As this blog comes back from the dead, its important to realize that any post that is older than 2015, (essentially all of them except the previous one) is worthless.
Things move fast in the internet marketing world and if you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it (-Ferris).
Its not like selling rolls of plastic bags, which happens to be something I tried to do for several months in 2006. You could literally sell the same plastic bags 10 years later and people will still buy them.
With internet / affiliate marketing so much has changed even in the last 2 years. Google Adwords for example suspends affiliate Adwords accounts for almost anything nowadays. This wasnt the case when I used Adwords in 2010.
The truth is that the basic model of success for affiliate marketing hasnt really changed but a lot of the components involved has. For example, Facebook advertising was all that popular back then and now its one of the critical elements to having a successful marketing campaign.
Anyway, ‘nough said. Dont apply any of the information in the old posts it might take you somewhere you dont want to be.
