Disclosure: If I'm not making money through affiliate links on the post you're currently reading, it's an oversight on my part and will be corrected soon.

Affiliate Summit East 2013 is on schedule to sell out in early to mid August, based on sales patterns of past Affiliate Summits.

Don’t be a sad clown who has to experience the conference vicariously through social media.

This will be the biggest Affiliate Summit East to date with more than 4,000 affiliate marketers attending.

There are already more than 1,125 companies registered so far. Check out the list on the main Affiliate Summit East 2013 page.

Affiliate Summit East 2013, the premier affiliate marketing conference, is taking place August 18-20, 2013 in Philadelphia.

Affiliate Summit will feature an exhibit hall and Meet Market with hundreds of booths and tables. There are a limited number of sponsorships still available.

The “Small Business Influencer Awards” are back for 2013 and nominations are now open.

Produced by Small Business Trends and Small Biz Technology and brought to you by BlackBerry, the Small Business Influencer Awards honor companies, organizations, apps and people who have made a significant impact on the North American small business market.

In 2011, I was recognized as a Small Business Influencer Champion and had a wonderful time at the official Awards Gala held in New York City.

You can nominate your favorite small business influencers in any of the following six categories:

  • News Outlets (media companies)
  • Corporations (providers of products and services to the small business market)
  • Media (individual journalists, reporters, broadcasters, bloggers)
  • Leaders (executives or other key employees that are part of corporations serving the small business market)
  • Experts (mavens, authors, speakers, consultants)
  • Apps (software, mobile apps, tablet apps)
  • If your nominee fits the criteria, head on over and nominate them for a 2013 Small Business Influencer Award today.

    Nominations close September 9, 2013 at 11:59 pm PDT.
