Associate Programs Newsletter #486
Allan often likes to joke about the ultimate affiliate marketing offer. You know, the one where someone does it all for you; the research, the site building, the traffic generation and the sales. All you need to do is sit back and watch the money pile up in the bank.
Imagine a push button system where you type in your name and money comes out the other end… sounds like something a “guru” might sell from stage doesn’t it? Actually, I heard a couple of people try to do that recently. Sitting there, I wondered what the odds were that it would work before the people who bought it ran out of money.
While Allan’s dream system will probably never come on the market, well, at least not until we iron the bugs out of it LOL, there is one very successful affiliate marketer, Dan Ho, who offers many of the hard steps done for you. Better still, he has not only just released a range of updates but he has an excellent track record and you'll learn as you move forward together.

3) My Week – At the Speed of Light
What week? It only seems like yesterday I was sitting here writing! I really don't seem to have time to scratch myself at present but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Hopefully it's a sign that I'm progressing forward 🙂
Things are also moving forward with our new AssociatePrograms site redesign and we hope to bring it to you soon. Nothing too wild but you’ll see a clean, more modern interface to fit with today’s styles. We’re not removing anything so the forums and articles will all still be there but lots of backend streamlining is happening. I’m really looking forward to working with it.
On the marketing side, I’ve been watching the changes happening to search with the latest being that Bing is going to integrate Facebook Likes into their results. Not sure what that will mean for rankings but I suggest you put a “Like” button on every article page on your site. Oh, and make sure you “Like” each page yourself. There are plenty of plugins that will help you to do this and Facebook themselves offer the coding if you do a search.
Remember, you can “friend us” at:
Anyway, have a profitable week!
