Affiliate contests & prizes - do these motivate you?

7th March, 2010 - Posted by Sandra Sims

Marco -- I have usually seen them only from Oct-Dec and they are sponsored by the merchant, the affiliate management company and/or the portal (CJ, shareasale, etc.). If you are signed up for a particular merchant you'll usually find out about it. But I haven't been promoting consumer goods for awhile so haven't been in the loop. Troy --...

Lessons I have Learned from My Failures

6th March, 2010 - Posted by Sandra Sims

Chrisi, Thank you for sharing! I have had many of the same experiences. When I have not succeeded at one niche or another, or a particular website it was often because of FOCUS. I was doing too many things at one time and didn't devote enough to one particular site. On PPC I only use Adwords when I can track conversions. There have been a...

6th November, 2009 - Posted by Sandra Sims

The books are all authored or co-authored by myself, with the exception of the 5K Run/Walk Book. I originally found the authors on Problogger.net job board and hired them has bloggers a little over a year ago.

Great idea for ebook publishers and affiliates

4th November, 2009 - Posted by Sandra Sims

Alayna, sales generate around $2000 a month. So far my books are for nonprofits though and they can be pretty stingy with new purchases, esp. in this economy! You can see the ebooks I have here. I run the affiliate program through the 1ShoppingCart module (info here) with the exception of the (Broken Link) which is on Clickbank.
