If you’ve ever heard of the network Ads4Dough, you are about to meet Jason Akatiff aka Smaxor, the owner. Jason is sporting his signature blue baseball cap even in our TV202 interview! The Ads4Dough network is one of the rising star networks in our affiliate marketing community and here, Jason talks about being an affiliate and running his network.

Jason has a personal blog over at oooff.com which he talks about affiliate marketing and coding. We had a great time interviewing Jason and you can join his network by going here. I had the opportunity to meet all of the Ads4Dough affiliate managers during the last summit; John Yu, Roger Edwards, and Brandon are all great guys to work with. Without further ado, here is the video we did with Jason.

A look inside our Meetup202 Culture ( Video )

We had a pretty ridiculous Meetup202 SF event this saturday. There were over 65+ attendees and the place was overbooked. There we SEM professionals, high volume emailes, affiliate networks, facebook, advertisers, and of course affiliates. And if Meetup202 Bay Area wasn’t big enough, at the same time we had our event, the one and only Jasper and the Meetup202 LA group were having their event with, and held over 30 people!

Aaron Glinski the master-mind behind all of our new video series shot this one, and added in some effects. Although this video doesn’t do it absolute justice because at the time we shot it many people had already left. Most of the group after the meetup got something to eat, and then we went to a lounge and talked till almost 3AM in the morning. Prosper202 isn’t just a product, Prosper202 is a community of like-minded people getting together and helping eachother succeed. This is what Meetups are all about, and in this video you’ll get a glimpse inside of our culture.

And if you’ll be heading over to the Ad:Tech SF event coming this April, make sure to register on our group to check out the Meetup202 event we’ll be hosting while everyone is in SF.
