I’ve been working on Affiliate Summit for eight years now, and it’s been a passion project from the start. I share that passion for everything about Affiliate Summit with my partner, Missy Ward.
Last year, we started talking about getting tattoos with our logo during Blogworld in Las Vegas and ad-tech in NYC, but we didn’t get around to it.
That changed the day before Affiliate Summit West 2011, when we took a quick trip to Club Tattoo at the Planet Hollywood Miracle Mile Shops in Las Vegas. Missy got the Affiliate Summit logo on her foot and I got inked on my calf.
Lots of folks doubted that we’d gotten real tattoos, because… who does that with their logo/brand?
Well, we are those people. Affiliate Summit has been a significant part of our lives for 8 years – 20% of my life! Such a long chapter deserves a little tat tribute to me.
And we’re not alone. Shortly after we got our tattoos, Jason Rubacky of ShareASale got one of his own for a brand he’s building: #GetSome
There are, at least, two other people who were at Affiliate Summit with tattoos of their brand.
Rae Hoffman has one of her Sugarrae logo, and Greg Hoffman has some Internet Marketing Gorilla ink.
Would you bleed for your brand?
