Financial Marketing Summit 2018

15-16TH MARCH, 2018 ORLANDO,FL

Aaron sold $12 million in 24-hours –  one of the most successful product launches in the history of investment newsletters. Get his secret…

Aaron Dehoog is one of today’s hottest financial marketers.

He has a stellar track record of building publishing companies.

Aaron built Newsmax Financial from 5,000 paid customers to over 400,000 in just a few years.

He then left Newsmax and took over another small publishing business.

He built that business from $5 million to $50 million in 24-months.

Right now he is on track to break $80 million in year three.

Aaron presented at the Summit a few years ago and shared the 5-step order form test that boosted sales 165%.

That was a big part of what he did to build Newsmax’s customer base to 400,000.

Now, he is going to share how he sold $12 million of a single service in 24 hours.

Yes, $12 million in 1-day.

That’s possibly the single biggest sales day for a product in the history of investment newsletters.

This session alone will be worth the time and investment to attend The Financial Marketing Summit in Orlando, Fl March 15th & 16th, 2018.

If you’re working in financial marketing – either as a marketer, a publisher, someone who sells media, consultant, or whatever – you have to ask yourself…

… in an industry where you have companies stuck at $5 million… $10 million… or even $25 million for years and years and years …

… what is he doing to build businesses that is so dramatically different?

Find out at the 2018 Financial Marketing Summit when Aaron comes to share what’s working best in his business today.

build trader education business

See Hubert’s Proven Blue Print for building a trader education business from $0 to $6 million – even if you’re starting from scratch.

Every phase of your business faces different challenges.

And the challenges you’re facing right now always seem the biggest, the hardest, and the most difficult to overcome.

But the great thing about business is that no matter what problem you are facing, another entrepreneur has already solved it.

And the great thing about the Financial Marketing Summit is they come share their solutions.

Hubert Senters knows how to launch trader education businesses from scratch.

He did it for himself.

He’s done it for other trader educators.

Not once, not twice, but over and over and over again.

Hubert is a master of the first two phases of building a trader education company – launch and hitting the $5-$6 million mark.

And at the 2018 Financial Marketing Summit he is going to share his blueprint for going from $0 to $6 million .

Bret Holmes knows what it takes to build a financial publishing company from into one of the industry’s largest companies because he has done it.

The first time I heard the name Bret Holmes was from an exec high up in one of the Agora companies.

For about two years I heard the same thing from a bunch of industry heavy weights.

And it’s easy to see why.

Bret is the Executive Marketing Director of Money Map Press.

He was one of the key team members that built MMP from $0 into the juggernaut it is today.

Bret was there to help get it off the ground, he was actually employee #3.

He was one of the marketers in charge as it grew up.

Scaled up.

And became one of the most successful financial publishers in the industry.

You have to ask yourself, when you’re building your business,

Do you want to talk to internet marketing gurus who never worked in financial… (or worse, ones who tried and failed at financial)?

Or do you want to hear from the wannabe marketers who “deconstruct” what successful companies are doing after the fact… and from the outside… and without complete knowledge of what was going on.

Or from the washouts –  employees who couldn’t last six months working inside an A-list business but still want to sell you the “secrets” the saw second-hand.

Or, do you want to talk to a guy like Bret?

Who was actually on the front lines of the marketing, acquisitions, spends, and positioning that built a company from $0 into one of the highest selling financial publishers in the world – if not the highest?

Five minutes with a guy like that will do teach you more about what matters (and what doesn’t) then hours of content from less successful marketers.

For instance, I had lunch with Bret a few weeks back.

And he casually mentioned something in passing about what REALLY defines your ability to succeed in financial and scale your business up.

After ten years working in and around just about every financial publisher and media company in this industry I knew he was right.

But there isn’t a course you can buy on how to do it.

There’s no book being sold teaching it.

And, you’re not going to get that secret by clicking on a Facebook ad.

