back in love with your affiliate business, make sure you book your ticket for AffiliateFEST. It’s FREE and is packed with a host of detailed insights and digital learning that will help you get a competitive edge and might even change the way run your business going forward.
