I read the Super Affiliate Handbook. It's packed with tons of information and tells you how to actually do very little if anything about really going about setting up a campaign.
By the way, I just listened to the interview Mark had with Rosalind Gardner. I was a bit incredulous when I heard her say that there is no reason a person cannot get a sale one week after you set up a blog. I think Mark was a bit taken a back as well. Thing is, she didn't really say anything about strategy that is very much different than the general theme of other marketing guru's.
In any event, I went to check out some of Gardner's affiliate websites. They are packed with links to all kinds of affiliate programs, especially heavy on the Amazon products. Amazon's standard affiliate take is 4% of sale. Not very profitable unless you have gazillions of products and mountains of sales.
I sold a thermostat as an affiliate on Amazon and made something like 2 bucks. Cha-ching!