I’ve talked to marketers who have been in the business for a decade and STILL don’t get the point he made to me.

That’s why we wanted Bret to present at the next Summit.

Last year he brought his executive team to the Financial Marketing Summit because he wanted to let people know one thing: Money Map is open for business to potential joint venture and affiliate partners.

We asked him to come be a bigger part of the Summit this year, and lucky for all of us, he agreed.

But he had a condition.

He didn’t want to just present.

He didn’t want to just get up and talk about his successes.

It’s not his style.

He said,

Look, I don’t want to get up and talk about how awesome we are. We prefer to be low key.

“But I will answer any questions anyone has about why Agora is so successful in general.  And about what I found works and doesn’t work based on my part of building a big company from scratch.”

I said “Deal.”

We’ll be revealing more rock-star speakers in the coming weeks. 2018 is shaping up to be our best lineup of top-notch talent and speakers ever.

The #1 Networking & Marketing Conference for Financial Marketers

Financial marketing networking event

“I’m ready to buy a million dollars a month of media if we can make a deal right now.”

They were sitting at the bar after the day’s presentations were over.

He sold financial traffic.

She bought traffic to sell investment newsletters.

They were cutting a deal with the potential to transform both their businesses in the next 12-months.

And it was just the first day of The Financial Marketing Summit.

Another publisher pulled me aside to tell me, “I just wanted to thank you because just one of the introductions you made for me last year made me an extra $500,000.”

Not twenty minutes later someone else came up to thank me for hosting the Summit because, “Every time I come to the Financial Marketing Summit my life changes for the better.

Every single year at The Financial Marketing Summit…

… financial media buyers discover new sources of traffic to grow their business…

… publishers find new veteran copywriters to bring on board to create strong sales promotions…

… entrepreneurs strike million and multi-million-dollar joint venture…

… people get clients, find new superstar talent to hire, get jobs, and pave the way for the next business year to be their best on yet.

Why? Because when…

… the guy in front of you grabbing coffee runs a website getting nearly 3-million unique views from investors a month – and is looking for affiliate offers, email swap partners, and more.

… and the woman two seats to your left controls a $4 million ad budget and is hungry for new traffic sources…

… while the gentleman on your right is a copywriter who has written multiple $10+ million promotions for financial newsletters and is looking for his next opportunity…

… and you share a bagel with the managing director of a $200 million company who is here to find a variety of joint venture opportunities….

… it’s hard NOT find some of the best new business and career opportunities in financial marketing.

This is why one a perfect example of the single most common comment we get from attendees is “I did more biz dev in 2 days than I did in all of last year.”

“I met over 20 people I will be either buying media from, selling media to and possibly partnering with on future deals.”

James Stafford, Founder Oilprice.com

“In addition to this the room is packed with business owners and other very accomplished people. I met over 20 people i will be either buying media from, selling media to and possibly partnering with on future deals.“I’ve never been to anything like this before – where the top people in the industry who are spending millions to test various techniques and strategies reveal exactly what works and what doesn’t.

“This is a must attend event for anyone in the financial publishing industry.”

James Stafford
Publisher/founder Oilprice.com

 “In that two-days I did more business development than I did all of last year.”

We engineered the Financial Marketing Summit to create a flow of opportunities & practical information for financial marketers.

You’ll meet the owners and managing directors of virtually every ad network in financial today.

The founders of many of the ‘household” name companies in both trader education and investment publishing.

And several financial copywriters who’ve sold $10 million (or more!) from a SINGLE PROMOTION.

Many of the biggest media buyers in the space.

Owners & managing directors of every major performance based financial media network out there today.

On and on it goes.

Fintech Entrepreneurs, Financial Publishers, Trader Educators, Affiliates, Marketers, Media, Brokers, and nearly the entire ecosystem of financial direct response marketers.

And you’ll meet marketers from all sides of the affiliate marketing universe in financial.

