A lot of you know that I came from the world of affiliate marketing. The term means a lot of things to a lot of people (and some of them not good), but to me, simply, it means online commissioned sales. It’s a smart way to leverage what we have in front of us.
You think Amazon got all those people to put links back to their site cause they loved the company?
And, obviously, affiliate marketing has been much better to Amazon than it has any of their affiliates – but that is another post all together.
Nancy Hults is putting together a training program for those interested in affiliate marketing called “Instant Affiliate Secrets.” I’ll be honest with you, it is a very “old school” training approach but, if you look at the lineup she’s put together – Tellman Knudson, Ken McArthur, Willie Crawford, Tracy Repchuk, Frank Sousa, Corey Lewis, and myself – this starts to get interesting.
In short, give her your name and email – and she’ll give you access to all of the calls.
I’ll be chatting about affiliate marketing within the world of Podcasting and how it all fits together. I’ll also be offering some behind the scenes looks at Premiumcast.com and how the affiliate engine for that is, in my never to be humble opinion, fixed to changed the Podcasting space dramatically.
If this is of interest to you, I really recommend that you sign up. Nancy will honor all unsubscribe requests, etc. if you decide to send them in.
Sidebar: Make sure you listen to the Podcast Brother’s show next week. They’ll be announcing the affiliate program for the New Media Expo 2008 recordings. Yes, there is a grand scheme at play here.
