Introducing Jason ...

Hi, my name is Jason and this is my first day working as the new technical copywriter for Affilorama. I'm looking forward to getting to know you over the coming months and learn more about the challenges you face building a successful affiliate site.

What does a technical copywriter do? Essentially a technical copywriter is a combination of two disciplines: technical writing and copywriting. They do share a lot of similarities with the main difference being that a technical writer is more focused on informing unlike copywriters who are mostly writing to persuade. So this means I'll be looking to write blog posts or lessons on Affilorama that capture your imagination and try to teach something at the same time - the best of both writing worlds :).

Lastly, a bit about me. I previously worked for MYOB as a technical writer then migrated to the marketing services team, specialising in online marketing and web development. So, while being relatively new to the affiliate business, I come with a strong understanding of small business management and the ensuing fun and frustrations. I'm looking forward to learning more about this business and will be busy over the coming weeks researching affiliate sites and polling you all on your valuable insights in this exciting industry. I look forward to getting your input!

Since this is my first day (and I'm just hoping to get through the day without forgetting anyone's name or blowing up the office kettle) I'd like to hear from you what 'first day tips' you have for me, or what you remember from your first day at a new job.

Look forward to hearing from you ...

ps Do you like my avatar picture? Just let me know if you'd like to add something similar to your Affilorama profile.

Hi Jason,
Welcome to Mark's team.
Mark's a pretty switched on guy so for him to hire you must mean
your a smart guy yourself. Congrats.
hmmm, starting day tips?
Stay true to yourself and get some exercise if sitting down too long?

Wow, You mean to tell me you get an office kettle.. wow..what benefits you have..lol
Does Mark provide cookies and cream? lol... If so then your company benefits rock dude.
Oh and your avatar, I don't mean to be rude but your photo sort of
looks like a cartoon character, either that or you ate some bad shellfish, I would fire your photographer dude.. he he :)
Love the hair though, very cool.

Regards
Troy

they were the big things.

Great to hear from you Troy and thanks for the welcome! and yes, I'll follow that advice - Im a firm believer that if you have a desk job you need to balance the scales with something other than sitting down! Fortunately there's a gym nearby so no excuses!

Appreciate the honest feedback about the avatar - when I designed it using the Manga avatar wizard I did go a little crazy; I do have blue eyes and blonde hair but the rest was just my imagination getting the better of me.

Hope you're coping with the heat ok over there, its been in the mid-thirties here in Christchurch - but I know how hot it can get in MLB, fortunately I found myself a surfboard and headed off to Mornington beach!