  • The Top Financial Affiliate Marketers in Financial. We’ve had individual affiliates responsible for $100 million in affiliate sales… affiliates who’ve sold $250,000 in trading service products from a single email… and more.
  • Top Affiliate Managers — the Super Connectors in financial. A great affiliate manager can connect your business with dozens of big affiliates willing to promote your product and services.

  • Financial content writers, product creators & newsletter authors.
  • And more…

But you’re NOT going to just “be in the room” with these people – you’re going to connect with them.

Just being in the same room as all of these contacts is powerful.

But imagine, what if the ONE guy in the room who…

… could cut you your next million-dollar deal… hire you for your dream job… or be the biggest affiliate you’ve ever had… turned out to be a WALLFLOWER?

You might walk right past him and never know he’s there.

We know an awkward smile and a head nod isn’t going to get business done for anyone. And all of us have varying levels of comfort when we meet new groups of people.

So we’ve created a variety of opportunities to make sure you – and everyone else – makes the right connections.


Networking Session #1:

The Networking Matchmaking
Starts as Soon as You Register

When you register you’ll get a pre-event networking profile.

This is where you can list out any specific types of contacts you’re looking to meet, tell us how you can help other contacts, and give us an idea about the opportunities you’re looking for – and have to offer.

We use it to help you start connecting with the people you want to meet.

When we see an opportunity, we start making introductions for you right away – often before the event.

For example,

  • Are you looking to find new email lists you haven’t tested your offers in?
  • Do you need more affiliates to promote your products and services?
  • Are you looking for a marketing partner? Or are you a marketing agency looking for a product partner?
  • Do you need help getting more traffic?
  • Or do you want to meet conversion experts?
  • Are you looking for content creators? Whether it’s for free content or to create products, we can often put you in touch with the people you need to know.
  • Interested in selling a list, website, or business? We can connect you with several serious buyers.
  • Are you interested in potentially buying email lists, websites, or financial publishing businesses? Let us know, and we’ll include you in our buyers group so that you see all the deals coming across our table.
  • Are you looking for business partners with specific types of experience? Maybe you need an operations manager, a marketing partner, or a tech team – whatever it is, let us know and we’ll reach out and find potential candidates for you.
  • Have proven sales campaigns, but need funding to get the traffic you need to grow? There are people interested in meeting you.
  • Or something else? Let us know and we’ll put you in touch with the people who can help your business the most.

So if you have specific networking needs, join us at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Orlando and we can help you make the right connections.

Last year we helped business owners find potential buyers for their companies (and got one sold). We introduced publishers to affiliates, copywriters, and email swap partners.

On top of that, we connected advertisers and media buyers, marketing directors with new email lists, and more…

You just tell us who you’d like to meet and we’ll do our best to make the introductions you need.

But that’s just the start of the networking opportunities.

Networking Session #2:

Welcome Night Networking Hour

Starting the night before the event, on March 14th, we’re hosting a casual networking hour and registration at the DoubleTree by Hilton at Universal Studios in Orlando.

It’s gives you the opportunity to meet new and old friends.

Connect with the event organizers, speakers, and fellow attendees.

This is the first of several organized networking events at The Financial Marketing Summit.

Networking Session #3:

Speed Networking – making certain you meet EVERY contact in the room.

We’re adding a Speed Networking Session to this year’s Summit.

You’ll get 2 minutes to meet, greet, and exchange information with all the entrepreneurs, marketers, and other superstars in the room.

It’s also one of the best ways in the world to kick your event networking into overdrive.

These fun, rapid-fire, two-minute intros make certain you don’t miss the people in the room who can have the biggest impact on your business and career.

Networking Session #4:

The Financial Affiliates’ Roundtable

If you’re looking for affiliates to promote your services, then you won’t have to randomly introduce yourself to people and HOPE you’ll meet a new affiliate.

Because this year we’re putting together a round table for affiliates.

We’ll put everyone looking for affiliate products to promote, affiliate partners interested in reciprocal mailings, anyone looking to find new affiliates, etc. all together in one room.

Just bring your business cards, any information on your affiliate program that you’d like to share, and be ready to connect with potential affiliate partners capable of pushing your products.

You’ll find several of the largest affiliates in the industry attending the Summit every year.

These are the people who dominate the affiliate “leaderboards”.

You’ll also find a large mix of affiliates with various size email lists ranging from 10,000 names on up to 500,000 or more.

This is also where you can let publishers know if you’re looking to white label other people’s products. Or if you’re willing to let other affiliates white label your products.

Jami Stout will host the round table and make sure everyone gets a chance to connect.

This is the only place you can sit down in an hour and find more affiliate relationships then you would all year long otherwise.

Networking Session #5:

A Night Out on the Town With the Copywriter’s Crawl

When copywriters and creatives come to a conference, they do two things:

First, they gather in herds. I don’t know how they find each other, but at every event the creatives manage to single each other out of the crowd.

Second, they head to the bar. And usually tow a large group of people along with them.

We saw it when we held our first event in Vegas, and then at every event since.

We’ve since formalized it. And it’s been a fun night out for all the marketers who’ve attended.

You get to hang out with a lot of fun people who also happen to be some of the sharpest marketers in our industry.

This year we’ve once again tapped Angel Suarez, the irreverent, eccentric, and opinionated veteran financial copywriter to lead the crawl.

Networking Session #6:

The Deal Maker’s Session

Do you have an opportunity or deal you’d like to get in front of other entrepreneurs & marketers in financial?

If so, this is for you – we’ve put together a special session that is a mix between Shark Tank and Let’s Make a Deal.

You’ll get 5-10 minutes to get in front of our speakers, audience, and organizers to pitch your deal.

NOTE: This is not the place for presenting affiliate programs – those belong in the Affiliate Roundtable.

Rather, the Dealmaker Session is for joint ventures, strategic alliances, finding funding, and other, bigger deals.

It’s a rare chance to get an opportunity in front of a majority of the top marketers, CEOs, Founders, and entrepreneurs in the financial industry.

Networking Session #7:

You’ll Also Get the Biggest Email Swap Directory in the Financial Industry

One of the first – and most popular – formal networking resources we ever created was the Ad Swap Directory.

Anyone in financial with an email list who is interested in potential email swaps (where they send an email for you, and you send one for them) is in here.

It gives you access to roughly 5 MILLION investors and traders.

We’ve been adding to it. And it remains one of the most lucrative opportunities for financial marketers looking to expand their businesses.

You’ll find lists like,

  • A 200,000+ email list of investors interested in gold and resource investing. Shown to respond well to both low-price and high-price offers for investment products.
  • A 45,000+ email list with average open rates of 18%. This list is composed of energy professionals, investors, traders, and analysts.
  • A 70,000 name list of active traders interested in trading education.
  • A 45,000 email list of active traders signed up for information about trading options, stocks, forex, and futures.

  • Another 120,000 name list of active traders.
  • A 230,000 name list of active traders (this one you’d normally pay a $60 CPM to rent)
  • A 75,000 name list of active traders who are all RESPONDERS (this one you’d normally pay a $75 CPM to rent).
  • A 225,000 name list of active traders interested in options, Forex, and stocks.
  • A 375,000 name list of financial investors, 50% U.S. and 50% non-U.S.,  and described as “highly responsive.”

Financial marketer“Paid for itself in the first presentation. You simply can’t get this kind of insight about what is actually working in the financial newsletter industry”

David Dittman from Legacy Research “I have gone to many conferences and often times I’m skeptical of if they are worth the price of admission and hassle of travel. This one paid for itself in the first presentation. You simply can’t get this kind of insight about what is actually working in the financial newsletter industry. Thank you John and Jami for providing this valuable service. I can’t wait until the next event.”
